    I don't necessarily think there's any collusion going on, but it's interesting that all these shoes price about the same ($130-150 price range)...
    This is the shoe I am currently looking at. I am liking what I see so far.

    I wear each pair out in about 2-3 months (350-500 miles), but man, they are comfy. I buy an extra pair as daily wear shoes then rotate them into rucking shoes when my last pair wears out.

    I normally walk 10-15 miles per week, so I think I would probably get at least a year plus out of the Adrenalines.

    my wife gave me the go ahead to buy a new bike this fall. i am currently riding my old ('94) hardtail with a re-furbed front suspension and it's still holding up ok. a lot has changed since i stopped riding and i am psyched about getting a new bike and am finally going to give in and get a dual-suspension rig. currently looking at the below

    i lucked out and found a brand new, never ridden one of these on ebay this week for a significant amount below it's sales price. it arrives next tuesday. interestingly enough, this is the first time i have ever used ebay.

    Nice find!

    I've not priced real road bikes in a number of years, but I recall being astonished at the cost of a 'middle of the road' real bike a while back. You can drop some serious coin in a hurry on those things!

    I have a couple of buddies who are big into mountain biking and spare little expense on their hobby. Ed told me one time that his great fear is that when he dies his wife will sell his bike for what he told her he paid for it.

    you can quickly get to $10k + on mountain bikes when you start getting into carbon fiber and titanium and the higher end components.

    I don't doubt it. These guys have some nice toys .... and the injuries to go along with them. After a second collarbone break, I asked Ed if he realized that he was spending a small fortune just to get injured. I added that for half price, I would club him about the head and torso.
