Life is short and some of us choose to enjoy life and buy a pair of shoes for 130 (I can't afford that).
Look on the positive side, if you enjoyed it and it worked well for your game, then Nike has done its job.
130 is still cheap in a sense that you can't make a shoe like that starting from scratch (design, mold, test, finish).
