    Funnily enough, these were one of the boots that interested me originally, and why I mentioned they don't need to be rugby boots.

    If it's been around "for ages" it must be doing something right.

    "Light leather" doesn't necessarily mean poor quality. In my prime I had a pair of Adidas Cap boots - the one with the original single front toe stud. Probably the best pair of rugby boots I've ever owned - sadly no longer made.

    I would never wear anything apart form Asics Gel.

    Had lots of heel and calf problems which all stopped when I switched to Asics Gel.

    Very comfy and I have never paid full price, always find a bargain somewhere on the net. I buy a new pair every season to maintain the sole rigidity.

    I have two boots: One is like Phil E's - Asics Gel, every time.

    The other, for hot dry hard is trail runners. Oh my Lord, my feet love me.

    What brand of trail runners? Almost all of my games are in hot weather on turf or rock hard natural grass.
