Shin guards are covered entirely by the stockings and are made of a suitable material (rubber, plastic, or similar substance) and provide a reasonable degree of protection

Here are some rules to keep in mind. Soft cleated soccer shoes means rubber soled, no hard plastic screw in cleats, or similar. Soccer cleats (vs. baseball cleats) do not have a cleat on the toe.

North Texas Rules, page 45, 3.14.4 Players Equipment, http://www.ntxsoccer.org/Bylaws/ntssa_rules.pdf

A player must not use equipment or wear anything that is dangerous to himself or another player (including any kind of jewelry).
