Fresh Deals

Ray Ban

Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses
Save 50%: Manufactured since 1956, the Ray-Ban Wayfarer is something of a gold standard for acetate sunglasses. It is exceedingly popular and looks good on a wide variety of face shapes. The frame silhouette is bold, but not over-the-top, and it can compliment almost any style of dressing. Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can save 50 percent on a pair of these iconic Italian-made sunglasses — you’ll only spend $72. — John Zientek

Alpina Seastrong Automatic
Save $995: Alpina is probably best known for its pilot’s watches and chronographs, but the brand knows its way around a diver. The Seastrong Automatic, for example, pairs an edgy case design with a super clean dial and an automatic movement. It’s also rated water resistant to 300 meters. Normally the watch retails for $1,495 (not exactly cheap) but thanks to a successful campaign on Massdrop, you can get it right now for just $500. You’ll just have to hurry, seeing as this deal will only last for two more days. — Andrew Connor

Clarks Desert Boot
Save 40%: The enduring popularity of Clarks Desert Boots is well-founded. The casual style is incredibly versatile, making it ideal for everyday wear. It pairs well with jeans or chinos, and it’s appropriate for a range of weather conditions. Desert Boots have a simple construction featuring a leather upper, a crepe sole and an EVA footbed — they’re lightweight, comfortable and easily packable. Now at Zappos, you can save 40 percent on a pair in dark gray suede. That means this casual footwear style will only run you $84. — John Zientek

Darn Tough

Darn Tough Steely Sock Two-Pack
Save 29%: Darn Tough prides itself on making the most durable socks, ever. It’s so confident in that fact that it guarantees every pair unconditionally, for life — no questions, asked, no conditions (you have to pay to ship them to the company’s Vermont headquarters). Darn Tough makes socks for running, cycling, mountain biking, skiing, hiking, mountaineering, wearing around town and more. All are equally tough and constructed with a range of materials, including ethically-sourced merino wool. A Darn Tough classic, the Steely Sock, is currently on sale as a two-pack on Massdrop. The Steely is a sock designed with extra cushion for long days spent working in boots outdoors. It’s available in a crew length with extra padding in the toes (great for steel-toed boots) or as a taller boot-length model with that cushion throughout.

The two-pack is down from $42 to $30, which may seem like a lot until you consider that with Darn Tough’s lifetime guarantee, you’re making a lifetime investment. — Tanner Bowden

Oak Street

Oak Street Bootmaker’s End of Season Sale
Save Up to 60%: Few and far between are American shoemakers working with decent leather and with the methods of shoemaking that made the Americana look what it is today. Out of Chicago, Oak Street Bootmakers is one of those makers and, seeing as their End of Season Sale has just begun, it’s high time to consider a pair.

Hand-crafted with Horween Chromexcel leather and in classic styles like the trench boot, camp boot, and chukka, Oak Street’s work is entirely unburdened by excess threading and non-essential design elements. The boots are made today by George Vlagos and his team in the same fashion as they were by Vlagos’s master cobbler father decades before. Due to the quality of the leather used, pay keen attention to the sizing section on each product, as some recommend true-to-size fits and other going down a half-size due to the shoe conforming to your foot. — Will Price

Astorflex Bitflex Chelsea Boots
Save $80: Made popular in 1960s England by the likes of John Lennon and Mick Jagger, Chelsea boots have become ubiquitous due to their sheer versatility. They’re a style hack really; a lack of laces imparts a clean and minimal look that pairs well with any outfit while making them casually comfortable at the same time. Astorflex’s dark khaki Bitflex provides a model example of what a Chelsea boot can be: it’s handmade in Italy in an eco-friendly process using premium leather and a natural rubber sole. It sounds like a hippie-fodder, but it’s handsome enough to pull off at sophisticated summer gatherings. Right now, they’re on sale for $80 less than their full price. — Tanner Bowden

Mophie powerStation 5X
Save: Mophie’s powerStation 5X is a super slim portable charger that can, with two USB-A ports, charge two smartphones simultaneously. It’s not the newest or the most powerful portable charger, so it doesn’t have fast charge technology nor can it output enough charge your laptop. However, it’s an extremely portable — plus its silver finish looks nice! — and it has 10,000 mAh, so it can charge a smartphone several times over. And now it’s extremely affordable. The powerStation 5X is still going for $130 on Mophie’s website, but you can get a refurbished model for just $12 on Daily Steals right now. It should be noted that you can buy a brand new powerStation 5X on Amazon for $42 and on Walmart for $40, so the deal isn’t as drastic. But $12 on a super slim and good-looking power bank? And it’s made by one of the best-regarded companies in portable power? That’s a heck of a deal. — Tucker Bowe
