Wilson MLB Platinum Umpire Shin Guards
After 3 seasons of messing around with umpire shin guards, I have landed on these. My Douglas pair wore out VERY QUICKLY and Squeaks like crazy at the D rings (Yes I've oiled, taped...blah blah) just too much work and I sounded like the Tin Man walking to the plate. So I ordered the Wilson and I am happy with these. I umpire at the High School level and after 50-60 games last season, they're doing the job.
A definite upgrade from guards I got with a starter kit!

Love these as you don't feel any shots taken but I will say some of the straps have dug into my skin some but based on other reviews, maybe I have them on too tight? Overall they are fantastic.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||How do you measure for shin guards?|
– Shawn Jeffrey
Good question Shawn. Measure your leg from the center of your kneecap down to where the shin guards will rest on your plate shoes. This will result in your shin guard size. More details can be found in the "Fitting Room".– Ty Unthank
