Fit-Q: How Much Would You Spend on Running Shoes?

I'm not in the market for new running shoes. In fact, I've been told by several family members that I have too many and need to pick through my collection. But I was reading about recent offerings now available at a local running store which got me thinking about the price tag on these shoes that we wear for all those miles. My shoes have varied in price over the years, from the Nike Pegasus sale find around $50 to the $120 Nike Air Zoom Vomero+ 2 I sported for two (or was it three?) seasons and still have a new pair to break in sitting in the closet. Not to go all Nike on you--although that's always been my shoe of choice and most comfort--but I did wear Under Armour's new Apparition last year which settled in around $110 or $120 at the time of purchase. And currently I'm loving the dynamic support collection from Nike with my LunarGlides ($100) that I like to say carried me through the 2009 Chicago Marathon.

But enough about the sneakers in my closet. What are the price tags on the shoes in yours? Or what do you think is a reasonable amount of money to spend on your running shoes? Answer below and share comments in the comments field. I can tell you my husband's answer right now: He's a bargain shopper who could care less about the style and more about finding a deal. I think he found his current Reeboks on Amazon for $40 max.
