Lovell Rugby Reviews the Adidas adiZero RS7 II Pro Rugby Boots

Latest Rugby News from Lovell Rugby

Adidas have used the start of this seasons Heineken Cup to introduce all three of their new boots. There is one, however, that is standing out on the field due to its striking and eye catching colourway.

The RS7 was initially launched off the back of the success of the adiZero football boot. It was the first Adidas rugby specific boot which was leightweight which meant it allowed players to maximise their speed. Since the original Radient Red and Intense Green colourways, Adidas used the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand to promote the Orange/Blue and White/Red colourways. All four of these boots were part of the RS7 I range.

The new Prime Blue and Electricity RS7 II is a modified version of the boot and is offering extra features that the first incarnation did not have. Charlie Sharples of Gloucester along with Scarlets pair Sean Lamont and George North have all been seen wearing the new boot in recent weeks.

The RS7 has a ’Sprint Skin Upper’ which is stronger than other synthetics making the boot lighter, softer and more durable. The ‘Sprint Skin’ has been reinforced making it stronger than its football counterpart. Adidas have used a sprint frame for the RS7 Pro boot which is actually 50% lighter than all other regular TPU outsoles.

The heel of the boot has a ’3D Puff Print’ on the inner lining of the heel to help prevent slippage. This is ideal for players looking for instant acceleration from a standing start. This also makes the boot easy to break in so that you can get a good feel for the boots from the first wear.

Permanent midfoot support gives greater stabilty and also helps to prevent injury through its lightweight hollow core construction. The striking zone of the boot features a synthetic print to help improve control when striking the ball, especially in wet conditions.

On the base of the boot is a mixed sole plate using the rounded aluminium screw-in studs and moulded studs. This has been added for maximum traxion without increasing the weight of the boot. The mixture of studs means that the boots are suitable for all weather and pitch conditions.

Adidas have also installed the miCoach technology in to the boot which give you the opportunity to measures time, distance, speed, speed zones and number of sprints during training or a match. This can then be downloaded on to a PC or iPhone application to be analysed by coaches or between team mates. The miCoach speedpod sensors are not included with the boots however can be purchased separately through ourselves.

    Thanks for the reviews. I always look here for the new boot news, it’s about time we rugby players had some variety. Just out of interest, what is the third boot? I think I’ve seen some of the back row forwards like Alun Wyn Jones wearing them, will you be doing their review next?

  2. james bromley says:

    hi i really want to get these boots but can i but larger studs in them like normal rugby studs as i play flanker sometimes and our pitch is really claggy its okay to have little studs when i play as a back but not a forward

  3. Patrick Harrison says:

    Hi there, i am a back but i am not a fan of all the fancy colours, will they be doing any other simple colours like black or dark blue? also… are there any other boots that will have the miCOACH inserted?

    Thank you so much for your time

  11. Ahmad Kamal says:

    Are the adizero RS7 boots suitable for relatively wide feet?

    • Jack says:

      Hi Ahmad
      The RS7s are not suitable for wide feet. We would suggest the Adidas Predators for wider fitting feet.
      Thanks

  14. Jeremy says:

    Hey,

    In one of the pictures it looked like there were nylon studs instead of the aluminum. Where can you buy those?

    • Jack says:

      Hi Jeremy
      These boots are only available in SG. Adidas have not made replacement nylon studs available for these boots.
      Thanks

  15. Brett Woods says:

  16. Brett Woods says:

    will there ever be a way to customize colors for the RS7 boots?

    • Jack says:

      Hi Brett
      Adidas have not mentioned making the boots available in custom colourways.
      Thanks

  17. Matt says:

    Hi

    Will there be new adidas rs7 pro II’s being released and if so when around?

    Thanks

  18. Luke says:

    would these boots be suitable for a loose forward on a average-quite soft pitch or does it lack the traction and ankle support required for the scrum ?

    • Jack says:

      Hi Luke
      The RS7 II boots are not really suitable for a loose forward as they do not offer as much protection as say the Adidas R15 II.
      Thanks

  19. will says:

    when are new sizes coming in as i need some for new season?

  20. Shelagh says:

    Hi Am I right in thinking that the white RS7 with red stripes has been discontinued? I am trying to find one in size 11 and a half. Also is there any other difference between the old and the new style boot or is it just the micoach compatibility?
    Thanks
    Shelagh

    • Jack says:

      Hi Shelagh
      The white/red colourway has now been discontinued. The main changes with the RS7 II is that they are slightly lighter and have miCoach capabilities.
      Thanks
