Earn your legacy on the field with the limited edition Nike Huarache V Thompson Water Pack cleats. Inspired by the Thompson brother’s legacy in the game, these black and blue beauties embody the warrior's will to always find a way. And as Nike’s first lacrosse-specific cleat, they give lax players the type of agility only our game demands.
The Huarache 5s are rooted in the basic principles of all Huaraches: lightweight, secure, and dynamic. As mentioned above, they’re made specifically for the lacrosse game. You won’t find converted football cleats here. No, these start out specifically designed for the demands of lacrosse.
The synthetic woven leather bands on each side resemble a Chinese finger trap and wrap each foot in a super-lightweight, breathable fit that keeps you locked in yet free to flex, cut and deke out the competition with ease. Similarly, the “Flywire” lace-up cables provide additional dynamics to the fit and lockdown support for no wasted movements.
Twelve strategically placed bottom cleats and sidewall shovel cleats provide field-carving levels of traction and give you quicker, stronger edge movements. The ¾-length wedge Phylon midsole provides comfortable cushioning that combines with the TPU outsole for lightweight support no matter the angle.
The limited edition colors look absolutely stunning in person and as a nod to the Thompson’s Native American heritage are steeped in meaning. Black represents difficult times that athletes may face in life outside of competition, while the blue Nike swoosh represents water and its powerful ability to always find a way to overcome. Additional LE details include the Thompson brother’s braid found on the “T” logo.
The Huarache 5s are so much more than a simple marketing ploy. These are some of the best looking, high-performing LE’s to come along in quite a while. Get yours while supplies last.
