@Churchy1989 , nice looking shoe but a word of warning.

Had a number of consults with my podiatrist this year, the business also specialises in custom cricket shoes.
The shoe you posted looked like it contains a lot of mesh in the upper of the shoe. This isn't very strong or supportive.
If you spend anytime in front of the bat where you need to start/stop quickly or change directions you might find they wear out quickly.

Podiatrist (who didn't push any products to me) suggest that for fielding especially, get a cross trainer (sideways movement stability) with about 80% (or more) leather upper (or synthetic equivalent) to spike up so they last.

this is great advise and has been my experience as well. Generally cricket shoes have far more in common with cross trainers than runners

Good leather cross trainers, like you suggest, in white are pretty hard to find these days.

@Bat and Ball Cricket Thanks for the advice. But these are the same as ones I use at nets and not had a problem.

Only going to be at 1st Slip and maybe turn my arm over now and again.

Am looking for Batting shoes tho, so might have a look for Leather ones...

I'm also on the market for a new pair of spikes. I am a batsman and fielder who will move around the field a lot patrolling the boundaries. I need a pair of spikes that will be be comfortable for the whole duration of the innings and be extremely light too. I use to own asics gel advance 6. Are these still one of the lightest comifest shoes around???? Also it seems to me at the moment asics haven't got 2017 range for the gel advance or gel Odi's? how would people compare these shoes to the puma or Sl22 boost???

Asics Gel Advance easily the best cricket shoes I've worn. I think they might be discontinued, or perhaps re-branded (The Gel Gullys look to be the most like the old Gel Advance, at least here is Aus), but do some research as there might be some previous season stock floating around at a reduced price. I got my Gel Advance 5s for $40 off compared to the 6, the only difference being the colourway, which is not a big deal.
