Modern cricket shoes resemble trainers, but the import difference is the additional comfort and grip they provide on the pitch. There are different cricket shoe profiles for different surfaces: if you usually play on grass, spiked shoes or cricket spikes will provide extra grip, whereas pimpled rubber soles are more appropriate for hard surfaces, artificial pitches or indoors.
Some cricket shoes feature a combination of the two; for example, batsmen often wear half spikes to provide extra grip at the front. Fast bowlers on the other hand tend to wear full spikes, with extra ankle support. Experienced cricketers will have their own preferences when it comes to cricket shoes, but if we have learned anything from former England captain Mike Atherton, who famously slipped while batting at Lord’s in 1993, the right pair are essential!
