By now, most of you know that you can’t afford to wear your Karasuto shoes in high school volleyball tournaments.
You’ll be asked to leave the court in order to take them off, but it’s not a great deal, especially considering the price tag of $500.
In fact, you could find better options in high-end shoes.
We took the time to go through the top 10 best cheap-ish Karasutons, from the cheapest to the most expensive.
You can find the full guide to the best cheap shoes, here.1.
KARASUTON REI COYOTE 3.0-4.0 SHOES $300-$400KIf you’re a regular viewer of our Top 10 Best Cheap Shoes of 2017 series, you know we love the new Rei Coyote 3.5-4-5-6-7.
It is one of the most versatile shoes we have ever tested, and the 3.4-4 is a nice, lightweight option.
The 2-piece construction makes for a soft, comfortable fit, and you can find a variety of colors and fabrics for the same price.
The Rei Eco is also a great option, although it does come with a few drawbacks.
The rubber on the upper is stiff, which makes it feel a little stiffer than the previous iterations.
It also doesn’t offer as much of a cushioning effect as the previous models, which can make the shoe feel uncomfortable to wear at times.
If you need to get some extra cushioning, the REI Eco is a great alternative.
The new version of the shoe has a lower price tag, but the REIT 3.2-4 comes with some improvements.
It has an improved, more supportive upper, a better heel and a slightly larger toe box to improve traction.
It’s also a little lighter than the older models, at just over 1 pound.
If that’s not enough to convince you to shell out the money, there’s still the new REIT 4.0, which also comes with a slightly more flexible rubber, a more supportive heel and lower prices.2.
REI REI-DOME COYOTES $375-$400$300-$350-$350KAs for the REIs best shoes, they are no slouches in price either.
The REI Dome Coyotes have the same great construction as the older Rei Dome Coys, but now it’s a solid-feeling pair of sneakers for the less active types.
They are lightweight enough for most people, but still pack a punch for power players and athletes.
The sole is slightly different from the Dome Coies, which helps keep them from feeling as heavy as the Dome shoes.
They’re also not the lightest, at a bit under 2.5 ounces, but are still comfortable enough to play on the court.
The only real downside to these sneakers is that they are a bit pricey at $375, which is a bit steep for something that is usually affordable.
It might be a little too expensive for some players, but for those who prefer the lighter and less flexible look, it’s definitely worth a shot.3.
REIT BANANAS 3.3-4-$375K$375-400$400-$400-$450KThe Reit Bananas 3.6-4 shoes are the new version, which adds a bit more comfort to the shoe, making it slightly lighter and a little more comfortable for those with shorter feet.
The shoes have a lighter and softer sole, and a lower-cut design, making them easy to find and find again.
The sneakers are also lighter than before, but they are still a good choice for those looking for something a little less athletic than the Dome or Bananas.
The Bananas have an improved sole, but you won’t find as much cushioning as before.
They still are a good option for those seeking a lighter shoe, as they are very comfortable.4.
REVARO BANANA 3.1-3.3-$350$400-500KThe REVaro Bananas are another great option for casual fans of the classic Rei style, and are just as light as the Bananas previous model.
These shoes are lighter than previous models and offer a slightly different shape, which gives them a more flexible feel.
The outer shell is a little thicker, but not by much.
The outsole is still very stiff, but there is some cushioning on the outside of the shell.
They can be found for $400, which means they are not the cheapest of the Reis.
The lower price is still good value for those that want a lightweight, yet durable pair of shoes.5.
