These Fairtex Neoprene Shin Guards have reinforced padding at the shin to help protect against injury but yet are sleek enough to allow for all types of grappling movements during MMA sparring. They are lightweight, durable, and provide complete protection for both the shin and instep. This design makes them perfect for both competition, and sparring. The addition of a hook & loop cover over the elastic band at the top assures a secure fit everytime. Handmade in Thailand.
