Tremendous set of umpire shin guards. Looking forward to breaking them in fully for the 2021 season. Also, great staff at Ump-Attire.com as I had to order and return a pair to get them as a Christmas gift.
They feel great. Nice and soft.
I have only word these umpire shin guards once but they were very comfortable. I originally ordered the wrong size and had to return for the next size up. The return process was easy and the correct size shin guards arrived before my next tournament.
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
