The reason for the poor review is the straps to hold the shin guard in place did not go around my son's leg. They are way too small.
His leg is a normal width, but I had to jury-rig the guard with a ponytail holder to extend the velcro straps.
It was an internet order and my son tried to make it work-- or I would've returned the merchandise. Reebok needs to go back to work on this new model.
