Frequently Asked Questions

I just put my Bee's Knees on for the first time and they feel kind of… stiff. Is that normal?

Completely. At first wear, it’s normal to be unsure, especially if you are used to regular volleyball knee pads or not wearing knee pads at all. Bee’s Knees Knee Pads are made differently than other knee pads. You know how volleyball knee pads feel pretty good at first, but after two weeks, they get too loose and fall flat? Bee’s Knees Knee Pads work the opposite way in that you have to break them in.
I recommend wearing them for about 5-10 total hours or two weeks, whichever comes first. Wear them over leggings while you break them in, or remove the pad inserts and run your BKKPs through the washing machine in a Dirty Magic Bag to soften them up. Just like new heels or your favorite jeans, you gotta break them in! General use, body heat, and sweat make Bee’s Knees your own.
