Football Shinguards & Straps Frequently Asked Questions

Shin guards come in a range of sizes, but some footballers prefer smaller versions. This is usually because smaller pads provide greater mobility and flexibility. It’s important to ensure though that you get guards that are large enough to actually protect your shins in the event of a crunching tackle.
Shin pads are designed to protect footballers from injury, most notably the lower part of their leg, or shin. Shins are particularly vulnerable on the pitch because as well as being close to the area where any opposing player is likely to be going for the ball, the shins have little cushioning protection from body fat or muscle.
Children aged 7-14 will generally take medium sized kids’ shin guards (1-11.5 inch shin), while 12-18 year-olds may take a larger size (11.5-13 inches). When choosing, you should take into account their size.
