The Dexter Mens SST 8 Pro bowling shoe takes a classic look and pairs it with modern technology. This shoe features Dexter's total interchangeable sole construction which makes this shoe convertible for left hand or right hand bowlers and allows the bowler to customize their slide surface as well as their traction surface. This shoe is where comfort and performance and now retro styling come together to make one great shoe!
This shoe design does not match up well with bowlers who have "serious toe drag"
When I got the shoes, I ordered it a half-size down from my normal shoe size and it fit absolutely perfect. The minute I stepped on the lanes, the shoes felt very comfortable on the lanes. For me, the sole was a little slick, but the more I broke them in, I started to get my tempo figured out and started hitting the pocket more.
These shoes are new from Dexter. They replace the SST8 after receiving them I noticed that they were very similar to the tank model, except that both shoes have interchangeable soles.Compared to the original SST8 they are a lot smaller on the over all with of the bottom of the shoe at least ½". Although it does not affect the with of the fit inside the shoe. They still run ½ size smaller than my street shoes. The new toe cap is a very good improvement. All the same normal slides and traction soles are the same althoe narrower . A large difference was the no longer supply additional slides, or heals or shoe cover. If you add all that up they would cost more than the older SST8. The construction looks to be very solid. You will love them.
I have never bowled in anything but Dexter. And never will probably. This is my fourth pair in almost 20 years. I was always happy with SST and these are even better than the ones I had before. Very comfortable, high quality, and look cooler than previous models. My usual size is closer to 10, but 9 1/2 from SST line fit perfectly.At the first glance I was alarmed seeing the sliding soles/heels on the left shoe (I am left-handed) but they are symmetric and can be switched over easily.Too bad Dexter does not supply additional soles/heels, covers and bags with these, but I still have the sets from SST 6 and 7. They are wider but can be cut to size, which I intend to do.All in all, these are perfect. And thank you, bowling.com, your prices are unbeatable.
