I am guessing we might see Michigan in some Adidas gear in the near future:

Wow...big pick up for adidas getting that Michigan deal done.
At UCLA starting last year the men's lacrosse team has the same deal as the athletic department when it comes to shoes and apparel. We are waiting on adidas to get their lacrosse gear samples ready before we begin discussion.
We also have some custom adidas uniforms coming in the Spring of 08 in our real colors for once...should be sweet.

With RBK and Adidas they act as their own company's. They allow usage of different technologies from one line to the next. (look at Rockport's Torsion Line).

have seen enough of both lines to know that the RBK is definately the higher quality of lacrosse equipment....gloves (espically the high end) are really nice.....

I worked a deal out with our athletic department to piggy back with their deal. A couple of our guys are ordering the Adidas shafts and I am going to pick up a head to play around with so I will report back after we get look at them. We are mostly going with Adidas apparel (uniforms, shorts, sweats) and footwear. I really like the Adidas Attack Low Fly cleats.

I only used 1 harrow shaft for 1 game, but it seemed very sturdy to me. Pretty much like my harrow box, but if you like pretty colors, this one's for you.

I can't really comment on the durability over extended periods of time, but just by playing with it, I can definitely say I like it better than the entire python line

Reebok/Adidas generic Uniforms

Postby LaxLovginGal on Tue Dec 04, 2007 12:11 pm

I definitely agree about the generic uniforms. Boathouse's uniforms are very cool. A lot of club teams use them. Equip. wise gotta stick with Harrow. THoughts on Boathouse?

I like them and they are great supporters of everything we do, including our camp. Just like every other company. I'm sure there's a bunch of people out there that haven't had good experiences.
