Gilbert is Rugby
Gilbert was founded by William Gilbert (1799-1877) who was the boot and shoe maker to Rugby School. He operated from a small shop in the town at 19, High Street which was later acquired by Grays as a sports shop and still operates to this day.
Gilbert became best known for their range of Rugby balls, still probably the most well known item under the Gilbert name and the boots side of the business though still important perhaps took a back seat. The group now comprises Grays, Steeden and Gilbert and has a vast range of team wear for many sports part of which is the strong brand of Rugby Boots for both Union and League. All their Boots conform to the IRB regulations appertaining to boots and studs.
Gilbert is the long-standing official match ball supplier to a number of rugby unions such as England, Wales, Scotland, Australia, South Africa, France, Italy, and Argentina. Teams supported by Gilbert include the Dragons and Newport RFC and players under their roster have the likes of Jake Ball, Aaron Shingler, and Brad Shields. Gilbert used to also sponsor Thierry Dusautoir during his playing career.
