About Dexter Bowling
For over fifty years, Dexter has produced high-quality footwear. Founded in 1957, Dexter began with their traditional boat shoe, and has since progressed to stand as the premier name in bowling. As an American brand with American values, we have a deep respect for tradition, which is reflected in the time-honored designs of our shoes. We also have a commitment to innovation, which is why we continually update our construction methods and materials to keep pace with the cutting edge of footwear technology.
At Dexter Bowling, we set and then exceed every standard as we continuously strive to enrich the sport of bowling through vision and innovation. Innovations like our patented interchangeable sole and heel combinations have had a huge impact on the sport. Our newest traction soles provide an even more concentrated focus on technique and approach. Careful craftsmanship and attention to the finest details keep Dexter ahead of the game.
Each year, along with the United States Bowling Congress, Dexter selects the Dexter/USBC High School All-American Team in which ten high school students are awarded scholarships for their excellence in the classroom and on the lanes. We also provide support to bowling’s youth by sponsoring the Teen Masters Tournament. Dexter’s ultimate goal of the Teen Masters is to pay for the winner’s entire college education! Dexter is also well-represented on the Professional Bowlers Association. In addition to all of our Team Dexter Pro Staff members, many other pros on Tour choose Dexter to give them the competitive edge. Dexter’s involvement with bowlers at the youth, high school, college and professional levels shows our ever-present impact throughout bowling.
From technological innovations to ultra-comfortable constructions, Dexter has been giving bowlers an advantage for decades. Not only do we strive to please those competitive bowlers that are looking to maximize their performance, but we also work to bring the casual bowler a reliable footwear option for their trip to the lanes. Our all-encompassing vision and commitment to bowling has helped Dexter maintain the title of the Number One Bowling Shoe in the World.
