I received the Trace shinpads a few weeks ago and have played a few games of pick-up in them, as I wanted to give them a decent go before writing a review. I have to say I'm impressed! A bit of a breakdown
Packaging - standard plastic packaging. Nothing to write home about but if you're writing home about shinguard packaging there's something wrong.
Fit - I'm an adult male, 5'7, short-legged with pretty big calves. I was umming and ahhing about medium vs large and glad I got the latter as the fit is perfect. Comes to just below my knee and is a good tight fit. The medium would be too small I think. If you're unsure about sizing and don't have access to this product in-store, my best guess would be to try on some foam shinguards at a martial arts supplier. These are built very similarly. I also like the footstraps over normal slide -in-sock versions, and they haven't budged even after some robust running.
Protection - the key reason to buy these! The...
These are really fantastic shin-protectors. They come to just below the knee and also cover the ankle. The sheath feels a little tight around my calf, but that may be because my calves are quite developed. This is a well put together product that does exactly what it was designed to do - protect the shin and ankle. Very happy with these.
meh. Bought these and then returned them. They look nice but there is a plastic shield in the front that doesn't quite fit right. It might have been just a preference so I gave them a 3.because they might be fine for others.
