Top 5 Boots

Not all boots do the same job and different boots are needed depending on your position. Rather than trying to identify the five best boots overall on rugbystore.co.uk we decided on 5 categories and picked the best boots within those categories.

Those categories are: the best boots made for backs (positions 9-15), the best boots for forwards (positions 1-8), the best boots for those taking the all important penalties and other kicks, the best all rounder boots available at rugbystore.co.uk for non-specialists and finally the best pair of boots for under £50 for those on a budget. Picking one pair of boots for each of these categories is no easy task but in our Top 5 you'll find the boots that excel in their field.
