Best Answer

Professional soccer players are not required to wear any certain type of shin guard. Most soccer players in high level soccer, my team included, wear small tough shin guards that aren't bulky but still offer protection. I myself use Nike shin guards, but there is no official requirement for brand or type.

Some do, some don't. There are also shin guards that extends to cover the ankle as impact protection without offering significant support.
