Asics Gel advance vs payntr X MK2
« on: April 27, 2018, 01:24:49 PM »

Thinking of switching from my SL22 Boosts to either the gel advance 6 or the 2018 Payntr X MK2. The reason I'm switching is because I find I was slipping alot on the square when fielding in the SL22 boost and I could never use them for batting as I'd slip too often. I'm primarly a batsman and a fielder so anyone had any experience with the 2? which one is the most comfortable. I also felt with the SL22 boost after 50 years i felt sore in the feet!!!

Not tried the Asics but the Payntr x mk2's are very comfortable  and light. They are quite small tho.

Can you get to a shop and try them on? If so, just buy whichever you find more comfortable. If you're buying blind, I'd go for the Asics all day long.

Anyone else using the payntr mark 2s get sore toes ? I think the upper is too firm when planting your foot I really feel it in my toes, getting my boosts spiked up and will go back
To them

You could try the normal SL22 as they have the same upper as the Boost...its just the sole plate thats different. If you are looking for a comparison between the Payntr and Asics, then I would say both are very good shoes, but the Asics are a class above! They really are very comfortable and would be my 1st choice.
