I bought these at a hockey festival last year and they were brilliant. I had no idea there was so many designs I am struggling to decide which ones but settled on my two favourite ones. Bring on the season :-).

Great product, very nice and comfortable. I do not mind the £17.99 price for a good product but I do object to a £3.99 postage cost, especially when they arrived with a 74p postage cost – that’s not on at all…!

Hi Wayne – Thank you very much for your feedback and very please that you like your Shinnerz! We wish we did not have to charge for P+P at all – there are various associated costs within p+p and we do keep this to a minimum. If you purchase on as a prime, you will get around this. We do print and manufacture in UK and the quality of Shinnerz is unrivalled. We are very grateful for your comments though.
Kind regards Sam

I bought shinnerz after seeing someone from my club wearing them, and I am so pleased with them. They dry quickly and make shin pads much more comfortable. The colours make me smile and everyone comments on them. They arrived really quickly too. I like to support Made in UK, and the quality is very good so it will be no surprise that I Highly recommend Shinnerz.

Thank you for speedy delivery of Shinnerz,. Now everyone will want them!

Our order exceeded expection by a mile. Team love their shinnerz, the product is amazing. Delighted to sign up to the affilate scheme, two people have purchased within an hour – that rocks! Very helpful company.

My daughter has worn these for the last couple of weeks and reported that her shin pads are much more comfortable to wear. For that reason I’ve ordered a second pair for my son. I don’t feel that I can wholeheartedly recommend these to friends though because the £3.99 charge for shipping (which actually cost £0.69 as printed on the packaging label) leaves me feeling a bit ripped off. It’ll certainly discourage me from ordering again.

Good product very imaginative designs, the envy of other players. I have three pairs already.


17/11/2013 at 10:47 pm

Good fit, stylish and comfortable, shinnerz do a great job. The club would like to order them as part of their kit.

My shins used to get itchy, but no more. :-)

Speedy delivery + My friends love them – we will get them for the team for sure.


09/12/2012 at 11:44 am 

Shinnerz are great inner socks they are comfy I love them so much I could wear them all day.


05/12/2012 at 3:40 pm 

Brilliant efficiency and I love my personalised shinnerz. It is just so hard to choose which ones to have. I now have 4 pairs and would not play without them (sounds cheesey as lots of people are saying that – but it is true), it is so nice not to have a shin guard clammy against your leg!

Thank you for your excellent customer service. You are without doubt the best online retailer I have ever dealt with. I would recommend Shinnerz to everyone. The inner socks speak for themselves – once worn, you won’t play without them. Thank you and Happy Christmas

I bought two pairs they arrived in seperate packages the next day. Very pleased, really comfortable and fit so well, wish I had found them before. Great quality – you can tell they were made in UK.

Perfect product and good website.

My 12 year old daughter plays soccer in North Carolina USA and had an awful rash under her shin guards. Shinnerz have eliminated that problem. They are a little pricey but given the result worth the investment.


14/11/2012 at 11:16 am 

Just bought 3 pairs as stocking fillers for kids, perfect and different!

My son started to get an irritation on his shins after player long periods of football. He sometimes had his shin pads on for a few hours at a time, the rash started to become itchy, so as a concerned parent, I tried to correct the problem by using off the shelf creams to help cure the problem. I even tried using bandages or a second sock, but the material just caused further problems and irritation.
After a game one hot Sunday, the rash became very sore, itchy and was spreading from his ankle to just under his knee!
We rushed him to the doctor, on the Monday who was amazed this has been caused by his football shin pads!
Steroid cream and bandages for three weeks and no football was the only way to allow things to heel.
Frustrating, upsetting and disturbing, I never wanted this to happen again, so I surfed the internet for information. I found, that ‘Shin Pad Rash’ (skin dermatitis) was a very common complaint, especially for young footballers and hockey players. Pictures and forums suggested that it was far more common than I first thought. I looked for an aid that would stop this happening again, and after trekking around every sports shop in the South East of England without any success, I turned to the internet and I came across a company based in Scotland. The only company that produce a product that helps prevent ‘Shin Pad Rash’

I spoke to and explained my son’s problem, they were really helpful and happy to help, so I ordered a pair of shinnerz aged 8-12 to see how they go. (after all I had nothing to lose.)
My son wore them for his first training session back, and found that not only were they extremely comfortable, but they even helped with the rash. After taking them off after his training session and examining both shins, there seemed to be no evidence of redness or soreness at all, in fact they looked better!! I was very pleased for my son as he was becoming dejected and depressed being unable to play. Now he has a large smile back on his face and he now makes sure his shinnerz are the first thing packed in his kit bag!!
Thank you to everyone at I will strongly recommend you!!

great product does exactly what it says – highly recommend them!


18/10/2012 at 1:27 pm

Got shinnerz today, can’t wait to wear them at training everyone else has them and thinks they’re brill!!!!

Shinnerz arrived and I love them. I have trained in them this week and the are great they dry quickly, so you don’t have that horrible hot sweaty leg feeling. I have had lots of compliments, so I think lots of my friends will buy them too.
My coach thought hey were great too as he usually wears two pairs of socks to play and was most impressed with this idea. He said it might make his toes less sweaty – YUK! Hope he buys them quick.

The Olympics have inspired me to get off my backside and I have signed up for a local 5 a side league. I found Shinnerz online and they will be perfect piece of kit to stop grazing on my shins


13/08/2012 at 9:58 pm 

I love my Shinnerz!!! Where have you been? They really are great and will really help me next season as I often get really sore shins

Just wanted to say thanks so much for such an excellent product!

My son suffers really badly with shin-pad rash usually and sometimes even bleeds if really bad. But since he had his camo shinnerz that has stopped and he even has a smile on his face! They really have made a huge difference to his game as he no longer is distracted by that rubbing feeling.

And my daughter loves the funky flower shinnerz. They look really cool and they also help stop the sweat rash and the ‘gross’ feeling of it rubbing.

If anyone is in any doubt, just try them – you’ll not look back!


20/04/2012 at 1:08 pm 

Thank you for my shinnerz, they are really comfortable and don’t slip. I love the colour! Well packaged too!

I am not a football or hockey player, I got them to wear under my calf length motorbike boots which chafe if worn for too long. It works brilliantly and I don’t have to ruin lots of tights anymore!


26/03/2012 at 9:54 am 

Brilliant service from start to finish! The Shinnerz arrived very quickly and will be tested out by my son tomorrow!

Lots of girls at my school flick their hair and stick their xxxs out at the coach.
I am small and I don’t suck up. We are all much of a muchness at hockey but I always get overlooked – I am not in the ‘cool gang’and never get selected even though I play really well. My Mum bought me some pink Shinnerz – I wore them and got selected! – WAY TO GO! LUCKY Shinnerz I highly recommend.

+++ Pleased. Great idea, I hadn’t seen them in this country, but have seen them on tour. You don’t notice you have them on, like silk underwear :-) smart.

VERY comfy I love my new inner socks, they feel great and look great too.


03/02/2012 at 8:57 pm 

Hydrocortisone cream used to make my shin pad rash go away. I haven’t needed it since I have worn Shinnerz. MAGIC. Like the neon Shinnerz


03/02/2012 at 8:51 pm

Now my coach likes it when my socks are down, he said we all have to wear Shinnerz so happy! Off my back

From no where my shins got an itchy and red bumps when I play. I know this is a common complaint and why so many people wear tubie grips under their pads. I didn’t have new shin pads or washing powder so no idea why it started. Shinnerz have sorted the problem! Awesome.


24/01/2012 at 10:49 am

Thanks again for the 1st team shinnerz for the club, everyone loves them and they look so cool when everyone takes their shinpads off at the end of a match!

My son always gets sweat rash from his shin pads, all boys are smelly and should have a pair, Shinnerz sorts the problem of rash and smell!
Highly recommend.

I have two children who have no problem with shin pads, and two children who I have a constant battle with rubbing shin pads, all the makes and sizes are very different fits and shapes. Shinnerz offer a great cushioning layer and certainly have stopped Tobias’s rubbing issues. They look great fun and my girls wear them for ballet too – much better than tights that always want to fall down!


21/10/2011 at 12:21 pm

I have worn two pairs of socks for years when I play hockey, to stop rubbing. Shinnerz are brilliant as my toes now don’t have all that sock round them getting heavy with moisture (sweat – sorry yuk!) but it’s true. A simple but very effective solution, wish I had found shinnerz sooner.


17/10/2011 at 3:12 pm 

Great to be different … but the whole team want them now – so an order is on its way. Glad to have a limited edition shinnerz, I love them.


03/10/2011 at 12:59 pm

perfect birthday present for my godson, thank you and delivered quickly too


20/09/2011 at 12:12 pm 

Great, got 2 kids who suffer from eczema and had real issues with shin pads rubbing, finally we have a solution – thank you!
