Best extremely durable shoes for Men with shin splints

There are durable shoes and then there are extremely durable shoes. Extremely durable shoes can withstand pavement pounding and trail climbing. They're shoes that go past the traditional 300 mile replacement mark and allow you to get up to 600 miles. And while we wouldn't recommend giving them as heirlooms to your children, extremely durable shoes truly can withstand the test of time.

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.
