Here’s some honesty- these shin guards are actually pretty amazing-the way they contour your shin, the level of protection they offer, down to the coverage. Far superior to many of the top name brands you see on the market. My ONLY gripe with these, are the seams. The straps tend to rip pretty quickly-Within a month or so usually. It’s an easy fix-I just use hot glue on mine. If they were just a tad bit less pricy, it would more than make up for the lack of durability in the straps. Also, maybe if they came in white with black trim? That would be pretty sweet also, but what would win these a 5 star vote would definitely be better durability of the straps. If you know someone who can sew, no problem-just stitch them up with some high tensile string, but otherwise I absolutely love these shin guards.
