I highly recommend bespoke orthotics for your feet if you are having arch or shin pain.
All boots except the bespoke £1500 Puma Powercat VIP boots which included a trip to the factory in Wales with a gait analysis screening and bespoke boots made exactly for the biomechanical needs of your feet are 'bog standard boots'.
Some will suit better than others. Asics are regularly claimed to be quite kind to your feet. The heel is raised 10mm above the ball of the foot which is recommended for me by a physio and is claimed by Asics to be better for the health of your lower legs.
Since the OP is in/near UL then surely she could find someone there offering a gait analysis/orthotic service. It will be ~€150 but i promise it is worth it if you have ongoing foot/lower limb pain.

. They won't suit orthotics though.
