They are usually very Lightweight and have foot plates designed for explosiveness. A difference between lacrosse cleats and other sports is that the spikes are made to enhance your lateral movement and cuts. In lacrosse, you need to beagle to change direction on a dime to be able to make the next play on the ball. A new trend that has appeared in the last few years was girls and women buying men's cleats to take advantage of the new technologies and most manufacturers have taken notice and started making their cleats unisex sizing. On our site all cleats are listed with men’s and women’s sizes and if you need help picking the right size be sure to look at our cleat sizing guide or call our Pro Staff at 855-255-5294 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year, the Nike Alpha Huarache 7 Elite footplate was redesigned specifically for lacrosse. If you buy these, you will have some of the best ground-gripping technology in the game. The Nike Alpha Huarache 7 Elite is made with triangular cleats, and our Pro's noticed the difference on the field because they had better traction in their sideline sprints, and roll dodges. Nike has a brilliant mix in the design of this cleat because it includes non-binding Flywire technology, a triangular 12 cleated propulsion sole, and knit cuff construction. This combo gives you the best fitting, not too snug feeling that literally anchors you down into the footplate, in a lightweight, mid style cleat that is supportive yet agile. Flywire in our opinion, unlike laces that lockdown on almost every loop, Flywire locks down evenly on the ENTIRE STRETCH of your upper foot and ankle. As you flex, this tension is distributed evenly and actually pulls the sole of the cleat upwards to lock you down even harder, where most cleats force you to lose speed because they have a little slip in them, the Nike Alpha Huarache 7 Elites just bolt you down comfortably. The Nike Alpha Huarache 7 Elites have a slip-on design and have a light synthetic mesh overlay for breathability, durability, and reduced weight.
Also a new addition to the popular Nike Huarache Cleat Line, the Pro is the new version of a low cut cleat. This is great for players that don’t like the mid-high version or have a hard time getting their foot in the “sock” part of the elite. These versions sacrifice a little ankle support but make up for it in how light they are. These cleats are made for speed. Players charging down the field in transition and making a play on the goal. If you're making a lot of cuts or side to side movements we would stick with the added support of the elites. If you were a fan of the older Nike Vapor Low Cleat, then these cleats are for you.

The new upper includes a 3D woven saddle combined with a footplate to help support harder cuts to the cage and provide lateral traction to dodge defenders.
