Best place for trainer spiking?
« on: August 21, 2020, 12:55:48 PM »

Recommendations for where to get trainers spiked please!

I've bought a pair of Asics Gel-Quantum to get spiked and want to make sure I know all the options before choosing who to go with.

Where are you based?
Brian and Brenda do a good job, as does the shoe Dr in Taunton.
There is also a company in India who make very nice looking spiked up trainers, but they are expensive.

I had my most recent pair done by Cheshire Shoe Repairs who were a good price and turned them round very quickly: http://custombats.co.uk/cbforum/index.php?topic=45872.msg739981#msg739981

I've got some trainers I'm looking to get spiked up. Looking at sending them to Cheshire shoe repairs- does anyone have any examples of their work?

Had these done about 3 seasons ago. Still hanging in there. Lost one front spike on a rock hard track taking middle and there is a bit of rounding where I drag my back foot. Cheshire Shoe Repair also 👍 would recommend.

The hardest part is finding decent white trainers

How would you rate these as batting spikes? I have a pair in my shopping basket waiting for me to purchase

I'm assuming that these spiked up trainers offer basically no protection against the impact of the ball? Do you guys not worry about yorkers?

I have to say that the modern cricket shoe offers no protection in this regard. I currently have a pair of Adidas SL22s and New Balance CK10s and neither offers anything in the way of toe protection.

I'd say you are right  :D but I also think most of the boots on the market these days wont give you much if any protection either. Having taken a yorker in both spiked up runners and a pair of Adidas Vectors - I lost toe nails on both occasions and had a bit of pain for a bit but overall it wasn't too bad.

Ive a top solution for these issues lads.

Use youre bat, I can safely say that Ive never been hit in the foot by a ball unless I accidentally hit it into my foot or hit my foot with my bat. Haha

My Payntr shoes at least have a bit of a shell around the toe but my foot was still black the last time somebody got me with a really good yorker.
