My daughter is now on a club soccer team and those girls run fast and hard. She comes home from every games with bruises all over her legs. I always wonder how she gets these as she wears shin guards, but maybe they just aren't enough.
Thankfully she has never gotten severely injured, but that risk is always there.
Storelli Sports is a company founded by and for soccer players. They are the only brand devoted exclusively to the design and manufacture of head-to-toe soccer protection.
Alex was able to try both the head ExcoShield Head Guard and the Body Shield Leg Guard.
I will admit when I saw the pictures on the website of the Head Guard I wondered if it would feel bulky and like you were wearing a helmet.
But Alex after wearing it said she really liked it and liked the way it looked, it looked cool, she said.
It really seems more like a giant sweat band (than a helmet), yet you can feel the extra protection throughout. The rate of concussions in soccer is actually quite high and concussions occur more frequently in women's soccer than in men's soccer. While the ExoShield Head Guard does not prevent concussions, studies have shown that it significantly reduces the force of impact to the covered areas.
The Body Shield Leg Guards not only help ensure that the shin guards stay in place, but also helps protect the sides and back of the legs a bit more.
Alex has the type of shin guards with a foot strap and then strap around her leg. The Body Shield Leg guards are designed for the shin guard that you can slip in. She tried the Leg Guards with her regular shin guards and still loved the Leg Guards and said they were so comfortable. She told me we should definitely go buy her some slip in shin guards as she always wants to wear these and it would make it so much easier just to slip her shin guards in.
I think as she continues to use these she will come home with a few less bruises on her legs.
