I paid around $300 for a pair of hockey skates that I have used and abused for nearly 4 years now. The rubber coating on the hard plastic toe is falling apart from contact with other skates (easily fixed with a sealant), and I had to replace the steel -once- because of skate sharpening (a $30 investment), but other than that, these skates have held strong and I can probably get another 4 years out of them. How is this related? I probably couldn't play ball for 2 years in these, let alone 4 or 8. Besides, these maybe cost Nike $25 to make after labor, materials and production costs. Its held together with glue and stitching, not rivets and steel. Not to mention La Bron is a douche bag, why would you ever even consider buying footwear with his name on it in the first place?

Mostly I avoid shameless brand whoring, and mostly I avoid spending three figures on shoes

God, these look poo.

I'd pay that for some nice dress shoes, but for a pair of trainers? drat no.

For trainers I have a couple of pairs of converse, and a pair of old school adidas samba which i really like.... and I didn't buy the last couple of pairs of those... I just wore mine until the smell got so bad that my girlfriend went out and bought me a new pair to keep from me stinking the porch out with them.

ugly as hell and not worth it. Who f***ing cares about the stats for your performance as rated by your shoes?! Is any regular person going to use that more than once or twice for a kick?! Its a redundant luxury feature.

Anyone that pays $315 to look like a crack dealer deserves to get shot so their sneakers can be stolen.

That is a decent price for dress shoes but sneakers, no way.

The funny thing is only poor people wear shoes like this outside of a basketball court.

I could buy 10 pairs in any style I want of my favorite brand of shoe for that price. How many people will get beaten and their shoes taken this time with a price tag like that and an economy like today's?

Who wears sneakers these days? I never see anyone wearing them in my town. Is it an East Coast thing?
