So it seems pretty obvious that your problem here would be the strapping system and the fact that they came loose during play. It's very hard to judge and compare top/mid line shins in-store because they would all 'fit' ; the only way to tell if they cna shift or not is during play.
However from what I've seen, the TotalOne shins have a great/elaborate strapping system which is enhanced by the liner wrap :
It sure didn't feel nice at the beginning, my knee swell to three times its normal size. They misdiagnosed it, so I was working and doing stuff I shouldn't have for four months, so I had surgery last month and now just starting to heal. It's been pretty sore lately, but that's probably due to the physio and healing.
I e-mailed a big hockey store in Vancouver, and asked them about the RBK 11k's, they seem to be really good and I'll hear back from them tomorrow morning.
