I currently have the yellow G form shin guards and was thinking of getting the same in black.
They do leave gaps towards the side of the ankles of no protection though. Before I spend the money on these (as they are quite expensive) are there any shin pads you really like and I should consider?
Also any I should really avoid?

Ta!

awesome, a lot cheaper than G form too!
Any idea on sizes? I would normally go for a medium. The size guide is useless as it doesn't include shin pads.
Thanks!
