BOSTON (November 13, 2017) - Major League Lacrosse (MLL), the premier outdoor professional lacrosse league, announced today that WarDog Lacrosse will be an official provider of athletic socks for the 2018 MLL season. After a period of collaboration with MLL players, WarDog has developed an athletic sock tailored to the needs of the players.
“WarDog Lacrosse is excited to partner with Major League Lacrosse and support lacrosse athletes with a sock designed specifically for them,” said Callum Brown, co-founder of WarDog Lacrosse. “Lacrosse athletes and the sport of lacrosse are unique and unlike any other and their equipment should reflect that.”
The company is creating custom sock designs for each of the nine MLL teams. The socks are built to withstand the demanding nature of lacrosse with features such as padding to protect the heel and ball of the foot, a spandex leg to prevent sliding and Coolmax® technology across the entire foot for maximum moisture wicking.
Star attackman Kevin Rice and other MLL players tested the socks during the 2017 MLL All-Star Game and provided feedback to WarDog. The socks are primarily comprised of nylon with polyester, Coolmax® and spandex.
