Our Cricketing Heritage

PAYNTR™ was created by ex-professional cricketer David Edward Paynter and the great-grandson of England Ashes Legend Eddie Paynter. Cricket is steeped in the family heritage.

Eddie Paynter, Dave’s great-grandad was pivotal in England regaining the infamous 1932/33 “Bodyline” Ashes Series.

Eddie helped to turn the series on its head, guiding England to victory, despite a severe bout of tonsillitis. In the fourth test at The Gabba, with England struggling in the 1st innings, he discharged himself from hospital, took a few aspirins, washed down with a glass of champagne and hit 83 not out. In the 2nd innings, Eddie hit the winning runs, helping England retain the Ashes and was subsequently the first person to win a test and Ashes series by hitting a six.

To this day, Eddie has the 2nd highest all-time highest test batting average for an Englishman (59.23), 7th highest in the world. He averaged 84.42 against Australia, a feat which no other Englishman has replicated with a 500-run cut-off.

The Story Behind PAYNTR

Frustrated by the current state of cricket footwear, Dave set out on a mission to create a running-style shoe built to withstand the stresses of cricket, with comfort and style in mind, something he felt was not currently being delivered in the current market.

“I used to get trainers spiked as a player and a lot of other players did too, there was an obvious trend that players just didn’t like what was out there. Everyone wants to look good, whether you’re on a night out or you’re playing cricket - footwear defines a person”
David Paynter, PAYNTR™ Founder

After working on it for 18 months, many trips back and forth to China, funded with his own life savings, Dave’s hard work and true Yorkshire grit came to fruition.
