Protective Gear

Most sport safety gears focus on the knee and elbow protection, but only few designs for foot ankle and thenar protection for the skate board player can be found in the current market. This design is meant to provide a safe and adjustable foot ankle and thenar protector for the skate board player. With the proof against friction, elastic and soft rubber material, this design is easy to wear and compatible with the worn shoes. The inner red color component appeared when the outer parts were worn out to remind the user to renew the components.
