ASICS builds size 19 rugby boots for Wallabies Lock Will Skelton

Back in the middle of 2014, the Australian Rugby Union approached ASICS to make a pair of rugby boots for lock Will Skelton. The reason being that Will simply couldn’t get boots big enough for his feet and he has had to make do with boots that weren’t built for rugby union. ASICS did not have size 19 boots in their range at the time but agreed to work with Will on a boot that will fit him and allow him to play at his best. This video captures some of the key moments of the process.
