You're absolutely right, but this is not really a comparison between HS and vans. It's a comparison between HS and designer sneakers.
CPs in my experience last about 3 years of solid (3x per week) wear. I don't remember what they retail for these days but it's a lot. Margielas last about a year.
So there is a durability aspect to the value if you compare like-for-like.
This is relative is it not? what do you consider as time to throw them out? aside from holes developingpost #106849 of 1090533/12/15 at 3:25pmpost #106850 of 1090533/12/15 at 3:52pmpost #106851 of 1090533/12/15 at 3:57pmThe sun goes down upon the Ankh,
And slowly, softly fades -
Across the Drum; the Royal Bank;
The River-Gate; the Shades.
A stony circle's closed to elves;
And here, where lines are blurred,
Between the stacks of books on shelves,
A quiet 'Ook' is heard.
A copper steps the city-street
On paths he's often passed;
The final march; the final beat;
The time to rest at last.
He gives his badge a final shine,
And sadly shakes his head -
While Granny lies beneath a sign
That says: 'I aten't dead.'
The Luggage shifts in sleep and dreams;
It's now. The time's at hand.
For where it's always night, it seems,
A timer clears of sand.
And so it is that Death arrives,
When all the time has gone...
But dreams endure, and hope survives,
And Discworld carries on.
