These are the closest I could find, but they're listed as being for your arm. Don't know if they could also be used for your legs.

Also found these being listed as for your knees and shins..

I thought it was that one too @Mister916, but that one seems like it's more for your shin. Seems like that one's pad goes out wider and would have a harder time flexing with your knee.

In that picture the pad looks shorter and wider than the ones that Cole and D-Wade are wearing. Does it look different in person than on McDavid's site?

I'm 6'0 162, should I get a small or medium in those?
post #8 of 30
I commented on these the other day... there are two types.. the type Wade uses which go over his knees as he uses them for their function because Wade hits the floor alot.

Then theres the Shin kind that many players are using around the league moreso for looks than function. Sort of like the leggings one year and arm sleeve another....

Many of the players who wear these NEVER hit the floor during a game let alone hit their shins, so it cracks me up that soooo many see one wearing them and it catches on.

Jordans calf sleeve never really took off til Kobe wore it years later for a bit then tried the sleeve and the leggings too lol

I can only speak on the knee pair but I got a small and I'm 5'10 and they fight tight. Depending on how you want/like things to fit I would say get a medium.

I want the ones for my knees that Wade is wearing. But the ones that the two guys in here said that they were look like they're more for your shins. That's why I'm trying to figure out if they look different in person than they do on McDavid's site. I'm skeptical about getting a medium though cause I don't want them being too long and look like im rocking leggings. Not trying to have them go all the way down to my socks. The circumference around my knees measured out to 14.

WRONG.

Those shin/calf sleeves are worn to prevent cramps...they keep your calf muscles warm. They're not rreally worn to prevent direct contact from other players or the floor...

You got it mixed up bro...Rock's referring to these..

And you're talking about these...

The padded ones that he's referring to doesn't help with preventing cramps, whereas the ones you're referring to are the ones that Tmac and MJ rocked wore.


I wonder when Nike is goin to release these....

DWade does wear a whole suit. Padded vest, sleeves, compression shorts, and extended knee sleeves. Literally his whole body is covered in pads except his neck and head.

^^dont believe it. The padded ones DO NOTHING to prevent cramps.  I'm speaking from experience, I have both the padded ones and the calf sleeve.

The calf sleeve puts pressure on your calves so it does help with cramps by keeping the muscle constantly warm.

Sir sleeves without padding serve for the basis of what you speak of and also are made of a MUCH different material.

The sleeves you see above have a different elastic material used for moisture wicking but specifically are for the shins... and the ones Wade wears the Knee..

Thanks
