One of the main features found in performance bowling shoes is interchangeable slide soles and brake heels. This feature allows you to replace just the soles or heels (the quickest part to wear out) and get more life out of your shoes. It also allows you to adjust how much you slide by offering varying levels of soles and heels.
Like any pair of shoes, your bowling shoes will see normal wear and tear throughout the year. Avid bowlers may go through multiple pairs of bowling shoes in a single season. With a little care, you can help your bowling shoes last longer and perform better.
