Hello! I've recently started practicing muay thai and since the equipment at the gym smells like an anchovy's snatch I have decided to invest in some glvoes and pads of my own. My main concern are shin pads (since I already bought cheap 10oz placeholder gloves). I've also decided that I'll be buying them at an eBay store (Fight Stuff UK) and they only carry stuff by King and Twins. Now I have already used Twins guards (the ones they have at the gym). The problem with them is that the foot part of the guard brushes against my toes and since I problably have a minor fracture in my left big toe and right second to big toe it's quite uncomfortable. But I think that can be circumnavigated if I buy a size larger than the ones at the gym. The Kings look flashier, have nice extras and extra padding. After buying the shin pads I'll buy new gloves in about a month or so (the same brand as the pads- so they would match which would be good in an esthetical way) so I'd like to know the main differences between the gloves also Focus: KING gloves and pads (pros, cons) TWINS gloves and pads (pros, cons) Thank you inadvance.
