Can You Solve This Shoe Pricing Mystery?

Last night, I was looking at running shoes on Amazon to replace my beat-up pair, and decided maybe I should go with these. Amazon says that there is a “lower price available on select options.” Interesting—I’m used to getting one price for one pair of shoes regardless of size.

But for this pair, I found that the price appeared to shoot up as the size grew from 7 to 7.5 to 8.

I tried to do a quick search for an explanation about Amazon’s pricing for different sizes of shoes of the same model, but didn’t find an answer. Perhaps you can solve this mystery!
