Uhlsport Carbon Flex Shin Guard
For an effective shin guard, carbon and polypropylene are two of the best materials you can find at a reasonable price point. Young players in particular will want to wear something that strong to protect them from injury no matter what skill level they possess. Uhlsport's Carbon Flex guard has a rugged impact resistant plate that is built from a mixture of both materials, for a shield that safeguards the shin from hard contact while absorbing the shocks and blows from opposing players trying to get after the ball. They're lined with a padded shock absorbing protective inner foam that keeps the guard comfortable against the skin while minimizing the brunt of punishment that it will endure. These are also lightweight at just about 50 grams, so they won't weigh you down on the pitch either.
The Carbon Flexes come with a pair of specially designed compression socks fitted with special inserts to keep the shin guards in place. They've been enhanced with thermoplastic polyurethane inserts to help support the calf muscle while promoting blood circulation in the leg. This additional benefit helps reduce injury risk for both the outside and inside of your lower leg by keeping the shin from taking impact while preventing muscular and circulatory injuries as well. Uhlsport has also infused them with AEGIS anti-bacterial treating to keep them free of germs and odors after repeated use.
