    Normally they will have a velco strechable strap for the user to secure it on to the leg.

    i used to wear socks over it, no need to secure as socks secure enough! My friend use rubber band!

    There is another kind shin pad together with ankle guard wear them like socks. then u put on ur socks so depend on what u wan!

    they're called athletic tape or gauze tape (make sure you get the thicker kind). they tear off rather easily without leaving any adhesives on the socks. I can't remember where I bought mine from but it's made by 3M and it's meant to allow you to either a) tape down the shinguards or b) *more importantly* do an impromptu ankle brace should you sprain your ankle!

    try checking it out at your local pharmacy/chemist.
    chicken fight!
