Bigger Shin Pads

Hey guys. I'm 6'4 and my legs are extremely long. I wear 17 inch shin pads but no matter what pair I get my legs always look extremely skinny. I know this is because I do have skinny legs but i'm just wondering if you guys can tell me what brand of shin pads are widest. I wear CCM right now which are much wider than my old skinny bauer pads. Which brand look thickest?

I feel like my Warrior Bonafides are pretty wide without being intrusive.

why do you care how thin your legs look lol

i'm 6'7 but pretty thin and wear 17 inch supreme 75s

i think they're pretty big

i don't know you'd want wide shin pads with skinny legs anyway in terms of fit

Reebok 8k pros are just about as wide as they come.
