Timely delivery, good fit.
   Awesome Boots, December 11, 2017  By Anonymous (San Luis Obispo, CA)
The high tops allow me to push off and marinating during Scrums. Keep in mind that I am a prop so I can't attest to how well they work when running fast.

Love the boot and the ankle support, runs a little bigger than normal, but added foot beds and it helped a lot. great customer service, love this company
   Solid, so far, September 29, 2017  By Chad (Delaware, OH)(Verified)
Wore them in the first match for me this season. So far, so good.
   Good solid tight five boot, September 27, 2017  By Stew (Syracuse, NY)(Verified)
These run a little small, I normally wear an 11, and went with the 11.5 here.

It fits really nicely around my food, not even a hot spot while breaking them in. And the high top gives my ankles lots of support.

There is zero padding under your foot, so if hard fields are your norm, a slice of padding may be a good idea.

   Great boot!, July 28, 2017  By Anonymous (River Ridge, LA)
Normally have to buy wide shoes. Tried different brands, and the Gilbert runs a bit wider than most. Very comfortable to play in!
   Tight five-friendly boot, April 13, 2017  By Nick Gonzalez (Gary, IN)(Verified)
I love Gilbert boots the best as they tend to be wider. This is a comfortable boot, and the ankle support comes in handy during the set pieces.

My daughter loves the way this feels on her foot.
   Good boots, December 27, 2016  By Anonymous (Dixon, CA)
Bought my son his second pair of these. Good for Forwards/Lock/prop. Hold up pretty good got one season out of them. My son is big so lasted longer than I thought.
