Innovation for Soccer: 
Sustainable Shin Guards.

Swiss Wood Solutions developed the first shin guard to be made from wood. Even professional soccer players appreciate the lightness of this product compared to conventional shin guards, its aesthetic design and its extremely robust quality. The material used is sourced from sustainably managed European forests. 


Sustainable Shin Guards: 
Maximum Benefit for Athletes and Sports Clubs.

Ambassadors in These Environmentally Conscious Times

By using the resource-conserving shin guards, soccer players and their clubs and associations can highlight their environmental conscience. A club or association logo and other messages can be printed on the shin guards on request.


The multilayer wooden shin guards are padded on the inside, making them extremely comfortable to wear – even over long periods of time.

Lightweight and Strong
for Improved Sporting Performance

The sustainable shin guards are remarkably light and slim, but also extremely robust thanks to the densified wood. They offer top-class protection and freedom of movement to support the player’s performance.

in Practice

The shin guards were rigorously tested by professional soccer players and high-ranking amateurs during training and actual games.
