The sizing chart is not realistic based on the actual size of this product. I ordered a Small for my 3.5 year-old son, who is below-average in weight and a little below the 50th percentile in height at 3'3". The height of the shin guards is admittedly perfect for him, but the strap that goes around his calf seems too tight. Although I can close it, he immediately complains that it is uncomfortable. Given how small he is for his age, I expect some of his larger peers would not be able to use the calf strap at all.
Oddly, the stretchy strap around the foot is very loose and seems made for a much larger foot.
We can get some use out of this given his small size, but I can't imagine that the shin guards will continue to offer enough coverage as he moves from 3'3" all the way to 3'10". If your young child is taller and larger, I don't recommend starting with the small.
Having 3 young boys... I'd recommend the following sizing:
The Medium fits a 2-3 year old.
The Large fits a 5-6 year old.
The Extra Large fits a 7-8 year old.
They are made with a soft neoprene? lining, with a hard shell.
I see a few review that complain that these are smaller than some of the competitors, but to me they are just right. They protect the area from just above the ankle on up to about 3/4 of the way up the boys legs.
If you are ordering shinguards for your child, you may want to size up. Also consider spending a few more dollars to order them through prime, which should allow you to return the item if the website description was in accurate. Once we had the size large, they fit perfectly and my kids love them.
These shinguards are comfortable, wrap under the foot, have a padded area to cover the anklebone and a strap to secure them to the upper part of your calf. These are not as bulky and wide as some shinguards are, yet still protect very well. Just be careful when selecting the size and check the sellers return policy!!
EVEN IF YOU ARE ORDERING FOR TODDLERS, BEWARE...
We have a 3 year-old so I figured we were safe with the SMALL (age 2-4) as all the measurements fit him. The length of the shin guards is fine...however the elastic strap is VERY tight on his legs. He has skinny legs (he is about 50% for weight and height) and there is no reason they should fit so tight.
We are using them anyway, and just letting the socks hold them up for now since we had already let him play in them a few times before we decided they were indeed painfully tight on him.
