Dexter's THE 9 bowling shoes have a patented interchangeable sole design that requires specialized THE 9 Soles. THE 9 Soles feature HyperFlex Hinges to help align the sole to the shoe properly in the HyperFlex Channels. The Toehold Clip is comprised of an abrasion-resistant material that was created to resist toe drag damage. These soles are available in a variety of materials for different slide preferences.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
#8 does not allow enough slide, #10 is too much slide. Unfortunately, the protective toe prevents it from fitting my shoes.

I'm a left handed bowler and I purchased Dexter's the 9 bowling shoes. They came with the opposite soles I need. How can I order a sliding sole/ heel for my right foot and the other sole/ heel for my left foot?
Hi there! Dexter's THE 9 bowling shoes have interchangeable soles and heels that can be traded from the right shoe to the left shoe and vise versa. If the shoes you received were set up for a right handed bowler then all you have to do is remove the soles and heels and apply them to the opposite shoes. We do sell extra soles and heels but they are all the same and are not right hand or left hand specific.
Does this sole come attached to the clip for attaching to the toe?
The sole will have a clip attached to the front of it. The clip will go into the front toe of the Dexter THE 9 shoe to help hold the sole in place. This sole will only work for the shoes that have the Toehold Hyperflex Engineering.
How do I know what size to order, my shoe size is 10.
Hello! If you wear a size 10, you will want to purchase the size medium slide for your shoes.
is there big fifferances between the dexter the 9 slide soles like the number 12 and the number 10?
Yes, these will definitely give you more slide.
Is there a sole kit available? I dont want to order just random soles until i find one I like
Unfortunately Dexter only has them individually. You may can try the ones that come on the shoes and then try to judge from that on if you need more or less slide. Depending on how much you slide or stick you may can make a guess if you need a little change or a drastic change.
Will the slide pad for dexter the 9 bowling shoe fit the dexter the 8 shoe
If you have a Dexter SST 8 model then you would have to get an SST sole to fit that shoe. The Dexter THE 9 soles will only fit the Dexter THE 9 shoes ( it will also fit Storm SP3 models ).
Due to the time it takes to produce the Dexter THE 9 S10 Slide Sole ball it will ship in immediately. We cannot ship this ball outside the United States.
