Adidas have done it again. The 2018 Dual Instinct collection includes some stunning rugby boots, with the Shock Yellow colourway really standing out. In this blog, we will be taking a look at the Malice range, rugby boots designed for the backs. So if you're a scrum half, stand off, centre, wing or full back, and in the market for a new pair of boots to see you through this season, read on...
The Predator Malice is the pick of the punch, a soft ground boot for the playmaker in the side, the one who is able to see the whole picture. Incredibly lightweight, thesse boots have a raised heel to ensure you're always on your toes. The off-centre laces leave more space at the top of the upper for pinpoint kicking, while a textured forefoot coating provides the grip you need for game-changing ball control. Worn by the likes of Racing 92 and Scotland star Finn Russell and All Blacks fly half Beauden Barrett, it's a must-have for 10s around the world.
Also in the range is the Malice SG, which is available in both Shock Yellow and Core Black, and is aesthetically similar to the Predator, but at a fraction of the cost. Previous versions of this boot have been amongst the best selling boots at First XV Rugbystuff.com over the last two seasons, and we see no reason why it won't be the same again!
For the quickest players on the park - the Predator Flare. The foot-hugging upper on this boot locks you down for stability at speed, giving players such as Anthony Watson and Rieko Ioane the confidence to perform on the biggest of stages. So if you're in need of a replacement pair of boots to keep you flying up the wing, you can't go wrong with these!
