Pros:

Stylish, Durable, Adjustable

Cons:

Does not come with extra soles and heels

Best Uses:

Multiple uses

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great quality

These are by far, the best shoes I've ever owned. Dexter truly are masters of their craft. These shoes look stunning under the lights the hot melt color shift really pops. Sizing is accurate just order your normal shoe size. The BOA system incorporated into these shoes are incredible. Easily adjustable to tighten or loosen the shoes. Dexter has also made a chart for different heel and sole combinations too. I do wish however, that Dexter included some extra heels and soles for the high price you pay for these shoes. You'll have to purchase them separately. Just know these shoes are an investment. Outside of price, these are excellent shoes for any bowler looking for an upgrade into the higher end shoe market.

Pros:

BOA (hope it lasts), Comfort, Style

Cons:

Aggressive Braking

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Super Comfortable and sweet looking pair of shoes.

Very comfortable shoe. I was a bit leery about the BOA system but it actually is really awesome. I just am not sure at this time if it will last. The wire they use is super thin, but I guess that helps to keep the mechanisms functioning smooth as easy. As another user commented, the heel on the slide shoe is a tad aggressive for me. I will be putting on a "7" from my old shoe to produce the longer slide I am accustomed too. They are sharp looking and the color shifting is very apparent with the lighting in my bowling alley . Some others have stated that this effect was a bit lacking but not for me. I hope to have these as long as I had my old Dexters. I am a 10 in regular shoes but always get 9.5 in my Dexters if that helps anyone. Nice work on a cool and comfortable pair of shoes

Pros:

Fit and comfort was great!!!

Cons:

The slide shoe heel attachment

Best Uses:

None

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The juries still out!

My only complaint was the slide shoe heel attachment brakes to hard for me and throws my rhythm off. Other than that this is another solid shoe made by Dexter and it looks like I won't be buying another pair of shoes again for the next 10-15 years. ??????

Pros:

Beautiful, boa system

Cons:

Sizing

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Horrible sizing

So I currently have the woman's Dexter Kerrie shoes and wear a 7.5 and I ordered these in the woman's size 7.5 and they are ONE FULL SIZE TOO BIG!!!! luckily I got the fit insurance thing and will be exchanging them. I said I would recommend because the quality of the shoe is unmatched but I have not been able to try them so once I get the correct size and use them I will update my review.

Question:

shoes size 7.5 is this shoe a true fit?

7/9/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The shoe size question is one that we often get but unfortunately it is not one that we can give a definite answer on. We do have some reviews where customers say this shoe runs big and we have heard from some bowlers that it runs small compared to their other shoes. For the large majority of people that get this shoe they stick with the first size and so we do not advertise that it runs small or large because we do not have enough feedback one way to determine if it is large or small. I would suggest to get your normal shoe size and also consider the True Fit Guarantee which would cover your exchange expenses to get the next size up or down on this if the first size did not fit. I am sorry I could not give a more definitive answer on this.

Question:

I’ll purchase the decker 9s with the wire shoestring I know how to train him but I’m not sure how to loosen them up I think I’m doing something wrong could you tell me how to loose the wire

9/6/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

To loosen the BOA system lift up on the turn dial. This should release the line so that you can flex your foot and remove it from the shoe. Then press the turn dial back in to start tightening it again.
