Object statement
Cricket boots, pair, leather, manufactured by Nike in Indonesia, [1995]
Since the advent of World Series cricket in the late 1970s, many cricketers have become full time professionals. Consequently there has been an expanded market for the manufacture of specialist cricket gear.

This pair of boots will be used with the pair in the collection from the 1930s (95/205/1) to show changes of style.
These shoes were made by Nike, Indonesia in 1995.
