well remember you get what you pay for, unless you buy in large amounts you don't get a really decent price break. especially with diesel, because diesel owns all of their stores, they have tight requires on their distributors. if you want to buy diesels at 30-40 bucks a pair, your buying 10k or more pairs at a time. otherwise your looking from 80-190 depending on style and wash. this is the same with any high-end designer. you can get nike, adidas, and others at resonable prices you just have to look and look hard. right now liquidation has 50 pair mixed lot with nike, adadis, asic, and some others if you want to take a look.
