Best Asics shoes for Women with shin splints

Over the past 30 years, Asics has made some of the best running shoes on the market. The Gel-Kayano, Gel-Cumulus, and GT-2000 series have been three of the best selling running shoes on the planet. That's because Asics' long commitment to quality and wear testing has produced shoes that runners get hooked on--and never want to take off.

SShin splints can be the nemesis for many runners. The injury often arises from being in the wrong running sneaker or a shoe that is well past its mileage expiration date. Finding a shoe that fits your gait and your stride is key; but so is knowing which shoes help other runners battle and prevent shin splints. That's why we at ShoeKicker polled runners to find the shoe that improved their shin splint.
