The Best Running Shoes For Bad Knees In 2018

Don’t let knee pain spoil your run. We picked out the very best running shoes for knee pain and knee support this year.

We know you’re pushed for time. So we considered dozens of shoes from this year’s ranges, and picked out our 2 favorites. Choose one of these shoes and you’ll be back on the road (or treadmill) in no-time.

New Balance M890V4

best running shoes for knee pain

The V4’s are the new kids on the block; the new and improved New Balance 890V3.

The lightweight construction of the New Balance M890V4 means no excess pressure is put on the knee.

More importantly, the M890V4 has an integrated ABZORB cushioning. This technology has been developed with one thing in mind; shock absorption.

Impact from each step travels through this cushioning before hitting the body, and it’s noticeable, when comparing it to standard road running shoes like the Asics Dynaflyte.

Adidas Supernova Sequence 9

Adidas have been making some headway in the running market, especially with technologically advanced running shoes; the Adidas Supernova Sequence falls right into that category.

The Supernova Sequence shoe focuses more on overall support than shock absorption, although the construction has impact cushioning integrated into it.

New Balance M890v4 or Adidas Supernova Sequence 9?

For knee support, rather than reducing pain caused from running, the Adidas Supernova Sequence 9 wins; hands down. They’ll continue to offer this support even on long distance runs.

But, for combating knee pain whilst running, the New Balance M890v4 ABZORB technology is much more efficient…not to mention they are around $30 cheaper.
