Best Mizuno shoes for Women with runner's knee

The Japanese shoe maker has been making running shoes for decades. Today, Mizuno running shoes are best known for their Wave Plate technology, an undulating plastic that has helped make the brand's shoes some of the most durable on the planet. Mizuno shoes, from their popular Wave Rider to their award winning Catalyst, are found on runners' feet across the world, many of whom have a deep allegiance to the brand.

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.
