All-Star Cobalt Umpire Shin Guards
Official Review: All-Star Cobalt Umpire Shin Guards
Extremely lightweight and easy to move in. However, I’ve taken multiple shots this season with them, and the protection is lacking.
These feel great to wear and are definitely slim. They are not the most protective guards though. I have taken two hard shots directly off the shin and knee that not only did I feel but left bruises.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||How can you attach a detachable top foot protection to this shin guard? I have an older shin guard that you can leave or remove the top of foot protection that uses Velcro that allows you to leave or remove the top of foot protection. Thanks for your help with this.|

Some engineering to sew in a Velcro strip to the back side of the Cobalt padding. The System 7 Single Knee and the Double Knee umpire shin guards have the opposite Velcro strip behind the raised plastic plate. The Cobalt's minimalist design has the plastic plates sewn shut all around to the padding, not allowing a Velcro strip to be placed.– Ty Unthank
