Club Gear: Sailin' Shoe at Lake Placid 2013
Casey Vock - 8/27/2013
The Sailin' Shoe lacrosse club, started more than 25 years ago by Jake Reed and Jeff Long, is a staple at the Lake Placid Summit Lacrosse Classic and has been since the tournament started way back in 1990.
For years, the team would bring a huge group of people to Lake Placid, as many of the game's top players would join the Sailin' Shoe and bring their families up to the Adirondacks for the annual event. The team's tradition lives on, and this summer, the team returned itself to the top of the lacrosse world by winning the Grand Masters 1 division at the Summit Classic with a 7-3 victory over the Sloe-Moes. Former Cornell netminder Joe Solomon earned MVP honors in the win.
The team was sporting the usual Sailin' Shoe pink, white and navy blue colors, with the threads produced by our buddies at Graph-Tex in Cortland, N.Y. Check the team out below, and be sure to visit our Club Gear section to get a look at a ton of custom club gear, uniforms and apparel.

Syracuse assistant coach Lelan Rogers came out of the rhubarb to help the Sailin' Shoe team at the face-off X. Here, he models the Sailin' Shoe uniform, the custom work of our friends at Graph-Tex. He's sporting some
Sailin' Shoe sideline, puttin' out the vibe.
