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
