Great starter shoe or great for a bowler looking to get out of those rental shoes and into their own! A custom fit and a vintage look drive the Ricky II to greatness. Let it help you reach the skill level you’ve been working to achieve.
I bowl in 3 leagues and am pleased with the comfort of these shoes. They have not helped my score any, but That wasn't part of the deal.
The price was very reasonable.
I ordered online and they arrived the next day. I figured it would take 3 or 4 days. Very good.
Bought these as a gift for beginning bowler. Perfect fit, great price [...] I will use this site again for sure.
My kids are signed up for the Kids Bowl Free program this summer, so we are going bowling three or four times a week. Rental shoes quickly added up. Did a lot of research for an inexpensive bowling shoe and found these. Looked at a lot of websites, and decided that Bowling.com had the best all-around deal. I wear a 14 2E in New Balance sneakers, so I got the 14W. They fit great, and look far better than the "clown" shoes for rent at the local lanes. I would have given these 5 stars except for the fact that I hate the laces. Something about the feel of them I can't stand and seem very cheap. I'm sure I will replace the laces very soon.
this is great its comgortable but at times v=can be stiff but good for young adults cant get better for the price!!
I love the style and comfort of these shoes and they fit spot on. They appear to be very well made and for a casual family bowler, they will provide years of great use and bowling fun. The price was an added plus and the great service from bowling.com put these over the top.
Perfect for the price.
The shoe is comfortable and lightweight. Not the best shoe for a serious bowler.
The only real negative is the loose metal shoelace rings. Might be okay after years of wear, but straight from the box is a little disappointing.
Good entry level shoes for the price. They are either for left hand or right hand bowlers. Although after entering league play, they are not going to cut it because they get dirty soon, hard to clean and eventually you'll want something with more features.
I am in my first league this year. I started out with an average of ninety-five. Between these shoes and my Onyx Vibe ball, I have yet to throw under a one thirty, with my two highest games being a one eighty and a one ninety one. The teams we bowl against have accused me of sandbagging, but these two products have just improved my game this much
Good shoe, comfortable and slides well. Have to wait and see how durable they are before giving them that 5th star.
I bought these bowling shoes because its inexpensive. To tell you the truth I am not a fan of the shoes. The fit is kind of weird it doesn't give you much stability when you are trying to bowl hooks. Buy them if you just need something to bowl in and if you don't want to waste money on renting shoes but honestly I like the rental one's better than this.
fits true to your casual shoes
I haven't had the opportunity to actually bring these out on the lanes yet, but I have worn them around the house to break them in a bit. It is a very comfortable shoe, and is styled just like shoes I would wear every day.
This shoe is great. I bought them from a local proshop a few weeks ago and i have loved them ever since. This shoe gives great stability when coming up on the line and gives just the right amount of slide. For the price this shoe definately delivers on performance.
You can't go wrong for the price. Feel great. If you're looking to save a few $'s, buy these shoes. [...]
comfortable and look like sneakers
These shoes are used for tourny play and league play. For sliding purposes these shoes are perfect. Overall these shoes perform great.
These bowling shoes are true to size. For general information, I wear a Nike 9.5 and I purchased the same size which fits perfectly.
Surprisingly, out of the box these shoes seems to be very stiff, however that did not bother me once I started to bowl. I didn't have any rubbing issues, blisters or sore feet after 3 1/2 hours of bowling the first time I wore them.
I wish it had the option to change out the bottom slider things but you get what you pay for, and it was quite a bargain for casual bowlers. Way better than stinky rental shoes!
These shoes are definately worth the money!
This shoes are excellent shoes, all these people that say these are no good they just don't know how to bowl, if you buy these shoes you won't regret it.......=]
Just a casual beginning bowler and got tired of always renting shoes so decided to buy my own. I purchased a 8 1/2 since that's the size I usually get for casual shoes, but it ended up being about half an inch or an inch bigger than I needed.
I haven't use it yet, but it feels confortable and looks good.
Bowl at least 3 times per week and the better quality footwear has helped to improve my game by at least 20 pins. They are so comfortable to wear.
The left shoe fits me perfectly but the right shoe for some reason is tight on my foot and I can't even play with it. On the right shoes interior there's a peace of material that's made poorly and it scratches my foot a little. Other than that the shoes look nice.
Shoes fit great and arrived just in time for the Las Vegas Youth Nationals.
Shoes are too tight. I have worn size 12 for decades. This is the first time that a size 12 has not fit.
Other than the laces being too long - a very comfortable shoe with a nice slide
Awsome shoes. I wear a size 10.5 i bought the dexters in a size 11 fit perfect. I bowl anywhere from 2 to 4 times a week with one night being a league night. No complaints yet. They seem to be holding up pretty good. The cloth in the shoe wore a little bit but its nothing to complain about you can jus take it out and its the same as they came. Very stylish to. My thoughts best shoe for the price you get a little of everything when you buy this shoe you'll love em. i would highly recommend this to anyone trying to find the perfect shoes for them.
THE DELIVERY TIME WAS OUTSTANDIIING
AND THE SHOES FIT VERY WELL .
DELIVERY SERVICE WAS FINE. REPLACED MY WORN OUT DEXTER'S.THE PRICE WAS GREAT.
I have been using this model of shoe for contra dancing for about 10 years.
The sole is great for controlled spins and twirls.
The non-marking sole is important to protect our wood dance floors.
They are quite stylish when combined with tie-dye shoe laces.
Love these shoes.
I got my shoes and my bag the same day that was great
I Love my shoes!! I had a little problem at first getting used to the padded sole, but, it's probably just the way I bowl. LOL
