Title: Payntr 2020 range. Thoughts?
Post by: SouthpawMark on January 27, 2020, 04:59:20 PM
The new Payntr shoes are up on their site. Last years were ridiculously good, and I really liked the clean looks (the white ones anyway). What’s everyone’s thoughts on the 2020 range? I know comfort should be the most important factor, but aesthetically they look a bit of a mess (in my humble opinion anyway).

The 2020 styling looks awful in my view but then I prefer the minimalist look which isn't a feature of a lot of modern cricket kit sadly.  It is the fit that is most important though and i have found that to be terrible.  I haven't tried this year's model on thing so can't comment on that aspect

I feel they have lost their uniqueness. They just look like any other generic cricket shoes now

They're not awful but definitely prefer the colour scheme on the 2019 range.

I agree with this, they aren't much different aesthetically now from other brands

I think the new bowling boot looks great. I suspect they are trying to offer a different style of shoe to suit different markets. They are still doing the previous model.

The trainers are yuck.

Cricket shoes aren't much different to anything else on the market.

Prices seem a bit high in my opinion.

In short, I'm not a fan!

Not a fan personally. Really liked their previous shoes, it’s just a shame they fell apart after 18 games

Meh, not pushing my buttons. I much prefer the new Puma stuff.

Still trying to return my Black Friday purchase, once in a blue moon you may get a reply and then nothing. Had to escalate to paypal now and it has totally put me off using them.

Shame, as I'd like to support a British company.

Yikes, that’s not good. Like the esteemed CBF forum member above, I am a fan of the 2020 Puma 19.1s, so am going to use those for fielding and slow left arm filth, and the 2020 NB CK10 when I put on a batting masterclass.

I was curious about them too, and did some research. Seems like they are chinese based (very surprising to come from a non-cricketing nation)

Will cricket bats from China be next - mass produced G1s at GBP 50 ??

They’ve sure brought something different to the market initially, however know a lot of guys had foot and ankle issues using them. Anyone on here had anything similar?

The Mk2 were just about the most comfortable cricket shoes I’ve ever worn. No issues with sole comfort. The only issue I had was the cushioning material, which wore out very quickly around the inside of the big toe when bowling (I drag my back foot in delivery stride). The only shoes that have given me foot issues were the early Adidas shoes (around 2006-7) with the red stripes on the front. The natural bend on the soles was nearer the mid foot, and caused me a stress fracture. Awful shoes!

Only issue I had was that the fit is very snug, easily solved by getting a slightly larger size than usual.

That's quite an interesting kit you're rocking there, is that a T20 special?

In regards to injuries, I did notice that all of Payntr's range say they are not suitable for bowling in which is not something I've seen from any other brand which makes me wonder how much testing they did into the support provided during running, twisting etc.

I suspect thats why their range is now looking more like every other shoe... Probably that and a combination of trying to bring the manufacturing costs down.

I did quite like their original designs as they clearly stood out but I have used Asics for along time and now when ever I try something new it never quite matches up so have decided to just stick with them now.

I have The mk2's spikes , very comfy. Sadly the shoe was very prone to splitting.
I have the mk3 pimples, same size, but the fit on the sole/heel for me is terrible.

As with any committed kit badger, I was quite excited to see something new come to the market but these shoes are a huge dissapointment.

Ultimately they are trying to build a product from scratch to.compete with some huge companies with massive development budgets and a wealth of experience

Last years were up there with the very best cricket shoes I’ve ever worn, and I didn’t care that I was wearing a shoe that not many had heard of. This years are totally different. It’s almost as if the company has been sold and they’ve shifted production to the cheapest factory they could find. A huge disappointment.
