I molded my shins to fit my skinny girl legs better - maybe you could try this before giving up on yours?
Get a big tub that will just fit your shins and be able to get them completely submerged. Put your shins on, and put duct tape completely around them at a few places to get them as snug as you want them. Mark the duct tape with a pen so that you can take off the shinguards and then cinch them back up with the tape in the same way. Take out any inserts, put them in the tub and get a BIG pot of water boiling. Pour it over the shinguards (I had to use two pots of water to get them completely submerged). You will have to put something on top to keep them under the water. Let them come to room temperature for a few hours, and they should fit a lot better! I did this with my CCMs and I don't even need to use sock tape. But your mileage may vary!
