I've had these for 3 years, and I've never had the problems that I had with other knee pads. I had the black/gray ones and was really disappointed to see that they only have White knee pads of these now. I'm always diving on the court and if I buy white oned they wouldn'te last long white. Would totally buy again.
I bought this product right before my start of the year basketball tournament and arrived the day before. This is a great product for players like me who dive for the ball and play tough at the post. It wasn't heavy or restricting, but I do recommend going a size up so you don't have trouble pulling them up. Only thing that could've been better was the durability. When I dove once the padded part wasn't entirely on my knee so the floor caught the side of it and tore a small hole by the pad. Overall would recommend this to any physical player!
These knee pads stay in place even after playing 3 straight games in a hot gym no tugging and repositioning after every trip down the court. Worn other brands that do not match up with these, only wish they came in Navy!
The texture and fit are nice just to bully, I will say o was looking to use them for socccer, ha. But they would be nice if I played volleyball, but as for basketball would ask for a little shape, and sleeker design
If you plan on buying these then I advise you to order a size up then what you initially think, and also order another one two sizes up (return shipping is free). The sizes are all over the place. I am about a 15" (5'11, 176lb) calf but the large was very tight. Then I ordered a XL and it's still pretty tight. Would've loved to try out the XXL but I need these for a game pretty soon and don't think I'll receive the other pair in time. Other than the grip on the sizing it seems to offer a good amount of protection and the pads flex to your movements.
They look nice but the quality is a joke. They might offer some minimal protection you if you bump knees with an opponent but if you ever go down and or slide at all on the floor they will not protect you at all.
My 14yo player has wanted these for awhile. They are hard to find - happy to find the Adidas direct store. He likes them a lot, the size small fits a 100lb kid well. Did not realize only 1 came in the package when ordered from our reg online sports store. Then they out of stock there again. Adidas store had the other one we needed at the same price. Happy with them so far.
I have torn my meniscus in both knees and after wearing these pads they feel great. I wear these over other knee pads and they give me great support. I'm not recommending wearing these pads alone if you have knee problems but they do feel comfortable. They run small. I'm usually an xl but these I had to get 2xl.
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 knee pads for basketball. They fit tight and just right. I went with a large just to be sure my calf is about 13 3/4 inches. Im 5'9 and they fit good. I just wished they were solid black but thats besides the performance.
This is a great knee pad. Great for basketball and athletic activities. Its very durable and comfortable. I bought these because my McDavid knee sleeves had holes and didn't look good :(( These are great and the real deal! so happy i bought these. I am a point guard for aau and travel so I have a lot of pressure in my knees so these helped a lot :) Great buy folks
DURABILITY & PERFORMANCE: My son has wore these to practice and games for a few months now and even took a very hard fall once and these have held up to the wear and tear. They haven't ripped and the foam hasn't come loose. PROTECTION: Overall they provide good protection, but for those very rare but very hard falls onto a hard surface it won't provide 100% protection. Despite wearing these knee pads, my son still got a big bump on his knee after that very hard fall. Thank goodness he was wearing knee pads or he would've had much more damage. FIT: We went according to the size chart and the fit was accurate. COMFORT: My son says these are very comfortable and do not restrict his movement. The fabric is very light weight but durable. In summary, this is by far the most durable and comfortable knee pad my son has tried. I would highly recommend these knee pads and plan on purchasing 2 more pairs for my daughter.
As someone who has had reconstructive knee surgery, I am looking for anything that offers support and protection without being cumbersome. While these are not a substitute for my brace, they provide a high level of support, protection and compression. When used in conjunction with my brace, I feel totally protected. If you have had knee problems or are just looking for lightweight padding and support, I highly recommend this sleeve!
The Adidas Graphic Kneepad fits great, gives plenty of support and protection and you don't feel sweaty. I purchased a medium for my son to use for his basketball games and it is perfect. No more bruised up knees. I'm very happy with the purchase. I do wish it would be packaged as a pair instead of only one. But the product is definitely top of the line.
Purchased item on sale...whoohoo!!! Good Material. The knee part is flexible and protected. Used it for volleyball, I dove on them a few times. Material might be on the "too flexible" side doesn't take the beating of that sport started to tear on the inside, the foam part, a bit. Also dyed the material using iDye Poly. It's not recommended to dye/boil spandex blends. But it held up pretty well with minor damage. Looks better now. Adidas you need more color options.
I really am grateful for the knee pad. I play basketball and I was constantly hurting my knees either fron fall or I sprained it. The graphic knee pad helps me whenever I play because of the padding and the compression.
The techfit knee pads does an amazing job in keeping you cool as well as staying in place. The quality is very durable and the technology implemented into the pads work for my type of game. The knee pads truly keep your knees protected and heated for when it matters most.
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...
Feels great around the knees. The pads are light and flexible. Provides awesome protection on your knees when playing basketball. I am also planning to use them as shin guards when playing pick up soccer.
I'm usually on my feet at work and take a lot of shock impact on the basketball court which takes its toll on my left knee. This techfit kneepad is very breathable thanks to the climacool graphics for the ventilation and it's comfort. Wherever I go, this kneepad goes with me.
Paid good money for these knee pads for my son and he wears them one game and it rips at the top of the pad in the seem. Will never buy these again. Guess I'll have to go back to the cheaper ones they last longer that one game.
With the becoming more and more physical, athletes should take advantage of this product. I use it because I have taken some nasty knee to knee collisions, and I just kept looking for a product that protected my knee, without limiting movement. I purchased it and I immediately felt in love with them. Not only does it protect me knees, but I actually feel more explosive and lighter on my feet. I can go in the lane without fear or taking shots to the knee. Thanks Adidas!!!
Overall this product is amazing. Great protection and they don't rip very easily. There is no difference between "M" and "MT" that I can see. I own a pair of both and I compared them. I would definitely buy these again but I wish they could make them $20-$30 a pair. That's the only downside. Other than that they are awesome.
These knee pads provide the support i need for my bad knees. They're very comfortable, don't restrict any movement, and look great. I bumped knees with other players while playing basketball, dove for the ball on the court, and even just tripped and fell on my knees and i they protected me. I strongly recommend these for anyone with bad knees, clumsy people, hardcore players, or for anyone who just wants a little extra protection/support.
Great fit. I'm glad I took the advice of the other reviews and went to a LT (Large). I would normally purchase small or medium. So I agree the sizing is really off in the description and you should probably go a couple of sizes up.
