I have re-purchased these because they are the best. Very lightweight and only 2 straps, nothing around the back of the knee. Plastic clips so no worry about rust as they age. The metatarsal guards are removable. I was in Louisville and stopped in to pick them up and they had them ready.

Very good shin guards. They are very light and allow me to easily run around the field. I have taken cut fouls off them and felt nothing. My only gripe is because they do not have knee area strap so my pants get stuck in between the shin guard and my leg and that area of the guard is not tight around my leg, but it is no big deal and I am sure that if I tailor my pants a bit longer it will stop being a problem. These guards cause me no irritation so I am more than happy and love them.
This is my second pair of these shin guards. I Loved the first pair to death. These are great for youth league level or softball. They are very comfortable. My first pair took all the abuse I could muster and still lasted 8+ seasons.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||How do you measure for your size?|
– Isaac Jeffery
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 that you'll match up with shin guard sizes. It is best to pick a shin guard that measures as close to your size without going over. See the Fitting Room for more information and a video guide.– Ty Unthank
