Anyone who is interested in playing lacrosse, whether in a casual, just-for-fun setting or for an organized team, should invest in a pair of lacrosse cleats or lacrosse shoes. Lacrosse is a fast-paced game requiring players to run across grass or turf, which can be slippery, especially after a rainstorm. Therefore, your footwear must be able to provide a firm grip so that you can maintain your speed and agility while remaining stable. When you're choosing your men's or women's lacrosse cleats make sure to check out Academy Sports + Outdoors' selection of lacrosse sticks and lacrosse protective gear, so you can stock up on the rest of your lacrosse gear too.
Many lacrosse cleats feature outsoles specially designed to grab the playing surface. Most outsoles are constructed with TPU plates, while some are made with rubber or other materials. The best cleats offer great traction and stability as you sprint across the field and score. The majority of lacrosse shoes feature low-cut synthetic uppers for a lightweight design and lace closures for a snug and secure fit. Many feature simple white, gray, black or silver color schemes, but some in our selection present a pop of color so you stand out among your teammates.
