I'm 10in shorter than the person these were ordered for and they barely cover me to my liking.
on October 31, 2014
I ordered these for a kid that is 6"2' who plays keeper and keeps getting cleated above the guard just below the knees. I got an extra large because that size is supposed to be 13in in length and meant for someone over 6ft. The actual guard was a mere 8 1/4" and only covered about 1/2 the kids shin. I'm 5'4" and they covered my shin adequately. I have since arranged to return them and given up on soccer shin guards, we are looking at some lacrosse stx guards but have bought some mma shin guards in the mean time.
I seriously don't understand why NO ONE is making a shin guard in the 9-12in range available. what are tall people supposed to do? seriously. I understand the in thing is small and light at the moment but when skinny pants were in they didn't stop selling regular pants. Why should shin guards be different? Some pros where them from ankle to knee.
I can't speak to this product's ability to take abuse but these seem sturdy enough. The ankle protector placement is good and comfortable.
