    Question Shoe suggestions for a friend?

    My buddy wants to buy a new pair of shoes, however he does not want to spend a lot of money to buy a really good pair, nor does he want one with interchangeable soles.

    What he DOES want is a shoe with as much "slidability" as possible, any suggestions? I myself just bought a new pair but they have interchangeable soles, so I haven't got the slightest idea of what to recommend.

    I would get a pair of (Non-interchangable) shoes that have a slide sole & grip sole and also get a bowlers slide sock.
    The sock would give you the option to adjust your slide slightly.

    other options

    1. Get a bowlers slide sock and use it on the old shoes.

    2. Get a bowlers slide sock and the stick on Nylon slide pad and apply it to the slide sock.

    Right handed Stroker, high track ,about 13 degree axis tilt. PAP is located 5 9/16” over 1 3/4” up.Speed ave. about 14 mph at the pins. Medium rev’s.High Game 300, High series 798
