Soccer Protective Gear

What Protective Gear Should Soccer Players wear?

Like other competitive team sports, playing soccer does carry the potential risk for injury. Protective soccer gear is designed to minimize a player’s risk of injury without compromising their performance. Injuries to the lower limbs account for the vast majority of battle wounds in soccer. Shin guards are the main line of defense against these types of injuries and are required equipment for games. Guard stays are another helpful item, keeping shin guards in place. Other helpful protective gear includes medical supplies such as tapes, blister pads, straps, and braces for both preventative and responsive injury needs. Finally, players often must contend with Mother Nature. Warm gloves protect players from the cold during those late-season games.

Soccer Shin Guards

Every soccer player needs the protection offered from a good pair of shin guards. We carry a wide range of sizes from the brands you trust like Nike, adidas, Diadora, and Puma. Players can choose from either slip-in shin guards that fit into a compression sleeve or a full-length shin guard. Full-length shin guards often come with ankle guards for another layer of protection. Regardless of the particular design, be sure to choose a pair that fits. Each of our product pages has a full sizing description. And, for those playing high school or college level soccer, be sure to look for the required NOCSAE approved shin guards. And, like every product we sell, even our shin guards are customizable.

Guard Stays

Guard stays help you keep your mind on the game and not on keeping up your shin guards. Newer rules specify that all college, high school, and even many youth leagues are required to have matching socks and guard stay colors. All of our guard stays are reversible and can be matched to your specific color. Customize them even more with team logos or names (teams contact us for special bulk pricing). You can count on our extra durable, strong elastic guards to hold up under heavy use, not fraying in the wash or losing shape.
