These are comfortable shoes and affordable. They are slippery after about a week of solid use. The rubber picks up all the dirt and particles so cleaning them before each throw is recommended. If somebody spills water or you find a wet spot might as well trade the shoes out until they dry completely. I would recommend thus far. I throw a hook ball: Roto Grip Critical Theory and Psycho Raw Hammer. Best of luck to who ever purchases these awesome shoes. I also have plantar fasciitis and these seem to support my arch pretty good without inserts.

Pro performance at a reasonable price!!!
I bowl at least twice a week between league and practice, my buddies were telling me I need a shoe with a traction sole for more consistency, boy were they right! Pro performance at a reasonable price... I was way more consistent at the line. True to size I went 1/2 size over as in my last Dexter's these have more room but i don't mind. I'm never going back to dual slide. Fixed slide sole and fixed traction sole not interchangeable.

Great price for performance shoes
These shoes are a great step up from universal bowling shoes. If you plan on traveling to tournaments or various leagues in different alleys, I would recommend getting shoes that have interchangeable soles and heels. But if you're just looking for a basic shoe that is a step up from universal shoes, you won't have any complaints about these ones. They're very comfortable and feel more like bowling shoes whereas universal shoes feel like glorified sneakers. The traction shoe may take a couple of games to get used to, but if you hang in there, it will help increase your speed on the ball and after awhile, you'll forget that you have a traction shoe. Before these shoes, I was averaging about 15.6 - 15.9 mph on my ball speed and after a few games with these shoes, my speed went up to 15.9 - 16.2 mph. It may not seem like a big difference, but any serious bowler knows otherwise. What happens is the traction shoe allows the bowler to get a better push off on their approach, which adds to your ball speed. Another plus about having a traction shoe is that it helps with your balance since you won't have a slide sole on your push off foot. You'll feel more secure and balanced with these shoes. I would highly recommend these shoes to anyone, especially since they're available at a great price.

Im a righty but my left, non-slide shoe, has totally fallen apart(sole is coming apart, toe is worn almost through) in less than 6months. I know these aren't supposed to be the greatest shoes, but they should last through a year.

Great Bowling shoe for the Money!
For the money this is a good right handed bowlers shoe. I like a shoe with a slide on only the left shoe and this shoe does it for well under $100.

These shoes are not worth buying

Would buy again
Took a chance on this shoe and turned out as described. Fits well, looks well, and comfortable. Would purchase again. Time will tell as far as durability.

Good shoe at a good price
My friends bowling bag was stolen when he was away on his honeymoon. I had purchased this shoe for me in 2016. I offered to buy him new shoes for his birthday and he went thru the website, picked this style out, not knowing that I had the same shoes. He loves them

Wore out too soon
I thought reading the other reviews that maybe it was because of the way the other bowlers treated the shoes, but I found that even with my wearing them once a week they wore out way too soon.
