Rugby is all about raw power and that is exactly what the Puma Powercat 3.12 SG H8 Rugby Boot delivers in abundance. The design of the boot is based around the Puma Powercat football boots, however the 8 stud sole plate, superior fit and a mixed leather upper all contribute to one of Puma’s most impressive rugby boots yet.
With the scrum becoming such a decisive area of the game, it is important for players to select a boot that offers maximum grip during the wet winter months so that they can help their side gain the upper hand on the opposition and this is something that the Puma H8 rugby boots offer. The boots are a popular choice amongst front row forwards and have been worn by the likes of Dylan Hartley (Northampton Saints and England), Tendai Mtawarira (Sharks and South Africa) and Gurthro Steenkamp (Toulouse and South Africa).
The upper part of the boot comprises of a mixture of leather and synthetics for optimum comfort, whilst underneath a Duoflex core provides stability and support for powerful play from heel to toe. The inside of the heel is padded which enhances the comfort and fit of the boots.
Featuring an off-centre lacing system, this allows for a larger clean surface area to strike the ball with increasing power and accuracy. This style of lacing also provides superior fit and comfort generating more confidence in your performance. The inside of tongue is padded to prevent the laces from rubbing across your foot.
For optimum traction, the Powercat 3.12 features an eight stud configuration which perfectly suits soft natural conditions and ideal for forwards looking to assert power into their play. Around each stud, the casings have been re-enforced with an additional piece of plastic to ensure that the wearer has a firm platform during scrums.
For any player who likes to make an impression on the rugby field, the white, red and blue colourway creates a distinct look that can only enhance your performance. The Puma logo features on either side of the boot and also on the tongue
