Bowling Shoes

Bowling Shoes  

Bowling shoes are typically made out of leather and rubber. The soles of the shoes act much like the bowling lanes themselves: they are both made to be super slick. Wearing slick shoes helps you slide while you're bowling. This is important because it enables you to achieve a smoother motion.

According to history experts, the first bowling shoes were manufactured in 1888. Thanks to the unique leather, the oldest footwear was tough and water resistant. This is why many bowlers wore their bowling shoes during tennis and cricket matches.

Bowling has been known by such names as: bowls, skittles, kegling, ninepins, Dutch pins and quilles. The word bowl could be derived from the Saxon bolla which meant "bubble" originally, but which later came to mean anything spherical.
