How To Choose Your Soccer Shin Guards?

When you play football, your shins and ankles are put under severe strain. They need to be protected against knocks and impacts.

KIPSTA offers a full range of protective products depending on the area you want to protect and the type of support you’re after. These products conform to the European standard for trauma limitation during impacts.

How to choose the right shin guards?



A Shin Pad is made of different parts (a simple shin protection, an ankle protection which is either attached or separated and a support sock.) You can choose your shin pads according to the type of protection and support you’re looking for:


For a simple shin protection, you may be looking for a product that can be quickly attached via 2 elastic bands which help to keep the shin pads secure and adjustable. For this, we recommend shin pads from our F200 range. You can use an elastic sleeve to keep the shin pad in place, providing extra support. For this, we recommend products in our F180 range. When wearing shin pads, don’t forget to use a support. It’s essential!




For enhanced shin and ankle protection (including malleoli protection), you may be looking for a product with an integral (but also detachable) ankle strap with a quick and easy elastic band fastener for a precise fit. We recommend choosing from our F140 product range. If you’re after a product that combines all these protective features and has sock fastening for optimal support, check out the F700 model. This model has 3 shin protection features which can be used together or on their own: a sleeve (which can be used on its own or with the protection pad), a protection pad and an ankle support (which can be used on its own or with the shin pad).
