very sore shins

Post by Willow 15 » Thursday 14 February 2008, 10:25

Does anyone know of any shops which do mail order and sell shintronics. I am going to Morzine next week and am very woried for my shins. I've had one day in my new upz with thermoflex liners, and while the boots were generally excellent my shins got a severe beating. If anyone wants to hook up for some carving that would be cool, I am in Morzine from 24th to 29th. Thanks
Ps 3 years I had some northwave 950 unused and took them to a charity shop because i thought i would never use them (gave snowboarding up for a while). Am i an idiot? yes.

too bad for the .950 ;)

sore shins: easy to solve with this trick i used with previous boots that were painful in the same area ( have thin forelegs...) just made this little drawing to explain quicker :)

Hope this helps!

I didn't want to cut up my old wetsuit.

Instead, I bought a pair of soccer shin pads and stuck the shin pad between the tongue and liner. Works great. Much cheaper than Shintronics.

I only use the shin pad on my back boot.
