BF Bowling Shoes?
« on: July 05, 2004, 04:04:23 AM »
Has anyone ever tried these or even heard of them? They are a Korean based company and were at BowlExpo, I  was just wondering if they were a new company, or if they were just an overseas brand that never made it over the the US yet??  www.bf.co.kr/

I saw them at the BowlExpo.  Don't know that much about them but we are going to take a look and see what they have.  We already order Dexter clones from Dreamroad and have had fairly good success.  There are many options for shoes this year.

BowlersParadise.com sells BF World shoes on their site. They look nice but it looks as if they lack interchangeable soles.

I have a pair for about one year. Although I have Linds/Dexters and NXT's I prefer the BF's. When I first got them I was concerned because I take a 7 WIDE and the company did not make WIDE. I found the 7 regular was VERY COMFORTABLE.

I used them exclusively last summer/Winter and till now in the Summer 2004. Bowling 4 leagues/5 leagues and 2 leagues. The SLIDE shoe is fantastic. While I had problems with most other shoes STICKING I have yet to have that problem with the BF's.

Just this past week I found a small crack on the sole of the slide foot. It is about 3/4 of an inch long and right in the center of the sole. I noticed it before I started and continued to use them that night with no adverse reaction.

I am totally satisfied with the bowling shoes and would recommend them to anyone.

ON EDIT: The name of the shoe model I have is FALCO
