I've ordered these, basketball shoes. Should give decent support for me trundling in and, of course, boost is life.

Will run them in at winter nets then send them for spiking

I live 5 mins from an Adidas outlet in the East Mids. Last week they had the Harden Boosts that Stokes wore in his famous innings on the b grade shelf for 35, nothing wrong with them just no box. The big #13 on the heel put me of them though. Some real bargains on that shelf.

I had these boosts spiked by B&B. Great job and very comfortable.

What I would say with spiking trainers is this...
You want to get a good pair spiked. That means spending 50+ on the shoes. Plus 33+3.50 postage to get them done means you are spending a minimum of nearly 90.

90 buys you a lot of cricket specific shoe including the new balance, puma or adidas spikes.

I'd be tempted by this if I played on grass more often. @Buzz makes a good point, but I've always struggled to find cricket spikes that were properly comfortable. Payntr rubber spiked shoes are the best I've used so far and they're more like a trainer than a traditional cricket shoe so I can see the appeal in having a durable pair of trainers spiked up.

I used Cheshire Shoe Repairs for mine last season, excellent work and a good saving over Shoe Doctor, who also do a good job.

Hard to find these in white in the UK, have you found anywhere other than the adidas outlet?

While we taking about shoes/spikes. Are rubber spikes any good on field or/and they good while batting?

What is the round up of the spiking options?

Brian and Brenda the preferred one?
Do Owzat use B&B but just charge a touch more?
Shoe Doctor in Taunton also good?

I think I will try batting in a full spike this season but just use shorter spikes to get something between the grip of a normal spike and the Adidas Boost spikey rubber sole. I'm not a fan of batting in normal spikes as I drag my feet around a lot and feel a bit "stuck" with a normal full spike.

Yup know what you mean. I've started batting in boosts. But prefer normal trainers when dry (with no spikes).

Only bat in spike if muddy or soft.

How do you mark your guard when not wearing spikes? The Chanderpaul method?

Instead of having to change between spikes and normal trainers depending on whether wet/dry, isn't it better to just use rubber spikes that do the job for both conditions?

Also, i wonder why pros (batsmen) use spikes always, many of the wickets they bat on must be hard as road and i thought the harder the surface, harder it is to stand on spikes..

The wicket is rock hard but the rest of the square will be watered far more frequently than a club wicket so the spikes are needed to stop them from sliping when running off the strip.

Agree, the spikes help outside the pitch. But wondering if wicket is quite hard, wouldn't one find it quite inconvenient on the pitch itself, like say if you try walking with spikes on concrete - it is very difficult, so I assume similar feeling on such a pitch?

Well no not really because they arent actually walking on concrete are they, theres gonna be much more give in a pitch than concrete regardless of how hard the deck is
