with careful shopping, I have sometimes been able to get the previous models on clearance.
However, as Nancy said, shoes are important. My current fave shoe are $180 before taxes, and when I am in need of a new pair and can't find a sale, I do not hesitate at paying full price and tightening up somewhere else.
And I also agree that good running shoes rarely come untied. Another one of my current pairs ties so tightly that I often have trouble getting them off. If you get a pair with laces not to your liking, you can purchase aftermarket laces that are supposed to stay tied better.
