H by Hudson Crepe-Sole Shoes
Save up to 64%: In recent years, an increasing number of footwear brands have utilized crepe soles on shoes and boots. Commonly associated with Clarks Desert Boots, the soles are made from textured sheets of coagulated latex, a material that offers noticeable flexibility and cushioning. The proliferation of stacked-crepe soles coincides with the footwear industry trending towards chunkier more substantial soles across the board. It’s the opposite of a sleek, polished-leather sole dress shoe; it’s casual, comfortable and versatile.
If that sounds like something you’d like on your feet, head over to Nordstrom Rack. Currently, you can save up to 64 percent on a range crepe-sole shoes from H by Hudson. Prices are $70 or less and styles include derbies, loafers and chukkas, among others. — John Zientek
Save up to 20%: Though it’s not super well-known upon our shores, Yamazaki is a respected producer of home furniture and organizers with a decades-long history. Better yet, Yamazaki has a penchant for pricing its various tables and racks very accessibly, but now Huckberry is marking down a selection of the brand’s products up to 20 percent. Choose between side tables, key hooks, towers and racks to keep your various home goods in their place. — Andrew Connor
Alpinestars Rideout Scion 2L Waterproof Jacket
Save 48%: Going from riding a motorcycle to casually hanging out with friends in town is more of a balancing act than you might think when it comes to gear. You want to make sure you’re safe for the ride and not head out in a t-shirt and tattered jeans, but if you show up in full race leathers or a full-body high-vis riding suit, you’re going to garner some looks. The Alpinestars Rideout Scion 2L Waterproof Jacket lands in between those to extremes, albeit closer to the more relaxed side of the spectrum. — Bryan Campbell
Newest Carry-On Suitcase
Save $100s: It’s hard not to love the look of Rimowa suitcases. They’re tough and industrial while somehow also being something close to elegant. A big downside, of course, is their sky-high price.
Not so with this look-alike from Newest. The suitcase – which comes in sizes ranging from 20 to 29-inches and colors like black, red, rose gold and silver – has a cease-and-desist worthy resemblance to the famed German luggage producer. We can’t vouch for this suitcase’s quality, but for the price, it’s hard not to want to take a gamble on it. Get one before LVMH’s lawyers find out.

Essential Daypacks from Patagonia, The North Face and More
Save up to 70%: Even if you’re not carrying textbooks anymore, and even if it’s been a few years since your last trail hike or camping trip, there’s nothing like a great mid-sized pack to get you through a day when you have to tackle, well, a little bit of everything.
This big sale from Mountain Steals has great daypacks from Mystery Ranch, The North Face, Patagonia and more, meaning whether you need waterproofing, external straps, a laptop sleeve or anything else, you’ll be able to find it here.
