Is it more cost effective to buy my own bowling shoes?


I go bowling occasionally and I don’t like rental shoes because they never fit right and are gross. Is it more cost effective to buy my own? Any advise where to get them?

  1. Most definitely. But you’re right, comfort and sanitary conditions are important when you are wearing bowling shoes.if you happen to go bowling once a month or once every week, you do get the most out of your bowling shoes mainly because you’re not wearing them almost everyday in comparison to your daily footwear. In addition it pays for itself depending how often you go to play.best recommendation would be a local pro shop or a recognized bowling website; such as bowlingball.com, ontheball.com, bowling.com
