The Rugby World Cup starts in mid-September here in England so it’s no great surprise that the great and the good of the sportswear world will be releasing some new ranges. With that in mind, adidas has announced the Electric Boot Range – four different models, each specifically designed for optimum performance for all positions on the rugby field.
Following more than 40 years of innovation, the range delivers the best in modern technology and rugby footwear. Inspired by adidas’ first rugby boot colourway, each boot is engineered with individual position movements and game requirements front of mind, catering to every facet of play.
The first model in the Electric Boot Range is the all new CrazyQuick Malice – made for the mavericks of the team. With lightweight construction and textured upper, the boot is designed to optimise agility and speed. The unique stud configuration also provides ultimate traction while supporting lateral movements, ideal for an elusive running game.
For the kicking back, the Predator Incurza is the range’s most accurate boot. The soft hybrid upper will keep the foot dry and kicks true in all conditions. The reengineered TRAXION stud configuration offers the player maximum grip and acceleration.
With a unique 5×2 stud configuration and updated forefoot design, the FF80 Pro is specifically engineered for the loose forwards, providing improved stability, comprehensive lateral support and ultimate traction in all areas of play.
Arguably the hardest working boot in the range, the adipower Kakari is designed specifically for the tight-five. The boot is lighter, tougher and stronger than its predecessor, with dual density outsole and RPU construction, providing any forward optimum support in key areas such as rucking, mauling and scrummaging.
Whether the focus is controlling kicks, exploding off the back off the scrum, stepping through the opposition’s backline, or clearing the ruck, the Electric Boot Range supports players’ dedicated needs of play. The adidas Electric Boot Range is available now and prices start from around £100 rising to around £165.
