Best Nike shoes for Men with shin splints

The Portland athletic giant got its start making running shoes. A waffle iron and billions of dollars later, Nike is the worldwide leader in making, marketing, and selling running shoes (among other athletic products). In fact, the current CEO of Nike got his start designing Nike's most popular running shoe: the Air Zoom Pegasus. Over the years, Nike has continued to perfect its popular running line, developing shoes for every stride, every budget, and every style.

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.
