Collegiate lacrosse teams to don unique Nike uniforms
May '13
The best collegiate lacrosse teams will take the field in highly innovative Nike uniform systems, with select uniforms featuring inspirational designs that pay homage to the sport’s ancient roots.

From its indigenous North American origins as a competitive ritual between hundreds of players on a giant field, lacrosse has become a staple of the American sporting landscape.

Athletes now face off in an intensely physical contest requiring a uniform with durability and optimal ventilation. And with the title at stake, no compromise can be made.


The Nike Vapor Lacrosse Uniform, worn by the Duke and Syracuse men’s teams, is designed for speed and agility. The jersey, while still a traditional loose fit, is slightly more contoured to the body to limit distractions on the field.

It is constructed with a combination of lightweight and recycled Dri-FIT fabrics for moisture management, with sleeve openings cut for full range of motion. The back of the jersey is constructed with a full Dri-FIT mesh panel for increased thermoregulation.

The shoulders feature stretch woven fabric, flat seaming and a functional high-density print that helps protect against abrasion from body and stick checks. The shoulder area also showcases a design pattern distinctive to each school.

Cornell’s Nike Hypercool Uniform features the same flat seams and high-density shoulder construction, but employs a specific burnout mesh panel in the back of the jersey for optimal zoned ventilation in areas where athletes need it most.

In their quest for a championship, Duke wears blue with white accents away, and white with blue at home. Syracuse plays in a trio of uniforms — white, anthracite with bright orange accents, and their traditional orange colorway. Cornell plays in red with white accents when away, and white with red accents at home.

The men complete their Nike Lacrosse system of dress with baselayer that works in concert with the jersey and short. The Nike Pro Combat Hypercool Fitted SS Top 2.0 and Pro Combat Hypercool Compression 6-inch shorts help keep the body cool and dry with lightweight protection for peak performance. Cooling zones in the jersey and pant align with baselayer ventilation for optimal thermoregulation, breathability and moisture management.


The women’s game is predicated on speed and finesse over force. The Nike Vapor Women’s Lacrosse Uniform worn by UNC and Syracuse features a new body-led design that updates the traditional women’s lacrosse kit, including short-sleeve or racerback shirt options and a kilt with built-in shorts.

With increased freedom of movement, the new kilt with built in shorts allows for a five-inch skirt, resulting in fewer distractions on the field. The lay-flat waistline eliminates a drawstring in favor of a power mesh elastic band to keep the kilt in place.
