Best extremely durable shoes for Men with patellar tendinitis

There is nothing worse than having a shoe that falls apart after a single wear. Finding a top, durable shoe can mean the difference between getting 50 miles out of a pair... or 500. And that extra durability can save you serious money. But having a durable shoe not only means saving money: it means less injuries, a better run, and a healthier life.

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.
