Cam Newton famously wore the Under Armour Highlight Cleats during his highlight-filled rookie season for the Carolina Panthers. The Terps are next. Under Armour made custom cleats for the Men’s Lacrosse team called Team Highlight Speed Cleats. These custom cleats are for Maryland only and feature the iconic Maryland state flag wrapped around the body of the cleat in a Black and White colorway. The bottom of the cleat is prominently colored Maryland Gold with molded spikes.
The cleat has a built-in, locked-in fit with a 4D foam sockliner, which conforms the exact shape of the foot. A Corespeed chassis charges the foot’s natural motion, flexibility and acceleration. The CompFit construction allows for the player’s ankle to fit comfortably and allow the athlete to change direction without a hitch.
Talk about a statement piece! Here are more examples of how Maryland teams are utilizing the state flag this season. Let us know what you think in the comments.
