The Nike Huarache cleats have become a staple on the lacrosse field. As detailed in the big reveal at Nike’s The Ride this summer, the Huarache name holds a lot of history at Nike. From running to basketball and now to the lacrosse field, the Huarache footwear legacy is one that focuses on an athletic design that packs only the bare essentials to give you that edge over your competition.
From the ground up, Nike stripped out all unnecessary weight and material to provide a cleat that will not slow you down. The most unique feature to the Huarache 5 line is definitely the Chinese Finger Trap construction that was carried over from the Nike Free Trainer 5.0. This unique construction is designed to lock your foot into the shoe as more movement is introduced to the cleat while running up and down the field, similar to how the Chinese Finger Trap locks in your fingers the harder you try and pull them out.
The Huarache 5 cleat foot bed features a similar layout to that of the Huarache 4’s with three zones of cleated traction. If you are a fan of the Huarache 4 or previous models, then you are sure to become a fan of the 5 series as they have kept all of the already popular components while improving upon the overall fit technology.
