Inspired by the experiences playing soccer in the streets of Spain, Brazil, Bolivia, and Mexico, a group of college soccer friends founded Calle in 2006 in a Provo, Utah basement. The founders believed playing without refs or coaches allowed for more creativity and new ideas. Calle started selling tees from their cars to camp kids and local soccer shops, and grew to sell in about 150 soccer shops across the country. In 2012, after six years of grind, the brand had to hang up its boots.
On August 26, 2022, after a decade hiatus, founder Travis Winn and Nick Rimando relaunched Calle with some original designs in their downtown SLC office. The brand's mission remains the same: to promote community-based street courts where players can play for free. By donating 10% of their sales to the non-profit Free the Game, Calle remains anchored to its core values. With three street courts in STL and a plan to build three more in SLC in 2023, Calle is just getting started.
