With blue skies and no rain forecasted for several weeks to come, it’s a perfect time for England’s blockbuster five match test series against India to begin. If you find yourself inspired watching the likes of Root, Anderson or Kohli next week, we’ve got the low down on the cricket boot brands that could help you play like the pros.

Adidas

Endorsed by arguably England’s greatest ever bowling partnership, between James Anderson and Stuart Broad who have over 950 test match wickets. Adidas use lightweight protective materials to provide comfort and breathability ensuring your feet remain comfortable during the rigors of a three or four-hour fielding stint. Adidas also create bespoke boots depending if you’re a batter or a bowler.

Payntr

Payntr launched back in 2017. Having already secured some of the biggest names in the cricket world, including Darren Sammy and Mahendra Dhoni. Payntr focuses on making their boots not only lightweight and practical for cricket, but as comfortable as a running shoe.

Kookaburra

A traditional slick all white design combined with protection throughout the whole foot. Kookaburra’s lightweight insole, heel and front support help reduce shockwaves. The low midsole provides superb shock absorbency that shows Kookaburra really are thinking about the performer’s comfort and safety at all times.

Puma

As one of the biggest sporting apparel brands in the world, it’s no surprise to see cricketing icons such as Virat Kohli and New Zealand’s Brendon McCullum endorsing the brand. Offering the right mixture of speed and stability, Puma have several versions of their boots available depending on if you prefer the extra comfort of having a strap.

New Balance

Having launched a new and exciting range for the 2018 season, this time round New Balance decided to focus their attention on designing a cricket spike to withstand the force produced by bowling at maximal effort. New Balance have also created boots that are lightweight enough for fielders to cover large amounts of turf when fielding in the deep.
