FAQ Shin Guards For Kids

What size shin guards for kids?

The size of a shin guard depends on the height. If your child is shorter than 120 cm, he should wear shin guards in size XXS. After that, use a new size for every additional 20 cm. So children from about 120 – 140 cm wear size XS, with a height of 140 – 160 cm S, and so on. However, some manufacturers also make their own specifications for which body size their shin guards are suitable.

How to put on shin guards?

It depends on the model. Normally, you slip your foot through the ankle protector and place the protective plate against the shin, where it is then fixed. Then the socks are pulled over it. The shin guard should be worn so that it does not interfere with running, shooting, etc. and does not restrict movement

Which shin guards do professionals wear?

This varies from player to player. In most cases, professionals wear shin guards of the same brand that supplies them with shoes, e.g. Adidas.
