Sticker Shock

When doing our grocery shopping we pass by a shoe store in the mall. The prices of the shoes are astounding. I am glad I am not in the market for athletic shoes. Notice that shoes can be purchased on credit over twelve months. To be fair these are imported shoes which are taxed heavily. (Anything imported is heavily taxed)  Brazilian athletic shoes are cheaper.
If you look closely you can see one pair of shoes sells for R599 which would be around $300. Yikes!
