Fresh Deals


Nike Gyakusou Zoom Fly Sneakers
Save $28: Inspired by Tokyo’s Gyakusou International Running Association, Undercover founder and designer Jun Takahashi has been collaborating with Nike since 2010 to produce impressive collections of forward-thinking, functional running gear and high-end streetwear.

In a time when Nike sells its Epic React Flyknit 2 sneaker for $150 and the Pegasus 35 Turbo running shoe for $180, paying $190 for these special Takahashi-designed Gyakusou sneakers doesn’t seem too wild. And that price seems even less wild when it’s knocked down to $162, which is what you’ll pay today thanks to a sale from Need Supply. Snag yours while they last. — Andy Frakes

Seiko 5 SNZF Sea Urchin Dive Watch
Save 60%: The Seiko 5 SNZF “Sea Urchin” is one of our favorite Seiko 5 models, and right now, you can grab one for $130, which is 60% off MSRP. Available in several dial and strap options, the SNZF features the automatic Seiko 7S36 23-jewel movement, a 42mm stainless steel case, a unidirectional dive bezel and a Hardlex crystal and display case back. With 100m of water resistance and the option for either a stainless steel bracelet or rubber strap, the SNZF is the perfect watch for summer. — Oren Hartov

Fluance RT81 Turntable
Save $40: This is one of our favorite entry-level turntables and it’s currently on sale on Amazon. The RT81 has a built-in preamp so, to play your own records, you just need to add passive bookshelf speakers. (Cool feature: This preamp can be turned off, too, in case you want to add separate components and build out your system later on down the road.) It’s also one of the best-looking turntables out there (in my opinion). If you’re just getting into vinyl and you’re looking for a solid turntable, the RT81 is a great one to consider.

Tojiro DP Gyutou Knife
Save $10: Brandt Cox is a former professional chef and cofounder of New Orleans’ Coutelier NOLA knife shop. When we asked him to name the best bang-for-your-buck Japanese chef’s knife, he didn’t hesitate. “[The Tojiro DP Series] is one of the best price-to-performance value knives we’ve tested or stocked,” he said.

The blade Brandt described as a “gateway drug” into Japanese knives, is on sale today — shoppers can save a modest $10 on the 8.2-inch Tojiro DP Gyutou. The DP series Gyutou is made with hardwearing, wear-resistant VG10 knife steel and the classically thin bevels of a Japanese kitchen knife, but it also sports a western ergonomic-focused handle most Japanese knife newbs are familiar with. Don’t forget to sharpen it. — Will Price

Health Supplements from GNC
Buy One, Get One 50 Percent Off: Supplements can be expensive, typically costing more than a clean diet and a good night’s sleep, but that extra cost is often worth it if you’re shooting for a big race qualifying time or a personal best in the gym. The good news: GNC’s current sale lets you buy one product from their wide selection and get a second one at half-price. If you’re looking for a high-quality protein powder, energy-boosting pre-workout mix, joint health support or meal-replacement shakes, you’ll find a great option or two at GNC without having to empty your billfold. — Andy Frakes

Camp Chef National Parks Cast Iron Set
Save 21%: Camp Chef’s cast iron skillet and dutch oven bundle is currently 21 percent off at Backcountry. Sure, there are backpacking companies that produce collapsible cooking pots and ultralight frying pans that weigh mere ounces, making it hard to imagine hefting cast iron cookware to a campsite. But it’s worth it; those lightweight items suffice on long journeys, but if you don’t have to worry about weight — car camping, rafting trips, short hikes — a cast iron skillet or pot is ideal for outdoor cooking. Not only is cast iron durable, but you can place it directly into a campfire if you need to. Camp Chef’s set is stamped with scenes from America’s iconic National Parks (to help differentiate it from the iron you use at home). — Tanner Bowden

Marshall Acton Wireless Speaker
Save $130: The small-but-powerful Acton wireless speaker boasts up to 50 watts of audio output. There are also classic analog-style controls for bass, treble and volume, not to mention Bluetooth connectivity. Best of all, it’s hugely discounted on eBay right now. (Note: Marshall just announced a second-generation model of this speaker, the Acton II Bluetooth, with a slightly more refined designed and support for Bluetooth 5.0.)
