Made from hard and durable plastic these shin guards were created to protect the field player from any popped up ball or stick gone astray. The plastic is wrapped in a cloth that allows for comfort and extends to cover the ankle, a place not covered by many soccer shin guards. Designed to mold to the player and slip in under the socks these shin guards are easy to clean (machine wash gentle- no drier) which will be a relief to player and parent alike. Should fit so the top of the shinguard is two to three fingers below the knee and so that running is unhindered. Great protection that won't break your bank!
