Best Hoka One One shoes for Women with shin splints

Born in the French mountains, the maximalist pioneer Hoka One One (meaning fly over the earth in Maori) has exploded in popularity in recent years. That's because the light, highly cushioned shoes are great for trail runners, ultra runners, or people simply looking for an easy, light ride. Today, Hoka One One is found in nearly every running store and is the most popular shoes at ultra marathons.

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.
