Well, I highly recommend the LTD's, and 84USD is a good price, as I paid 147CND. Now I feel slightly ripped off, but the shoes are preety much worth any price. I've always said that a player's shoes are by far the most important piece of eqipment he can own, and these shoes only fortify my conviction. Again, the SHB-100 LTD edititions come highly recommended. I should note that I have the 2007 model that is just "gold" and not "dragon gold." The 2007s have no red whatsoever. I do not know if there are physical differences between the 2007 and 2008 LTDs.
