Nike J Shin Guards

Posted August 1, 2018 |

A minimalistic design for a minimalistic player, looking for a lightweight, well ventilated, and simple shin guard.

Although this shin guard doesn't provide much protection, that is what it's made to do. Don't get me wrong, this shin guard is a solid product from Nike, however, this shin guard was specifically made for players who don't like wearing shin guards. Made for players who are not really concerned about protection, and just want a super lightweight and small shin guard that gets the job done.

Tech specs include:

  1. 37 grams
  2. 80% polyethylene / 20% EVA
  3. Anatomical shape
  4. Soft EVA Foam

The Nike J Shin Guard has a thin plastic shell that is flexible and able to mold to the shape of your foot. The shape is anatomical to your shin, allowing for excellent comfort. Despite the fact that the shell is thin, the durability doesn't suffer and will last you quite a while. The foam on the back-side is made from a sponge-like foam that absorbs shock quite well.

You may have noticed that the surface is covered with multiple holes and the reasoning behind that is to allow for the lowest weight possible and a good ventilation. This shin guard is great for people who feel a lot of heat in the shin area.


  1. Very Lightweight
  2. Well Ventelated
  3. Great Value
  4. Flexible and Anatomical
  5. Simple
  6. Comfortable
  7. Durable
  8. Good Quality


  1. Not Much Protection


As a whole, with the extremely low price of $10 you shouldn't expect anything highly impressive. The thin, flexible, and lightweight shin guard won't provide too much protection with its fairly small size. Although, if you are looking for something just like that, this is currently the best offer at its price.
