When I first put them on I wasn’’t sure if I liked them. They seemed a little too puffy looking around where the crown is but I gave them a chance. They actually arrived two hours before I was to bowl in a league that night so I gave them a try. I LOVE THEM They were so comfortable and flat I know that sounds strange but my old bowling shoes that look like tennis shoes were too rubbery on the soles and my feet never felt stable. I am sold on these shoes So now I have the best of both they are comfortable and very cute AND I bowled great that night My Husband said it must have been the shoes because I am not a great bowler.
