Brave Shin Instep Guards feature two adjustable hook-and-loop closure straps per guard: one located at the calf and one at the ankle. Since ankle straps tend to need more frequent readjusting, we added our convenient Grab Tab feature the lower strap: an easy-to-grip tab that allows you to loosen or tighten the straps even if your hands are gloved up. The neoprene construction of the guards hugs your leg, providing increased comfort and slip-resistance when throwing or checking kicks, and a sectioned, flexible sewn ankle panel provides the necessary foot and ankle mobility for quick movements. Gender: unisex. Age Group: adult.
