Apart from a bowling ball, a really good set of bowling shoes is the second crucial piece of equipment the bowler really should have. Bowling shoes are usually available at most bowling centers for rent. Rental shoes usually do not fit to well and have been worn by many other people. Getting your own pair of bowling shoes when taking up bowling is recommended. In addition, purchasing new bowling shoes can be done, online, from a local pro-shop or bowling center. One thing one should know is not all bowling shoes are created equal. In addition, when it comes to bowling shoes you get what you pay for. If you buy cheap you get cheap.
Different Types of Bowling Shoes.
There are a couple different types of bowling shoes. Some look like tennis shoes these are usually the least expensive. Others look like dress shoes, and made out of vinyl or leather. Some bowling shoes have a flatter bottom and others have a raised heel. The bowling shoe called a Blucher is wider at the toe area and good if you have a wide foot. The more expense shoes will have interchangeable heels and soles to help you get the slide combination you are looking for.
