Best Bowling Socks 2020

Bowling is a rare sport in that just about everybody tries it at some point. This, of course, is due to the fact that it is also considered an activity for friends to do together or to do with a date.

Those who continue to participate in bowling as they get older tend to take it much more seriously - it is much more than just a fun activity to do on Saturday night. Those who take bowling seriously are proud of their highest score, work diligently to improve their average, and make bowling a part of their every day life.

If you take bowling seriously and are proud of the fact that you are a bowler, or you are shopping for somebody like this, we have collected our favorite bowling themed socks and listed them below. Some of these socks are designed to be bowled in, some are designed to be worn in a more casual setting to add a bit of personality to your outfit. Whatever you are looking for, bowling socks are a great way to incorporate the love of bowling into everything you do!

Best Bowling Slide Sock

Brunswick Bowling Shoe Slide Sock

A bowling shoe slider comes in handy when bowling in particularly humid areas, when your shoes lose their slip and you’re not ready to move on to a new pair, you have trouble sliding, or if you just want a more consistent and guaranteed slide. Many have scoffed at the idea of a bowling shoe sock, but it is our experience that once you try it, you will find it difficult to go back to bowling without one. There’s no better way to make sure you have consistent sliding conditions regardless of where you bowl.

The Brunswick bowling offense shoe slider sock slips right over the front of your slide shoe. It is one size fits all, works on the left or right foot (works for righties and lefties), and is made of napped flannel. The elastic strap ensures a snug fit for most shoe sizes. That said, we noticed the fit started to get really tight at any size above a 13, so this may not be a great choice if you are size 14 or bigger. The Brunswick bowling sock slider is a great product that once you use, you’re likely never to go without again.
