Best Running Shoes For Shin Pain
CUSHIONING: Asics excels in cushioning, nimbus or cumulus (think clouds.) these will hold up over mileage. Mizuno wave is also a good choice. New balance has a few in their higher end. You will still need good pronatory control from an orthotic or a firm insole. Stretching is also key in the prevention of shinsplints. ...Read more

Does wearing a sleeve while running help comfort the pain of shin splints or am i better off buying a new pair of shoes?
Both help: Wearing a sleeve keeps the muscle warm and against the bone which reduces pain and swelling. New shoes help to realign your feet so less stress is placed on the shin bone and the muscles attached to it. Look for motion control or stability shoes like brooks beast or asic gts. Also otc inserts like super feet can help support your arch which in turn help stabilize your ankle and shin bone. ...Read more

Xrays may be indicated if now chronic or recurrent symptoms are present. MRI is often helpful when trying to ascertain extent and exact degree of bony (if any) involvement. Further evaluation warranted. ...Read more

Running Shoes: I am a podiatrist/reconstructive foot and ankle surgeon. I own a shoe store. You need a stable shoe. Saucony, asics, new balance are the best. Look for a pronation or motion control bar running through the center of the shoe. Barefoot running is a fad, and those shoes are bad for your feet. Barefoot running or minimilist running shoes cause stress fractures, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis... ...Read more

Are the good : Sole inserts being placed in something? Or are you just standing on them? The shoe and the insert are two different things and serve two different purposes. Ideally, you want both. Having a good insole with a warn out shoe is not going to be a good idea... ...Read more
All can be fine: This is hard to answer. It depends on the quality of the shoe, how well it fits the shape of your foot and, most importantly, how well it feels. As a rule, the thicker the sole, the stiffer the shoe, the better the support, the better the shoe is for you. It does mean that other shoes are bad. Using generalities, my best answer to your question, would be a good running shoe. Dr l. ...Read more
