All Star shin guards. Broke them out in the Fall of 2018. Used in a few tournaments.
Then used during indoor winter workouts on turf 2018-2019.
Used last year for 3 months of school ball and 5 months of travel ball. Also used the last 4 months of winter training inside on turf.
Basically, they are about 18 months old and been used heavily. And, now, they are just about totally trashed, worn out, stitches and bindings shot, etc., with almost no life left to them.
Is that the reasonable expected lifespan of shin guards? (Not complaining. It breaks down to about $11 a month. Just wondering.)
