Which rugby boots do I buy?

Buying the perfect rugby boots depends on the following factors:

1. Ground quality

2. Size

3. Studs

Ground Quality

Soft

Soft

The perfect boots would need to be equipped for when there has been lots of rainfall and the ground is muddy. Grip is essential so boots with detachable studs are very beneficial. In these conditions, longer studs are perfect. 

Firm / Hardground / TurF

Firm / Hardground / TurF

Ideal for the drier times of year where long studs are no longer necessary and often replaced with shorter studs. Moulded studs can also be worn for extra stability. In extremely dry conditions seen in warmer climates, specialist turf boots would be essential to maintain performance.

Artificial

For artificial or 4G pitches, the most commonly used boots are moulded boots. Shallower studs give stability and grip without causing risk of injury that longer studded boots could cause.

Studs

8 Stud

8 Stud

The increased number of studs is perfect for forward players. These boots will enhance stability, ideal for scrummaging and ensure the player has the strength and power they need.

6 Stud

6 Stud

Ideal rugby boots for backs, these rugby boots provide traction without compromising speed. The 6 stud design allows players to move freely whilst still maintain essential grip on muddy and hard pitches.

6 studs boots can also be incorporated with smaller, fixed studs. Mixed stud boots provide optimum control on the field with added stability. These boots allow the player to maintain their speed but have increased traction when headed into contact.

MSX

Providing perfect stability on firmer ground, these moulded studs preserve a players grip on the field whilst decreasing the chance of injury that longer studs can have on harder surfaces. The mixed stud shape on these boots also aids players when changing direction, pivoting and side stepping.

Size

Gilbert provide a variety of rugby boots for both adult and junior sizes ranging from size 2 – 15*.

*Size ranges vary depending on boot design.
