Score more digs and dive after every loose ball in the MIZUNO® LR6 volleyball knee pads. The 6" sleeves offer patella, lateral and medial protection and were constructed using VS-1™ padding to help absorb shock in these high-impact areas of the leg. DFcut™ technology and the addition of foam rubber on the sides allow them to flex despite their snug fit for an unrestricted range of motion.

I bought these on the advice of a friend who has a PhD in Physical Therapy to protect my tibial tubercles (bony growth bumps below patella) and support my knees/patellae so I can do Yoga, Pilates etc workouts. They provide excellent support and the padding is amazing for my "bumps"! Regarding sizing: I am almost always a "Small" in every aspect, but an employee warned me to purchase size Medium and I am glad I listened. The Mediums fit a bit snugly, but will stretch a bit I am sure with use.
My daughter and son play competitive volleyball and will only wear these knee pads. They have the best protection from the several brands tried. They do run a bit small but you want them snug so they don't slip when diving and will stretch a bit over time. We throw them in with the wash and let them line dry. We replace them before each season (before school season and before club season). Save your knees for adulthood. Don't over wear your knee pads!
Purchased these knee pads for my Grandson, a High School volleyball player. He loves them, and says they have really saved his knees from bruises and scrapes several times already. They are light weight and move with his body, almost like a second skin.
