They are the same - most football boot / Rugby boots have the same foot sizes - However, there are some rugby boots that sit higher in the ankle than football boots to protect the ankle from stud damage. Added to this many newer Rugby boot makes carry a 10 stud configuration (6 in the sole 4 in the heel) for great grip for the push factor they also have studs all the same length as the heel studs for the same reason
Rugby boots are usually stronger and usually have 10 studs, where soccer cleats have around 16. Depending on which position a player plays in rugby, their boots may be as light as soccer cleats for backs, or heavier and sturdier for forwards.
Yes you can as soccer cleats are versatile cleats, but i would recommend football cleats as they have a higher ankle providing more support.
Preference is that of the player. Most centres where rugby boots as opposed to soccer boots as the rugby version have 6 sole studs and 2 heal where soccer boots have 4 sole and 2 heal. In rugby the studs used are all "heal" length for grip, soccer use 10 millimeter in the sole
Soccer cleats provides the appropriate grip to the turf or ground. They would not be used on solid ground as they would not break the surface to afford the player grip.
no such thing. - The equivalent kick in soccer and rugby would be the placed penalty kick.
All styles of cleats are different depending on brand and preference. The main difference between soccer cleats and cleats for baseball is a "toe spike". Baseball cleats have a spike at the front of the foot, where the toes are to provide traction when taking off running in dirt, whereas, soccer cleats do not have this toe spike, because it would be hard to kick a ball off the ground properly without it getting stuck in the ground. Also soccer cleats are usually more "form fitting" or will have a more sleek and tighter feel to them since you play soccer with your feet, this allows for maximum feeling of control
I don't think anyone would, the Nike Park boots are not upper end cleats. You may be thinking about Nike Tiempo, which are cleats with a variety of levels.. There are number of players who have worn them, as I have seen in pictures (a past number 11 and 8...) but I'm not sure now.
I would say you can. They would have better ankle support!
Yes. Without them, it would be easier to slide and be unsafe. The cleats, or spikes make it easier to grip the ground.
yes you can as long as the do not have medal studs. the rule is you cant have medal if you wanted to you could wear a normal pair of shoes but i would not recommend it just buy a cheap pair of boots (cleats) and shinguard and go and play so soccer!!!
No player would wear shin pads in rugby, there is no need for them.
You want a under armor cleats are really good and comphortable
