Best shoes for Men with IT band syndrome who need good support

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.
