Re-designed for a lighter touch to boldly rule the game, when it comes to setting the pace and taking charge then you're still in complete control with adidas' Ace 16.1 FG/AG Leather Rugby Boots.
For purists who prefer the supple feel of kangaroo leather across the upper, the Ace 16.1 is a lesson in sublime comfort and a supremely natural feel. With the absence of a Control Web, there's the traditional stitching of leather boots while the rear is treated to leather-like synthetics for increased stability and less water uptake.
Of course all these features count for nothing if the comfort isn't there but rest assured there's plenty of that to look after your feet. A rather plush Nubuck-touch, heel lining significantly increases comfort while the lacing has moved back to a traditional central position that still leaves plenty of room on the instep to make a sweet connection with.
New Sole Design
One aspect that's been given a significant overhaul is that of the natural firm/artificial ground sole plate. Previously it was all about putting more studs on the ball but for the Ace 16.1 there's considerably less in stud numbers (eleven) for a streamlined design that plays a major part in reducing the overall weight and even includes an arch through the midfoot for increased stability. This time all the moulded, conical studs are the same size so you're light on your feet to evade tackles and race past opponents.
This boot weighs 197g (UK 8).
Your boots are well looked after as a drawcord boot bag is also included.
