CALLE Street Soccer

Check out CALLE, founded by five semi-professional soccer players who’d lived in Bolivia, Brazil, and Spain. They wanted to bring the passion and creativity of street soccer to the US and have created the first urban lifestyle brand rooted in the game they love. Fortune Small Business named CALLE one of the top 3 Student Business Startups of 2007. In 2009 Steve Nash chose CALLE to be the official apparel sponsor of his charity event The Showdown in Chinatown. CALLE is street soccer gear designed to change the way the game is played.

CALLE is is involved in street soccer events all over the country and recently held one in the New York area. For more information, check out their website here and blog here.

That video is impressive! I have absolutely no skills with a soccer ball.

Your link to the home page wasn't working, but I was able to get to the main site through the blog. I browsed through their clothing a bit. Looks like CALLE is doing some great things!

Thanks Lindsay - I fixed the link! Oh, and yeah, I can only dream of having a portion of the soccer skills in the video.
