Frequently Asked Questions

What are soft-ground rugby boots?

Soft-ground rugby boots are specialized footwear designed for playing rugby on soft or muddy surfaces. They have longer and detachable studs that provide better traction and stability on soft ground, preventing slipping and injuries.

How are soft-ground rugby boots different from firm-ground boots?

Soft-ground rugby boots have longer and often detachable studs, which penetrate the soft ground and provide more grip compared to firm-ground boots. Firm-ground boots, on the other hand, have shorter, non-detachable studs suitable for dry or slightly wet pitches.

Can soft-ground rugby boots be used on firm ground?

Soft-ground rugby boots are not ideal for firm ground as the longer studs can cause discomfort and increase the risk of injury. It is best to use them only on soft, muddy, or wet playing surfaces.

Can the studs on soft-ground rugby boots be replaced?

Yes, most soft-ground rugby boots come with replaceable studs. This allows players to adjust the length of the studs based on the specific playing conditions, ensuring optimal grip and performance.

How do I clean and maintain soft-ground rugby boots?

To clean soft-ground rugby boots, remove excess mud and dirt after each use. Use a soft brush or cloth to clean the studs and the upper part of the boot. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials, as they can damage the boots. Store them in a cool, dry place to prevent mold growth.

Can soft-ground rugby boots be used for rugby training on artificial turf?

Soft-ground rugby boots are not suitable for artificial turf as the longer studs can damage the artificial surface and affect traction. For artificial turf, it's recommended to use turf or artificial grass-specific boots designed with shorter, rubber studs.
