I see men buying uber expensive gym shoes ....that perform just the same as the kmart brand (or whatever)..why do men do this?
and never heard of this jersey shore...then again I dont watch network tv (food channel and sifi are about it)...
I have owned the same purse since 2004 (bought it in japan for about $20...still works great--no reason to buy another until it totally dies).
the gotta be like or better than whomever mentality..../sigh.....never had the 'drive' to be like anyone else--I prefer being ME ...and yes, my clothes are out of date too (that 'what not to wear' show is only good if you dont do what they say). I wear what feels comfortable, I use purses that I like--and have never looked at one costing more than my first paycheck from my very first job!.....now shoes...that is another story! (though again, dont think I have a pair of any 'designer' brand....payless shoes ftw!)

If you mean real runners buying shoes, then I'll disagree. A person should really go to a store that puts you on a treadmill and recommends a shoe based on your stride. If you know you need a support shoe or something else specific, you might be able to find bargains elsewhere. It depends on what brands and models they carry, and I can't speak to what 'real' running shoes Wal-Mart or PayLess carry. I wouldn't recommend running long distances (or high frequency) in cheap shoes, though. It just makes injuries more likely (feet, knees, etc).
FWIW, I tend to buy the previous year's model of running shoe. They tend to be at least 25% off the average $75-120 price. I also put more miles on my shoes than a running store would recommend. My current pair is probably around the 500-mile mark.

1- As long as we're talking about stereotypes, most women I know spend way more on shoes than the guys I know. The girls here at work are forever talking about one pair or another that cost over $100 or $200.
2- As Zalis pointed out, there is a big difference in shoe quality and, if you're real into your running, it makes a difference.

(having said that, I did that once... I bought our stove and fit the kitchen around it... The stove was 1/3d of the total price of the kitchen... So, that new Kitchenaid Kitchenrobot will fit in perfectly, both with price and looks )
