shoes are the most ignored and overlooked piece of bowling
equipment. Many bowlers just dont realize the importance
of a good quality and comfortably fitting bowling shoe.
shoes are made with a sliding sole that allows
bowlers to slide with their sliding foot during the last step
of their approach. This sole is generally made of leather
or of a
synthetic-type leather. A proper and consistent slide is very
important in the execution of a good bowling shot.

sole on both shoes. This type of shoe is an excellent
choice for beginners or for bowlers who bowl once a week or
style shoe has a sliding sole on one of the shoes
for the sliding foot only. The other shoe for the push
off foot has rubber on it to assist the bowler in a
strong and stable push off into the slide. Since
the slide sole is placed on only one of the shoes in a
style pair of bowling shoes, these shoes are labeled as right-handed
(slide sole will be on the left shoe) or left-handed (slide
sole will be on the right shoe). This type of shoe is recommended
for bowlers that want to improve their game and for bowlers
who bowl more than once a week.

SST6. (see pictures)
