Step 1: Dig Into the Sock Drawer
have no fear... as long as there's winter in your area, there's a solution.
one that not only makes use of something you barely use... but also looks cool, makes a conversation piece, and puts your wallet at ease.
- boot socks
another benefit: the thick wool material keeps your calves nice and hot and loose.
Step 3: Look Awesome
the socks should fit snugly and nice over your shin guard and during the game you shouldn't suffer too much shift. you can still put a strip of tape around it... or use an old boot string or something for added stability.
side note: you can also use the long sleeves cut off of a shirt.. but they well be loose and need some tape or strings or something to keep them in place.
