Newby: knee guard question

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
