    Hey, Gang:

    I got second-hand boots (Thor Mx) that protect up to almost my knees, and then I got knee guards, but they also have shin guards. What kind of knee guards should I get to use with high boots ? I can tuck the shin parts of the knee guards into the boots, but I don't think that's what I'm supposed to do.

    thanks, Greasespot

    I have TLD knee/shin guards that go down quite a ways. I always just tuck them into my fox forma pro boots and adjust the top buckle out a bit.

    Yes, they're supposed to overlap a bit.

    Put socks on
    Knee guards on
    Pants on
    Boots on
    Ride on
