Are bowling shoes worth it?
The soles of the shoes act much like the bowling lanes themselves: they are both made to be super slick. Wearing slick shoes helps you slide while you’re bowling. Bowling shoes can also help prevent injuries in bowlers because they allow for the proper bodily movement after a ball is rolled down a lane.
Why don’t you wear bowling shoes anymore?
YES YOU DO. Bowling shoes are needed for safety first and performance second. Your shoes need to be clean with a smooth sole to allow you and all the other bowlers to walk up toward the pins and swing your ball into the lane without sticking or tripping on anything. Street shoes won’t do this.
