    Exactly. I’m cheap but won’t buy cheap shoes. First they are a slip hazard that will cost you in pain and medical bills. Secondly, they don’t last for shit and are uncomfortable. Also, they make your feet smell bad.
    My expensive shoes last so they end up being way cheaper.

      I wish there was any consistency or correlation in the shoes I buy and how long they last. I agree that generally higher price means better quality. But I decided to spend on some nicer hiking shoes from REI and they both have holes in them, while an $8 pair of business casual shoes I expected to be a throwaway have lasted years now
