Best Running Shoes for Shin Splints
Those who suffer with shin splints know how debilitating they can be on a run. In fact, shin splints, or its official name, medial tibial stress syndrome, accounts for about 10 to 15 percent of all running injuries. More than that, up to 60 percent of conditions causing leg pain in athletes or runners have been attributed to shin splints! So, this is a common and dangerous issue. Which is why choosing the correct running shoe is important.
ASICS created a running shoe with Rearfoot GEL Cushioning to attenuate shock during the impact phase, allowing for smooth transition to midstance while running. This shock-absorbing technology does wonders for those prone to shin splints, helping to reduce the strain on your medial tibial bone.
This running shoe also features a removable sockliner to accommodate a medical orthotic as needed, to ensure the utmost comfort for those who need a little extra support in their running shoes.
Available in 11 different color options, this running shoe comes in both Regular and Wide widths for women’s half and full sizes ranging from 5 to 11.
