Best shoes for Dek Hockey?

Hey all,

I've been playing Dek Hockey for probably about 5 years now. Anyways, I've recently started experiencing shin splints and I'm pretty sure it's because I was using the wrong shoes for awhile. I was using a pair of all terrain shoes for Dek Hockey, playing in games 1-3 times a week for a few months.

I've never been one to be conscious of my shoe choice until recently due to the shin splints, probably because I never had issues with it save one time in high school where I was experiencing them due to running in really old shoes.

So, I went to the shoe store yesterday and found out that I have a medium arch and am a neutral runner.

My question is, what are the best shoes for Dek Hockey? After doing some research, the most logical choice to me seems to be Cross trainer shoes or basketball shoes. Right now I have a pair of nice Saucony running shoes, but those probably aren't the best for Dek Hockey purposes considering they are mainly meant for running (just moving forward).

Anyone have any suggestions or specific shoes you like? Keeping in mind what kind of foot and running style I have. Would be much appreciated!
