You can get hold of elastic strengthening bands from gyms, sports shops, boots etc. Tie them to something, put foot in loop pull toes towards you. You can also sit in a chair opposite sofa/bed, stick toes underneath, lift bed/sofa.
If you're already getting pains, speak to your gym staff, physio or doctor. They might be able to sort it quicker than just trying to strengthen it.
Is this caused by running? It could be the start of medial tibial stress syndrome (one type of shin splints), in which case if you continue running - especially if you're doing stretching exercises - you can make it worse.
Try kicking the edge of walls etc with your bare shins. You could even try kicking wooden poles like Jean Claude Van Damme did. Look at him! Just by kicking poles he turned into a superman and got loads of sex and nob jobs.
