The reebok pair I tried on wouldn't even reach around, about 2 inches too short.
Anyone have this issue, any suggestions on brand/model?
The only 2 companies I'm aware of that make "adult"-sized 13" shins are Bauer and Warrior. IMO, the Nexus(and it's predecessor "pro series") fit the shortest yet widest in the Bauer lineup.
When looking at Warrior, make sure the label says "adult" 13 though as they also make a jr size 13. But IMO, Warrior's shins seem to run about an inch or so bigger than other companies.
