These are very economical Shock Wave BLACK shin and instep pads. They are very well made of a durable and comfortable elasticized fabric blend. Featuring thick 1/2” foam padding for solid protection. It’s a non-slip fit and holds shape and size through repeated use and washings.
For sizing, we recommend you use your (men’s) t-shirt size as a guide. That generally works pretty well unless you’re at one end of the bell curve or the other (you’re on the thin side or heavy side). Since they are elastic, they do accommodate a range of sizes/diameters.
- Our SUPER return policy allows you to return them with NO RESTOCKING fees – even if they are used (because we have, like, real people that work here).
- NOT made of “paint covered foam” so they are going to last longer than 6 months and not end up cracking and falling apart.
- Sold in pairs because… well… most people usually end up wanting TWO… so we thought that would be a totally cool way to sell them! 😉
- We designed these for doing most styles of combat martial arts like MMA, UFC, Karate, and general grappling … but… well… really all of these things do a pretty good job (it’s not rocket science after all – they’re all about the same), but at least you can send ours back if you don’t like them because we’re so darned laid back about it! 😉
- ½” thick foam padding that will make it through the washer when they just get way too funky smelling – though the running them through the dryer a lot will kind of cook them after a while. Maybe you should stick with the “air drying” thing for that?
