*NOTE The Medium size are printed with FC ROMA logos. Same guard. Just different logo. It's all we could get from S1 at this time.
The foot and the leg move independently of each other – FACT! Because the S1 shin and ankle guard are fitted separately to the leg and foot it allows this to happen.
It also gives the player the freedom of choice for size selection as legs and feet come in all different shapes and sizes! The majority of ankle pads available today are made of a cloth type material consisting of a thick corded rib on either the bottom and/or top of the pad.
The S1 pad is ultra thin and is made of a super soft neoprene, (the same type of material used for making diving suits) and can be worn either under or over a sock. Our design also means that we have eliminated the corded edges on both the top and the bottom of the pad therefore minimizing the possibility of foot abrasion, blisters, etc
We have provided maximum protection for both the inner and the outer ankle bone and the achilles. For the ankle, we have inserted solid protector discs, sewn inside the pad for maximum comfort and most importantly, a dual achilles protector with built in impact absorption on the outer surface as well as on the inner surface to provide maximum protection. As with the undersection, the ankle and achilles pad is also machine washable.
