Does anyone else out there think we are being ripped off in the UK? Is there anything we can do it about (petition the manufacturers for example)?
I have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Japan. It is supposed to be expensive but I found that all running gear there is a fraction of the price it is here! I bought a couple of pairs of UK made New Balance shoes for less than half the price they sell for here. All other brands were also much cheaper.For example the Asics 2110 (2206 model) sells for between £30 and £35 in Japan but I've not seen them for less than £59 here in the UK.
Sorry for the whinge but I couldn't think of anyone else to moan about it too.
