Does a pair of $600 skates make THAT MUCH of a difference then a $200 pair

I recently bought new skates because my old pair was hurting my instep. The guy at the store could have suggested $600 X7.0s or One100s or U+CLs, but he set me up with a pair of U+06s for $200 bucks that are the most comfortable skates I've ever worn.
Damn. I guess I've been using bad/poor fitting skates for a while now. My instep always had some discomfort--just figured that was something that all skates had.
Guess it's time to try a new pair of skates.
