Best Brooks shoes for Men with shin splints

The Seattle-based Brooks is the number one selling shoe brand in running stores. This is because the running-only Brooks has stayed innovative while remaining true to the foundational success of its top styles, such as the Adrenaline, Ghost, and Glycerin. When a new runner wants their first running shoe, Brooks is often the perfect entry shoe since its award winning styles can fit almost any stride. And for the long time runner who has worn Brooks for years, there's no reason to try another shoe since the brand works great mile after mile.

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.
