|Yeah, they are BLUE. The image shows some stitching which I will have to redo since some is coming out already and I just got them. They are WIDE and those are kiddies. The top strap is shorter then the bottom strap which is weird and its hard since the pads are wide to get the straps on. You can see how it bunches up. I'm not sure why he didnt shave down the sides. I'm not sure if I should complain........ I dont have an idea what will fit my arms either, my bones are very small.
