The shoes are fine for construction and comfort, and if you're just looking to save money and have a better fit vs house rentals, they're definitely a good option. However, the sliding soles on BOTH FEET are NOT conducive to getting a good push-off going into your slide. I picked up a pair of these locally to tide me over while I wait for my SSTs to come in from bowlingball.com. My old shoes had deteriorated to the point of being dangerous to use, and I had to do something. So I got an inexpensive pair from a brand I trust, and didn't really think to look at the push-off sole. If I had noticed there wasn't one, I probably would have bought something else. On the bright side, after about 8 games they seemed to start grabbing a *little* better. I'll keep them around the house (not in my locker) as a spare pair to take when we want to go somewhere besides my home lanes for some "fun" bowling. I would not want to use them for any serious competition, but I do understand they're not really intended for that. The SSTs should be here next week and I'll have happy feet again... :-)
