Adidas Terrex Agravic Gore-Tex
Save $80: Never worry about wet feet while you’re out on the trails. The Adidas Terrex Agravic Gore-Tex Shoes are ideal for trail running on damp and muddy paths, as well as on rocky terrain. The Gore-Tex lining creates a breathable, yet waterproof membrane around your foot, preventing water from getting inside, and the continental rubber outsole and distinctive lugs stick any landing. — Meg Lappe
Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses
Save 50%: If you’ve been waiting for a screaming deal to drop some cash on new sunglasses, Nordstrom Rack has a sale for you. Right now, you can get a pair of black Ray-Ban Wayfarers for 50 percent off. The brand’s iconic style Italian-made style normally costs $153, but you now you pick it up for $77 while supplies last. — John Zientek
Technivorm Moccamaster CDG
Save $110: There are many reasons why a high-end coffee maker like Technivorm’s Moccamaster cost as much as it does. You can read about them here. But the upshot is this: it’s a meticulously-engineered machine, certified by America’s foremost coffee authority, and will yield you one of the best quality cups you can get at home. Still, the Moccamaster CDG’s $340 MSRP is one hell of a price to pay, which is why this rare deal from Massdrop is worth jumping on if you value the quality of your morning cup of Joe — you can currently get the brewer for just $230. — Andrew Connor
Hamilton Dress Shirts
Save 30%: Since 1883, Hamilton Shirts has crafted some of the best shirts available. The fourth-generation family-run business is based in Houston, Texas where it makes a range of both custom and ready-to-wear shirts. While the brand’s made-to-measure and bespoke shirts offer the highest level of personalization from fit to fabric preferences to detailing, they also come with the highest price-tag.
If you want a great introduction to the quality of Hamilton shirts, try one of the ready-to-wear dress shirts. The brand teamed up with Todd Snyder to create two shirts fit for any professional occasion. Each shirt features a non-fused spread collar, mother of pearl buttons and a tailored fit. The fabrics — a chambray and a blue piqué cotton — are both woven in Italy from Egyptian cotton. Normally $215, these shirts are now 30 percent off and cost $149. While not inexpensive, it’s actually a great value for the quality of shirt you’ll receive. — John Zientek
Sony X900E 4K HDR TV (2017)
Save $702: Sony makes some of the highest quality and best-designed 4K TVs you can buy. Yes, they’re more expensive than 4K TVs by TCL and Vizio, but you can occasionally find a Sony 4K TV deal that’s almost too good for even budget shoppers to pass up. Case and point, this Sony X900E. The 55-inch model went for $1,700 when it was released last year, in early 2017, but now that Sony is pushing its latest models, you can snag the X900E for less than a grand. Right now you can buy the Sony X900E on Amazon for $998.
More on the X900E. It’s a beautifully thin and near bezel-less 4K TV. It supports HDR10 and HLG high dynamic range technologies (not Dolby Vision, though), and it has a very fast 120Hz refresh rate, so you won’t get the motion blur that’s common when watching sports and flicks. It’s also a smart TV that comes with Chromecast built-in. It works with Alexa and Google Home, too.
Altra Escalante Running Shoe
Save 46%: In 2009, Golden Harper made his first zero-drop running shoes by cooking them in a conventional toaster oven, cutting out the midsoles and leveling the cushioning platform. Now that his running company, Altra, is in its seventh year, the process is definitely more refined, and so are the results.
The Escalante is Altra’s take in an athleisure running shoe. It’s made with an engineered knit upper that provides a spiffy look and a sock-like fit and employs an Altra Ego midsole that’s responsive and soft. Like all of Altra’s shoes, the Escalante has a zero-drop, level running platform, which means that there’s no difference in height between your heel and toes. It also has a wider toe box than other shoes, and these two design technologies together are meant to allow for a more natural running experience.
You can pick up the Escalante right now on Massdrop for 46 percent off its full retail value, which is a solid deal for a high-quality running shoe. — Tanner Bowden
Allen Edmonds Brown Burnished Collection
Save $175: While generally regarded as some of the best value buys in formal footwear, Allen Edmonds dress shoes aren’t exactly cheap — most of its classic styles retail for $425. For Father’s Day, however, the company has slashed $175 off the asking price of a handful of brown dress shoes, including the Fifth Avenue Cap-Toe and McAllister Wingtip oxfords. — Jack Seemer
Patagonia Fleece and Down Outerwear
Save up to 50%: Summer weather is in full force, but that’s not to say you can’t capitalize on the lower prices last season’s best outerwear. Right now, at Backcountry, you can save 50 percent on a Patagonia Synchilla Snap-T Fleece Pullover, Down Snap-T Pullover and 40 percent on a Bivy Down Reversible Vest. — Bryan Campbell
