If you are looking for a trusted pair of rugby boots, made for specifically for rugby then look no further than the classic Gilbert Sidestep. Rugby players across world rugby have enjoyed playing in different Gilbert sidestep boots for many years, so when the new season comes around we look to refresh, not re-invent. New colours, updated designs, improved technology – same trusted name, same trusted boot.
Not many rugby boots have had the honour of playing on rugby pitches across the globe for over a decade – the Gilbert sidestep has. Our much loved, classic rugby boot has been trusted by rugby players for a long time, we hope they bring you as much fun, laughter and enjoyment as they have others.
A durable rugby boot with classic design, the latest sidestep boot, VX 10, goes right back to its roots. Available in classic Black and White or a modernised White/Black/Blue, we have kept the same trusted outsole – available again in an 8 stud (adult) for soft ground conditions, MSX Moulded for hard ground or firm pitch conditions and 6 stud for junior rugby players.
Inside the boot, we have introduced a rigid TPU board for improved power transfer with an added flex point in the forefoot. We have kept the preformed EVA footbed which offers the cushioning you need, for comfort when you need it. The footbed is also completely removable to make way for personalised insoles, if required.
Both the 8 stud adult and 6 stud junior versions welcome our standard aluminium studs, available in 15mm, 18mm or 21mm length and all Gilbert Rugby studs are certified ‘rugby safe’.
