I think that's just Nike doing the sports brand thing where they put their logo on a product and that somehow shoots the value through the roof. Under Armour and some other sports brands also do that.
No offense to your new boots though!
If you know the right places to shop you could get Nike boots for mad cheap. I'm a University Student so I don't have much of a budget. For example, I used to have the Vans Auras for like a week, until I had to return them cause they weren't the right size for me. The shop I returned them to didn't have my size so I just got a full refund and went shopping elsewhere. Next day my family and I go to the states for a shopping trip, and I planned on spending upwards of $300 for new boots. So the first store we went to was a Ross down in Seattle, and behold there was a pair of Nike ZF1s for $85. Shocked and surprised I tried them on and they fit perfectly. Story of how I got hooked on Nike and how I saved my self a buttload of cash.

Anyway, so I got my ZF1s for $85 and I recently bought my Kaijus for $200 (Muller Kaiju QS - totally worth it IMO). So if you know where to look you could get things cheap.

I would like to announce you officially the luckiest person on this forum. (But I can't really do that!) Nice one!

I see lots of cheap and hardly used boots at thrift shops. I saw a pair of hardly used DC Boas in my size for $25

i've had 2 sets of DK's i think the first ones with the patent leather psychedelic design, picked those up for $150 brand new. i got super lucky, i see them on ebay for $700+
those got worn out. i got those at the end of my 1st season 4yrs ago.
i picked up last yrs DK, i'm sure the tech is better. they are comfy as $hit. i'll stick with what i know..

you gotta let me know how that plays out bro...
This whole "turns to mush" idea is scaring me. But I can't get over how fucking comfy those motherfuckers were man!
Seems to me like it'd be worth it if I just got some aftermarket insoles you know?

I do have Superfeet red hots with all my boots, maybe the reason they haven't gone to mush?

Yeah, I have green and orange in my two ThirtyTwo boots - high shock absorbtion. I figure those would keep me feeling pretty solid.

I bought a pair not long ago and even since I got them I feel like I've been wearing heaven on my feet. They are so great! Nike has mastered look and function! They ride great and are so warm! 10 out of 10 from me guys!

I LOVED my Nike's.....at first. I agree with all those before me about the "mush". Sorry, I know, I was bumbled too.
