New Balance has certainly exploded onto the cricket equipment market with a range of truly high quality cricket bats. Long before that they were making cricket boots and their cricket boots are still of the highest quality. After all, New Balance is and athletics company that made their name making premium athletic shoes and their cricket shoes are definitely no different.
The New Balance CK10 cricket shoe is possibly the best cricket shoe on the market. Much thought has gone into the design of these cricket boots to give cricketers, whether batsmen or bowlers or in the field absolute control, balance and stability.
In terms of comfort, the CK10 is the first “minimal” cricket shoe. This is truly a shoe and not a cricket boot. The shoe offers the same amount of ankle support as a boot would but it comes with the bonus of not being as weighty or as bulky as cricket boots can sometimes be. The comfort is extended to the mid-sole part of the New Balance CK10 cricket shoes where it has been fitted with New Balance’s renowned REVlite system. The REVlite offers a lightweight feel for the fielders that will be sending long hours on their feet in the field.
Cricketers know how essential balance and control are when it comes to their cricket shoes. The New Balance CK10 cricket shoes have a 4mm drop, New Balance have done this to help the cricketers achieve better proprioception which increases balance and control.
The toe has been reinforced to ensure that it does not wear thin in the area that is put under a lot of stress by the bowlers as they land to deliver the ball and the follow through.
These boots are endorsed by the many players who use New Balance cricket equipment. One of the players to be seen enjoying the use of the New Balance CK10’s is Australia’s Aaron Finch.
