Need something like this or Ive even heard that they have fabric that does the same. Soft material that hardens on impact. Shoe companies could just sew the fabric into the shoes.

I see some Footy boots selling for 250 so who knows.
 Ive never been hit bad enough there to even worry about this type of product. Its not life threatening if I did get hit there so I'm not worried.

You heard it here first. Contact sports, Cricket clothing and Motor sport clothing to be made of that material. No more bulky pads for sport.

Perhaps all it needs is for the actual toe of the boot to be made from D30.
Job done.

Hey guys thank you so much for the continual enthusiasm!

It does look like ver1.1 has done it's job! Not suitable but it's got us all thinking and talking!

If I could design a shoe from scratch (someone please do this!) I'd insert a framework in the toe, similar to a rib cage with thin flat ridge arches as part of the toe fabric, vacuum formed prior to sewing/assembling. They would compress when bending, but provide support in "bridging" over the foot.

Thermoplastics used for splinting are a great option as a single shaped disc could mould to fit in any shoe. There is still a question on fit & size as they will need to be a certain thickness and no-ones going to buy new shoes just to fit their toe caps (well, maybe on this forum ;))

External protection is possible, I made samples last year and they threaded with the laces and wrapped under the midfoot sole. Will look into this in more detail.

Otherwise the secret weapon is still unreleased, I have a knitted material (yes like your socks) which is thin, breathable and sets rigid once "activated".

So,
Better shoes would help to start!
Outer protection could additionally include padding on the side of feet facing the bowler.
"gumshield" type protection would fit, but will be sweaty and possibly get in the way
Knitted option, I need to show this working

Again, thank you everyone for your continual help, you all fricking rock!

I'd be happy to field test it for you if you produce them.

Remember seeing these a while back and thinking it must be possible to use them in cricket - for improved if not perfect protection:

Might have been said already but Matthew Hayden batted with toe protectors on the outside of his shoes...
