Subject: Dexter came through
I had placed a post regarding the ABS shoes and how people like them that
had been Dexter shoe users previously.

My pair of SST5's had failed on the right shoe (my none slide foot). The
inside of the sole had separated and actually torn apart. So a portion of
the sole was actually missing. I contacted Dexter and they told me to send
them the shoe. In the past when something like this had happened I would
take it to a Dexter rep and they have repaired my shoe. This time they
didn't and said I should contact Dexter.

Well last week I had a new pair of SST5's on my door step! I figured the
best I could hope for was a discount! The only problem with the new ones
were they are cut differently and did not fit. So, I went to my local
proshop and they exchanged them for a 1/2 size larger. It is all good!

Dexter really came through and appreciate the extra effort!

I have been bowling with the same pair of SST5's for the past 6 years. I
finally decided it was time for a new pair (I didn't really "need" them
since my shoes are in excellent condition... I just wanted a new pair).
I decided to get a pair of SST6's. I used them for the first time
tonight. The extra width does wonders for your balance! I bowled a game
of practice before league and found that the normal #5 heel will need to
be well broken in before I can actually use it. I switched to the #7 red
felt heel and had a perfect slide. I was nailing the pocket the first
game but having a little carry trouble... clean 215 game. Second game
opened up big time... clean game with a five bagger 2nd-6th frame, 257.
Third game broke down into a severe over/under condition... 4-6-7 split,
4-6 split, 4-6-7 split to start the game. I finally found that the best
shot was 12 at the arrows to no further than 10 at the break point.
Leaking it out would send the ball Brooklyn... pulling the ball would
leave a corner pin or go through the beak for a potential split (I
avoided, by shear luck, two more splits in that game) . I was lucky to
walk away with a 173. All in all, I really like my new SST6's... Is it
March 18th yet? :-P

Tony,

My SST5's did not hold up very well at all. I have had them a little more
than 2 years. Maybe that was part of the reason they replaced them. The
inner liner was falling apart when I sent the non-slide shoe in. The new
ones look like they are better made than the old ones. And they are more
comfortable now that I have the right size.

AMEN! I switched to Dexter in the last year due to plantar fasciitis (ouch)
and the width and cushioning on the inside has completely won me over. The
heel/sole combinations are a total bonus.

Lisa,

< plantar fasciitis >

I have the same problem. I wear an orthotic insert for both feet. I have a
pair for sports and a pair for my dress shoes. Made the world of difference!
Now I can jog again!

I went with physical therapy and prednisone. High heels are now a thing of
the past (big deal) but I can keep bowling!

Yeah, I had to stop wearing heels too! LOL I remember the day the doc
checked my feet. He placed his finger around the heel of my foot. I thought
I was going to shot across the room from the pain. I have to go in this year
for an evaluation for new devices.

My doctor did the same thing, and all I could do was yell "Oh, $HIT!!" I was
sweating and shaking because it hurt so bad. Thank heaven for therapy now
though. I used to hate getting out of bed or getting off the couch after
sitting a while because it was so painful. I couldn't wear my Linds because
the bottoms were so flat and hard (I even tried Dr. Scholls inserts).

Since my feet weren't flat the Dr. wanted to try drugs and therapy for a
while before orthotics, and it worked.

Woo hoo!

I have to admit, the Peacock SST6's (the ones you have) are pretty damn
awesome... but no longer in production. I bought the Blue Metal/Black
Trim SST6's. I also like the Burgundy Heavy Metal SST6's a lot.

I got mine off Ebay brand new, and liked 'em so much I went back to Ebay and
got a second pair waiting in the wings ($60 per pair).

They still have great customer service & people who haved worked in the show
industry and taught by the "old school" guys. I had an issue come up on the
duratips years ago on the first SST and they sent me out extras. My new
SST's are just as nice as the first ones and are not wearing out as fast.
Thanks Dexter!
