The Adidas AdiZero has possibly been one of the most talked about football boots of all time. Recently the AdiZero got a make over as well as some weight loss as Adidas released the new AdiZero and AdiZero Prime. That was followed up by the AdiZero’s American Football cousin – the AdiZero 5 Star. Now Adidas have released its Rugby Union cousin – the RS7.
The RS7 takes all the elements that made the AdiZero such a success in soccer but added some rugby specific extras. It is the lightest rugby boot on the market and boost technology such as:
- Upper: SPRINTSKIN crafted upper. SPRINTSKIN is a revolutionary single-layer synthetic for that incredible wear and reduced weight. This, along with TPU support bands, sprint frame exchangeable screw-in studs and aggressive colors, will dominate the rugby pitch.
- Specs: Synthetic print added to medial forefoot is to increase control when kicking. The TPU bottom frameframe reinforces the upper and prevents abrasion in the kicking area. Inlay is crafted with the ultralight sockliner in the shoe.
- Outsole: A new Traxion stud shape for maximum acceleration and speed on soft and wet surfaces. Mix of molded Traxion studs and exchangeable aluminum studs. The sprint frame construction uses geometrical learnings and a new stud shape to offer the perfect balance between light weight and stability.
The RS7 was released in two colourways; Radiant Red/White and Intense Green/White. We think they look great despite being just a single color. We look forward to seeing what colourways Adidas release in the future.
