KR Strikeforce has created the Flyer line of bowling shoes to be a basic yet comfortable shoe with universal slide soles.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Bowling twice weekly.
I haven't been bowling with them yet. I just got them today.
Price, Great Entery Level, Great Back-up Shoe
Seperated, Sliders on both feet
Starter Shoe/Spare Shoe
I've owned about 4-5 pairs of these shoes from various brand names. My guess is another factory makes these shoes and various name brands pay to just have their logo on the shoe. No matter the brand name on the shoe, its always performed the same. For the money, its a great entry level shoe that gets you away from rentals shoes. They are moderately comfortable, being a stiff shoe that never really breaks in. Even with that issue the shoe never slips off my foot, or causes any discomfort. So I guess a stiff shoe isn't a deal breaker. The slide action of these out of the box is lacking, but after the 1st game these shoes eventually learned how to glide without much issue. The heel break does it's job, I've never had issues with stopping/sticking to the floor after the 1st game break-in period with the heel break. Over all I'm okay with these shoes for the price and would recommend these. If I had to nit pick, or offer my opinion on improvements to this shoe, I'd say offer Right/Left hand options and maybe improve the flexibility of the shoe slightly.

Is this made in China? Are these standard US sizes?
Yes, that is correct! And yes, these are standard US sizes.
How do I buy this shoe in WIDE "D" WIDTH? I bought and returned a pair on Amazon that were too tight! Amazon comments section said this shoe IS AVAILABLE in WIDE size, but no way to specify WIDE when ordering!!
These will be a D width. The wide width version is an EE width. If you need a wide width version, it will say wide width in the title of the shoes.
They come as a pair of shoes?
Yes, this will be for a pair of bowling shoes (one left foot, one right foot)
Do they run true to size or should I buy bigger
We recommend ordering your normal shoe size as a good point of reference.
Are they true to size
It is hard to say how this shoe will fit compared to your other shoes. We would suggest that if you have never had a KR Strikeforce shoe before than you get the True Fit Guarantee option in case you needed to switch the shoes up or down in size.
Due to the time it takes to produce the KR Strikeforce Mens Flyer Black/Mag Blue ball it will ship in immediately. We cannot ship this ball outside the United States.
