The best selling shin pad we do has continues to be the best for quality, protection and price!
Mercian has improved both the fit and protective qualities of the inner plastic shell on the popular Anatomica shinguard. The lightweight construction of foam over plastic creates a comfortable, lightweight yet very protective unit, capable of being used at all levels. New shell shaping gives greater calf protection and impact absorption; the two colour options also enable the more fashion conscious player to mix style with protection!
Shin guards should cover the length of your leg, from ankle to knee minus one - two inches. They should offer maximum protection while at the same time not hindering performance of the hockey player.
Some shin guards come with ankle protection to provide added support to this area of the foot and are slipped on like a sock with an elasticated strap underneath the foot the sock is then pulled on over the shin pad.
Other shin pads just have the shin bone protection and are generally placed down the front of the sock. Most hockey players wear 2 pairs of sock one against the leg the other is pulled up over the shin pad, this can prevent irritation and allow a little air flow between the leg and the shin pad.
Care & Advice
The best advice we can give players who wear shin pads it to remove them as soon as their activity is finished, this prevents the legs from sweating and getting irritated.
Once at home it is best to take your shin pads out of your bag and air them, but do not place them on a radiator or somewhere very warm as this could dry out the shin pad and possibly lead it to crack and break.
