Brooks Adrenaline GTS 18, Men, Women, MSRP $120
The Brooks Adrenaline 18 is an amazing shoe. Part of the long running and best selling Adrenaline GTS series, the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 18 feels bouncy, durable, and extremely comfortable. Few shoes ever made can match the quality of the Adrenaline GTS 18, and nearly every serious pronator suffering from shin splints would be wise to try it out. There’s a reason this shoe series has won Best Runner’s World Update year after year.
Saucony Guide ISO, Men, Women, MSRP $130
Rated as the number one stability running shoe to prevent against shin splints, the Guide ISO hits the mark. The shoe has a moderate amount of stability, a lower heel-to-toe drop (8mm) than the above shoes, and an amazing “Everrun” sole that projects the foot forward. If you a buy a shoe at Wal-Mart it’ll lack the cushion, durability, and springiness you need, likely leading to aggressive, early onset shin splints. The Guide ISO is no Wal-Mart shoe. It’s the opposite. The Guide ISO is absolutely an amazing sneaker for anyone who’s a pronator and is looking to prevent shin splints.
