Do you believe that pricing strategies (on shoes) can ever be unethical behavior?

    Of course.  

    I think the price of many therapeutic shoes and devices are horribly overpriced simply because they are prescribed, not because they cost more to manufacture.  

    After I got my cast off my broken ankle they made me wear a walking boot which was pretty much just a hunk of cheap plastic with some velcro straps and they charged me over $400 for it.     I could have had a really nice pair of ski or hiking boots for that.  But no, I got one leg of a Storm Trooper Halloween costume.

    Believe it or not, I have lived for 58 years without ever contemplating that.
