Custom made Dexter soles.
« on: August 12, 2003, 08:28:50 AM »
There is a guy who makes custom soles for Dexters. I know SST 6 for sure. I'm pretty sure he said he can make them for 5's as well.

Company name: SZPS
some pro shop in MI.


I would give these a 10 out of 10.

They are far more durable than Dexters soles. I know, I know, some of you have had your for years. yada,yada,yada. there are enough people who wear them out faster like me.

they also offer finer adjustments in slide or no slide as you prefer. everyone who has stuck with an 8 sole and changed to a 10 know there is a big difference.

Basically the soles from 0 and up have the same materials and construction. just the material that slides has an increase in surface area. he just increases surface area to slide more.

I have a -1 heel and it has a different material base for non-sliding. I assume his approach is the same. so Planters would love the negative number heels.

I only have soles from 4 - 9. and heels -1,0,1,2,3,5. most lanes I use 3 or 5 heel and 6 or 8 sole. I like to slide.

I used to use Dexters red heel and rubber horseshoe and soles 6 and 8.

The custom soles, for me, have what appears a  3 to 1 life span over the Dexters I had. I will let you know in a couple of years how it's going.

so initially there expensive but My knees are worth it. I think $25 each but he offers a package deal for 3 soles and 3 heel for around 100 plus shipping.

if your unhappy with your dexter soles these are a must. Now all I need to do is get the Dexter Kangaroo leather And my feet will be happy.
