Memories, like colours, may fade over time but that doesn't stop them from being inspiring. Over the years, Adidas has been one of the main household names when it comes to rugby footwear, producing a variety of boots for a number of positions around the field, in an array of designs and colours. This year however, they have taken it back to where it all started – rugby boots in Black, White and Bright Yellow
. Here at First XV, we stock Adidas boots to cover the needs of all players: from tight 5 and loose forwards, to kickers and backs, all positions are sorted for the upcoming rugby season.
Dominate the scrum with the unstoppable force of Adipower. The Kakari – available in both Adipower and Regulate variants - is the ideal boot for those who play in the front or second row, as it is a boot that is built for hard working forwards. Designed with a raised heel for dynamic positioning and a lightweight synthetic BRAVO upper for speed in and out of the ruck, this eight-stud boot will give that extra support and grip needed in scrums and rucks. Tougher, stronger and lighter – perfect for the modern tight 5.
Designed for the rest of the pack, it's time to maraud, ruck and maul! As worn by probably the best back row ever to play the game, All Blacks flanker Richie McCaw, the FF80 features a unique stud layout for optimum traction in the loose.
Take every shot at goal with the lethal accuracy of the Predator. Asymmetrical laces and lace cover make for a larger kicking zone, ensuring as sweet a contact as possible with the ball on every penalty, conversion and clearance kick. Crafted for the kicker - accuracy personified – no need to say more.
Blast past the opposition with the brand new Crazyquick Malice. A replacement for the Adizero RS7, this boot is slightly heavier but features an allover textured print, for additional grip when making contact with the rugby ball. The SPEEDTRAXION high-speed stud alignment allows for maximum acceleration and quick turns on soft, natural surfaces.
Whatever your position, there's an Adidas rugby boot - in a classic colurway - for you at rugbystuff.com this season.
