[ MY FIRST POST - BE NICE ]

As another Rugby season approaches, some of us will be looking for a new pair of boots. Having researched for great club level rugby boots for FORWARDS, I stumbled across the Mizuno Waitangi PS SG Rugby Boots. Most online shops are selling them for £50-70 but MandM direct are doing us all a favour and discounted them big time.

DETAILS

The Waitangi Rugby Boots are constructed from the finest Primeskin Leather, luxurious feel as the stitch lines in the upper offer a secure fit and an enhanced sense of touch against your foot.

To minimise the weight shoe, whilst still adding comfort and durability is engineered from the Graded Pebax Sole plate, offering enhanced flexibility and durability to the wearer. The Waitangi adds Diagonal flex grooves and a dual density insole board for enhanced forefoot flexibility and traction in scrum movements. The Plate extends into the heel crash pad, which supports the foot during sharp turns, gait cycle etc. Mizuno added the classic moulded multi-stud pattern to the sole, leading to excellent foot holding and comfort, the studs themselves are 6 specifically positioned PU Studs that reduce pressure typically received by the foot.

FEATURES

Primeskin Leather - Soft quilted leather gives a luxurious snug feel during the game.

Graded Pebax Sole Plate - Enhances durability and flexibility for the wearer.

Studs - 6 Individually placed studs to reduce pressure typically received on the body.

Sockliner - Removable molded sockliner.

Stud formation is different on rugby boot, and the studs themselves are larger than football studs. I would personally advise having footy for footy, and rugby for rugby (due to how they are manufactured for the specifics of each sport)......however if money is a factor and you play both sports, I was happy with rugby boots for both sports (I played much more rugby than footy).

There's not too much difference in my opinion (some rugby boots offer slightly more protection). All rugby boots must have British Kitemark studs (they won't get sharp edges once they start to wear down). Football boots generally have studs that soon turn into 'razors' once worn on a non-grassy surface.

Most rugby boots have an 8 stud configuration: 6 on the front part of the foot, 2 at the heel (mainly for the forwards as this gives more purchase while scrummaging); football boots are 4 at front, 2 at heel.

I've played rugby in football boots and football in rugby boots before!! Just don't wear the forwards mid- or high ankle boots for football unless you want to look like a player from the 1920s!!

It would be whatever feels comfortable. During the drier months, players will opt for football boots and use rugby boots for wetter/muddier times (autumn/winter) although given the weather in the UK, rugby players may opt for these all season.

Hope this helps.

Hi Ralph,

It all depends on what level you are playing at, what surface you're playing on and if you're bothered by performance. I have found rugby boots slightly heavier and give more protection, whereas some football boots provide more ball control on the side of the boot.
I have football boots which I use during the Firm Ground season and I have rugby boots with bigger studs during the wetter/ muddier months.
Hope that is of some help
