If The Bowling Shoes Fit, You're Definitely In For A Great Game!

May 23, 2008
The article talks about one of the basic ingredients in making it big as a bowler. Here are some tips that can help you improve your performance without having to sacrifice your passion for the game.

In every sport you engage yourself in; remember that having luck and the talent are not enough to make you stand out. Many people are gifted with the ability; however, often fail in their chosen field due to lack of knowledge of the basic principles and information that goes with playing the game. In bowling, for instance, an amateur could easily say they could make a strike or set a new record. Shortly thereafter reality sinks in. Because it is more than just throwing a ball and hitting those perfectly aligned pins at the end of the stretch.

Aside from investing your time in honing your skills, one must look into the details of the entire sport. In as much as interest is important, possessing the right gear is likewise significant. Among others, you must have a pair of bowling shoes that fit you just right in order for you to take pleasure in the game.

But how would you know that what you've got now are the ones suited for you? Here's a simple way to find out: measure the length and width of both feet then subtract 2/10 of an inch from both dimensions. The numbers will help you find that ideal pair. Take note that comfort is the number one consideration. You wouldn't want your shoes reaching the pins first even before the ball does. So look for a pair that is not too tight or too loose. Doing this will prevent you from loosing your balance and eventually affect the way you bowl.

Now that you have found your size, it is time to decide whether you're bowling simply for fun or you intend to be a pro at it. If you choose to enjoy the game for the love of it, then the athletic ones are simply your style. The shoe has sliding pads on both soles and is used equally by right-handed and left-handed bowlers. On the other hand, purchasing the performance-bowling shoes will deliver a more intense level of execution because of the difference in function of the shoes. One is for sliding while the other for braking. This feature allows for an easier slide and grip when playing. Moreover, these are crafted uniquely for right-handed and left-handed bowlers.

But not all bowling shoes are made the same --- support, fit, style. Not because you're a size 5 in one brand doesn't mean you'll fit in the same size on a different shoe brand. Trying a pair on would be the best way to check if it's really meant for you. If you find brand new ones heavy on the pocket, you could make a great deal saving by purchasing used bowling shoes. Just remember to check the quality of the one you're getting. They may be cheaper, however, may not last long enough.

As you embark on the sport, all choices are up to you. Whatever the purpose, finding the perfect shoe should be as easy as 1-2-3. Of course, don't forget to tidy up those things for they sure can make or break your game!
