Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Product fits and is exactly what was needed for my youth bowler who's shoe size is growing. I've purchased Dexter(s) for his last 3 pair(s)...

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.
I advise when you buy these shoes get some easy slide.

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.

Dirt clings to them easy
Casual Dresser, League use is great, Tournament Play
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.

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
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.

Comfortable, perfect for league play on the lanes I regularly bowl on
Comfortable, Stability In Approach, Traction sole
League play, Tournament Play
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.
Less than a year and they are done.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
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.
Lightweight, Stability In Approach
Too Stiff, Uncomfortable, Wear Quickly
Fill Your Trashcan
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.
Good fit, seem to be well made
the slider doesn't.
Walking the dog
The slider doesn't slide even with repeated applications of slide powder. Can't return them because "Santa" didn't know she had to save the bag they came in. Besides, with the hefty RESTOCKING fee It probably wouldn't be worth the effort. I had to go back to my old Dexter shoes which are great except the stitching on the side has come apart. My old ones have replaceable soles. Maybe I can take the old sole and contact cement it onto the new shoe. That should work.
The right shoe Sole is tearing up
One of the shoes feel apart one day after a year no warranty
Wear Quickly, the slide shoe material was so thin it was worn
my son ordered a pair of dexter shoes also and they are the same way company seems like it just takes your money and too bad if the merchandise is bad just get runaround
shoes have not worked as expected
I liked this shoe, TILL IT SPLIT ACCROSS THE SOLE IN THE CENTER OF THIS LEFT SHOE.
Leaves a mark on the lane
Good shoe, but they are the only shoes I have owned that have left scuff marks on the lane.

Is this sole on the slide shoe interchangeable?
No, this shoe has a fixed S8 sole on the slide foot.
do they come in wide widths
Hello Ron! This shoe in particular does not come in wide width, but here is a link to the men's shoes on our site that do: https://www.bowling.com/search/shoe-selector.aspx?bpgender=16&bpwidth=15
If you're not someone who slides, would this shoe still work just as well?
Hello Suzanne! That's a bit of a tough question to answer specifically because I don't know exactly how you bowl. This shoe will have a slide sole on the left foot and a traction sole on the right. You might want to look into getting a rental shoe or at least a shoe with universal soles (slide soles on both feet) if you don't use the traditional bowling technique.
