This is a very nice shoe. I just received the shoes yesterday and I wore them last night for league bowling (3 games). So, these are my first impressions. But, I doubt my opinion will change very much, over time. The shoe is very well constructed. Excellent materials and it seems to be very sturdy and it seems as if I will get many years use from them. Since I could not find a woman’s shoe with interchangeable soles and heels, in a light color, for a decent price (a decent price for someone who bowls 2 leagues a week, no tournaments, basically a leisure bowler), I had to go with a black shoe. But, for a black shoe it is very attractive. The gold offsets the black very well. I went with a shoe ½ size larger than I normally wear, but I didn’t need to. The toe box is wide and roomy with enough length, appropriate for the shoe size, that going up in size was unnecessary. The shoe is rather stiff, at first. But, by the end of the evening I didn’t notice the stiffness. Unfortunately, for such a nice, well made shoe, there are some important downfalls. The shoe has absolutely no padding, just some soft material covering the sole. It has no arch support – at all. There is no way I would describe it as “well fitting and comfortable”. My feet were very sore by the end of the evening, especially the ball of the left foot, as I am a right-handed bowler and I slide. The slide pad that came with it, T-8, did not slide very well, I got a very short slide from it. I had to purchase a T-10 from the pro shop during warm-up, just to be able to get a decent slide. Overall, this is a nice shoe, just very disappointing in the comfort level.
