Gilbert Vortex Rugby Boots
The Vortex Rugby Boots are another from Gilbert that were released in 2009. They were a club level boot and came in low and mid cut versions with 8 studs and sizes from 6 to 15 so only for adults. These were a boot we thought would be around for some time, but it would appear not so we suggest the Gilbert Barbarian boots would be a reasonable alternative.
