Daddy's Got a New Pair of Shoes

Ran out today at lunch. Wanted to look for the new LeBron Vs but none of the stores in my area had them (man, I do miss the shopping choices in metro DC area). So, since I have impulse issues and needed to pick a pair, I decided on this sweet pair of kicks:

The Team Jordan Jumpman Elite 08 feel great; especially since I did no prior research in purchasing them. But since I also have a severe case of Buyer's Remorse, I decided to look up the price and description of the shoes. have them going for $118 and ran this description:

Jordan Men's Team Elite 08
Black/Varsity Red
Elevate your basketball performance to a whole new level with the Jordan Team Elite 08 basketball shoe. This high flyin' Jordan shoe features a combination of floater and rich nubuck leathers with a foam-backed collar and perforated, synthetic leather tongue. The midsole is lightweight Phylon™ with a double-stacked Zoom Air in the heel for the ultimate reaction. A solid rubber outsole with herringbone traction pods add a great grip on the court.

I got the shoes for about $7 more at Foot Locker downtown. So when you include shipping & handling (which you have to since the free shipping takes forever), I feel like at least I didn't get raped by the guys in the stripes.
