Does this make sense? Looking at how my shoe wears down and how my knee wobbles when my foot strikes the ground it's clear I supinate. However, I was getting a sharp pain on both my shins. I don't think they are shin splints though. The pain is mainly on my left shin, but I feel a little on the right one also. It also only comes when I'm running. The pain is on the inner side of the shin about 4-6 inches above the ankle and is only on about a 2 inch long area. I think what's happening is that when I supinate the outer portion of my heel strikes first and then the inner portion of the ball of my foot strikes and it's putting pressure on this part of my shin. I get the same pain whether wearing shoes or running barefoot. Do I need to get orthotics or do some sort of exercise?
