Best shoes for Women with shin splints who need good support

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.
