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
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" Thanks adidas!!
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.
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.
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*!!
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!!!
I've had these for about 6 months now. I always had trouble with my knees and so i bought these. They are great fit, love them when i drive to the whole and i dont have to worry about bumping knees with anyone. They pads are still in great shape, i use them weekly and love them.
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.
I actually use them more as shin guards than for my knees. I can't say they work great because I haven't ran into anyone yet while using them, but they feel great and double as leg wrap to keep my legs loose. Be sure to look for the person who commented with the size chart that is posted on the box of the product, because the website one isn't too great. It definitely helped me. They don't slow me down at all which is what worried me because I play at an up-tempo pace. Hard to comment on their durability til I've worn them more, but I'm pleased thus far.
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] :)
If you want to maximize your purchase, get your size in the the tall version (in my case, I went with a size LT instead of the regular L). The extend length acts as an added compression sleeve for your calves and if your games are fast-paced, these will help combat muscle fatigue. The protection is solid. The fit is the perfect snugness. The quality and durability is astounding. I have played in these for the last two weeks and they are holding up quite well.
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!
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.
