Best shoes for Men with IT band syndrome who prefer stability support

People who pronate have their arches collapse inward when they run. There's nothing wrong with this--in fact, many of the world's best runners are pronators. The key is to find the right sneaker to help mitigate the issue. Stability shoes help overpronators by keeping the gait straight as the foot hits the ground. These shoes provide decent arch support and solid cushioning. You can find stability competition shoes, regular pavement shoes, or trail shoes.

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.
