Best Answer

Opponents often kick them in the shins or tackle with their spikes, without shin guards players would often get hurt. Though players may sometimes complain about wearing them, is it extremely important that you always wear them. it doesn't take more than just a simple kick in the shin to make you realize why you should wear them.

To protect your shin when the other people attack you.

But in truth you are suppose to play the ball not the other person.

Until you take a hit to your unprotected shins you won't realize why they are so important. Never ever play soccer without them. it doesn't take much to injure your shins.

In soccer, people generally kick the ball to get it from point a to point b. Therefore, this kicking will potentially lead to someone being kicked in the shin. To avoid the pain or broken bones, they wear a shin guard.

Shin guards really help me from getting injured during games. They protect me from getting hit with cleats in the shin and ankle, which really hurts. They also protect me when I slide tackle, since they protect my shin from getting hit with other players' shoes.

Shin guards are worn under soccer socks because the socks keep the shin guards in place, right in front of the shins. If the shin guards were worn on top of the socks all shin guards without straps would not remain on and even those that have straps that go around the back of the leg will not keep the shin guards in place.

One of the reasons shin guards are so important is that the guards take most of the impact when one is kicked in the shins. These guards help prevent or minimize the damage that occurs from such contact.
