Is there a recommendation for shin pad size out there somewhere? I'm only 5'7.
I thought my pads fit fine until Saturday night...
Thanks in advance for the help.
easy solution TAPE THEM, problem solved, your pads will be fine when you start doing that. my recommendation, tape under the knee portion on your shin pad and b around your leg twice, works for me and they stay secure the whole game
