Best Brooks shoes for Men with IT band syndrome

The Seattle-based Brooks is the number one selling shoe brand in running stores. This is because the running-only Brooks has stayed innovative while remaining true to the foundational success of its top styles, such as the Adrenaline, Ghost, and Glycerin. When a new runner wants their first running shoe, Brooks is often the perfect entry shoe since its award winning styles can fit almost any stride. And for the long time runner who has worn Brooks for years, there's no reason to try another shoe since the brand works great mile after mile.

Many runners know the dangers of IT Band Syndrome; it can linger for months if not years, rearing its ugly head right before a race. IT band syndrome, or Iliotibial Band Syndrome, is caused when the ligament that runs outside the leg becomes tight, inflamed, and just downright painful to move. This problem can arise from weaknesses in certain muscles or running's repetitive motions. Luckily, the right shoe can make a difference, both in terms of preventing and treating IT band issues.
