If you've never shopped for bowling shoes, you must not know what to do and where to begin the shopping. But if you're serious about improving your bowling and want to bowl regularly, then you need a pair of good bowling shoes.
But before you go shoe shopping, ask yourself the following two questions:
1. Should you rent a pair or buy one?
For once a weekend bowling or bowling for fun, you can rent a pair of bowling shoes and you'd be good. But if you are going to bowl every weekend and are asking around for bowling tips to make your game better, or you have specific tastes like blue bowling shoes with black stripes or chic looking high heeled bowling shoes, then you should purchase a pair.
2. What kind do you want - performance based or athletic type?
Athletic shoes look good and are tailor made for bowling with a sliding sole on both shoes. Beginner bowlers find these perfect. A performance pair is a bowling shoe pair that has all the bells and whistles ideal for serious bowlers. You have each shoe performing a different purpose like braking and sliding.
