Hammer's first high performance women's bowling shoe is the Hammer Womens Vixen. This shoe is loaded with features that were designed to enhance performance as well as comfort. Try these out, you won't regret it!
Included on the slide shoe (interchangeable): Slide Sole #8 white microfiber slide pad and Heel #5 graduated rubber heel.
Included on push shoes (fixed): T02 rubber push off sole and #2 shark tooth heel
I would highly recommend this shoe. Great comfort and support. The shoe size is accurate, you do not have to buy a half size bigger or smaller than your shoe size.
After the first game I went to the desk to purchase a slip-on shoe slider because I could not slide at all and that was taking a toll on my knee. The shoe slider helped my slide a little, but the heel of the shoe stopped me on a dime, so I still can't get enough slide out of it. I guess they're OK if you have a very short slide or no slide at all. However, if you have a long slide like I do, you'll be spending more money to get a #10 slide sole and H-7 leather heel -- and crossing your fingers that does the trick. The other thing you may need to get used to is the width of the soles. I'm used to Lind's -- the original Lind's -- which are shaped more like a normal shoe with normal width soles. The Hammer Vixens (by KR Strikeforce) are noticeably wider and, for me at least, will take some getting used to. The only saving grace for these shoes is that they fit true to size. Bottom line for me: these shoes are a lot more work, break-in time, and money than they're worth. (Your mileage may vary.)
