Avoid Shin Splints with the Proper Footwear

If you’re the type that likes to get-up-and-go, you may also be the type that sometimes gets sidelined by injuries. The last thing you want when you’re adventuring the world is a shin splint, so we’ve put together a list of ways to better enjoy your days without injury. 

Foot-Shaped Footwear

This might seem like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised by the frequency of shin splints among people who wear ill-fitting shoes. Shoes that are shaped like the foot (ahem, Lems) tend to offer the room for your foot and toes to fully extend, reducing your likelihood of injury.

Zero Heel Drop

Wearing a shoe without a heel drop means your foot will strike the ground differently. By changing the impact that is made, zero drop shoes help to not only prevent shin splints, but can also help to repair previous injuries. 

Toe Spacers 

Natural toe splay is essential to foot health. At Lems, we always recommend Correct Toes for the perfect way to keep your toes in-line and encourage healthy shins and  spines.

Shin splints are the worst, but luckily, with the advice listed above, you can avoid unnecessary injury and keep your shins in tip top shape.

No matter where you live, there’s plenty of places to soak up some sun or grab some outdoor adventure while keeping 6 feet apart.
