I just play in astro turf football boots. Probably a bunch of reasons why that's not a good idea but I've never had any problems.

I use NB 4030 full spikes for batting and bowling - they work well for me.

Why do people use 1/2 spikes instead of full?

You can sometimes catch your heel when pivoting on a shot, and most of the grip when running is from the front half of the foot anyway, except maybe when you're putting the breaks on.

You've set the standard now, we expect you to go in to bat without pads or gloves at the next forum net...  ;)

Even though I have some new shoes, I'm still rocking my 5 year old Asics gel advanced 4 shoes.

I bat in trainers where possible.  I only feel comfortable in trainers.   Any hint of dampness in the pitch though and the half spike asics gel advance go on and I have to try to put it out of my mind that I am in spikes !

SL22 boosts for me too, never had a grip problem and so much more comfy than anything else I have had.
