    3 Reasons Custom-Fit Shin Pads are Safer

    As a parent, carer or coach, we always prioritise the safety of our children during a game of football or even routine training. One essential piece of protective gear that has been ignored and under-looked is shin pads. While conventional/ standard or "non-mouldable" shin pads have been the norm for many years, they have begun to be left behind as science and technology paves a path for improved protection. Mouldable/Custom-Fit shin pads ensure a much more superior, comfortable and personalised-fit and we'll explore this further over the next few minutes. We'll look into the reasons why children should make the switch to mouldable shin pads and how these innovative guards can be a game-changer for young athletes.

    Custom Fit for Comfort and Performance

    Traditional shin pads come in standard sizes, leaving room for discomfort and potential slippage during intense physical activity. Mouldable shin pads on the other hand, offer a personalised fit that moulds to the contours of the wearer's shin. This custom fit ensures that the shin pads stay securely in place, reducing the risk of slippage, injury and allowing young athletes to focus on their game without constantly adjusting their gear.

    Improved Impact Absorption

    The ability of mouldable shin pads to conform to the specific shape of a child's shin ensures that the impact force is evenly distributed. This custom-fit enhances the pads' capacity to absorb and dissipate impact energy, reducing the risk of injuries such as contusions, bruises, or more severe damage to the shins. 

    Durability and Longevity

    Mouldable shin pads are often made from advanced materials that offer durability and longevity. Shinplex™ stands out from its competition in this space. Unlike other mouldable shin pads that may wear out quickly or lose their shape over time, Shinplex™ shin pads maintain their structural integrity, providing consistent protection throughout the season. This not only ensures the safety of young athletes but also saves parents from frequent replacements.


    In the world of youth sports, where safety is paramount, it's crucial to equip our children with gear that not only protects but also enhances their overall performance. Mouldable shin pads have emerged as a revolutionary choice, offering a custom fit, improved protection, and enhanced comfort. By making the switch to mouldable shin pads, we empower our young athletes to play with confidence, knowing that they are well-protected on the field. As parents and caregivers, it's our responsibility to explore and embrace innovations that contribute to the well-being and success of our children in their athletic pursuits.
    It's a small investment that can make a significant difference in a child's safety on the field.
