So obviously, the football boots are the protagonist in this world of football gear. But why not tie everything up to those boots then? That is exactly what adidas have done with their shin pads.

If you feel good, you’ll most likely also play good. Today, feeling good on the pitch is closely linked to how you look. Is the design on point? Does your gear match up? Following that trend, adidas have gone on to design their Ghost Pro shin pads in the same colours as their primary colourways of the ACE 16.1 and X 15.1.

Obviously shin pads are an unavoidable part of your gear collection in your bag. But it doesn’t has to be all boring just because they are hidden away beneath the socks. Personally I love when my shin pads match my boots. So I would recommend going all in with the design any time.
