Several All Blacks, including outside backs Julian Savea and Israel Dagg, sported new boots in their clash against Scotland last weekend, with Savea and Dagg debuting the new adidas RS7 Pro IIIs.
The RS7, adidas’ ‘speed boot’, is striking in bright blue with lime highlights, although adidas will be sure to release varying colourways in the coming months.
Their patented Sprint Skin Upper makes the boot incredibly light yet robust and durable, while the foot hugging shape creates a natural feel. Kickers benefit from the synthetic print on the ‘kicking zone’ of the boot, while the mix of moulded and removable studs make the RS7 suitable for a range of natural surfaces.
Dagg and Savea put in impressive performances as the reigning World Champions brushed aside the Scots in the first test of their Northern Hemisphere tour, with Dagg dotting down before being forced from the field with injury, and Savea bagging a brace.
