Five Tips for Buying Rugby Cleats

Rugby cleats are worn to provide traction while playing rugby. You will need to consider a few things before buying a pair of these cleats. Some of these include material, sole, and stud length. This article will...

Material

One of the first things to consider when buying rugby cleats is the material. You can buy a pair of cleats that are made from real or synthetic leather. It's best to choose leather rugby cleats over the synthetic variety as they are more breathable and durable. Leather cleats will also be more comfortable.

Sole

One of the next things you will need to consider when buying rugby cleats is the sole. The soles will either be detachable or molded. Detachable soles will allow you to replace the studs in the cleats. These rugby cleats can effectively be used on different surfaces. Molded soles are easier to maintain, so they are ideal for beginners.

Stud Length

You will also need to consider stud length when buying rugby cleats. If you mainly play on hard ground, then it's best to use shorter studs. Shorter studs will reduce the strain on your joints and reduce ground resistance. Rugby cleats that have long studs are suitable for playing on soft and wet surfaces. They will give you better grip on these surfaces.

Ankle

One of the next things to think about when buying rugby cleats is the ankle. You will have to determine how you want the ankle of the cleat to be cut. Rugby cleats that have higher cut ankles will provide better protection from ankle injuries. They will also provide better support. Lower cut ankles will offer you more flexibility.

Stiffness

One of the final things to consider when buying rugby cleats is stiffness. Cleats that are stiff will give you a better foothold on the ground. However, you should avoid rugby cleats that are too stiff. You should look for a pair that is slightly flexible in the support areas.

These are a few things to consider when buying rugby cleats. If you mainly play on hard ground, then you should get a pair that has shorter studs. You should also look to buy a pair of rugby cleats that are made from real leather instead of the synthetic variety. These real leather cleats are more breathable and durable. If you want more protection from ankle injuries, then make sure you buy a pair with higher cut ankles.
