Does anyone have a favorite shinguard and instep. That will not get loose and move around after 30 seconds of sparring.
I really jacked my foot up on what I thought was a good roundhouse until it was blocked with my opponent's knee. Bone on Bone.

Ouch, I hate when that happens.
I forgot the actual name of the ones that I used when I was competing but it is the type that fits up your leg and foot like a sock. The back end is a tough elastic that really hugs the legs and the front shin area and instep are thickly padded.
I do not know what kind you are using but that was what worked for me. I still have mine actually, back in the closet.

Most of my fighters use Windy brand cloth type shin guards. It has a velcro wrap on the top that secures the shin pads in place.

We're not allowed to wear those cloth ones for hard sparring where I train - we can wear them for drills, but not for real sparring. I have a pair of leather ones from Fairtex that I've never had issues with -- http://www.fairtexgear.com/html_docu...m.asp?p_id=153

Word of warning...Fairtexgear.com has very bad customer service. There is a thread on this topic on mma.tv

People are having their cards charged and they never receive the goods.

I have been using these shin/instep guards from Combat Sports in my school with no complaints.

They also offer a version for grapplers but I haven't tried those yet.
Good customer service from the company, my only problem has been with out-of-stock items and long waits.
