Thank you. When I did valet in college I had shin splints (never did before in all my years of exercise and sports in HS). As soon as I switched up shoes, this solved the problem (may not for the OP but it is worth a shot and FREE).
I suggest the OP actually read the link I posted as there are different model ASICS for different body types/movements:
for ex: (taken from roadrunnner)
Stability Plus (35)
Performance Stability (16)
Neutral Plus (23)
Performance Neutral (14)
Motion Control (9)
Motion Control Plus (10)
