Soft Ground Rugby Boots
Soft Ground rugby boots are boots that feature screw-in metal studs that are most suitable for soft natural grass pitches. These studs are replaceable if they fall out and can be changed to shorter or longer studs depending on the current ground conditions. Muddier pitches need longer studs!
We are often asked what the difference is between SG and FG rugby boots by our customers. Well, the explanation couldn't be simpler. SG stands for soft ground and FG stands for firm ground rugby boots.
Soft ground rugby boots are a type of rugby boot that is specifically designed for use on soft, wet, or muddy playing surfaces. They typically have longer and deeper studs or cleats on the sole, which provide better traction and grip on slippery surfaces.
They help to prevent the foot from slipping during quick changes of direction or when pushing in scrums, mauls, or rucks. The additional grip and stability provided by the boots can also help to reduce the risk of injury, as players are less likely to twist or sprain their ankles when running or changing direction on a soft or muddy field.
We stock boots from the game's big players - Adidas Rugby Boots, Canterbury and Mizuno. All three brands have a great reputation for making innovative and reliable rugby boots.
