The Asics Gel ODI are the best spokes Ive ever worn. Sadly they are ridiculously difficult to get hold of and even harder to find replacement spikes for

63 plus 5 postage plus 3 postage plus 35 adds up to 106.

You can get a lot of cricket shoe for that money.
I have found a great pair of asic trainers I was going to buy and get spiked, but the time I added all the cost up I could buy a top of the range shoe from any of the leading providers..  I decided not to bother.
Which should get me banned I guess

I'd also suggest trying to do some batting in them first and trying to run a quick two or three. I've found with the knit shoes that when turning the foot slips over the sole and the knit simply stretches with the foot. Almost going over on an ankle at times. Most running shoes are designed for running in straight lines for as long as possible, not quick changes of direction. I think this is why lots of people have moved towards getting tennis shoes spiked.

In my experience, GN are pretty comfy for people with wide feet.

Anyone notice that the ASICS Gel Advance 6 is a much looser fit than the Gel Advance 4?

Has anyone tried their Gel Odi ?

Suppose it depends how wide. My feet are pretty wide size 12 pc plods and I find them if anything too wide. I have Evospeed one8 Rfade - yes, the embarrassing orange ones...
