No science to back up no. But for a few quid on a pair of cheap calf guards, I thought I'd give it a try. I have found that it helped. Might be placebo effect, might not, I couldn't really care less. In the case of my compression shorts though, I don't think you can attribute no chafing to the placebo effect.
What have you tried then VDOT? You wouldn't be dismissing something with no experience of it would you?
