Product feature
  1. Which size?
    Place the shin guard as low as possible on your leg so that your ankles are well covered (make sure there are no pressure points and your ankle can move freely). Ideally, the top of the shin guard should come to 2 cm below your kneecap. Your shin guard should fit snugly around your calf without being too tight.
  2. Safety tips
    Hockey should be fun. Play safely. Always wear your mouthguard, shin guards and a glove. Use hockey shoes with protective reinforcement and soles designed for your playing surface during matches and training.
  3. Protecting your legs
    A shin guard is a piece of personal protection equipment. It should meet current regulations, including the PPE regulation (EU) 2016/425. Use a shin guard that was specifically designed for field hockey. A field hockey shin guard has two features specific to the sport: it covers the ankles and provides wide coverage around the legs. Football shin guards are not suitable for field hockey.
  4. Protecting your legs (cont.)
    It features a moulded plastic plate that is generally lined with foam to absorb impacts. Replace your shin guard according to the manufacturer's indications or as soon as it begins to show signs of wear. Refer to the product user guide in case of questions.
  5. Design
    Hard plastic shell to cover the shin. Lined with hard foam to cover the sides of the leg. The ankle guard is stitched in place and has small plastic shells on the front and sides, lined entirely with low-density foam and synthetic fabric. There are holes for ventilation. The ankle guard has an elasticated strap that fits under the foot.
  6. Design (cont.)
    The product stays in place with an elasticated rip-tab. Not left/right specific.
  7. Manufacturer's description
    Highly popular high impact plastic shell. Shock absorbing high density foam lining. Fixed soft ankle disc and Achilles padding. Ideal for young club / school players.
  8. Information
    The information here was provided by the manufacturer or observed by our teams from samples received from the manufacturer.
  9. Care advice

  • Grays Hockey Shin Pads

    Used for 1 week or less
    These are good shin pads at a decent price. Time will tell how long they last but they are comfy and stay in place which is a good start! The elastic strap looks a bit flimsy but has done the job so far.
    Response of the brand

    Great to read the feedback thank you! It sounds like it is going well, but if you have any concerns please remember you have a two year guarantee just in case. This is accessible via your Decathlon Card, if you are unsure how to use this let us know. 

    Otherwise enjoy and we hope you have a good season!
