You’re on the back foot and squaring up to opponents in the scrum. Packing plenty of strength,grip and protection, drive yourself forward in adidas’ adipower Kakari 3.0 SG Rugby Boots. The Kakari 3.0 features a Bravo upper material for a strong, light and secure feel. By including a traditional central lacing system, this further enhances the overall fit and provides the added confidence to perform when you need it most. The subtle 5mm heel raise also allows for a dynamic foot position to aid scrummaging while a rubber pattern around the ankle/heel absorbs impact and protects vulnerable areas as you get stuck in. Grip and stability is assured with the 6 & 2 metal stud configuration standing their ground on soft, natural surfaces. The studs themselves are removable so you can be confident of having the right ones in place to tackle those heavy going, mud filled days. Compatible with adidas’ miCoach chip, which fits discreetly beneath the inner sole, (not included), your boots now have the ability to report back on all your progress in training and match environments. Time, speed, distance, speed zones and number of sprints are all recorded and can be monitored by simply connecting the miCoach chip to your iPod/iPhone. This rugby boot weighs 453g (UK 10.5). Make sure you kit yourself out with a spare set of rugby studs.
