Brand new to 2014, Adidas Cricket has released its Adidas adiPower Vector Bowling Boots. After years of research and consultations with England fast bowler James Anderson, Adidas Cricket has come up with a truly remarkable shoe.
Adidas Cricket’s main aim in designing its adiPower Vector bowling boots was to prevent the main injuries associated with fast bowling. This is done in two major ways: the grid system on the sole of the boot and the single spike on the heel. Adidas Cricket’s new grid system on the sole makes the boot much lighter and more stable.
The single spike on the bottom of the Adidas Cricket adiPower Vector bowling boots is specifically in place for injury prevention, both long-term and short-term. Adidas Cricket and James Anderson found that many injuries to the knee and ankle come from turning in when landing. Adidas Cricket’s single spike on the bottom of the adiPower Vector boot helps stabilize the knee and ankle when landing, which lowers the chance of injury.
The Adidas Cricket adiPower Vector bowling boots are made with a TPU outsole to keep them lightweight, as well as an EVA midsole with Adiprene in the heel to keep them comfortable. Adidas Cricket’s adiPower Vector bowling boots are made with both a strong heel and a strong toe for added support in both areas.
While these Adidas Cricket adiPower Vector bowling boots were designed with bowling in mind and are currently being used by England fast bowler Jimmy Anderson, they’re versatile and lightweight enough to wear for batting and fielding as well.
