Makes total sense, really; adidas provide custom boots for their football players, so why wouldn't they do so for their top cricket stars  :D

Jimmys boots dont have the strap so has to be custom, broads also had a hole for his toe which looks made for rather than self cut!

I've noticed Stokes' New Balance have a considerable cut in one of his boots for his big toe too! Looks as if it is a genuine modification for a specific bowler's needs.

Can only imagine jimmy is a little more light footed through the crease.

Has been for years! Definitely one for the more hit the crease hard type bowler though. Less seen these days now that bowling boots have hugely improved, but used to be pretty standard. I remember seeing the boots of various England bowlers on tv with cutouts in the toe as a teenager and thinking what a great idea it was before immediately taking the scissors to my GN boots... sweet relief the next time I bowled. Less good for those days when you remember you're an amateur and have to play on a sopping wet outfield though!
