Gilbert Men's Sidestep Barbarian Mid Rugby Cleat
Solid Soft Ground Boots
I have used Canterbury boots since I started playing, but they discontinued the boots I have worn and mine were completely falling apart. I also like the mid/high boots for ankle support, and soft ground spikes for scurmming down. I feel like these are a must for a prop like myself.
I wear a size 12 and these boots were fairly true to size. They actually run a little big, but I wear and ankle brace and 2 pairs of socks so they fit great after that. The footbed is nice and wide unlike the Adidas boots I tried. They run a little long, but nothing to worry about. The cleats seem to be made well and are much lighter than my Canterbury boots.
My only complaint is that they don't breathe well at all. I took them off after a game last weekand and my feet were incredibly sweaty. I hope it doesn't lead to major blister problems, but we'll see.
Overall I recommend them.
