Where do you buy your $30-60 shoes?
Amazon. In the past two years, for less than $60, I've gotten:
New Balance Fuel Cell Propel (2 pairs) - $35
New Balance 1500 V6 - $45
New Balance Zante Pursuit - $45
Nike Zoom Elite 9 - $60
Brooks Launch 5 - $59
ASICS Dynaflyte - $50
I sometimes buy a more expensive shoe like Zoom Fly's or the Endorphin Speed, but for shoes that I'm going to run most of my mileage with, I avoid paying more than I have to. If each pair on that list was a $100 MSRP shoe, then that list represents hundreds of dollars in savings.
