I think the Kinsei is a neutral shoe.... and very expensive! Over £100 last time I checked. I don't think I've actually ever seen anyone wearing them though. I'd also be interested to hear what peoples opinions are of them.

I've considered the kinsei too.But your right Dan,they do seem a bit pricey.£130 at sweatshop.From what the specifications say,the shoe will adapt itself to whatever you are.Neutral,overpro, etc.
I have Vomeros my self shinpains but don't seem to have the kind of problems your having.I've only ever run in nike but am considering trying out something in the asics range,trouble is,wherever you read up on the reviews,your always going to get the contrasting opinions aren't you?
I would,however,also be v. interested in what peoples thoughts are on this.:confused:

I used to have real trouble with shin splints,and without wanting to tempt fate I have had no problems since I started wearing a pair of Brooks radius 06 shoes with Sorbothane insoles.

I have been wearing these for about 6 months .
