WHITEFISH, MT—One local company has found a market niche in a place many don’t even think to look: under other people’s socks.
Legend Soccer Co., based in Whitefish, manufactures and sells specialty shin guards for soccer players. They made their debut several years back but have recently seen their business increase sizably.
Sean Person and Roland Benedict founded Legend Soccer Co. back in 2014 and are now shipping shin guards all over the world, including to clubs in Europe and the United States that play at an extremely high level.
Their special, ultra-light bamboo shin guards were made here in Montana during an earlier development phase, but as they’ve perfected the design, they’ve begun to use a manufacturer with facilities in Grand Rapids, Michigan to keep up with demand.
