What’s goin on guys, Jerry here I’m back with another video. Today I wanted to show you something that I’ve added to my soccer bag. These are the Brine King shin guards in yellow.
These are a lightweight and low profile shin guard and they looked so dope I just had to pick them up. It’s been honestly about 10 years since I’ve purchased any shin guards so I decided to grab something a little more modern both in terms of protection and fitment.
So with these shin guards you get a hard plastic outer shell which is covered by Brine’s awesome king logo and a variety of colors which include yellow, blue and orange. There’s also these small holes at the top and bottom of the guard to help with breathability.
On the inside of the shin guard you get this nice and thick foam material. This is what’s going to absorb most of the impact if you are kicked in the shin. And then you’ve just got some product information on the inside as well, as you can see I have a size large. Also these are NOCSAE approved which means you kids in high school will be able to wear these with no issues.
When looking at the shin guards you can see the foam padding is nice and thick. One thing I noticed is the glue holding the foam to the plastic was missing or insufficient in some areas which caused the foam to separate from the plastic. Hopefully that doesn’t pose an issue as far as long term durability goes but I’ll have to keep my eye on that.
One cool thing about these shin guards is that they also come with sleeves which look equally as sick as the guards themselves. The ones that came with mine are white with kind of a light green colored pattern which covers the entire sleeve except the back which has a solid white strip with a black King logo.
The sleeves are actually designed to hold the shin guards themselves so the guards never make direct contact with your leg. As I put them on you can see from a profile view there isn’t too much bulk added to the shin guard. Even with my skinny legs it doesn’t look too bad so that’s a plus for someone who likes something a little more lowkey looking.
Don’t mind the grass btw I recorded the second part of this after I played a game in them so yeah…
Anyway from the front there is a little bit of bulk but it’s not too bad once you take a step back and look at them. It disappears even more once you pull your socks up but it does look less bulky from the side than front if that makes somehow sense.
After playing in them I can say the sleeves work well in combination with a firm sock but they will move once you start doing any serious running. So with that said, if you don’t want to worry about adjusting your guards every so often you may still want to carry tape in your bag.
Overall these seem like a decent shin guard, they aren’t re-inventing the wheel by any stretch and the best part for me is the look. However they should provide decent shin protection from your typical tackles.
So that’s all I have to say guys, thanks for watching. Don’t forget to like, comment and subscribe and until next time…see ya!
