I had some trainers done a fair few years ago at Brian and Brenda and they were on a different level of comfort. Most of these spiking companies make sure that the sole comes right round to the toe box area so there is a bit of protection

The hardest part is finding decent white trainers

I picked up some gel kayano 25s fairly cheap in my local ASICS outlet store so hoping they turn out decent!

How would you rate these as batting spikes? I have a pair in my shopping basket waiting for me to purchase
I've been a big fan, but if purely for batting shoes I'd at least consider something lighter - they're not too bad but definitely on the sturdy side, excellent for an allrounder.

Do specialist cricket spikes genuinely offer much toe protection? Can't say I've ever had a pair that have been any different from tennis shoes which is what I've used the last few years.

I used Quick Service Shoe Repairs in Haverhill to do my spiking this year. Very pleased with the result.
Still wear SL22s/ NB CK10AA to bowl in but looking to replace with some spiked trainers.

Ive had a few pairs done through Owzat (who use Brian & Brenda) my only issue is the sew part of the sole which after a while creates a weakness at the edge of the sole and the sole starts to peel away.
Current pair were done at Shoe Doctor and its a much better finish IMO

They were 42 for full spike including return postage-I think half spike is 35. Really happy with the result and it was a really good turnaround time given that we have had some snow and poor weather which could have affected the post both ways!

That's really helpful, thanks.  It had been 5 years since I last bowled in a game so something lighter sounds a better better. I am one it seems of a number who suffer from plantar fascia and also achillies pain so have been looking for something that offers more stability

Plantar fascia seems the latest forum trend! I had nasty achilles pain problems a couple of years ago after recovering from a leg break and do think sorting sports shoes out was what got rid of it in the end.

I over-pronate when running which puts pressure on my foot and achillies.  Running is fine because there is good availability of specialist shoes but cricket shoes don't offer the same choice

Plantar fascia is horrific, I got it about a year after recovering from chronic shin splints for two years.

Ill be sorting a pic of my spikes I got done once my refurb from Neon comes back, used once already in last game of the season and I love them.

I was going to send a pair over to a guy at SpyderBats Uk, based in Stoke. However talking to him he recommended tennis shoes for seam bowling in trainer spikes.

Having had no new bowling boots since 2015 I may bite the bullet and buy some specialist bowling boots. Instead of playing spiked up trainer lottery with injuries, have spiked up trainers for batting
