The Flyer by KR Strikeforce is a basic universal soled shoe (meaning it has slide soles on both the right and left shoes). It is simple yet stylish and is made with a soft durable man-made upper so it is comfortable.
I owned a pair of the standard black Flyers (not mesh) for a few years before the heel started to pull off, which was perfectly fine with what I'd expect from a $40 shoe I was bowling in 4 days a week for 3 years. I bought a more expensive traditional style bowling shoe to replace those and hated them - slid waaay too much. After 2 weeks I bought these these Flyers again in mesh and love them. The soft rubber midfoot/heel makes it possible for me to control my slide and actually stop when I want to. The other reviews about the rubber near the toe are correct, though, these were manufactured just slightly off so that the slide ends just short of the end of the toe - and you could catch your toe and stick if you don't shave that tiny bit of rubber off. Took me about 15 seconds per shoe with a pocket knife - and scuffed the slides a bit with a shoe brush = all good. Should you have to do this to brand new shoes? No, but for $40 and minimal effort I am crushing pins again. Will buy a back-up pair for when these wear out in a couple years. I don't recall the non-mesh Flyers having that lip issue, so could go that route for same price instead. True size? out of the box felt just slightly tight in the toe, but feel good now broken in.
These shoes have a small rubber lip at the toe and will not slide. I almost flew down the lane. Do not buy
Shoes do not slide at all! Bought them for my husband for his birthday and he wore them on Sunday. He almost fell a few times as the shoes just made him stop short. Since you can't return shoes that have been worn he cut off some of the rubber at the end of the shoe so the felt is close to end of shoe. Hopefully this will help. Will find out on Sunday. Really ruined his games since he could not slide and had to make many concessions. Extremely disappointed in these shoes. Shoes also run a little tight but since I did not purchase the Sure Fit option was not worth sending them back- shipping plus $5 fee to exchange would have been way to high.
Is the shoe size comparable to regular shoes?
I need something that does not slide much at all is this someting that would be good for me? If not what would be
