to cripple

Hello,
I was trying to explain to someone the (no doubt out of date) slogan for Timberland boots, "the price may cripple you, the boots won't". How can I translate cripple here as estropier doesn't seem (to me) appropriate.
le prix peux vous faire mal, pas les chaussures ??
thanks

    I though about that, but if the price paralysed they wouldn't be able to buy the boots which would defeat the object ! I'm not sure it gives the same flavour ??
