I try to never pay more than $20 for shoes. I don't see the point of paying that much just for a check mark on the side.
@Big Bad Butterfree, honestly, a lot of other shoes are just as good for a lot less. They are just paying for the logo
@Big Bad Butterfree, agreed. Why spend $120 on a pair of shoes if I'm going to ruin them within a week.
@Big Bad Butterfree, buying off brand is fine, but I've never seen a half decent pair of shoes for under $40
@HSA, eh, you gotta know where to look. At a place like Kohl's or Target you can find decent shoes in the 40-60 range, but where I live there's a mall nearby with a Payless Shoes Source that has very similar shoes usually in the $15-20 range.
@Big Bad Butterfree, I tried payless once, soles blew apart in a month
@HSA, interesting. Maybe it's the type of shoes we get. Idk. There's also benefit in checking the clearance sections of better stores. It can often knock off like 10 bucks.
@Big Bad Butterfree, I managed to find a sale that let me purchase 2 pairs of shoes and get a third pair free now I shuffle between them switching every month
@HSA, mine did the exact same thing. When i went to return it the woman accused me of ripping the shoes apart. Dumb hoe refused to believe they were just shjt quality
@Big Bad Butterfree, at Target I’ll find a pair I like and then wait for them to go on clearance at the end of the season. A lot of time I can get $40 shoes for $14
@Big Bad Butterfree, I used to be like that, but now I feel some shoes are actually worth the price tag. I personally like the new Nike air maxes, they are super light, comfortable, and have alot of support. I walk alot and I would rather spend alot on comfy shoes than buy cheep shoes and have to get expensive custom insoles
@nair kid, I completely agree. I got some Adidas ultra boosts for damn near half price and after wearing them for a while I would almost say full price ($260) would be worth it
@Big Bad Butterfree, what about for long lasting shoes? I had a pairs of Air Force Ones, Converse and Timberlands that are older than some of my siblings
@WhyNotBoth, I will admit, I spend more on shoes for work. When you're on your feet all day that's important. Also, my dress shoes were hella expensive, but the look hella fine.
@Big Bad Butterfree, Timberlands for example, will last you over 15 years even if you use them hardcore but cost $160+, wouldn't you say that's worth it?
TRUE STORY: France legally banned Nutella from lowering their prices by more than 40% after a sale of 70% off Nutella caused riots in French supermarkets
If you buy shoes made in the U.S. they're usually very high quality specifically from a company called SAS, expensive as hell, but they'll last for a long time.
These Nikes are running shoes and good running shoes are usually in that price range. I paid $120 for my Brooks.
I would have to say that I did pay 350 for some red wing boots but I have had them for 5 years now and working on forklifts. I going to buy another pair like them.
Also, back in elementary if a kid said "i bet your momma got them shoes from payless" and it was true, they just rekt your whole life
