I don't remember the last time I purchased a pair of Nike's. I'd have to say it's been at least 10 years. I left my running shoes at home and needed a pair to use the gym at my hotel here in Montana; so I went to the shoe store. With a buy 1 get the other half off, I couldn't resist on getting a 2 pairs. I purchased a pair of New Balance and Nike. The total was under $100!
