Latest Rugby News from Lovell Rugby

The latest RS7 II Colourway has been on show on pitch over the past few weeks and has reinforced its status as Adidas’s fastest rugby boot. The new Black/High Energy Orange colourway follows on from the stand out Prime Blue/Electricty RS7 II.

The RS7 was initially launched based on the success of the adiZero football boot. It was the first Adidas rugby specific boot which was lightweight meaning 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 football boots were part of the RS7 I range. Shortly after the tournament, the Prime Blue/Electricity RS7 II was released. The boot was the first of the RS7 range to feature the revolutionary miCoach technology.

Players from the New Zealand Sevens side (including Tim Mikkelson) were initally given the boots to show off on pitch. Since then many high profile internationals including Charlie Sharples and George North have both changed over to the new colourway.

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 rugby 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 incorporated the miCoach technology in to the rugby boot which gives you the opportunity to measures time, distance, speed, and number of sprints during training or a match. This can then be downloaded on to your PC or iPhone to be analysed by coaches or between team mates. The miCoach Speed Cell sensors are not included with the boots but can be purchased separately from Lovell Rugby.

    Hi, i was wondering why the lime/Prime blue version cost over 50 pounds more than the bLACK/HIGH energy orange? Is there a difference in performance? I ask because i saw the lime and prime blue versions being worn by many of the All Blacks in the Bledisloe Cup and i cant decide which one to get. I play inside centre. Also it seems you have run out of the black/high energy ones on the website. Please get back to me, thanks

      Hi Afzaal
      The boots are exactly the same in terms of design and performance but are different colourways. The lab lime/prime blue colourway is the latest boot.
      Thanks

      Hi James
      Unfortunately we are unable to get any more in stock as this particular colourway has now been discontinued by Adidas.
