All Hail the Bowling Shoe

Sunday, December 18, 2011

Nothing beats a trip to the bowling alley, not necessarily for a game of ten pins, but with the chance to wear nerdy red and blue footwear that we exchange our shoes for at the counter.

All Hail the Bowling Shoe.


A mix of practicality, comfort, and geekery, would you wear a pair of bowling shoes as every day wear? I certainly would.

Perhaps readers, this is what attracted my attention to a pair of bowling-esque shoes in Salvos last winter. Terrific. $6.

If you wore them everyday - just don't slip!

Very cute and retro. I'd wear them with jeans on the weekend, just to shake things up. Bet they're comfortable too : >

I LOVE bowling shoes! Andrew McCarthy wore them in the movie 'Mannequin' in the 80's and I have loved bowling shoes for everyday wear ever since! (It's kind of a dumb movie tho! :-) )
