Shin Guards

Shin guards to protect your legs in competitive sport

It is vital to protect your legs when you are playing sport, especially football (soccer) and hockey where your lower legs are at risk of heavy impacts from tackles, sticks and the ball.

Your shin is very different to other parts of your body in that they are not insulated by muscle and tissue with the bone pressing up near the skin. They are so important in football (soccer) that it has mandated the use of shin guards in all levels of the sport to protect players from being injured.

The types of injury you can collect in sport without shin guards 

Whether you are playing a social or indoor competition or at the highest level, there are many leg injuries you become exposed to when playing sports like football, soccer, hockey and futsal. They include:


  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Abrasions
  • Contusions and;
  • Fractures


Shin guards provide a barrier between your leg and the damaging studs on the bottom of football boots, hockey sticks and more to prevent abrasions and contusions but they also have shock absorption qualities to help prevent more serious injuries like breaks and fractures.
