Learn to slide right in the latest bowling shoes. Picking up a few tricks to making a good bowling slide will help your scores. Knowing more about shoe models available on the market today can also help you improve your game.

The beginning of your approach will help you to slide right in the latest bowling shoes. Maintaining good body balance during your approach is critical in the bowling slide, particularly for new bowlers or those of you working at improving your game.

Here are a few tips to help you improve your bowling slide:

1. Make sure your steps are not too fast and out of control.

2. Set-up on the approach in an athletic posture and retain that posture as you walk to the foul line.

3. Maintain knee flex throughout your approach and through the slide step. Your flexed slide knee cap should be on a vertical plane with the toe of your bowling slide shoe.

4. Slide toward the center of your body to stabilize your upper body while releasing the bowling ball.

5. Position your upper body so your head and your shoulders do not extend in front of the vertical line from your slide knee cap and your sliding shoe toe.

6. As you complete your next to last step, your body weight should be completely transferred onto your sliding step leg. When your knees are flexed properly during your bowling approach as suggested in Tip #3, the big muscles of your leg in your thigh area work to help support the full weight of your body while you slide into the foul line.

7. Do not hurry the final two steps of your approach.

8. Make certain you have bowling shoes which help you avoid hydroplaning on the approach and promote a smooth and consistent slide to the foul line.

Developing good footwork and a sound sliding technique will help improve your game, but you need to have a pair of bowling shoes which provide stability, durability, a smooth sliding sole, and are comfortable so you can make consistent deliveries while in competition.
