Second colourway for Neymar edition Mercurial Lite shin guards.

When you've got your own range of shin pads, that's when you've made it. Nike have given a second colourway to their Neymar Mercurial Lite shin pads. Nike's most popular pad has been given the signature treatment in honour of Barca's Brazilian forward and released in a new silver/yellow/black paint job.

Most players want just one thing from a shin pad - to hardly notice you're wearing them and that's why the Mercurial Lite guards are a favourite with amateurs and professionals. Lightweight, durable and simplistic, the Mercurial Lite's tick every box and the fact the Neymar editions look stylish is an added bonus.

If you're turning as many defenders inside out as Neymar does then you're going to get a good kicking once in a while. The Mercurial Lite guards are as solid as they get. The low-profile shell is bonded to a dense foam backing for excellent impact diffusion. The shin-guards have an anatomical left/right design so if they feel uncomfortable then you've probably got them on the wrong legs.

What do you reckon, fancy a pair? Let us know. Join the conversation on Twitter and on Facebook.
