    I use my New Fairtex shinpads now for sparring and bag work. However with bagwrok especially no matter how tight I make them they always slip to the inside of my legs and I cannot pull them up without taking off my 16 ounce boxing gloves and it takes a while which is real bad. Do any of you have any tips to keep them in place, this s becoming more and more frustrating!

    Why wear them with the bag training? I would just use them for sparring.

    Don't use for bag training, condition your shins big guy.

    For sparring, make sure, on the two elastic bands on the bottom of the shin pads, that one of them is behind your achilles tendon and one is on the bottom of your foot.

    If you have skinny bottom legs, like me, you can tape it... but mine aren't that skinny.

    Yeah no kidding and drink some milk. You will need to tape them for sparring sometimes. This happens to all leather shin guards.
