Keeping everything tidy adidas have dropped a trio of F50 Pro Lite shin guard updates borrowing the colourways and graphics of the new-generation F50 adizero boot line-up.

The "Solar Red", "Solar Green" and "Black/Ash" drops are in slip-in shield form and come with a compression sleeve, which supports blood flow back to the centre of the body and also eliminates the 2:55pm panicked rush for a roll of tape. The soft EVA backing and comfortable synthetic lining ensure the smoothest ride possible, let's face it, if you don't notice you're wearing them then they qualify as good shin pads. Simple.

The adidas F50 Pro Lite Shin Pads are available at online stockists including Pro-Direct Soccer.
