Ever go bowling? It’s like the easiest sport to gather people, especially my friends. No one wants to lift weights with me, nor do they want to play tennis with me. (Jerks.)
But mention bowling and everyone’s ears perk up. You know why? Balls. Plus, draft beer and bad nachos.
After all these years of existence, I’ve never owned a pair of bowling shoes. Even The Wife has a pair of bowling shoes. And he gloats as he brings his pair into the bowling alley while I wait at the desk asking for a pair of Size 7s that hundreds of other people have worn. Sexy.
The team at Bowlingshoes.com contacted me and offered to send a pair of bowling shoes my way. MY OWN BOWLING SHOES. My answer? HELLS YES.
Ordering is easy. You hop around the site for shoes you’d like to see. Check out the Right-Hand bowling shoes – this is hardcore. I didn’t know they made shoes that favored one hand or the other! You can also dig around and find bowling gloves. Honestly, I should have asked them for a pair because I almost always break a nail or sprain a finger (slightly) while bowling.
Bowlingshoes.com also sells bowling balls and bowling accessories like these finger holes. Who knew?! Makes sense though – it’d give some relief to your fingers as you keep throwing the ball over and over.
The shoes that caught my eye were the neon colored ones, naturally. I was going to go with the neon yellow but as you scroll down, you’ll see they notate the shade – a little yellow, a little green. Nah. So I went with neon orange! My shoes are on sale for $39.99. I’ve just saved myself $5 shoe rental EVERY time I go bowling with friends!
They shipped via UPS but you can choose faster shipping if you have the dough. There is a fee if you’re returning the shoes for a different size. If you’re in-between sizes like me, you may want to go to a bowling alley store to try on different brands and be sure about your size! I’ve always been a Size 7 in rental bowling shoes, and that’s what I ordered – my shoes were true to size.
I can’t wait to try these this weekend. You bet I’m going bowling! (Check my Twitter and Instagram later if you want to see hilarity.)
Thanks to the Bowlingshoes.com team for sponsoring my bowling endeavors with a pair of bowling shoes!
I aim to get a turkey and beat everyone’s butts this weekend. (Kind of appropriate since it is November and Thanksgiving is around the corner, don’t ya think?)
