    Sure. For $250.

    The YouTube video w/ Nick Symmonds was well worth watching.

    This seems a bit at odds with some comments that one of the biggest advantages of the shoe is that it is easier on you legs in training. Not sure going through a pair a week (or faster) is consistent with that.

    And kids pay many hundreds of dollars for shoes that can only be worn occasionally and are really only for show.

    There is a training version of these things...I have a pair they are great..And a lot cheaper...no way you would train in these shoes....unless you had an unlimited supply....

    Anyways it is THE Nike store...so I think we can assume they know what they are talking about...

    I was really surprised how high his pulse rate went up at, for Symmonds, a pretty easy pace....

    But there's no reason to wear them except in competition. For a top class marathon runner, even if they have to pay for them, buying one pair every 3 marathons really isn't a issue.
