Canterbury Rugby Boots

Canterbury’s tagline is ‘Committed to the Game’ and the company indeed has an established reputation for producing rugby boots made for the specific needs of rugby players. According to the manufacturer themselves, they believe different boots should be produced and customized catering to multiple aspects of the sport, thus creating several boot lines tailor fitted to the different roles of rugby players. The boots are intentionally made to highlight a particular strength to help the player find the perfect boot for him and/or identify the role where he can be most effective using Canterbury footwear. Whatever the strength is, Canterbury makes sure that the boots still provide a high standard of durability, comfort, and support.
The Start of Canterbury Sports
Canterbury of New Zealand was founded by John Lane, Pringle Walker and Alfred Rudkin. The company first made woollen garments but things took off after the Great War when the New Zealand national team (the All Blacks) asked them to produce a team strip. The company continued to support the team for 75 years and since that time has become the largest dedicated rugby brand in the world. Which is why international forwards such as Andrew Sheridan and Duncan & Adam Jones wear their boots.
Aside from on-field sportswear, Canterbury is also manufacturing products intended for training purposes. And such is Canterbury’s and rugby’s embeddedness to the people’s culture that the company is also producing casual wear equivalents.
Teamwear is a significant part of Canterbury’s production. Some of the teams that they serve as a kit supplier are England (up until the conclusion of the 2020 Six nations), Ireland, and Japan. On the club level, it sponsors Top 12’s Asocacion Alumni, the Premiership’s Bath Rugby, and Top 14’s Union Bordeaux Begles.
It will be remembered that before the 2015 Rugby World Cup Canterbury had launched a unique social media release for England’s kit in which England supporters who signed up for the release via the company’s website got the chance to reveal the team jersey exclusively on their personal accounts. They also launched a treasure hunt for the crates containing the jerseys, with the crates dropped all around the country and the clues of the locations provided via social media as well.
