@CBWFlove:  I think if you have had issues already (broken foot, plantar fasciatis, and achilles tendon problems) you should spend the money on shoes. 

Shoes and beds are something you should spend money on in my opinion. 145bucks is spendy, but it seems to be worth it. You would get your moneys worth….

Something to think about. Maybe try to skrimp on something else to find the money, and get the shoes.

You get what you pay for. That particular brand holds up well and will last longer, possibly saving you money in the long run. Your feet are important. Protect them!

@CBWFlove:  If your current running shoes are 5 years old,  it is no wonder you have problems with your feet. Running shoes are only good for 6 months or so, if you put in any kind of distance on a regular basis.

I do remember those student days, when it would have been hard to afford a new pair of socks much less new  shoes.

If you’re working with a number of foot injuries, I’d take the time to really investigate the shoes, and many alternatives, to ensure they actually will provide the stability and support you need. It may be that another $150 pair fits your needs better. Sometimes with Nike, they’re just fashion shoes and you’re paying for the name, and with other Nikes they are workhorses worth the price. Go to a running store, have them check out your injuries and your stride, and see what shoe they recommend for your current needs.
