Review Of The Brunswick Vapour Bowling Shoes
Comfort, durability and beauty. These are the most common words that are used to describe the Vapour bowling shoes by Brunswick. There are 3 colorways that are available; White/Black, Black/Silver & Black/Copper, all with their own unique character. The Vapour is a solid choice if you're in the market for an affordable and well made pair of bowling shoes.
Let's get the basic specifications out of the way first!
* Synthetic leather construction
* Performance Synthetic Uppers
* Foam Padded Collar & Tongue
* EVA outsole
* Pure Slide soles
First of all, the light construction of the shoe make it super comfortable to play in because of the padded collar and tongue and the extra light EVA outsoles. In the beginning you may find the fit to be snug, but if you adjust the tongue and loosen the laces, the shoes will gradually loosen up for an awesome fit. Speaking of the fit, the fit is true to size, and if you prefer a wider shoe these shoes fit surprisingly well.
The design of this shoe is great. The 3 different colorways are all unique and have their own character with my favourite being the Black/Copper. The Vapour is a classic, timeless design and really do look like your conventional "street shoes" which is a step above those rental shoes the centres usually give you. In fact, when I was trying them out at home a friend of mine asked me if they were a new "Adidas Crowns" (because of the crown on the shoe!), and when I told him they were bowling shoes he was blown away.
The performance of these shoes, specifically the sliding, is not the best but it gets the job done. The unremovable (this may deter some people) universal slides may be sticky and can sometimes leave smudges on the approach. I use powder for my slides, but I don't really like using it because it may affect other bowlers. This is the only problem with the Vapours, they simply don't slide as well as other shoes.
Overall, the Brunswick Vapour is a solid choice for a bowling shoe especially if you're looking for something reliable and affordable. The comfort is really what stands out with these shoes, it's so light that you feel like you're walking on clouds. The design of the shoe is also simple but classic in 3 awesome colorways, and you are 100% able to pass these off as "street shoes". Performance of the slides could be better, but for the price you can't expect Heaven and Earth. I would highly recommend these, but don't just take my word for it. With over 500 reviews and a 4.5 star rating on amazon, and high scores on many other sites such as bowling.com, it seems everyone really likes these shoes.
