The new Kooga XTB LCST range of boots combine stylish design, with advanced technology to create a cutting edge rugby boot used by players all the way up to professional and international level. Take a look at the video below as we give you our first impressions out of the box:
The XTB comes in the ‘Classic’ design (see image below), featuring fluoro orange accents on black, as well as the more extroverted ‘Nuevo’ styling that incorporates fluorescent green features against a primary highlighted-purple base. As well as striking features, this new range is also lighter weight, and includes a new clear sniper stud system featuring removable, and moulded studs.
There is also a new tongue – minus the ‘flip-over’ of previous styles – that makes use of Kooga’s D30 impact absorption material. More advanced features include the ISO Quad grip on the insole that helps to create a more secure fit and increased precision, as well as comfort. Enhancing stability further is the external pre-moulded heel counter, along with high tensile stitching used for improved sole adhesion.
The low cut, soft toe, style of the XTB range delivers a boot with an excellent balance of technology and practicality, that is durable, yet still provides the wearer with the tactile feedback, comfort and performance to help them play at their best.
