While developing our premium MMA Shin Instep Guards, we consulted with trainers and fighters across the country. We took their input and created a uniquely designed shin instep guards that combine looks, functionality, and comfort in perfect balance! These guards are made with premium synthetic leather, lightweight injection molded foam padding, and our patented Crossgrip-DSS strapping system. The two straps on the back run in opposite directions, providing amazing grip that refuses to allow the shins to spin around your leg during high power kicks. Also the padding is specially designed for maximum shock absorption so that you can kick as hard as you want for as long as you want without suffering consequences.
