Just like soccer cleats, shin guards have gotten lighter and faster in recent years. The perfect example of that is the Lionel Messi-inspired adidas Pro Lite Messi Shin Guard.

A part of Messi’s signature collection, the Pro Lite shin guard features a two-part construction that includes a compression sleeve for support and a durable plastic shield for protection. The slip-in design allows for better flexibility, and eliminates the hassles of strapping.

The shin guards come in sizes ranging from XS to XL.
