Guess I just have an abnormally small shin? lol?
I guess either way I'll exchange them for a 13" and see if it helps
as long as your knee cap is sitting in the center donut of the knee pad, then i'd say the length is perfect. looks like either you don't have your pants pulled up all the way or they're too long/big for you.
