UA's trademark Micro G technology is at work in these budget runners. Available in two colorways (Steel and Taxi Yellow), for under 80 bucks it makes a great addition to your running rotation as well as a Holiday gift.

No. 9 - PUMA evoSPEED 4 FG Soccer Cleat

Was: $85

Now: $80

Find It Here: Dick's Sporting Goods

Soccer cleats can get expensive, but truthfully, there's no need to blow your budget on features and gimmicks you don't aren't going to actually use. The evoSPEED 4 is a cleat for players who would rather impress with their skills than their footwear. They're not heavily discounted, but for the price, you'll be hard pressed to find a cleat this solid.

No. 8 - Nike Free 4.0 V2

Was: $90

Now: $70

Find It Here: Finish Line

The Nike Free has endless options through NIKEID, but it'll cost you. The 4.0's for $70 is a good discount for any Nike Running kick.


<strong></strong>

No. 7 - Puma Cell Leap TR

Was: $85

Now: $70

Find It Here: Finishline

The Cell Leap is available in three different colorways and at $15 off of its list price, a decent bump. The entire upper is made of a ventilated mesh, keeping you cool and dry during long distance treks. But the real highlight here is the reinforced midsole, which is soft enough to cushion your ride and stable enough to keep you injury-free.


<strong></strong>

No. 6 - Nike Free Run+ 2

Was: $105

Now: $72

Find It Here: Finishline

The Free Run+ 2 was one of Nike's most popular models of the last few years, but if you missed out, now's a great time to give them a try. The barefoot-like design was a massive hit, and could be seen in the streets with jeans just as often as the tracks. If you want to see what all the fuss is about, or just want to add to your collection, they're 25% off at Finish Line right now.

No. 5 - Nike Zoom Hyperchaos

Was: $90

Now: $75

Here's one for the ballers. A Hyperfuse upper and Zoom Air cushioned forefoot make this a true powerhouse on the court. A plethora of colorways are discounted, so you can easily match your team's uniforms.


<strong></strong>

No. 4 - Jordan Play In These II

Was: $115

Now: $70

Find It Here: Eastbay

One of the biggest discounts this week is the Air Jordan Play In These II. Jordan Brand designed these specifically for players who rotate between the hardwood and pavement. Utilizing Hyperfuse and an aggressive outsole pattern, it's safe to say that these are among today's top of the line basketball sneakers. A number of colorways are discounted, but sizes are moving quickly so don't sleep on these.

<strong></strong>

No. 3 - adidas Crazy Shadow

Was: $100

Now: $70

Find It Here: Eastbay

Inspired by the Crazy Light, this high top comes equipped with the adidas miCoach tracking system. If you're looking to try out some of adidas' top technologies, the Crazy Shadow is a great place to start.

No. 2 - Mizuno Wave Musha 4

Was: $90

Find It Here: Dick's Sporting Goods

For the serious runner, the Mizuno Wave Musha 4 is definitely one to consider. AirMesh upper, Wave Technology, and SmoothRide Engineering are packaged into this discounted runner.

No. 1 - Brooks PureConnect

Was: $90

Now: $80

Find It: Dick's Sporting Goods

A 4mm heel-to-toe drop and a flexible outsole, the Brooks PureConnect definitely lives up to the name, connecting the runner to the road. If other minimal/barefoot shoes haven't convinced you that the hype is real, the PureConnect might be the one that changes your mind. Brooks put emphasis on maintaining a secure and stable upper, and these provide a feel you simply cannot find with other minimal shoes.

With the PureConnect 2 hitting shelves in 2013, prices are expected to sink in the coming months.
