Best shoes for Women with runner's knee 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.

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.
