They are good for people like Dedue who aren't going to stop being doubled anyway. Ochain Shield is also good on Seteth for restoring HP and negating criticals. Aegis Shield is also situationally good on Felix. Seiros Shield is also useful for monster baiting

You just have to think of who you put them on. Making the indestructible more indestructible is not overkill.

Shields can be un-equipped when needed.

If you can still double with the shield or can’t double at all, keep it on. It could save your life.

If you need to take it off to double then do so.

They can actually be very useful situationally.

if you have weight -3 and can negate any weight penalty with strength it's worth it

Worth it if you have no other build in mind, or if you are a Fortress Knight with high Def already. Flyers not in an avoid build can also use the Aurora Shield. Bonus damage negating shields (Aurora, Lampos, etc.) weigh 0, so they are free +3 PRT even on units who do not need the extra damage negation.
