He we have “The Strike” Bowling shoes by Mod Shoes
When we very First started Mod Shoes we were asked for “Chisel Toe” bowling shoes, like the ones from the 80s, the type that “Shelleys” used to sell. It has taken this long to find a good supplier, and also get as close as possible to the shape. This style of design is only available from Mod Shoes
Notice that the front is much slimmer and less rounded than other bowling shoes on the market. And copied from an original pair from the 80’s.
Also we wanted to do a good bowling shoe, so the leather upper is super soft, and supple. Literally no wearing in ! The sole has an extra grip piece added at the front. So if you are wearing these out and about, you aren’t going to slip over (But if you do, you can’t sue Mod Shoes)!
Stick with size, unless you are super wide fitting. The design means they are more suitable to normal width, but a sizer bigger doesn’t look big. We have had some back for being too big, please note that the leather is super soft, so if in between sizes, go down, not up. I am wideish 8.5 in my right foot, and an 8 was very good for me.
Sole : Man Made
Sizes 40(6) – 46(12)
We also do a ladies version in some colours
We use the following size conversions. Please be aware that different designs are designed to be bigger than others. We try our best on the product page to mention sizing.
Please Note that are shoes are made mainly in Spain & Portugal and Euro to UK Conversion means that the shoes normally come up a little big. The reason is that a 43, is more like 9 and 1/4.
