    Changing from "high-heeled sneakers" to minimalist running shoes forced me to learn better running form, moving from a sloppy heel strike to a controlled midfoot strike and absorbing each stride with my whole body including my core.

    The shin splints that have plagued me for decades have vanished, seemingly for good.

    A year ago I had to stop all sports and running due to shin splints. I couldn’t walk without pain especially in cold weather. A podiatrist told me I had fallen arches and i needed insoles else I would have shin splints for the rest of my life. I did nothing for a full month. Then started barefoot running. 100 meters a day at first, increasing each week by a little. I started landing on my mid foot and my cadence increased. Then I bought some vibram’s and can now run 10 miles in a city on concrete. Shin splints have never returned.
