Bringing decades of running expertise to the world of cricket, New Balance spikes are made for movement. That means ample support, stability, and cushioning for bowlers, alongside lightweight comfort and springy agility for batters. But which shoe’s best for what? Let’s take a look.

Best Shoe for Batters: New Balance CK10 Cricket Shoe

Always among the bestselling cricket shoes, the CK10 has been refined over the years to provide ultimate comfort during long spells at the crease. The latest generations feature mesh throughout almost the entire upper, maintaining breathability to keep your feet fresh. Underfoot, REVlite cushioning and a 7-4 spike setup combine for quick movement, enabling fast footwork as you adjust to play shots and sprint between the stumps. That combo makes the CK10 ideal for fielding too, helping you get into position for catches and cover the ground to prevent boundaries.

Best Shoe for Bowlers: New Balance CK4040 Cricket Shoe

Designed specifically for bowling, the CK4040 is aimed primarily at pace bowlers, with the midfoot strap helping to stop your feet shifting in the shoe over time, and the FuelCell foam underfoot reducing impact forces as you land. Like most pace bowling spikes, it’s made from highly resilient materials to guard against damage from scuffing. FuelCell is what makes the shoe stand out, though – it’s extremely efficient energy-wise and you can really feel the difference when you get into your later overs.

Best Shoe for All-Rounders: New Balance CK4030 Cricket Shoe

Offering a balance of comfort and durability, the CK4030 is a traditional cricket spike with the added bonus of the latest cushioning technology. Like the 4040, it’s equipped with FuelCell foam in the midsole to reduce fatigue and absorb any hard impacts with the ground. At the rear, handy pull loops help you get the shoe on, while the higher collar provides security and stability once you’re in. You can’t go wrong with the 4030 – it stands up equally well to batting, bowling, fielding, and keeping, and is a great choice if you want a single pair of shoes to wear all the time.

Best Budget Shoe: New Balance CK4020 Cricket Shoe

We say budget, but the CK4020 is a fully fledged cricket shoe with a comfortable, perforated upper and the same impact-absorbing FuelCell foam seen in the rest of the 40 lineup. It’s just a turf shoe rather than a spike, so comes in at a more wallet-friendly price point. Combined with a durable overall construction, the pimpled rubber outsole makes it perfect for training or nets practice, making sure you keep your footing without ruining the surface.
