When you say rubbers, are they like an astroturf sole?

On the look out for a new pair of trainers for indoor nets, now my Asics have finally given up the ghost!

Have payntr said it themselves? Also thought the tounge not being seperate made it hard to squeeze in!

Think i'll have to try the 2018 ones on when they're out then, though i suspect they might be still a little tight looking at those photos!

According to Payntr they're 4mm wider

Not sure how much difference that'll make!

So the big question is...

2018 Payntrs or 2018 Adidas adiZero Boost SL22s?

What do we think?

FIGHT!!

Tried these, the SL22s, the Boosts and the NB. These were by far the most comfortable along with the Boosts, although they are a bit of a struggle to get on. The Boosts were an extra £30 so went for the spiked Paynters as thought they'd be more versatile. You can also pick up the old style Boost for 45 sheets on eBay, which are effectively the same just a different colourway.

SL22s get my vote. The Payntrs were far too tight on the sides of my feet even though I have a narrow foot and even when I tried a size up. The easy laces were also rubbish.

Post by: Mattsky on March 09, 2018, 06:38:46 PM
Oh, right. Interesting. I thought Payntr had solved the issue with the narrow foot width for 2018. Equally, people were saying to order a half size bigger in the SL22s as well!

The problem seemed to be the side support in the show which makes them incredibly stiff. I can understand needing this sort of support in a bowling shoe but it seems unnecessary in a batting shoe

Totally redone for 2018 model, and greatly wider. Also they have removed the easy laces and no longer an option

Were they the 2018 you tried? The 2018s I bought seemed far softer underfoot than the SL22s to me. I really like the look of the SL22s and went with the intention of buying them, but after trying both the Paynters won me over in n terms of comfort. Proper laces now too.

Tried both the 2017 and 2018 versions. Both were too narrow but I would agree that the 2017 were worse.

The SL22s are the closest I have come across to a cricket shoe that has the comfort of a running trainer.

Good stuff, chaps. Any first-hand knowledge of these is dead useful.

Maybe the SL22s need to have a stiffer sole due to their purported energy re-transfer properties?
I'd like to hear any comments on this.
Marketing BS or Sience Fact?
You decide!

The fact is feet are odd things and everyone's feet are different.
As a result everyone will have to try on a range of shoes and find out what works for them.

Shoes are designed for the average foot. There isn't an average foot. Our own feet are usually different sizes!

Where I am going with this is simple. You cant choose a pantyr or an adidas shoe, without trying them on.

Perfectly put.

Exactly why I wear spiked up trainers.... because I have knackered/odd feet that won't fit a thing, so it's a lot easier to find a comfortable pair a light trainers and get them spiked.

I
Depends on how much support for the foot you want. There seems to be a trend of bowlers wearing shoes with far less ankle support than ever used to be the case. These don't offer any support for the ankle so I wouldn't bowl in them

They are bringing out a bowling bit later this year... Wait for those. I found they fried the ground too much and caused Anke issues and knee issues.

Also that was payntr v1.0 not the 2.0 which are on the way 😎

We had a glos wepl player in yesterday buying a pair, you could describe him as a quick bowler. Seemed impressed with the size and fit. As buzz said, always best to try shoes on first if your an awkward fit. Personally these newer payntrs fit as a Nike trainer fits.

I wear an ankle and knee support anyways but I think it's best to wait for the actual bowling shoes to come out.

Cheers lads

@Six Sixes Cricket  other than laces, what would you say the difference is compared the 2017 model? are these better/worse in your view?

@brokenbat Much wider than the previous models, donít get me wrong still tight to get your foot in initially as itís a sock style but once in plenty of room. A few that have been in have said they were disappointed that the shoe didnít have the breathable mesh of a running shoe
Title: Re: Payntr Cricket Shoes
Post by: Buzz on March 12, 2018, 08:53:20 PM
The breathable mesh got filthy after one wear though, so it isn't a surprise they have changed that.
