Best Brooks shoes for Men with patellar tendinitis

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.

Patellofemoral pain syndrome, better known as Runner's Knee, is the constant scourge of many runners. Often caused by running where the kneecap rests on the thighbone, the nagging injury can be corrected with the right PT and the right shoes. Proper sneakers can reduce impact of shock, which in turns reduces kneecap stress. It's also important to replace your shoe regularly and, when you find the right shoe that prevents the injury, to stick with it.
