Dexter THE 9 takes bowling shoes to a whole new level. THE stands for Toehold Hyperflex Engineering which increases the flexibility and durability of the shoe. THE 9 HT is the newest in the shoe series, with a list of high performance features. The knit construction provides breath ability and comfort.This shoe has a lot to offer, starting at the toe and going all the way to the heel.
Really nice pair of shoes, I replaced my hammer shoes with these and was very impressed. They felt broken in right off the bat due to them being knitted. I am will be buying another pair for my son.
How does this protect against toe drag compared to the sst 8 power frames?
The C9 soles have a toe clip which keeps the soles more securely attached to the shoe. The SST 8 does not have a toe clip on the soles so if the sole catches when you drag your toe it could peel back the sole and over time wear out the sole more quickly.
Are they returnable?
You are currently able to return or exchange these shoes while they are not a closeout item. Please see our return policies here, https://www.bowling.com/service/returns/.
Are they true to size.
It is hard to say how the shoe will fit compared to other shoes unfortunately. We would suggest going with your normal shoe size and you may want to get the True Fit option to help if you need to switch up or down in sizes after trying the first one on.
Are the shoes I ordered right hand?
This shoe can work for both right handed and left handed bowlers. The slide foot and traction foot both have interchangeable pads and you can put the slide on either foot and the traction on either foot make this work for anyone.
I have the C9 knit Boa right hand , can I get a different slide pad with the toe clip, I have the s7 pad nowe
We do sell extra soles separately but you would have to make sure you select the Dexter THE 9 soles to fit this shoe because on the Dexter THE 9 soles have the toe clip option.
