Kukla's Korner Hockey
Entries with the tag: shoulder pads
Down Low Hockey was recently added as an advertising partner on KK, and so you may have noticed this photo (on the right) appearing on the site. Given the nature of the product, we asked the company’s owner and designer, Dave Lewandowski, to answer a few questions for us.
Can you tell us how the company got started?
I designed the shoulder pads for my senior project while majoring in Industrial Design at Wentworth Institute of Design in Boston. The response to the pads was received so well that I decided to start Down Low Hockey and get the pads manufactured.
A dislocated shoulder gave me the inspiration to design a better pair of shoulder pads since I switched from small shoulder pads to big bulky pads after the injury.
