This may be a bit of a rant, but I'm curious what others are thinking here.
I for one am kind of sick of seeing minimal/lightweight shoes that cost as much or more than their heavier/more traditional counterparts. I'm sorry that I just don't care what technology Newtons have--I am NOT paying $150 for a pair of shoes!
The price for the "middle of the line" stability shoe (Asics GT-2xxx series, Nike Air Structure Triax, Brooks Adrenaline) has gone up over time; when I was in high school over a decade ago, it was $90, and the price rose to $95-100 by the time I graduated college. Now if you look, it's up to about $110. For some reason, my mind says minimal shoes should cost less than that, but they don't.
Am I the only person frustrated and perplexed by that?
