    TW has the yellow/black ones for the same price. I just bought a pair and they are similar in feel to the Breathe Free II's but the difference is that the heel is higher because of the Air Max bladder. Not a bad shoe but paying $110 full price for a pair of tennis shoes is ridiculous. That is why Nike can pay Tiger Woods $100 million for his contract because you have women in China getting paid $1 a day to make these shoes and they sell them for $110 a pair. That's a little excessive don't you think? Don't get me wrong, I understand global economics but to sell at that much of a margin is almost robbery.

    But you just said it. There isn't that much of a margin for Nike because they have to pay Tiger Woods $100 million out of that margin right off the top. Nike only gets what's left over after they pay the multi-million dollar salaries to Tiger, Jordan, Federer, Nadal, Serena, Michelle Wie, Sharapova, etc. Actually, I should say that it's we (the people who buy Nike shoes and other stuff) that pay these pros their multi-million dollar salaries. :-(

    If Nike didn't sponsor anyone, they could probably sell those same $110 shoes for $55 and make the same amount of net profit.

    I just went to the nike employee store in oregon. it was a three hr drive from my house but well worth it. got all the new nike stuff half off. like the new federer polos for twenty five bucks and nadals pirate pants for twenty five. I also got a great deal on the breathe cages which were sixty bucks (the first colorway/ tealish). but I heard there are employee store in memphis and other places. so if u live by a location, try to find someone that works at nike to get u on the list.
