I'd even say at the US pricepoint they're good value. I'd much rather spend $348 for a pair of nandoXnando then spend $265 for a pair of RRDS nudies. Ever since nudie jacked their prices, I cannot fathom spending that much money for a pair of nudies every again. At the former price of $165, they were a steal, but $265? I'd never suggest anyone spending $265 on a pair of jeans to buy nudies. What's the price of 5EP's? Are the NandoxNando 348 from Japan or is that the NYC price?
