Training on a track with the right running shoes takes its toll but it doesn't aggravate my shins. A run in the middle of a WOD or double unders, however, is hard on the shins. Shin splints are painful!
The Reebok Nano Speeds might help. I tried them this week. The fit is narrow with a softer cushion and slightly thicker sole. They are comfortable and tough. I bought them in my true size. One coach said, however, they stretched out for her. But after a few 400meter runs and a ton of double unders my shins were pain free! I think I will like the Nano Speeds.
