Westford, Mass. (Spring 2011) – On-field at game-time, it’s all team jerseys, soccer shorts, and socks hiked up to her knees. But come practice, a casual pickup game, or a weekend hanging with friends, the female footballer’s uniform is much less defined. Until now, that is, with the debut of sportslifestyle brand PUMA® ’s Spring 2011 Women’s Soccer Training Collection. Created for the rising young soccer superstar looking to showcase her athlete status in all aspects of her wardrobe, both on and off the pitch, the collection features cropped Scimmel tanks perfect for those pre-game warm-ups, cozy hoodies ideal for tossing on after practice, and the most perfectly-slouchy sweats and capris that its designers could dream up. The collection pops with cheerful color and layers together impeccably; plus, its carefully-considered silhouettes bear witness to PUMA’s distinctive design-savvy.
Rooted in authenticity but with a style that transcends the single sport, the PUMA Women’s Soccer Training collection is the product of a brand that’s shown a true commitment to the game. Case in point, PUMA’s partnership with Women’s Professional Soccer – the best women’s pro league on the planet, based right here in the US – and sponsorship of top female talent like totally fierce five-time FIFA World Player of the Year Marta, US national team contender and soccer’s own A-Rod Amy Rodriguez, girl-next-door superstar Leslie Osborne, goalie-with-the-mostest Karina LeBlanc, dynamic and dominant tattooed powerhouse Natasha Kai, and world-class defender (and cooler-than-cool Brit) Alex Scott.
Key Highlights from the Spring 2011 Women’s Soccer Training Collection
Lifestyle SL Hoodie – PUMA’s Lifestyle SL Hoodie is the perfect post-practice or weekend wear for the fashion-minded young athlete. Available in an array of bright colors accented with pop color drawstrings and inner hood, the pullover also features an understated PUMA logo and hand-drawn heart graphic.
Soccer Scimmel – The Soccer Scimmel is a performance piece with truly unique styling for the girl who’s looking to make astatement both on the field and off. This cropped tank, featuring a two-color binding and graphic print on the back, is further enhanced with moisture-wicking properties and an internal medium support bra.
Soccer Capri – Ask any female athlete: the perfect pair of sweats is not easily found – and even less readily given up. Both colorful and flattering, the PUMA Soccer Capri features zip pockets and a contrast elastic waistband. Bottom hem designed to be scrunched to taste.
Lifestyle Windbreaker – A great basic silhouette, dialed up in youthful color with contrast stitching, zip, and hood, the Lifestyle Windbreaker is perfect for tossing on after a scrimmage but is still totally cute as an extra layer for a night out with friends. Gathers running the length of each arm only further the jacket’s style-savvy.
