The battle of the cricket-shoes god brands.

A.  new balance Men's Cricket Shoes

new balance Men's Cricket Shoes

Price

The new balance cricket shoes cost a whopping ₹ 11,999, and it has a high price for a reason: the brand, the materials, the design - everything about this shoe expensive and high-quality. 

Materials

The shoe is meant bowlers and helps them deliver the perfect yorker. A midfoot strap offers additional in case the laces come undone; it also helps keep them in place before so that they don’t untie themselves in the first place.

The shoe’s REVlite midsole offers lightweight, responsive cushioning, contributing to the shoe’s super light 468-gram weight. The three parts of the shoe - midsole, sole, and the shoe itself - are joined by a process called FantomFit; it doesn’t use any sewing process.

The upper part of the shoe is made from leather, giving the shoe strength and rigidity while making it dirt and water-proof.

The shoe has multiple ventilation holes giving the wearer’s foot extra comfort throughout games.

Style

The shoe looks super stylish; it makes use of three major colours (blue, black, and white), all working in harmony to make the shoe look sleek, appealing, and minimal. A bowler with style will definitely pick this shoe any day of the week.

Traction

With 11 metal spikes specifically placed on the sole to provide maximum traction and grip, traction isn’t going to be a problem with these shoes - except when you use them on grassy fields (which, by the way, isn’t the purpose of the shoe).

Comfort

The shoe looks remarkable and fits perfectly. The strap won’t hug your foot too much, as will the laces. The design of the shoe follows the natural shape of the foot. The ventilation is also placed in areas that will need air during games (the toes, mid-foot) to help keep the foot feeling comfortable.


B. Adidas Men's Adipower Vector Mid Cricket Shoes

Price

The Adidas Men's Adipower Vector Mid Cricket Shoes ₹ 11,999. 

Materials

Unlike other cricket shoes, the Adidas cricket shoe is made from mesh-type material, making the shoe very breathable and allowing air into the shoe. There are also multiple miniature holes on the sides of the shoe that allow more air to enter.

The shoe’s closure is a buckle-type. This makes sure that even if the lace gets untied, the shoe won’t leave your foot.  The sole is made from quality EVA foam, cushioning your foot and providing comfort.

The spikes can be interchanged with cleats, depending on the playing conditions (pitch or field).

Style

The shoe uses neutral colors - white and grey. From above, it looks bulkier than it actually is. The sole extends outward and is larger than the shoe itself to allow maximum control and traction.

Traction

Being interchangeable between spikes and cleats, the Adidas cricket shoe provides maximum traction. The positioning of the spikes/cleats also gives emphasis on the shoes’ gripping ability. Some have even tripped when they stopped from running because the shoe stopped instantly but the wearer didn’t.

Comfort

Adidas being Adidas, the shoe provides maximum comfort even if it looks bulky. The sole gives the wearer comfort even during long periods. The cleats don’t dig into the sole and feels like it’s not there.


C. Final Comparison

Between the two, the new balance shoe is still the best option. It is lighter, simplistic, and not at all bulky. The design gives the shoe an advantage because when potential buyers see it for the first time along with the Adidas, it does not look heavy (because it really isn’t).
