The R.E.D. ones have velcro straps, but they are lower profile.

I ordered the R.E.D ones from Dogfunk and after trying them on, I packed them back up and sent them back the next morning. I don't have huge calves but I do play basketball and even with the Large size I had trouble fitting and that stretchy stuff sucks.

I called around different moto cross and mtn bike shops and found these ones for $12.95... a hell of lot cheaper and better fitting too.

Not bashing you homie, but those R.E.D's suck big time!

I use motocross shinguards, alot cheaper and more selection. Plus I use them in the summer when riding my quad.
Also motocross boots are higher therefore the knee/shinguards are usually designed with that in mind, which should work for snowboard boots. Check here:
FOX

Those padded shorts might be a good idea as well....

Yeah, I don't know why I didn't look at a motorcycle shop first before ordering those MX ones.

I got the Shift ones but the Fox stuff look sick!

Bling Bling protection!

I got these Shift ones for $12.95 and don't have the lame sock type, just the velcro that wraps around your leg. The Fox ones are dope too and go for $15!
