Best shoes for Men with patellar tendinitis

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.
