Dexter Powerstep
« on: September 29, 2015, 02:05:33 AM »
My one year-old Dexter SST-8s are coming apart because I drag my toe on my non-sliding shoe.  I was recommended the Dexter Powerstep as a solution.

But the only two sizes available are medium and large, with the medium being for sizes 9-13, and I wear size 7 2W.

Does anyone know if the medium would possibly work on the smaller size shoe?

For now I am going to try to substitute the T5 sole for the T3 one I had been using.  But if I wear that out too, it would be cheaper to buy the Powerstep, that is, if it lasts longer than the sole does.

After being a faithful SST user for many years, this year I tried the Brunswick TPU's but have the same issue. Does anyone know if the Powerstep will fit it?

The catch is from fesh rubber. After a solid practice session, you'll be fine and the rubber will dull some on the tip. It takes some getting used to, but I'd rather spend 30 bucks on a toe piece than 160 on shoes.

Probably, but I would rather stick to what I have.  Since the T 5 works OK and it is available for 17 bucks online, plus they are sending me a new T 2, I would rather just do that instead of trying to get used to the Powerstep.

Also, I still have all my old soles from my old shoes, they may also fit the new ones.

But next time I buy shoes, I will get something that doesn't have this problem.

My old shoes were SST 5s and since they did not have the inter-changeable soles on the non-slide foot, it was not a problem.  The shoe had a worn spot that looked bad, but it did not affect my bowling, and they were close to 15 years old.

The problem with the SST 8s is the removeable sole on the right foot, which is not necessary.  They say this is a selling point, but how many people bowl both left and right-handed?  Very few.
