Will a website be affected in anyway by having different pages with the same button title? These pages have different meta titles, keywords, etc but have the same button title for the sake of the navigation panel. For example, there are four pages with the button title '686' but the page meta's vary because they are classed under different categories - Men's 686 Jackets, Women's 686 Jackets, etc.
Just wondering if when the website is crawled, the search engine spiders will get confused and mark the site down for this reason. Any knowledge to be passed on this subject would be great.

Here the sitemap if you need to have a look - http://www.snowboarding-jackets.net/Sitemap.html

Thanks :)

if same content on each page is around 80% the same to the others then it's not recommended to duplicate pages

spider looks on the title of the buttons/links but it doesn't confuse them if same text on several pages. text should describe as much the possible the destination.
