I'm thinking of investing in a new pair and it would be good to get everyone's thoughts.

Any boot that is comfortable and has replaceable studs, for soft ground or hard ground.

As for me I am a forward, I normally wear Adidas Flanker which is light and you can change the studs to suit any types of  condition of turf you playing on.

Cant go past Mizuno boots, I have a wider foot and find they fit well every time and you can wear them straight away with out getting blisters and cuts the hassle time from having to wear boots in, the Asics boots are good too but prefer Mizuno as I find you need to wear them in

I would agree with the Adidas Flanker as they come in different width sizes. I can never understand why most manafactures think a size 12 foot would be narrow

Stick with name brand rugby boots. Young players particularly backs sometimes elect for flashy colored soccer cleats. These boots claim they are light like wings on you feet and will make you a few steps faster.  Yes they are light and offer little or no support for the rigors of serious contact rugby. The Adidas Flanker, Mizuno and Gilbert make a wide range of boots for forwards and backs. The medium cut boot is a good place to start.
