Have the same advantages as the pros with the SST 8. Interchange both the sliding soles and the traction soles to give you the most precise slide to fit your game. Never worry about the approach again. Slide and switch until you get the perfect feel.
This shoe design does not match up well with bowlers who have "serious toe drag"
Bowl in several different houses and all approaches different. SST8 provides versatility I need. You are eventually going to get something on your sole, with the SST8 swap out soles and your back on the approach no problem. Very pleased with this shoe.
These shoes are small, uncomfortable, narrow, stiff, poor quality, and A DISAPPOINTMENT. I would not recommend these. The SST5 were the best shoes I ever bought. These do not compare.
When I put these shoes on for the first time I was dreading sticking or slipping when trying to get use to them. However, I never an an issue breaking them in. It was like they wwere already broke in.
Very happy with them
The shoe is good, but need long break in period. Need at least a game or two to break in the shoes. I believes they have good soles and heels, but you need to buy them. What they give you is the starter set up, if the lanes feel a little slippery, you can't go from a S8 to a S6, you will fall face first. same thing with the heels.
Once the shoes breaks it it feel good, stable and stylish.
The shoes is 1/2 size larger then other shoes, so watch out...
Great shoes bought cheaper shoes at start of league play and was getting a big calluse on my right big toe. These shoe have much more protection on my kick out foot and no more calluses. Great shoes worth the extra money!!!!
Good shoes! The finish wears very quickly if (I guess slightly touched, maybe bumped). That is after 3.5-4 months.
No complaints about durability. I will say they are very well made. Shoe slippers; I had a problem with. The elastic and body material was not sewn (or was missed) in the rear.
I personally like the shoes, the colors of the finish is complementary, but they need to do a better job on checking the sewing of shoe covers, and "MUST" get the dye to penetrate the leather rather than lying on the top surface.
