Best shoes for Women with a bad back and shin splints

A bad back can ruin everything from running or basic household tasks. Luckily there are shoes, both for running and walking, that are meant for folks with bad backs. The most important thing is figuring out whether you need a stability shoe, a neutral shoe, or a motion controlled shoe. Second, it's important to find a shoe that has worked for people with bad backs. These athletic shoes are often cushioned, have great arch support, and allow for flexibility for your individual stride.

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.
