Best shoes for Men with shin splints

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.
