    Hey!

    I'm after a pair of shinguards. Anyone got any suggestions for a comfortable, lightweight, breathable pair, that just cover the shin area?

    Thanks!

    Why? It ****ing hurts if you get kicked on your ankle you know. Would imagine it's very easy to damage it too (wouldn't know, I always wear the ankle guards).

    Please! I know what I need! Otherwise I wouldn't ask!

    It's not for football, I have a genetic condition which make my shins super susceptible to injury, hence the request for shin pads. My ankles work fine .

    What's it for then? Just casual every day wear under your jeans and that?

    And just go to any sports shop and try a few on, I've seen newer ones that are like socks but they are more expensive, some have straps and some have nothing, you'd need football socks with those to keep em in place.

    If you're looking for something like this any shop will have them for about a tenner - http://cdn.soccerbible.com/media/805...ct_14_img3.jpg

    Yeah, pretty much.. My job atm entails a lot of walking around not-so-great terrain, and I've come close to injurying myself a few times, so need something comfortable and lightweight etc to wear while working!

    Okay, cheers! Those look pretty decent ^_^
