I arrived in Brooklyn, New York for a day of shooting with Storelli a couple weeks ago. I haven't been that excited to do something since my mom let me shave my legs for the very first time when I was twelve, which I now regret wholeheartedly. It's tough being a girl. But Storelli made it easy. I slid into my Bodyshield outfit, my face and hair was beautified, and we were off for a day of quotes like "Do I look weird?" and "Coach me, I'm so bad at this."
Women's Bodyshield Crop Top: This crop top is straight up for bougie badasses. Finally I got to use that word for something! It's super hero status. Wearing this thing....you mean business. You can just tell that a lot of time, effort, and work went into designing it. Its not just a cookie cutter crop top with a stick on logo like the rest of em. The coolest parts about it is the protective padding on the chest which is removable, the stylish mesh shoulder straps, and the rib protection on the sides for blocking those flying elbows we have all experienced. The fit is snug to your body but is extremely breathable. It's built with enough support so you don't even need to wear a bra under this top. I usually find it very hard to find tops where I am not constantly fidgeting, but this one easily moves with my body and is hassle free. I would honestly wear this top with jeans, some sporty kicks, and a cute jacket for some city slickin'. And is it just me or does it make your arms and shoulders look way more toned and tan? I'm fishing for compliments here so just toss them over.
Women's Bodyshield Abrasion Leggings: I am always struggling with what to wear when I'm training on turf. Is it just me or is it hard for everyone to find good soccer practice outfits, especially during the winter months? I've been playing for 20 years, grew up in Boston (best city ever) and I still struggle to be completely 100% comfortable while training. These leggings with shorts over them just might be the answer to my problems. They are as tight as compression pants which I absolutely love, but again, you don't feel like you're suffocating. They stretch in any direction you move your legs but never need any adjusting. It almost feels like they are gripping your legs. And raspberries on the thighs and lower leg don't stand a chance against the anti-abrasion panels. Slide tacking is no longer an issue. NO EXCUSES NOW! These Storelli people know what they're doing if you ask me. And you guys...the leggings have shinguard pockets. Jaw dropping.
I am proud to say that I am a Storelli Athlete. It is so humbling and special to be a part of a female athlete specific line. Not only is the gear comfortable, but it was designed just for me. It gives me confidence knowing that the company believes in me and the female athlete community this much to make an entire line just for us female soccer players. Now I feel more ambitious than ever and excited for what the future holds.
Storelli has exactly the type of attitude Sporting Chic is trying to emulate. Working with the Storelli crew was like hanging out with a bunch of my friends. They made me feel at ease and comfortable in my own skin. The day was filled with energy, laughs, and birthday donuts. Doesn't take much more to make me a happy girl.
