Kids Rugby Boots
Whether your child plays rugby for fun or are on the school team, rugby boots will give them protection and confidence. The studs on the outsoles provide grip to produce greater traction and performance, while the soft synthetic upper will add protection and increase stability.
Are soccer boots the same as rugby boots?
Generally, rugby boots are designed around power and stability, with soccer boots being made for speed, accuracy and agility. Rugby boots will be heavier and wider, with a raised heel and 10 spikes on the bottom as opposed to 16 on soccer boots.
The kids football boots at Little Rookie are suitable for every code, whether it be rugby, rugby league, soccer or AFL. Our flexible ground boots provide high-speed traction on firm ground, hard ground and artificial grass.
Firm Ground vs. Soft Ground Boots?
Firm ground boots are the most popular and are used on dry, natural grass. They provide great balance and are lightweight.
On the other hand, soft ground boots are for use on muddy fields and provide better traction.
Lace vs. Velcro Boots
Lace-up boots can improve comfort and fit by letting your child adjust how tight they want the shoe to be. This makes them ideal for wide, narrow or flat feet as they make the foot feel more secure.
Increasingly popular, Velcro boots are easier for kids to put on and take off, especially for kids who may not quite have learned to tie laces yet. Velcro is also beneficial as kids may fall and hurt themselves if their laces have come undone or their boot has come loose. The Velcro also allows your child to easily tighten the shoe themselves.
