I wear a pair of Reebok Pheehan Run Trainers that were Spiked Up by Jake at Vitas.

They are the best thing i have batted in ever.

I "play" in asics gel speed menace full spikes

I'd forgotten they are a bowling boot, (had em three years)
They are pretty knackered now, and I'm looking to use the adidas rubber spiked sl,s

I used to bat in trainers, but felt I was losing a little bit of power in shots, and they were hard work when the wickets were damp, especially running singles etc,(not that I would dream of running)

It was missing out on a big score wearing soft soles that made me change to spikes. Slippery pitch, couldn't turn ones into twos etc. due to sliding about on the turn and no traction at the start.

I'm sure I can generate a lot more power in shots with spikes.

Asics strike rate for me too. Total (No Swearing Please) that you can't find replacement spikes anywhere. I think they still sell them in the asics shop in Street if you need a pair. They were 50.

Spikes (Asics 220) unless it is absolutely rock hard, mid summer pitch; then I will use NB rubber soled cricket boots.
I also love a spike to ensure my guard is marked clearly.

Asics gel strike rate 4's possibly the most comfortable shoe I've ever used, however once they go it's back to spiked trainers

These: https://www.rei.com/product/828600/brooks-cascadia-7-trail-running-shoes-mens

They are feather light, have rubber spikes, and great for light/moderate hikes/trail-running.

Very hard to find these now. I paid full retail price for the first pair but only paid a fraction for the second one. I'd stock up on these if I could find any pairs.

I got them them from VKS (I think!), they were the last pair they had. I don't know where you would get a new pair now as they were hard to find when I got mine. I did have them mine on eBay recently but they went unsold.
