WE SUGGEST ADDING THE TRUE FIT GUARANTEE TO RENTAL SHOES SINCE EACH MANUFACTURER'S SIZING CAN BE DIFFERENT
Comfortable, true to size, durable, genuine leather, nice looking
A little stiff at first
Casual, Armature league
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
For "rental" shoes they are very good looking! And at $40 for all leather they are a steal. I purchased my first pair of these shoes back in 2012 from Bowling.com and they are still going strong (you'll have to replace the laces after a year or two). I'm only buying another pair now because I THINK my 17-year-old kid's feet have stopped growing and maybe it's time to stop using rentals on him. :)

Purchased 2 pair. One for myself that was just perfect (10.5) The others for my wife, little long. Her Foot is a 7, but wears 7.5 due to wide feet. The shoe runs a little wider than street shoes. I had gotten her a (7.5). Put a pair of insoles in and that helped. Both pair had a good + thumbs worth of room.

no push off sole
I have wanted to buy a pair built like these, because others I bought kept coming apart after 1 year. either the rubber toes wore down or the soles came unglued. since the alleys buy these because they're stitched from the uppers through to the soles, and they are made of leather, I figured they were my best bet for the money. no problem sliding right out of the box. since I was used to having a push off sole, I had to adjust these simply with a piece of duc tape on that sole. it worked. this was the only reason I didn't give them 5 stars. they are light weight, and comfortable.

Sizing May Run A Bit Big
Have had these shoes for about a year now and have no complaints. These are great, affordable shoes. Maybe not top-of-the-line, but very good shoes. Beats renting!! Sizing may run a bit too big. Width is good but length is a little long. I usually wear a size 10 so that's what I bought but probably could've gotten by with a 9 1/2.

No Cons Yet
Casual Family Bowling
I have been a standard size 11, forever it seems. Size 11 in these shoes were WAY short. Unbearably cramped my toes. I had to go to a size 11.5, which I have never had to or could comfortably wear in any other shoes I have tried. The Tru-Fit guarantee was definitely worth it. Bowling.com recommended the Tru-Fit guarantee for these shoes so they probably had some experience with Lind's sizing differences. Other than the sizing thing, I would recommend these shoes. At least for casual bowling.
Dont Try Velcro Version
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
if you want velcro LINDS try them on first somewhere before ordering online....cost me an additional $20 to return and reship...Bowling.com "sure fit" option exists because they know its necessary in many cases.. but in a legitimate exchange case they charge alot without the protection.. they claimed I had a sizing issue but I EXCHANGED FOR THE SAME SIZE IN LACES...not aware of the difference between laces vs Velcro BEWARE!!!
