Theoretically now you have more than $100.00 available to spend on other things. I used to cringe at used shoes also but remembered I used to wear "public" bowling shoes on the rare occasions I went bowling, and never had any bad effects on my feet. It's not good to buy shoes that have been heavily worn because they're molded to the feet of the previous owner, and any padding is probably compressed and useless, but many people buy shoes, take them home and decide they don't fit, so donate them to places like Value Village. The shoes are practically new. Lysol spray not only kills cooties but gives you peace of mind. Wear the boots in good health doing worthwhile things.
