The latest edition of the Kanpeki Shin Guards are, as you likely already know, gorgeous. Built from vintage finish full-grain leather with reliable padding throughout. Hayabusa doesn't just pay mind to the aesthetics, as they've introduced multiple new features on top of the typical striking shin guard.
Angled upper edge provides the maximum amount of protection without bumping into your knee cap or impeding your leg mobility. Sectioned padding over the instep "gap" means that the gap is no gap at all. . . Rather, there is a virtually seamless layer of padding over your shin, instep, and everything in between. Rippled padding at the lower shin aids in your overall movement and comfort. Dual straps provide a stable fit and result in virtually zero shifting while you spar.
