CVan new trainers cause shin splints?

Well, I thought I was wearing them in gradually. Walked in them first for a few weeks and a then few short runs so don't think it's that, but thanks for the message.

CVan new trainers cause shin splints?

I used to run regularly to reasonable club standard but for various reasons haven't run for a few years and have only recently started again. I started gradually as you are always told to and built it up bit by bit. I then bought some new trainers (since the 2020 I always run in the Asics 2000 series) and soon after got shin splints which was really frsutrating because it stopped me running for a few weeks and lost any fitness I had gained. I switched back to my old pair of shoes and was fine, tried the new trainers again and on my last run started to get pains again in my shins.

I have two questions:

 1) Can new trainers give you shin-splints or is this just likely to be a coincidence?

2) What, if anything can be done to prevent shin splints?
