love them- fit like they did 30 years ago
The product has been around for a long time and wears well. They run large - a size larger than regular shoes. Be sure to purchase the Tru fit. Exchanges are easy. Well worth the money.

always the best...love them!
Bowl in 3 leagues and feel very comfortable and secure in Linds. Had the same pair over 30 years ago and loved them so bought a new pair. Great shoe.
By Marsha from Illinois
I have worn these shoes for years and even had the toe restructured since I apparently drag my toe and wear them out. I finally bought a new pair. I prefer these over any other bowling shoes. I have bought different brands, but never could wear them as they would not slide,etc. Linds are the best. The service was great, received shoes with in a few days. Will use bowling.com again in the future.
By Bowling Bell from Canton, Ohio
I have been bowling for 43 years and have averaged in the mid 220's for the last 10. In the past when I have purchased Linds I could use them right out of the box. With this new purchase I tried them on in practice and couldn't seem to slide on the heal. This was very disappointing as I don't practice and can't break them in during my league so they have been in the back of my car for about 4 weeks now. Anyone have a clue how to break these in better? They do slide but the heal sticks. Otherwise these are the only type of shoe I would own.
By Recreational Sport from Palacios, Texas
The shoes fit in length and toe, but too big in heel area. Because of restrictions for returning, I just past the shoes on to another player in league who wore same size and hope they work for that player.

It would take the rest of my lifetime and perhpas the next to break these shoes in!! I wasn't looking for them to last forever!!! Would definetly not recommend them.

Not made as well as they used to be
I've worn Linds for almost 40 years. I know they are stiff and heavy. The first pair I had lasted 27 years! (with new soles put on a few times by shoe repair guy). The next pair lasted 10 and I just ordered the exact same size as the ones I have and could not even get my foot in them. ( I sent them back and waiting for a credit). As with most things, they don't make them like they used to. I found the new pair to be of less quality than my previous pair(s) Not bowling.com fault. If you're a long time Lind user, it may be time to consider another brand. I will have to. In the meantime I spent some time sewing up my old pair where needed to get me through this season and will shop around this summer for a different brand. No issues however with bowling.com
