I must say that I am not the type of person to purchase shoes over $60.  But now I realize that I am not getting any younger, I have to get something that is comfortable for my feet.  I was told the other day that I have no arch in my feet and I should not be buying any kind of shoes.  Asics were the right fit and recommended for those who have problems with their feet when it comes to walking on just being on your feet all day!!
