Can I wear bowling shoes outside?

I also had this dilemma when I first started bowling. After some research, it is technically possible to wear bowling shoes outside. But please be aware that these shoes are not designed for outdoor wear, so their soles may not be very grippy, and the fabric can quickly get stained.

Short story:

I was so excited when I finally got my bowling shoes. (Even though they are ugly shoes). I couldn’t wait to try them out at the lanes. But as soon as I got home, I had a dilemma. What do I do with these things? They’re not made to be worn outside!

So I decided to test them out in my backyard first. I took a few practice swings, and everything seemed good. Then I tried taking a step forward… and promptly fell on my face! It turns out the soles of bowling shoes are really slick on the pavement. Who knew?

Lesson learned: don’t wear your bowling shoes outside unless you want to end up flat on the ground!

How to wear bowling shoes outside without getting injured?

If you must wear bowling shoes outside, there are a few things you can do to make sure your feet stay safe. First and foremost, avoid wet surfaces. The soles of bowling shoes will be even slicker when wet, so it’s best to stick to dry ground. Second, if you plan on walking on concrete or asphalt, look for shoes with rubber soles. These will provide more traction and are better suited to outdoor surfaces. Lastly, try using a shoe protector or spray-on coatings such as silicon or wax to give extra grip.
