Interesting you single out a shoe on special and ignore the other brands and models priced the same or dearer than most retailers. I shouldn't bite I know but people that are either pushing agenda's or sprouting garbage as fact annoy me, no blood pressure issues though.
If you were earlier involved in the thread you would had notice many of the poster were recommending ASICS, I provided a link to a site which supplies them at a decent price, checked it out for yourself if you want the facts.
I would suggest that 99% of the forum members, like myself get a lot of enjoyment of purchasing new kit, been able to purchase this kit at great prices means we all can purchase more, which equals more fun for us.
There are many wise sellers/batmakers who use this forum to promote and sell their kit with great success.
If any seller offers a product at a great price they too will be among the discussions on the forum.
I look forward to seeing your latest forum members red hot offer, and you know skip, I will even provided the link for all of us to share and send some of my hard earnt your way.
