Title: Best shoe for cushioning/comfort
Post by: Wozaboxa on October 03, 2021, 01:02:35 PM
Hi All, looking to replace my puma cricket spikes, I find I need a shoe with plenty of heel cushioning, I'm a heavier gentleman and find at the end of a game (I don't bowl) my feet are killing me, mainly on the heel area, I'm not sure if this is down to Plantar but I don't really get it with football boots or normal trainers. just my cricket shoes.

Looking for some recommendations.

I just got a pair of New Balance CK10 that I really like, much more cushioning than the Asics Gullys that I had before.


With spikes though I think the comfort depends so much on the individual's foot shape and gait etc so it's probably worth trying on a few.

I got a set of Pumas at the end of this season, they definitely feel more cushioned than my ASICS so would probably rule those out. Payntr were also not massively cushioned IMO.

Another option might be getting a pair of comfortable and supportive trainers spiked up?

I had a pair of Adidas Solar Glides spiked up for this season.  Excellent stability (I am an over pronantor) and cushioning

Most bowing spikes (adidas, NB) have good heel cushioning. Adidas is a bit narrow in the toe box, Nb a bit wider. Both should be comfortable enough to bat in.

as I play a lot on astros I've gotten Adidas Terrex trailrunners. Those are really the best shoe I've ever owned for cricket.

Worn Adidas for years but wasnt so keen on the 22 yards (bit rigid and heavy) and Vector pushing the budget.

As I bowl (medium trundle these days) I want some support that spiking trainers wouldnt provide so have opted for the Payntre 263 all rounder shoes which I purchased in a sale for £50 - not worn in anger but great support and plenty of cushioning compared to the orginal style

Really suffered from plantar fasciitis the last couple of years.

Got some Adidas Ultraboosts spiked up and been an absolute game changer. Better than any spikes Iíve ever worn!
