The guard has shock-absorbing EVA foam padding and a tricot-coated plastic surface. Size options S–L. The sewn ankle protection provides cushioning on both sides of the ankle, which can reduce the risk of various ankle injuries. The guard is fastened in place with an elastic strap on the top of the calf.
Ankle and shin guards provide more protection for the leg than just shin guards and are therefore especially popular with novice and intermediate players, as well as defenders.
