Now from my little readings, the price and value of an item is reflective of three things.
1) Functional/Cost value
2) Emotive Value
3) Self Worth Value
I feel functionally it cost bout $20 to make, and to protect and serve yuh foot and grip the ground that will give about 10$ more.
In terms of emotion I think the feeling you get from owning one and putting it on yuh foot and stepping out worth bout 50$
I think the self worth value...i.e. the feeling you get from others..when they see you and the envy is what makes up the rest of the price.
$300 ent worth it atall...That boots should cost $60US max.
Personally I like a simple boot.
Also I cyar play in plastic boots...I prefer Leather so Puma King and Copas are my speed. Plus my foot narrow so Nikes too big in the toe box and heel for me.
Right now this boot real appealing but I cyar pay $125US to run in Presidents and Savannah. The kinda Orange Clay mud we have down here...that does dinge anything.
