Comfortable, Lightweight, My shoe size is 13 EEEE These fit perfect LUV EM, Stylish
Have'nt used yet.Tell ya later, Uncomfortable
Bought as Christmas present so I can't review Performance of shoe..I'm just thrilled that I finally found a shoe that fits my EEEE wide feet . I attribute this to the lacing that goes down to the toes. Just lace them looser and "PERFECTO" I don't forsee any problems on the lanes ..This is a quality made shoe and I'm sure it will perform great.

Size is true. Very comfortable.
The shoes fit perfect! The amount of slide area under my new left shoe is about 4 times greater than my old shoes. On the heel area is a little extra room causing my heel to slide into them very easy without being loose. I am very impressed with the quality, fit, and comfort of these shoes. I am very happy I bought them and would buy them again!
His comment was great comfort. He loves Linds shoes and the best part is not having to break them in.

My husband loves these shoes, this is about his 3rd pair
Very comfortable shoes. I needed EEE width and these shoes have the width I was looking for. I like the classic styling and the out of the box quality. I have only worn them twice so far, but the early reviews are good.

League play, Open bowling, Tournament Play
I have been bowling for 45+ years. When I was in my early 20's a friend of mine (who worked at a bowling supply store) recommended that I try a pair of Linds. I'm glad I listened to him as I had those shoes for 25 years. My average actually went up several pins over the next couple of months after my purchase. There were years when I would only bowl in one league but there were times when I would bowl in four leagues/week. This year the soles started looking quite wretched as the toe pad on my right shoe had come off and the sole on my sliding shoe was coming apart. I am now 49 and had to break down and buy my second pair of Linds. If these last as long as my first pair I could take these to the grave with me.
GREAT FOR BOWLERS THAT HAVE FOOT PROBLEMS. THE ONYY SHOE THAT IS WIDE FOR FOR BOWLING.
Returned original ordered pair for a smaller size. These have been on an extended time of back order. Customer service has been in regular contact which is good. The fault is obviously with the manufacturer (Linds) and NOT Bowling.com.
Poor Braking Control, Slippery, Uncomfortable
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Unfortunately, Linds does not offer this shoe in wide for left handed bowlers.

Hello Matt. If the slide is not working out you can always purchase an add on slide cover for more slide. If you click on the link that follows, it will direct you to the slide. https://www.bowling.com/products/ebonite-shoe-slider.htm

There are half sizes from 8-12. Over 12 they only do whole sizes.
Buckskin slide sole...How does that compare to the Dexter S8 sole?
Most of the feedback we have heard would be that the Buckskin sole is just a little less slide than the S8 sole. The leather soles however are made to last a very long time and in some cases as you break them in you can start to get more slide out of the buckskin soles.
can I get these in white?
We do offer the Linds Mens Classic White Right Hand but not in wide width.
Is it totally USA made? Also available in size 8.5D.
This shoe is not made in the USA. It is made with US leather but this is made in China. Here is a link to the regular D width option: https://www.bowling.com/products/linds-mens-classic-black-right-hand.htm

The Linds Mens Classic Black Right Hand Wide Width are EEE.
