Best shoes for Women with shin splints who prefer stability support

People who pronate have their arches collapse inward when they run. There's nothing wrong with this--in fact, many of the world's best runners are pronators. The key is to find the right sneaker to help mitigate the issue. Stability shoes help overpronators by keeping the gait straight as the foot hits the ground. These shoes provide decent arch support and solid cushioning. You can find stability competition shoes, regular pavement shoes, or trail shoes.

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.
