There should be a version of these that have thicker/ more protective padding.
My son has never liked padded shorts except for these! We actually just ordered him another pair- thanks for always thinking of goalkeepers!
Bought these shorts for my teenage daughter. They run pretty tight, so we had to return them for an adult large. She's above average in height, but it was a surprise that she needed a large. Customer service was good during the exchange process. The new shorts were turned around pretty quickly. She got them the day of a futsal tournament and they went right into action. She appreciated the padding on the hard gym floor! Would recommend these for those looking for some extra protection.
Daughter loves these new gloves. She wore size 8 in nike and the size 8 in west coast is a little small but still works.
So order a size up if coming from nike
