Most cushioned cricket shoes
« on: February 01, 2019, 10:19:00 AM »

Bit of an odd question, but i thought it might be interesting to get peoples views and experiences -

what do people think are the most 'cushioned' or 'bouncy' cricket shoes? I've tried a couple of brands that i feel are a bit hard, less cushioned, particularly on sun baked outfields.

Seeing as I'm built for comfort and not speed, I think I'd like my shoes to reflect this!

Payntrs or Asics for me.

I get really bad pain in my heels throughout the cricket season and these are the only two brands that I've worn that I don't.

For me the adidas boost is the comfiest and bounciest cricket shoe. Although I'm not a fan of the plastic spikes as I find they don't give nearly as much grip as traditional spikes.

Ive always used ASICS with inserts to stop my pronation. Works a treat for me cushioning wise, I am also built for comfort not stealth!

Sorry can i jump in on this thread... looking for batting spikes. Thinking of trying adidas as I have a pair of white trainers  use sometimes and they are comfy.

What's the difference between the howzat range and vectors? Or Boosts?
The Howzats are cheaper? What are they conceding on?

You don't know how they are fit wise? Are they similar to their trainers?

My boost spikes are easily the best cricket-specific shoes I've had, I also own ultraboosts and think the cushioning is very similar despite the boost layer being thinner in the cricket shoe.
@Yorkershire the fit is very close to the trainer, I have the same size cricket shoe and trainer

Thanks I'm split between SL22 or Howzats.

Anyone have experience of the howzats?

They look wider?

The howzats are a hybrid shoe so offer more protection for the ankle when bowling but are heavier as a result.  The sl22s are designed soley for batting so are lighter.

Thanks gone with the Sl22s. I use NB 4040 for fielding, I hardly bowl but have a bad ankle and like the extra support.
