Rugby Boots For Women: 5 Cheap Unisex Pairs That Could Improve Your Game
Cheap rugby boots are very rarely good quality in my experience
And I don’t just recommend any old rubbish
So these Rugby Boots For Women are not going to break the bank
And they will also make you stand out from the team while you’re on the field
Who needs to spend hundreds on something that is going to get a battering on the rugby pitch
When you can get one of the beauties that are below in the list I have made up for you
Can Women Play Rugby?
Of course, ladies can play rugby and probably can play better than the average male rugby player!
You probably think they play on a smaller pitch (which they don’t)
And complain about breaking nails all the time
But let me tell you,
I have seen my fair share of ladies rugby matches and I wouldn’t want to go up against any of them!
They can be brutal!
Just take a look at this video of these big hits from women’s rugby
Before looking at rugby boots for ladies lets have a look at where it all started, shall we?
Ladies rugby has been around nearly as long as men’s rugby
With the first ever woman called Emily Valentine who played a game for her brother’s school team
At Portora Royal School in Enniskillen, Ireland in 1887 and scored a try!!
However, it wasn’t December 16th, 1917 that documentation was first recorded
When two ladies teams from Cardiff and Newport played at the Cardiff Arms Park (my home city) where Cardiff won 6 – 0
There is evidence of ladies teams from New Zealand, Australia, and France in the 1920s and 30s until WW2 started
But the roles of women really changed back then.
Edinburgh University had the first ever recorded ladies rugby union team in 1962
We Are All Equal!
Ladies rugby has come a long way since it officially started and is increasingly getting as popular as men’s rugby creating debates all over the world…..
SHOULD WOMEN BE ALLOWED TO PLAY IN THE SAME TEAM AS MEN?
I personally don’t think they couldn’t I just think they shouldn’t
For the fact that from what I have seen is that male rugby players are much more physically stronger than the women rugby players
What do you think?
Rugby Boots For Women Swing Both Ways
Most rugby boots are UNISEX now
But you can get rugby boots just for ladies not that you could tell the difference though
It’s not like they come with a mirror attached to the sole of them or a secret compartment that you can hide blusher and eyeshadow!
Even though there are plenty of rugby boots for women out there I want to show you some unisex boots which I think are far better

That was until I found these pretty awesome boots made by them
I know these are for football
But I won’t tell anyone if you don’t
They are very sturdy, but very comfortable at the same time
I have noticed with the moulded studs that you can’t feel them digging into the bottom of your feet
