Astro and 3G rugby trainers have evolved considerably in recent years, often utilising the same innovations and technological advancements found in their soft ground equivalents to create an all-round high performance product.
To protect rugby pitches and provide an all-weather solution, many professional and amateur teams have opted to train on artificial surfaces.
Within the collection of Lovell Rugby Artificial Rugby Trainers, users will find all the leading brands represented with an array of styles and features, suitable for all abilities and sizes, from infant through to adult. Adidas, Nike, Puma, Hummel, Mizuno, Umbro and Valsport each bring their own differentials to the game with significant focus on comfort and stability for use on the often unforgiving artificial surface.
Traditionally artificial rugby trainers are characterised by their sole, a moulded one-piece design with different patterns depending on the brand. Just like a rugby boot, each brand showcases their own innovative design aimed at improving player traction for enhanced speed, maneuverability and general performance. Much of this is simply down to preference as it is the outer layer materials which are making significant overhauls to create lighter and more flexible rugby trainers for greater comfort. The Nike Mercurial Glide TF rugby trainers offer soft, supple teijin synthetic leather for supreme ball feel with added Vapor Traction whereas the Adidas Mundial Team Astro benefits from super soft kangaroo leather for unrivaled comfort. Likewise the Mizuno Ignitus AS rugby trainer features a speed panel for lethal precision compared to the Puma Esito Final kids rugby trainer which is a classic imitation of the popular Puma King model.
As part of this extensive collection of rugby trainers, the Adidas F10 TRX FG series offers a slightly different approach by incorporating moulded blades onto their footwear. This is aimed at enhancing the player experience by improving traction and comfort across a firm playing surface, through the use of Adidas's own TPU outsole plate with a modified Traxion stud layout.
Many artificial rugby trainers are now also multi-purpose, ideal for indoor play due to their non-marking soles making them a versatile choice for any firm surface. Whatever your choice though, comfort should be the most important factor when considering any artificial rugby trainers as with good care they will form an essential part of your footwear armory.
