Under Armour sponsored two-week project focusing on linear movement in women's lacrosse.

A women's lacrosse cleat for midfielders, focused on linear movement.

Foot comes in at 55 degree angle

Back foot toe drag begins, front foot approaches ground

Back foot toe drag, front foot slams down

Front knee bend, back foot prepares for take off

Linear motion keeps the body moving forward

Forward stability achieved, back foot lifts off

Energy is lost as it reverberates up the leg. The goal is to provide solutions so that energy moves all the way up from the heel through the arm.
