Best New Balance shoes for Men with IT band syndrome

Over 100 years old and deeply rooted in New England manufacturing, New Balance has evolved to become one of the top running shoe companies on the planet. Based in Boston and proudly producing many products in the US, New Balance today continues to innovate by making high quality running shoes, such as their Fresh Foam and Minimus models.

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.
