$180 is too expensive, imo. they could be found at deeper discounts.

I think they are very sharp looking. Plus I can get 20% with a friends discount.

That's about $130 off retail so not a bad deal for a good shoe. Might be found cheaper if you hunt but that's true of most things.

You may be able to find that shoes $30 or $40 cheaper, as a second, return shoe or with some stacking deal, but for a first that you can return etc this is a good price.

Also IMHO a nice shoe.

+1. Consider the trade-off of having them now at (what I think is) a decent price, or hunting around a bit. Personally, I lean towards instant gratification, but the latter can also be a good learning experience.

Yes, I would say so, though I got my pair of AEs (Sanfords) off eBay for £17 + postage, so there's some great deals out there with a bit more searching...
