I got these for ~300 on sale. Not CHEAP, but also not in the rarefied air either. after letting all my high-end kicks marinade, i've realized that I end up not wearing them because they are such an investment and I don't want to see the scuffed up by my dad life.
also, imo, the jump in comfort/quality from mid-to high end isn't that big. it's really more about how much one cares about customization, crazy leathers, whether or not something is handmade, etc.
once you cut all that out, you can get something you're really happy with for a relatively affordable price.
