If you’re looking for a boot that feels like a second skin, then the new Under Armour ClutchFit Rugby Boots are ideal for you. Created with a performance microfibre upper that offers two-way stretch capabilities, this works alongside the asymmetrical lace system to provide an unprecedented contoured fit and feel across the foot.
The exceptional fit and feel doesn’t stop there. The addition of an external heel counter aims to lock your foot in to the boot while the 4D footbed moulds to the shape of your foot. The Micro G cushioning delivers light, ultra-responsive, low-to-the-ground performance for stability & comfort.
The boots have already become a popular choice with British & Irish Lion Jamie Roberts who was sporting the latest silo during Wales’ summer tour of South Africa. Other players to have been spotted sporting the new boot include Roberts’ international team mates Taulupe Faletau and Dan Lydiate while down in Australia, Nick ‘The Honey Badger’ Cummins has ditched his Asics for a pair of ClutchFit Force’s.
Across the upper, a rubberised 3D printed layer has been applied that is designed to improve touch in any conditions. The asymmetrical lacing also allows for there to be a greater striking area on the boot.
The plate design along the outsole works with your foot’s natural movement to enhance traction without losing support. The boots give you support when you need it and mobility when you want it.
The four players mentioned have all opted for the Electric Blue/Academy/High Viz Yellow colourway although they also come in a White/Black/High Viz Yellow as shown above. The ClutchFit Force not only looks the business but also has the performance and features to match as part of the Under Armour collection.
