I'm a league bowler normally 4 nights a week. I have a pair of Lind Shoes that I bought in 1979. They are still in perfect condition. I polish them once a month and they look like new.
I would advise every one to size down at least a 1/2 Size. They run a bit big.
The shoes are comfortable but a little bit heavy. I ordered the 8 1/2 wide first and exchanged them for the 8 wide. They are pretty true to size.
These are good for me because they come in E width. I did have to exchange them for a half size smaller. I am also happy that they are leather, not man made junk. I am a league bowler.
Does this style run similar to casual footwear, or should I size up 1/2 or 1 size similar to running shoes? I am a true D/E width. Thanks!
We are told these shoes should run true to size, but because that could be different from person to person we recommend purchasing the True Fit Guarantee. You can also read the reviews for this shoe and see what other users think about the sizing.
Is the sole smooth?
Do these shoes come in women 10 wide? What is tru ? How much for exchange of to big or small? Does it have an arch or is it more flat foot?
They do come in size 10, but they are currently on backorder until February of 2017. Bowling shoes tend to be more flat foot oriented. Here is a link to our return/exchange policy - https://www.bowling.com/service/returns/
What does the bottom of the non-slide shoe look like? Has it changed over the years?
Do these come in wide width,6E
Do these shoes run big
According to customer reviews, this shoe will be true to size. If you are not 100% sure on the size to purchase, you can add the True Fit Guarantee with the shoes.
I have problems with high arches. What is the arch like in these shoes?
does these come in width c or medium
Do women bowling shoes come wider then E
What is platimum protection
The platinum protection is if during the first year of having your shoes, we will cover anything that the manufacturer wouldn't normally cover for you.
Do they come left handed
What if size is right but shoes aren’t wide enough? Will you refund if no exchange is possible (with trufit)?
Does the buckskin pick up dirt like microfiber does?
What does it mean "true fit guarantee"?
We offer a True Fit Guarantee option which will help to make exchanging this shoe for another size of the same shoe much easier, quicker, and cheaper. To see all of the benefits of the True Fit you can click the "?" beside the True Fit offer to see a pop up of all the policies and benefits.
would Tru Fit cover it if I had to exchange women’s wide for men’s wide of same shoe?
Technically the True Fit would only cover exchanging the same shoe model for a larger or smaller size. So changing from the women wide width to a men wide width would be changing shoes and not be covered but if you needed to do this we may could help on the exchange if you have the True Fit so that you did not have all of the exchange fees that are normal for exchanges.
Does Linds make a hello kitty shoe
They do not have a Hello Kitty design at this time. Here is a link to see the only Linds Women shoes we carry: https://www.bowling.com/shopping/all/bowling-shoes/all?brand=8&gender=64
Weigh how much does the shoe weigh
The weight of the shoe can vary depending on the size you get. The shoe is made of leather so it will be heavier than some of the canvas, cotton, or mesh upper shoes. I am sorry we do not have an exact weight.
If I wear a woman’s 8 in wide width what size would I wear in a men’s wide ee
It is hard to say exactly. A mens standard width shoe is a D width so it depends on what width your womens wide width is. In Linds, the mens wide width is EEE width so it is extra wide compared to most of the other mens wide width that we carry which is EE width. Also you have to adjust for the sizing which is between 1.5 - 2 sizes different. If you wear an 8 women then that would be like a 6 or 6.5 in men.
Can you get these in black for women
I don't see Linds Extra, are they still available?
Linds shoe line has discontinued the Exxtra model. Here is a link to view the current Linds shoe line that we carry: https://www.bowling.com/shopping/all/bowling-shoes/all?brand=8
Do they come in any other colors
I am a right hand bowler/want to make sure this the right shoe ( pair)
Yes, this shoe is marked right handed in the name of the shoe so it will work for a right handed bowler. The slide sole is on the left shoe.
Do you have the issues for a lefty?
Unfortunately we do not have the women classic in a left handed model. If you were wanting a womens left hand wide width then you may try this mens model and adjust 1.5 to 2 sizes for the difference in a mens and womens shoe size: https://www.bowling.com/products/linds-mens-classic-black-left-hand.htm
