People may argue about durability vs. comfort, vapors vs. barricades, etc. etc. but he raises valid points. It's marketed as a Tour shoe and with that price point, quality should be better, regardless if the shoe is "lightweight" or not.
Are we really that brainwashed on buying $100 shoes that will only last a few weeks?
Yes, people kill each other over a pair of Jordan's.
These shoes last a lot longer than a few weeks if you take care of them and don't drag your feet like a clod. If your prone to being hard on your shoes then buy something else. Pretty simple.
