“Just thought that I would let you know that I had a week in Val Thorens from 25 January and used the Shin Shields every day and did not suffer any shin pain at all, nor did I get a sweat rash which is what I used to get from the previous gel shin protectors as well as shin discomfort towards the end of a weeks skiing”.
After twisting my ankle in Bulgaria over Xmas and with it not totally
feeling right just before the next trip to Baqueira, Spain (12th Jan). I
ordered two packs of Shinsheilds. Well shame but was not able to skiing
nothing more nursery/green slopes for 2 days worth as ankle to painful.
As ankle was getting better after we returned decided to book another late
deal back to Bulgaria. With ankle strapped and shinshields in place, don the
ski boots no twings .
The main reason for this note is that I suffer every year from blisters from
ski boot tongue movement as I have small calfs. Some years have been really
bad, have been using a gel shin pad for 6-7yrs but still have minor
blisters. This year only used ShinShields and first time since I started
skiing 13yrs ago (17wks) and probably hardiest skiing (nervous intermediate)
I’ve done, and at end of week not one blister and red mark, except the http://www.ShinShield.com wording branded on my legs as one morning I put it on the
wrong way round

Recently we’ve been researching different materials to see if we can make Shin Shields better than they already are! We love the way that PORON 2000® Material works and makes our product more effective than any of our competitors due to the high sensitivity of it’s absorbing nature, but we wanted to make it even better.
If you’ve already been to the product pages, you’ll have noticed we’ve changed the Shin Shields from green to yellow, that’s because they’re now constructed from PORON® XRD Performance Cushioning. This revolutionary new material has all the properties of PORON 2000® Material but has even more impact absorption, meaning they’re more effective and comfortable.
