Graphic Knee Pad
A must buy if you play basketball!
I ordered two Large Black adidas Techfit adiPower Padded Leg Sleeves and I'll be ordering more. Since I needed a padded knee sleeve for both my knees, these do more than a good job. I torn the ACL in my right knee 10 years ago and these Padded Leg Sleeves give me the compression support, as well as, the protection from the padding to play basketball everyday. After playing with these padded knee sleeves for hours the pain in both knees has been reduced by at least 80% in the hours after taking them off. On top of these good qualities, the Graphic Knee Pads are an officially licensed product of the NBA and worn by Derrick Rose and many other NBA players around the league. The fit is great, with minimal sliding down your thigh and calf. Just make sure you wash them on delicate cycle in the washer and hang dry after so they last. 5-stars across the board and a must buy for anyone that plays basketball and other sports as well.

Great support and cush for osteoarthritis in knees
My has osteoarthritis in his knees. He needed support and protection from constantly bumping them etc. He loves these! Not only does he leave home without them, he doesn't leave the bedroom without them upon getting up.
He is happy that he can now wash dishes without worry about bumping his knees on the shelf below and wincing in pain. He fallson occassion and lands on his knees and they are always banged up. The support gives him a lot more confidence and he hasn't fell once since he has had them.
He is even able to kneel for the first time ever to help bathe his toddler .. and the dog.
Great purchase Mom [that would be me] :)

Great purchase glad i bought
This knee pad is great I play ball for my high school team and in a game i went up for a lay up and i got laid out landed and on my knees. So I decided to buy these pads. I wish it came in a pair though because i had to buy two. The first day I got them I wore them to my game and bumped knees with someone coming off a screen and i felt little pain due to the pad. I had planned on only wearing them until my knees stop hurting but i got used to playing in them and now i don't play without them. Definitely recommend you purchase these

This is a good product but I don't like how there is only one sleeve per pack. I need a pad for both of my knees so having to spend $40 just to be protected is bad. I wish these were like the McDavid pads that come with two per pack for only $30. I think this is a great product but I think they should come with two pads per pack.

Poor sizes for big guys 6,3 real bummer
I order 2 pairs of black knee pads 2xt I tried them on and they were long and didn't go over my knee very well, they kept falling down and rolling down when I flexed my knee I was really disappointed, Adidas didn't think about there big basketball players because they slip right off. They don't actually cover the knee at all because they roll down. The shipping took two weeks and the box came kicked in :( I don't know if I should even bother sending them back...

When I'm not using these kneepads for basketball or volleyball, I can garden in them or use them as shinguards for soccer. If you want to know more about the sizing, measure the circumference of your calf. S=11"-13", M=13"-14, L=14"-16, XL=17"-18", 2XL=18"-20"

Good product, poor online sizing description
product is great, the sizing is inaccurate on the product page. I docked a star since the sizing is so incorrect, I had to pay $20 just in return shipping since i had to reorder twice.
I'm 6'6", 195lb. I ordered a Large initially given that my calf is 15.75-16", I couldn't get the Large on. Returned for XL and is still pretty tight. I would probably go with XXL if your calf is 16" or larger, I would prefer XXL myself.
The sizing on the box is better, describing sizing up to XXL but still isn't accurate, saying that a large fits a 15.5" calf. I disagree. Either way, it's the thigh part that was way too tight, if you had large thighs, order size up.
I feel the sizing info is misleading since I wear a Large of the same product for the GFX Padded shorts. I shouldn't have to order Large for one and XXL for the other.
Product review: not much to say here, it's what you would expect though I'd prefer a bit more padding length.
One more thing: no clue what the XLT vs XL means. The product packaging is all in French and doesn't mention what the T means in XLT so not sure. I wish adidas cared more about this stuff, really annoying to spend money to return a product due to them neglecting to provide proper info.
My advice; order larger than you would expect.

Wow! Simply amazing product! I felt a difference in my performance wearing these. It gave an extra bounce in my step! Only down fall (not the product), the sizing on the website are horrible in comparison to the back of the labeling of the product! Please fix that in the future *Adidas*!!

Fits perfect, if you have a wide calves then you possibly need to upgrade to another higher size to fit them pads.
