I got these boots three years ago and only just now am I letting them go. They took a little while to break in but they are great quality overall and offer great protection perfect for front five. Over the years I have lost two studs and couldn't replace them as the screw was threaded. I eventually broke through the shoe where the leather meets the logo on the outer side of the boot. The studs that come with the boot wear down quite quickly and you have to be carefull if your removing them from the boot as it's easy to thread them so your key doesn't work anymore. BUT I don't look after my boots very well (just leave them in their boot bag until next game) and play rugby for club, county, service and Combined-service so they have been thoroughly tested!

This pair of boots lasted me for three seasons and about 60 matches, they weren't particularly comfortable to start with, but they wear in well and offer much more ankle protection than my other pair of boots, perfect for a forward.
