i got those bad last year.
pardon me for beeing a noob but what are booster straps. sound like they would help
go see a doctor
i got shin splints awhile ago and it hurts so much some times
i thought once i got new boots i would be fine but i had pressure fractiors in my shins which if i want them 2 heal i have 2 not ski for a very long time so go see a doctor befor u fuck your self up for good
also befor u go 2 sleep every night write the alphabet with the foot this will strenthen the shin muscle and it will be stronger and heal faster
sorry about spelling
