    A lot of the Thai brands shin guards are quite on the small side. Which ones would fit 18.5" calves? I was thinking of checking King/Top King up based on the reviews but have never tried them before. Thanks.

    Top King. They have long hook and loop straps that will fi you fine.

    Thanks. I was hoping the Top King would fit as the reviews on them are great. Are the old Kings the same? There is still quite a few of them floating around.

    Somebody had recommended Boon, but it seems they have a one size fits all only.
    Thanks.

    Yeah Top King is much better than the original King because of the hook and loop closure.

    The Boon shinguards suck IMO. They slip all over the place.

    I dont believe that they suck but I did have to modify my to fit my calves. I do have rather large calves so I had velcro added.

    I love the quality buy they do need to be a bit larger to be called 1 size fits all....

    I may sell mine a purchase some top kings.
