There appears to be a large influx of X Blades boots coming in to the UK at present and they are going straight on to the feet of some of the leading stars in the Super League. In last weekends pre-season match between Hull FC and Castleford Tigers, youngster Daryl Clark sported the new Green & Lime Wild Thing colourway. The Tigers hooker is one of the most exciting talents in Super League at present and there are big expectations of him this season as he looks to break in to the international set-up.
The brand originated in Australia and this is where the brand was built. They have some of the biggest names in Australian rugby league on their Wild Thing roster, including Lote Tuqiri and Akuila Uate.
Created from a microfibre and TPU reinforced mesh upper, the Wild Things effortlessly fuses support and stability with comfort and fit across the whole foot. A traditional central lacing system further enhances the overall fit whilst the cushioned heel allows them to be broken in easily.
With player performance and comfort paramount, X Blades have gone about creating a lightweight, flexible and water resistant inner board. This feature may not be visible but you will certainly feel the benefits when stepping out onto the rugby field.
Designed to make light work of natural firm surfaces, the Wild Thing employs strategically positioned moulded blades across the forefoot and heel. The elite bionic sole system is made from lightweight TPU with the blades graduated so as to reduce posterior lower limb muscle strain. A subtle feature which can make all the difference in your game.
Not missing the opportunity to miss out on any further innovation, the Wild Thing includes a Speed Ortholite Innersole which absorbs pressure during acceleration while offering excellent shape retention.
Undoubtedly unique in their design, the Wild Thing will merge into its’ natural rugby environment with a green and lime animal print pattern sported across the whole rugby boot.
