Try plastic shin guards for soccer. Baby powder always helps keep things moving as well.
Try wearing knee length socks.
Then a voice of reason enters:
duct tape, but make sure you have something between your skin and the tape if you're going to try this. Something like plastic wrap.
I'm not sure skinned up shins is a good reason to switch deadlifting styles!
I'd say you just have to deal with it. Baby power helps the bar move against your shins and reduces friction but don't try the shin guards. Can you imagine how that would look?
Have you tried sumo DL? I can only conventional DL about the same weight as stiff-legged DL, because my knees get in the way. I switched to sumo and I never hit my shins (and added 100# to my DL.) I still do conventional for warmups to hit the muscles differently.
