    Cricket Footwear

    Hi there

    I have just started playing cricket and I wanted to know what the best footwear to use. There so many different brands to choose from and I don't know what the best cricketing footwear would be for me. I can tell you that I am a batting all-rounder that occassionally bowls from time to time but also I am livewire in the field and if anyone could give any suggestions what the best one is for me than that would be great.

    Thanks in advance

    Depends on the surface you are playing on. On Grass/Turf you will need spikes, on Sythentic/Mats/Astro/Concrete a god pair of runners will serve you well, or a set of rubber spikes would work as well.

    In terms of brands I would favour a cricket equipment maker over a shoe maker. For example I would purchase a Gray Nicholls pair before a pair from Nike, just because Gray Nicholls would know more about cricket.

    ASICS has some good spikes and rubber studs for slightly higher prices, but they're definitely worth it. I had a GM pair once as well which were alright.

    NB: A G00gle image search for 'thongs' is unexpectedly rewarding.

    I got a pair of Nikes last season. Damn good shoes, found them way better than the ones I had in previous years from Gray Nicholls and Puma.
