Re: Shin splints could be a good sign

You didn't mention any new shoes, but if you have just begun wearing birks - it is common for shin splints to develop after 1 to 2 weeks from the new walking stride. In that case it would be a good sign that you are changing your walk and that they may be beneficial for you. When I got my first birks I was told this might happen and it did and they have been really helpful to me.
