Title: Indoor cricket shoe
Post by: Churchy1989 on October 15, 2017, 08:42:34 PM
Never had any, but due to the amount of indoor nets i will be having i think it's a good idea to buy some.

For bathing and bowling.

What do you use? What would you recommend?

Having seen some one play with no shoes.....I can assure you flip flops are not for me.

haha you might want to check your spec of what they are needed for hence the replies...Id assume you'd be wanting a rubber ducky type sole personally.

Is this a typo or do you actually need an indoor shoe for bathing?

Have a pair of NB ones, if you can get a pair in the sale over winter they're ace.

I must admit I have never really got the point of indoor cricket shoes. Unless you are playing proper indoor cricket matches or are a quick bowler maybe. Why not just were a decent comfortable pair of trainers?

If youve copped one on the foot from your quick wearing normal trainers you'd see the benefit. Broke a few metatarsels wearing trainers. Not broken anything since, and he has a decent yorker

It is a fair point and the protection thing is always the issue when deciding on shoes or trainers etc... whether indoors or outside.

I have always found that if i am going to get hit on the foot it doesn't matter what i am wearing its going to bloody hurt!  :( :(

I actually purchased a decent safety trainer as I have had 2 toes broken in separate incidents!
As a bonus, the brand is a bonus, although not the same TK as we know and love!

Pete - with the steel toe cap how light are they?

I do recall @petehosk taking one on the toes at the last indoor Southern net - at that price that's quite decent for protection.

Just some Bowling shoes needed then - I did like @FattusCattus NB ones...what version were they?

I can't remember where I put them away for Winter!
But they are actually very light for the protection they offer!!
Not as light as the new light cricket shoes but for nets batting I don't notice any weight to them. And the toe cap goes all the way back to almost where the laces start, so the protection is incredible! If you got a 90mph yorker on your toe you seriously wouldn't feel a thing!

Did the toe guard from Stretton ever come to fruition?

@Churchy1989  - I think mine were the CK4040 rubber pimpled ones from a couple of years ago. They are very comfy and light, and I've ended up using the indoor and out.

Think George is likely flat out with the bike helmet this year.
