Best Nike shoes for Men with runner's knee

The Portland athletic giant got its start making running shoes. A waffle iron and billions of dollars later, Nike is the worldwide leader in making, marketing, and selling running shoes (among other athletic products). In fact, the current CEO of Nike got his start designing Nike's most popular running shoe: the Air Zoom Pegasus. Over the years, Nike has continued to perfect its popular running line, developing shoes for every stride, every budget, and every style.

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.
