Chris Gayle’s Cricket Shoes


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.

Gunn & Moore maxi protective shorts


The Gunn & Moore maxi protective shorts are a pretty good pair of shorts. i have used them for about 2 seasons before i switched out to the more expensive Aero stripper moulded thigh guard. The GM shorts are made of cotton and are body hugging. They have all the necessary padding in them and offer a thigh pad as well as an inner thigh guard. The one pouch they don’t have is the abdomen protector. therefore you need to either wear a jock strap, underpants or other shorts with an inner liner. So that brings me to my problem with these pads. You will probably get pretty hot and sweaty if you war these. With basically 3 layers of clothing over you family jewels.

So basically i would say that these shorts are pretty good if you are on a budget. If you can afford the more expensive thigh pads then go for them instead. however if you are on a bit of a budget then these shorts will serve you well as i used them for 2 or 3 seasons and they were just fine.

i hope you have found this cricket gear review useful and easier to make a purchase decision.

brian lara gray nicolls scoop autographed cricket bat


The brian lara gray nicolls scoop autographed cricket bat is certainly something i wish i had when i was a young boy. I loved to watch brian lara play. As i am as left handed batsman as he is, i was always glued to the TV whenever the west indies were on TV. He was my childhood hero when i was a teenager. I remember going to many cricket matches in south africa when the boys from the Caribbean came to town. I had the wonderful pleasure of getting a number of these cricket bats signed when i met Brian at the recent 20/20 world cup.
Im sure this will be a wonderful cricket bat after you put some oil on it and knock it in however i would suggest this is more for a collector or someone who understands what a great contribution to cricket brian lara has given us. If you would like some more information or pictures feel free to give me a call.

adidas twenty 2 yard cricket shoes


The adidas twenty 2 yard cricket shoes are some of the more expensive shoes on the market in the US at the  moment. We only have a few pairs left at www.cricketstoreonline.com so if you are interested please contact us soon. Here is a short video review of the cricket shoes / spikes.

So one thing i noted about these cricket shoes when i was handling them, is that they are really light. The clima cool system in the tongue is all pretty cool as it helps the top of your foot keep cool with some oversized air holes. The sides of the adidas twenty 2 yard cricket shoes have ample mesh areas to allow air flow as well. These particular cricket shoes are batting spikes, meaning that there are only spikes in the front portion of the shoe, as when you are batting and running you are mainly standing on your toes or mid-foot region. The box also comes with a set of replacement spikes incase they fall out .
