The cricket shoe has evolved into something resembling a trainer more and more.
The most important things to look for in a cricket boot are comfort and grip, not what it looks like.

You can choose your shoe depending on the type of surface you play on.
Spiked shoes are good for playing on soft ground, while pimpled rubber soles are better for hard ground.
You can also get a combination of both spikes and pimples.
Batters usually prefer shoes with spikes at the front for grip and rubber-treaded heels.
Fast bowlers usually have shoes with spikes at the front and back with extra support around the ankle.
Don't worry if you think you need two pairs of shoes if you are an all-rounder - one set of cricket shoes is more than enough.
But choose wisely - former England captain Mike Atherton slipped and fell in mid-pitch while batting in half-spikes at Lord's in 1993 and was run out... for 99.
