I have a pair of Asics that I have purchased and after a month (past time to return them ) I have come to realize they are not supporting me as they should. I have become plagued with severe shin splints and knee pain; this was not the case with my prior shoes which were Mizunos. I am hoping to still get the mileage out of these Asics and I am hoping someone could suggest a insert that may help me. Thank you for listening.
Inserts can help correct some biomechanical problems and might be able to compensate for a deficiency in the new shoes. What specific model (not just the company name) are your old and new shoes? Need that info to determine the difference between the shoes.
