So the list of 'not available in' comprises 3 major cricketing nations UK, SA and India ...  I'd say they are withdrawing from this segment? 

Never seen many top players wearing Asics except for the 'unspectacular great' types like Williamson and Amla. (sadly!) I doubt there are many kids running around wanting to be like those players and hence I doubt the shoe sales are as high as for whatever ABD, Kholi et al types are seen in.

Asics also used to (cannot comment recently) make life difficult with spikes that were not interchangeable with most other brands i.e. hard to replace.

In the IPL loads of players are wearing spiked up asics from Ahura Sports in india. A snip at 140 posted to the UK.
These were cheaper than that...

Love the look of these @Buzz ! How is the fit like? And how is the width of the shoe, particularly around the arch? (Have flat feet and wear orthotics, so like spikes to be quite wide around that part)

Hi, to be honest I haven't worn them, other to try them on. But they are a standard Asics fit, and wider/a better fit than my adidas boots.

My asics are on the way out after four years, reckon I've found their replacements!
