    Seriously, who cares? IRB referees all around the world have red, blue, white or green boots. It's just the way the world is going. If an assessor is picking me up on the colour of my boots then I have had a great day at the office.

    Correct observation. It's to dazzle the wingers when I beat them to the try line

    Then the Assessor who assesses that Assessor should mark him down for being unnecessarily Tory !
    Unless I'm mistaken(?) there are no IRB 'referee attire' insistences??

    A player could wear 'multicoloured' Mitts Tights Headscarf or headguard, which I think makes boot colour irrelevant.

    PS.. I recently watched a Senior Society Officer refereeing a L7 match wearing White trainers.

    I have switched to innov-8 only. they make a number of different styles of shoes (I carry 3) with varying lengths of molded cleats, are fully flexible like a running shoe and are light. losing 50lbs and switching to these boots = no niggles or recurring injuries.

    this is my main go to shoe: http://www.inov-8.com/new/Global/Pro...A=Trail&G=Male
