Daylight Robbery? The $700 shin pads

These are shin pads.

They cost $709.

That’s not a typo.

The justification for this? Well, they’re ostrich leather, but they’re also DESIGNER. And that, as every good fashion victim knows, is enough to make just about ANYTHING worth hundreds of dollars. Even shin pads.

Here’s how you’d wear your $700 shin pads:

Shorts cut for a giant, baggy shirt, stupid hat. OF COURSE.

Are you ready to buy them? They’re by Julien David: click here to go get ’em.

    Why would anyone (other than sports or fighting) need/want to wear shin pads and ostrich leather ones in particular?

    WHYYYYYYY? I just don’t get it! Shin pads imply sport that involves falling down and/or connection of a ball with your shins. Why would you buy ANYTHING for 700 dollars if they are just going to get muddy and sweaty?
