Best shoes for Women with plantar fascitis and shin splints

Plantar fasciitis is caused by an overloading of the connective tissue that runs from top of the foot to the heel. Although overuse and poor foot structure can lead to the issue, wearing the wrong shoe for your foot type and gait can cause pain in the plantar fascia. A super cushioned sneaker can often ease the problem, as can simply replacing a shoe that's already well-trodden.

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.
