Soccer Shin Guards
Protect yourself from those mistimed tackles and challenges with good shin guards. Pick the right ones that are happy with and feel comfortable under your socks.
A good pair of shin guards can last many years.
Adidas Pro shin guards are top quality and they look cool. Compact and light, these guards feel comfortable and fit nicely around the shin
Awesome design with a choice of colors, you’ll be ready to tackle without any fear of getting injured.
They are flexible with lines on the molding – this also helps the shins breath and reduces sweat.
Shin Guards + Ankle Protection
My favorite shin guards are Nike Charge. Maybe it was my ankles, but I prefer guards that support the ankles. After a number of ankle sprains, I always felt more comfortable wearing these.
There is extra protection with padding on the ankle bone. The guards themselves rap around the shin and cover a good area without being restricted.
The other bonus to this shin guard is the strap that goes underneath the foot – this keeps the guard in place and you rarely have to adjust them – unlike the slip-on ones.
Put the shin guards in a tight netting bag and keep to a low temperature of 30-40.
Socks are there to support the shin guards, so you should always wear soccer socks.
For slip-in shin guards, you can use tape that goes around the calf onto the guard. For reduced movement shin guards, buy ones with ankle support and a strap that goes under the foot.
