Walking in cleats as a college lacrosse player

Cleat history

King Henry VIII is credited as having the first pair of soccer cleats and they were likely made by the Shoemaker Cornelius Johnson around 1525. Although these were technically soccer cleats, they differed greatly from the soccer shoes that we have come to know. The cleat is also used for gripping the ground for running and sprinting extremely fast.

A lacrosse game with Paul Rabil

The first thing I look at when I get on the field is the goal. I tell myself that I'm going to score on that goal. I might score multiple times ,but I'm going to score. As the game begins it is a slow start. I don't get the ball much and we are basically just running up and down the field. As the second half of the game approaches it gets just a little bit more intense. Both of our teams have scored 1 goal. In the second half it seems I'm on fire. My cleats are helping me juke and run fast against the other team. I've also scored 2 goals because they finally passed the ball to me. The cleats I'm in right now are new and I think that they are the best.

Different types of cleats

There are actually three different types of cleats designed for different kinds of playing surfaces. Cleats designed for soft grounds have removable blades or studs. These studs vary in size and are made specifically for softer fields. Cleats produced for firm surfaces have studs or blades built into the sole of the shoe that are designed for typical fields offering a moderate amount of traction. Cleats designed for hard playing surfaces have dozens of tiny grips across the sole to provide traction and adherence on extremely hard grounds or artificial turfs.
