How to Make My Bowling Shoes Slide More

Powder, Steel Brush and Tight Laces

    New bowling shoes may feel stiff and sticky, so break them in by wearing them around the house. If your shoes aren't sliding at the lanes as much as you'd like, apply a touch of sliding powder to the heal. Walk around after that application and take some mini practice runs to test the slipperiness.

    Use a steel brush to increase your slide. Sweeping the brush from heel to toe will create more slide. Tightening the lacing of your sliding shoe also could help you to slide farther. Avoid walking on carpeted snack or bar areas. Stepping in a wet or sticky substance will hinder your ability to make that pretty strike-ball slide.
