A whole lot of us use Linds, in VAST preference to Dexters, whose crap seems to fall apart by looking at it sideways

I complain to Lind's all the time about their shoes being made in China.  We sell a fairly large amount of the lower end Linds as well as Etonic and very few Dexters.    The higher end shoes we sell are mostly Etonic and 900 Global.  Linds seems to have not kept up with the higher end bowlers and their needs.  Technology has passed them.  They seem to have gone to the shoe for the more masses which fits the China production.  With the national average for men bowlers somewhere around 180 why concentrate on the very small part of the market.  The other thing would be how much it would cost to pay the PBA to use the shoes on TV.  How many people actually watch the show and notice that Linds shoes are being used.  If there is not a good return for the money then why throw it away.  I know when we were looking at being used on the PBA the cost was out of sight.  You have to sell a great amount of product to recover the cost.

for those that mentioned a problem shuffling feet... the former Dynothane company made a shoe called the shuffler with a traction sole that was not so tacky that you could still shuffle your feet.

900 global still offers "the shuffler" in their 3G line of shoes.

Concerning being able to shuffle your feet. I tried on a pair of the shufflers and I am not convinced you can shuffle your feet as easy as you can with Linds. A friend just bought a pair of semi customs from Linds 2 years ago. There are issues with the back of them. When they were showed to the Linds rep they said they would probaly not do any thing about it. So when my semi customs wear out I will see what is out there. Russ
