So why would you ever buy a $160 pair of shin guards, its a question we get a lot on these Diadora Gamma Carbonios, but let me tell you, if you’ve recently broken or injured your leg, these are the only guards you’ll want to wear. They were developed for Totti prior to the 2006 World Cup as he had recently recovered from a broken leg and needed something that offered all over protection but remained lightweight.
Diadora answered his call, and developed the Gamma Carbonio. Its made of Kevlar, yes the same stuff they put in bullet proof vests, so its super strong, but incredibly flexible. It’s also the best soccer shin guard on the market for protecting your legs. Normally, you won’t get them for less than full price, $200, and they’re hard to find, but our friends at soccerpro.com have them for 20% off, and if you’re looking for them, now is the time to grab the best guard out there.
