My advice is to find a specialty running store (if you have'nt already done so) most of the time these people know what they're doing and they'll have you run on a treadmill or run outside to see how you run and land on your feet and they'll fit you with a shoe that's made for your running form, or closest to it. Expect to spend around a hundred bucks but they're well worth it. I also developed plantar fascitis and I ended up going to a foot dr. and he fitted me with running orthotics and within 2 weeks the pain was gone and has'nt been back since. I never run without em.
I can almost guarentee your knee pain is caused by your shoes. But don't take my word for it, find a good running store.
The odd thing was I was running for 6-7 months before I had ANY issue. And I did the wet foot test, to make sure I got the right type of shoe (pronate, etc, etc.)
But I could be in the market for new shoes, so I might go to a running store this time to get "professionally fitted"
