Here is a nice little OBO story for you;
An OBO dad bought the smallest OBO kit possible (OBO OGO XXS) for his Son age 7. However at this age the legguards were still too big.
At OBO HQ we got a request from dad for some foam and a few tips on how he could make smaller legguards for his son.
Check out the outcome of the custom kit below:
Custom XXXS legguard / OGO XXS legguad

Custom XXXS OGO
Custom XXXS OGO Kicker Tongue Grove
Here are dad’s comments:
“I did it! I created the smallest OGO legguards in the world, a 95%
copy of the original. Have a look on the pics I promised you (the original
is the bigger one on the right side, OGO-XXS size, also the kickers…).
The foam you sent me is fantastic. Bonding was no problem, I found a
fantastic glue. But shaping was a challenge…
My son is happy to have this equipment ready now!”
