The Metcon is one of our top picks to wear to the gym or to the Crossfit box, thanks to its heavy-duty outsole and crushingly strong support underfoot.

Need Supply Co. is offering 30 percent off of the Achilles, Tournament and Bball styles and prices start at $296. Each Italian-made shoe riffs on a classic sneaker silhouette but features top-tier leather, a durable rubber sole and heat pressed gold serial number detailing.

Chuck Taylor All Star ‘70s High Top Sneakers
Save 20%: Converse makes a replica of the Chuck Taylor All Star high tops it produced in the ‘70s and it’s far superior compared to normal Chucks. The upper is cut from durable organic canvas and features nickel eyelets and reinforced stitching. The thick rubber sole has higher foxing than modern Chucks and the insole is padded with OrthoLite Cushioning. Now at East Dane, you can save 20 percent on this classic warm-weather style in both black and white colorways. Normally $85, the style now costs $68 and is stocked in a range of sizes. — John Zientek
Todd Snyder x New Era Denim Caps
Save 25%: Todd Snyder’s collaboration with baseball cap brand New Era is one of many for the brand and its namesake designer, but its easily one of its most accessible.
The finished product is a minimal-yet-different enough take on the classic 59Fifty cap — your favorite team’s logo sewn into a hat made of denim that’s no longer made. Cone Denim lived as America’s lone selvedge denim manufacturer up until closing its White Oak plant in Greensboro, North Carolina in late 2017, and was hallowed by the denim-obsessed (and found its way into our Father’s Day guide this year).
The cap usually is 25 percent on Todd Snyder’s site right now. –Will Price
Brazyn Collapsible Foam Roller
Save 20%: In lieu of keeping a personal massage therapist on retainer, a foam roller is an athlete’s best friend. Rolling out muscles after an extended workout can help them by stimulating blood flow, which aids in recovery, and by introducing mobility into tissue that’s stuck together, tense or overused. It helps to reduce tension, increase mobility and lessen overall stress.
For all its benefits, the foam roller is an incredibly simple tool (it’s just a tube). It does have one major downfall though, and that’s portability. Sure, foam rollers with hollow interiors can be stuffed full of clothing and packed in a duffel, but it isn’t the most refined solution.
Brazyn, a company founded by former NFL tight end Nate Lawrie, solved that problem by creating a foam roller that’s collapsible. And while that may seem like a backward step in the design of an item that’s supposed to be able to support 350 pounds, it works. I’ve been using the Morph for over a year now, and it hasn’t inadvertently collapsed underneath me a single time. Its portability isn’t just a gimmick either — the Morph is still slightly chunky, but is definitely flat enough to stash in a suitcase or backpack. Any time I expect to get active while on a trip, the Morph comes with.
Huckberry is currently selling Brazyn’s collapsible foam roller for 20 percent off. If you’re a frequent traveler, or simply have been in the market for a foam roller and have yet to commit to a purchase, this is a great one to consider. — Tanner Bowden
Save $40: For every person out there willing to spend thousands on a high-end watch, there are a great deal more people just looking for a handsome, affordable piece of wristwear; for them, this quartz-and-battery-powered Braun is perfect. It has a clean, Bauhaus-derived dial design that harkens back to the brand’s early days of penning appliances and home products with ground-breaking design, and a 38mm by 9mm case that’ll look fit on pretty much anyone’s wrist without looking too big or small. Right now you can get it for just $60, making it a no-brainer if you’ve just been wanting a cheap, handsome timepiece. — Andrew Connor
Quality Sunglasses from Mr Porter
Save up o 50%: If you have yet to invest in a pair of well-made sunglasses for the summer months, nows the time. Mr Porter is offering up to 50 percent off a range of quality frames during its Spring Sale and featured brands include Oakley, Persol and Garrett Leight California Optical, among others. While there’s still a wide selection left, peruse some of our favorites under $250 for inspiration. — John Zientek
Save on Premium Athletic Gear
Save up to 50%: There’s an uncomfortable paradox that comes with premium athletic gear. It’s in the nature of those who strive for ever-increasing performance to want the best equipment available, but at the same time, it can be gut-wrenching to pony up $300 for a bike helmet you might smash, or $80 for a t-shirt you’ll soak in sweat over and over again on long runs.
High-end gear is high-end for a reason though, and it’s often the case that you forget about that extra money as you cruise through a favorite loop in total comfort. That euphoria only increases when you know that you got that gear at a substantial discount from, for instance, an online sale.
Right now Mr. Porter, an online retailer that specializes in upscale menswear, is selling gear for running, cycling, hiking, sailing, tennis, golf and more at up to 50 percent off. The sale is vast — highlights include POC’s newest cycling helmet and Nike running shoes. There’s much more than that though and sizes are becoming more limited, but it’s worth a thorough sift-through (especially if you need one or two pieces to round out your kit). — Tanner Bowden
Save up to 55%: Need a lighter footwear option for the warmer months? Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can save on beach-friendly espadrilles from Soludos. Pick from solid color leather uppers or striped canvas uppers — prices start at just $25. — John Zientek
Save up to 50%: Now at Mr Porter’s Spring Sale, you can save up to 50 percent on Filson bags if you’re quick. Prices start at just $68 and you can choose from a Dopp kit, a backpack, a briefcase and more. If you’re in need of a versatile and durable American-made bag, this is a sale you don’t want to miss. — John Zientek
Save up to 50%: Few garments are as universal as the T-shirt. While the classic tee has its roots in early-20th-century sportswear and military garb, it is now a widespread staple of wardrobes regardless of occupation or income. If you need to stock up on a few new tees, Mr Porter is currently offering up to 50 percent off a range of quality options at its Spring Sale. Prices start at $18 and brands include J.Crew, Outerknown, Velva Sheen and more. There’s a range of colors and fits to choose from, but don’t hesitate if you see something you like — sizes are limited. — John Zientek
Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones
Save $70: These in-ear headphones are sweat resistant, sound great and allow users to adjust the audio’s EQ through an app. Also, if you know Bose’s in-ear headphones fit in your ears, these will fit you as well. (All Bose in-ear headphones use the same Stay Hear+ eartips.) Normally $149, you can score a pretty good deal on eBay right now by picking the Bose SoundSport Wireless in-ear headphones for just $79. They’re “manufacturer refurbished,” it’s true, but eBay has a 30-day and money back return policy in case you’re not happy with them.
TRX Tactical + 12-Week Conditioning Program
Save $60: The beauty of the TRX Tactical system is that you can literally workout anywhere. Workouts are created based on research and regiments from the military and are all found in the app. The TRX Tactical and 12-week conditioning program is on sale today for $60 off. — Meg Lappe
Mr Porter Sale
Save up to 50%: Online men’s clothing powerhouse Mr Porter is currently having its Spring Sale where a wide range of casual garments are up to 50 percent off. There’s a great mix of popular and hard-to-find brands represented and you can browse products from Vans, Blue Blue Japan, Filson, Garrett Leight California Optical and more. Mr Porter’s normally steep prices are far more accessible now, making this a great chance to stock up on summer wardrobe staples — but if you see something you like, act fast because sizes are limited. — John Zientek
Smith Optics Sunglasses
Save 20%: Fifty-three years ago, a practicing orthodontist named Bob Smith revolutionized winter sports by creating the first pair of ski goggles to incorporate a sealed thermal lens and a breathable foam liner. Since then, Smith (the company) has become one of the most recognized sunglasses brands in action sports.
Smith is consistently on the progressive side of the industry, innovating new technologies like interchangeable lenses for both sunglasses and goggles and improved ventilation that prevents fogging. ChromaPop is Smith’s color-boosting polarized lens technologies that creates more contrast and clarity by filtering the wavelengths of light that our eyes have trouble distinguishing between. In summary: colors appear more vibrant, details are more clear.
Right now Huckberry is offering two styles of ChromaPop-enhanced lifestyle shades at 20% off. The Lowdown 2 is a Wayfarer-inspired frame while the Colson is slightly more sporty. Both look casual enough for everyday style and feature all the performance-oriented tech that has kept Smith at the top of its class for over half a decade. — Tanner Bowden
Milo Dutch Oven
Save $10: The Milo Dutch Oven exists in a category of its own in the dutch oven market — its enamel coating, lid fit and warranty far exceed that of the Lodge Dutch Oven that’s $40 cheaper, and is on par with Le Creuset’s product that’s almost four times more expensive.
Though it compares well with Le Creuset’s dominating dutch oven in its cooking prowess, it’s not a knockoff of the iconic French brand. Milo’s oven is heavy — 12 pounds to be exact — putting it more in line with the weight of Staub (another French dutch oven maker). The added weight permits it greater heat retention and evenness in heating, which essentially means it won’t lose as much heat as a Le Creuset will when you drop a load of cold veggies in it. It does borrow what may be the subtlest of Le Creuset’s design in the light-colored interior, which allows you to monitor the status of browning meats much simpler than a dark interior.
The Milo, which normally sells for $95, is $85 on Huckberry today. — Will Price
PicoBrew Model C Homebrewer
Save $205: PicoBrew’s Model C homebrewer is probably the most hands-off home beer brewer money can buy. It’s essentially a Keurig, but spits out fresh beer instead of watery almost-coffee — pop in a PicoPak (a pre-portioned mix of hops, barley, various flavor agents), load in the appropriate amount of water and press go. The machine has a built-in self-cleaning function and all ancillary parts are dishwashable. You can select PicoBrew’s in-house PicoPak brews, or from its long list of beers from various craft breweries (21st Amendment, Rogue and Coronado Brewing among them). You can also make your own beer on PicoBrew’s website.
The Model C usually sells for north of $500 — today it’s more than $200 off. — Will Price
