Many avid followers of Australian cricket will have noted that in recent times the cricket protective equipment, namely the cricket thigh guards, the inner thigh guards and even the cricket chest guards, do not look anything like the ones that are available to be bought by the public.
The simple answer to this is that, this protective equipment that was used by the Australian cricket stars was not available to the general public. It was made by Remfry and each and every piece of equipment was custom made and fitted to fit the needs and sizes of the players. Makes staying at the crease a whole lot easier when you have a custom sized thigh guard and custom sized inner thigh guard.
That has all changed and Remfry protective cricket equipment is now available to the public. Of course this is not in the form of custom size ordering but more generic sizes have been produced so that this exceptional protective cricket equipment can be available to the public.
It goes without saying that if the top Australian cricketers like Michael Clarke and Steve Smith are trusting Remfry for their cricket thigh guards and other inner protective cricket equipment that this is a top-of-the-line range.
The range includes arm guards and in terms of quality it is far superior to anything out there on the market. It has a leather wrapping and a toweled inside. The unique thermo material that is the composite of all these protective gears is such that the more you wear it, the more it moulds to your own shape.
Remfry has the warranty to back their products up and they offer a warranty that is almost double anything else on the cricket protective gear market. It is so often the case that a company that specializes in a particular cricket gear is superbly effective in beating the competition. This is definitely the case with Masuri Helmets and Remfry.
We all know that cricket players have certain custom designs that they like in a cricket shoes. Ever since there has been specific footwear for cricket, players have been customizing to suit their needs. Then there is taking it to a whole new level. That would be Chris Gayle’s adidas ZX750 cricket shoes. The shoes are super stylish and bar the spikes they would not be out of a place on a casual night out.
The most striking part of these cricket shoes is the fact that Gayle has the world “GayleForce” emblazoned on the side of the shoe. The emblazonment has been so perfectly places that as Gayle takes strike to face the bowler, the bowler and the TV camera are staring straight at the words.
Gayle in fact has had a pair customized in maroon for when he plays with the West Indies and in Green and Yellow for his beloved Jamaica Tallawahs.
The configuration of the spikes is also quite unique and customized in true Chris Gayle fashion. He has opted for a full on trainer back of the shoe, with absolutely zero modification to what is essentially an adidas sneaker. Then the front of the shoe is fitted with 7 spikes. The thinking is that Gayle is going for comfort on the sole of the foot and grip with the toes and ball of the foot that will grip the surface when playing his shots and running between the wicket.
Typically faster bowlers will need spikes on their cricket shoes on the front and the back. In addition to this players that field on a damp surface from rain or dew will also need full spikes and perhaps even longer spikes. Gayle himself and other batsmen would also need longer and full spikes if the wicket is shiny or slippery.
There have been batsmen at international level that have batted in trainers on very dry abrasive surface. Although nowadays the cricket shoes are so comfortable from adidas, New Balance and other specialized cricket brands that players do not forgo the balance offered by quality cricket shoes.
