I bought a pair of cheap bowling shoes a few months ago and I am not satisfied with them.

Do bowling shoes make a difference in your Game?

I am considering new shoes, what soes should I get?

If your doggs are howling you can't keep your mind on the game. I bought a pair of dexter sst6 because it was hard to find a pair of 13E. Try something in that line, I sure that you will find something that you would like in the sst series.

I bought some Dexter sst7 and my game has improved. They fit very nice and give you a nice feel on the lanes especially with the interchangeable heels and sliding pads. Can get them on-line for around $119 or so.

I am looking at the SST line and would like to order them online but I am worried about the size. If I get it wrong and have to return them I will blow all the money I saved on shipping charges. Any suggestions? Do they run big, small or typically the same size as regular sneakers?

I bought some SST6 from Dexter, and to me they seem slightly bigger in size. Don't get me wrong they fit great, it seems that there is ample room, but not a sloppy fit. I love them, they are nice and light too. laugh

go to the store and try on some Dexter shoes. They run about the same size as their regular shoes. I have some SST-1's now and want some 6's or 7's.
