Payntrs
« on: December 03, 2017, 04:58:22 AM »

Hi lads!

Thinking of buying some payntr spikes for next season, as only 1/4 of my games are on Astro turf this year I can't justify wearing trainers again all season!

I was just wondering what everyone whose bought a pair thinks of them? I've never owned a pair of spikes as I tend to roll my ankle and do my ligaments pretty much twice a year, so prefer something lightweight like trainers.

I've heard that they are a little bit smaller so go a size up (I'm a 6.5 usually so with the ankle support I wear, 7 sounds about right, I will hopefully go and try some one before Christmas)

Also the 'quick tie' laces seem like more of a nuisance than a help, what's people's thoughts on them?

 Cheers!

If you're having ankle issues then these aren't the shoe for you. Very little support in them, basically just a spiked running shoe. You're still better getting a show from an established footwear brand IMO - any of the NB/Adidas shoes will serve you well.

Got 2 pairs and are spiked running trainers basically

Very comfortable and give the same support as a pair of trainers

Id go half size up and I got rid of the quick laces as soon as I got them as were crap

@NT50 these are not for you with ankle issues.

Would advise something with ankle support.

Sounds like he wants a trainer style due to weight so they could be for him

Cant think of many cricket boots other than fast bowling ones that offer anything like good ankle support?

The adidas bowling boots are just as light as their normal, comparing the pairs i have. Worth considering.

Cool. I thought I must have missed something on the information they sent me.
