Cricket shoes come in a variety of styles, made by a number of different manufacturers available at Western Sports Centre. They also vary in terms of sizing, from narrow to wide fit, and in price from cheap to expensive. Cricket shoes can be purchased for both players and trainers. It’s important to buy your cricket shoes from a store that is known for making high quality cricket equipment, such as Cape Underwear.
Cricket shoes come in two types: full sole and heel. Full sole cricket shoes have a reinforced rubber sole, while heel shoes have a flexible rubber heel counter. These shoes tend to give more support, compared to other types of footwear. Cricket shoes can be purchased without spikes, or with spikes. Most players prefer to wear spike-less cricket shoes, because they give more flexibly.
Catching cricket shoes usually have a reinforced rubber sole and rubber grip. This gives good grip on soft ground and is more supportive than spiked shoes, which can wear down easily. They are typically used by left-handed batters, but some right-handed batter to use them as well, especially when playing Tests and Twenty20. Generally speaking, the wider the feet are, the better the grip.
Cricket shoes offer many features that make them different from normal athletic shoes and boards. For example, cricket shoes have extra durable rubber soles and lasts longer than ordinary sneakers. This is why it’s always a good idea to purchase extra durable footwear. Aesthetically, cricket shoes have an attractive appearance, with some varieties being pink and/or blue in color. Comfort is also an important factor to consider when purchasing cricket shoes, as the last thing you want is for your feet to get too hot while playing at the cricket field.
There are three main types of cricket shoes available today: leather, synthetic and plastic. The most popular one-piece all-round shoe is called the open heel. It has synthetic spikes that do not go beyond the heel. This makes it possible for players to wear spikes and a bowler can be able to wear a bowling glove without any damage to the foot. These shoes are mostly preferred by left-hand bowlers as it allows them to bowl with greater control and greater facility.
Apart from the grip, the other main difference between synthetic and leather Cricket shoes is the outsole. Traditionally, cricket shoes had black outcomes, which are either made from rubber or plastic. Gray-nicolls have a different outsole design that makes it more durable and flexible. Its texture adds to the grip of the shoe and keeps the player’s feet dry and cool. There are many different brands available and many players prefer to buy a new pair of cricket shoes each season, because their old pair wears out after a few months.
