Protects shins against tackles; complies with standard EN 13061-2009.
Elastic band holds the shin pad in place.
70 g in size S
These shin pads were designed based on observations of young soccer players in training sessions and matches.
Tackles are a part of the game. These shin pads are made with a plastic shell to better protect you and shock-absorbing foam pad that reduces the risk of irritation.
They meet European standard 13061 concerning shock absorption and the shell's level of resistance.
1 elastic band combined with an ankle pad for a precise fit.
Wearing the support sleeve with the shin pad is essential.
These look great and well-made (but we've not used them yet) - I just wanted to help others who struggled because of Decathlon's failure to give an indication of sizing.
For our 5 and 6 year olds I took a gamble and ordered a pair in size XS (Extra Small - I guess) and a pair in size S (Small)
There is more info printed on these than the online description Decathlon provides.
Size XS - for children between 110cm - 130cm tall
Size S - for children between 130cm - 150cm tall
I hope that helps.
Does the job
Used for 2 week or less
I took a star off because of poor info on size for kids on the website. Decathlon staff was unable to clarify more on the phone. Size small in black fit my son who is turning 5 next month and they didn't have anything larger available for kids. The ankle strap is padded and quite snug which makes it slightly hard to put on. I could not get this on my 8yr old daughter. The bottom of the pad is attached by a small patch of velcro to the ankle strap and does not have a strap that goes around the calf. So, I think its not very stable but for a 4/5yr old it was fine. My son played an hour with this on and didn't complain although it did slip down once. But in retrospect I would have rather bought the version with straps around calf and no ankle strap.
