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.

What shoe size does large equal
Thanks for the question! The large will be for the men's size 11-12 shoe.
I just bought THE 9 in women's size 8.5. Are the soles not gender specific? What size would I need?
Hello Sheen! For women's shoes, the size XXS = women’s 5-6.5. The size XS = women’s 7-8.5. This size S = women’s 9-10. The size M = women’s 11. So it looks like you would need a size XS.
the dexter 9s, is the higher the sole number the more slide?
Hi Grib. Yes, that is correct.
How to attatch
Individually packaged and sold ready to fit the specified sizes. They are attached by Velcroe and clip onto the shoe.
Is there a difference for a wide size shoe?
There is no difference.
if you need more slide,do you change out the heel also?
Yes, you will need to change the heel as well.
i bought and installed a dexter s10 slide sole, but it slides too much, what is the next one down (S8)???
The Slide S9 would be the next one down. If you click on the link that follows, it will direct you to the S9 slide sole. https://www.bowling.com/products/dexter-the-9-s9-slide-sole.htm
I changing S7 slide on Ladies dexter to S8...what heel do I need to get
If you have the Dexter THE 9 shoes then this THE 9 S8 pad will work for that shoe. You have to get THE 9 soles to work on the THE 9 shoes. But for the heels, the SST heels will be the ones you can get to replace the heels. There is not a special heel to get for THE 9 shoes. If you wanted more slide then you could go for the H7 heel to give you less brake and more slide.
the 9 bowling shoe sole s8. is extra wide shoe take the standard s8 sole?
The pads are designed to fit both regular and wide width models. You would just have to match the size shoe you wear with the size indicated on the chart for this and it should work with no problems.
I have new THE 9 shoes and I don't like the way the heel sticks to the lane. Is there another option for the heel? The front pad is (8) (6).
Yes, you may be interested in the H7 heel which is a leather heel instead of rubber. Here is a link to this: https://www.bowling.com/products/dexter-sst--leather-red-heel--h7-.htm
Is this slide for left handed or right handed bowler
On the Dexter THE 9 bowling shoes the soles are shaped the same for both the right and left foot. The pad is not curved. It is just put on the shoe at a slight angle so the pads work for either foot.
Need some slide soles for my dexter sst8.
This sole is specifically for the Dexter THE 9 shoes. If you wanted to get a sole for the SST 8 you may check here: https://www.bowling.com/shopping/all/bowling-accessories/shoe-accessories?maxprice=20&brand=7
Do you have teflon pads for sliding foot heel
The highest slide you can get for the heel would be the H7 leather heel here: https://www.bowling.com/products/dexter-sst--leather-red-heel--h7-.htm
Will these work with any dexter shoe that has the removable toe
Currently this sole will only work on Dexter shoes that are considered THE 9 or on SP3 Storm shoes.
Do these work on Storm shoes
This will only work on the Storm SP3 model shoe that has the toe clip. For all other Storm shoes you can use the Dexter SST soles. Also Dexter heels will work on all Storm shoes with removable heels.
Due to the time it takes to produce the Dexter THE 9 S8 Slide Sole ball it will ship in immediately. We cannot ship this ball outside the United States.
