The range of football shinpads
There are many styles and types of shin pad which include different features that can be ideal for added comfort or just personal preference.
Some considerations when buying a new pair of football shin pads are purely practical. Consider the budget you have available to spend, as whilst shin pads are a relatively inexpensive addition to your football kit some brands and designs can carry a much higher price tag than others.
Another practical thing to think about for your next pair of shin pads is size. Contrary to popular belief they are not a one size fits all item so it is worth having your measurements to hand so you can carry out a quick check before choosing.
The next and final consideration before simple aesthetics is what style and type of shin pad you'd like. Each one has features and benefits and whilst you may not be spending a fortune it's worth making sure you choose the best ones for you. Ankle protectors are popular with many for that bit of extra security in case of an accident or even a slip or trip, but some dislike the bulky nature of shin pads with ankle protectors .
Slip on football shin pads are the most basic style and simply slip into your football socks . Many players prefer their simplicity and ease of use and may even choose to tape them on if they want to be sure they'll stay in place or have worried about them being dislodged during the game.
The last option is to choose a happy medium between these two styles - a pair of shin pads which can be secured using a sleeve.
