Collection: Shin Guards

But with great power comes the potential for injury. That's where shin guards come in – essential protective equipment for safeguarding your shins from the impact of kicks, knees, and elbows.

Here at Blegend Gym Store, we understand the importance of proper protection. This guide will equip you with the knowledge to choose the perfect pair of Muay Thai shin guards for your training needs.

Understanding Shin Guard Anatomy:

Muay Thai shin guards typically consist of three key components:

  • Shin Pad: The primary protective element, absorbing the impact of strikes. Look for multi-layered padding made from high-density foam (EVA foam) or carbon fiber for optimal shock absorption and durability.
  • Foot Guard: Extends protection to the top of your foot, safeguarding against kicks and potential ankle injuries.
  • Closure System: Ensures a secure and comfortable fit. Velcro straps are common, offering adjustability and ease of use.

Choosing the Right Material:

  • Shell: Leather is a classic choice, offering excellent durability and breathability. Microfiber provides similar benefits with a slightly lighter feel. Polyester is a cost-effective option, but may not be as breathable or long-lasting.
  • Lining: Cotton is a comfortable and breathable choice, ideal for wicking away moisture during training.

Finding Your Perfect Fit:

Shin guard sizing is crucial. Ill-fitting guards can restrict movement or leave vulnerable areas exposed. Here's a general guide to get you started, but always refer to the manufacturer's size chart for the most accurate measurements:

Height Size
Up to 157 cm S
157-175 cm M
175-185 cm L
Over 185 cm XL
