If you could use a pick-me-up right now, you’re in luck. By chance (and by having ninja-like skills of navigating through the depths of the internet), we stumbled upon a handful of sales going on right now at Amazon where some of our favorite go-to brands for workout clothing and sneakers are steeply marked down. Think: Adidas, New Balance, Nike, and more.
Because sneakers can make or break an entire workout like nothing else (headphones and poor playlists are the only things that even remotely come close), we’ve gone ahead and rounded up the best secret sneaker deals you can snag right now. With markdowns of up to 44 percent off on some of our all-time workout shoes and street style kicks, right now is a very wise time to treat yourself. Check out the best sneaker deals you don't want to miss.
15% off isn't as steep as the other discounts on this list, but, reviewers are so obsessed with Brooks' Ghost 12 running shoe that we've decided to include them anyway. (We're talking 6k ratings with an unheard average of 4.8 stars.) The Ghost 12 shoe is well-suited for various kinds of running: long distance, treadmills, road and track.
New Balance's Fresh Foam Tempo V1 responsive sneakers have a springy feel makes summoning the motivation to *actually* workout all the more easier. And, in terms of aesthetics, that flame motif is also extremely cool.
Changing sneaker culture forever, Adidas proclaimed Ultra Boosts to be the "Greatest Running Shoe of All Time" upon its release. Five years later, many (myself included) would still agree. The high-tech and stylish shoe offers ample support and lightweight versatility. It's extremely rare to find these best-selling, cloud-like shoes marked down for more than 25% off, too.
Finding Ultraboosts for $100 and under is a steal. Here's another pair of super comfy Ultraboosts if you're after supreme comfort. (Some reviewers say the 19s are actually mold better better to the feet, although I personally haven't found this to be the case.)
If your wardrobe is lacking a pair of white sneakers (or if the only pair you own is currently on its last life), you officially have no excuses at this point with adidas's Super Star ALSO marked down, and for over 40% no less.
Smooth, sleek, and forever cool. Few, if any, casual shoes have had as huge an impact on fashion and culture as adidas' beloved Stan Smith. If you've somehow made it this long without a pair in your life, now's a budget-friendly chance to change that.
If you're a CrossFitter, these Nike Metcon 4 XDs were designed specifically just for you. These have a locked-in feel, which provide ideal support for lifting weights.
Sure, the chunky shoe trend you've been seeing everywhere these past few seasons isn't for everyone. But, if you are a fan, allow me to introduce you to these super cushy Air Max 270s.
In a word, (specifically, the word that's most repeated in reviews for these Pumas), the RS-Xs are dope. As one reviewer wrote: "Not sure why people don't talk about this shoe more. I have no reason to go back to Nike Airmaxs. This shoe is a whole ‘nother level of comfort."
New Balance's 608 V5 sneakers might be the most iconic 'dad sneaker' out there. The podiatrist-approved sneakers not only work for everyday lifestyle pursuits, but for cross training as well, making them one of the most versatile picks on this list. Take it from the 11,000+ people who've felt compelled to leave glowing reviews, they're a smart buy.
These cross trainers were designed with breathability and durability in mind and are described as working for any workout. As one reviewer broke it down: "Great quality sneaker! Comfortable, stylish, and with a price that crushes the competition ..."
Three words: Ball. Is. Life. The reviews for these basketball shoes are overwhelmingly positive (they have an average rating of 4.7). As one put it: "Good comfortable shoe with excellent support for my ankles." They come in a handful of other cool color combos too and I warn you now, it's hard to pick a favorite.
The most affordable pick of all the New Balance deals on this list, there's officially no excuse not to upgrade your running shoe game at this price. Reviewers love how comfy and durable these are, too.
Trail running requires a different type of traction and support, and that's where the Arishi V1 trail running shoes come in. Per New Balance, the shoes have been constructed with durable AT Tread outsoles to provide versatile traction for both on and off-road activities.
I personally find it impossible to pick a favorite between Stan Smiths and Club C 85s. If you fall into the Reebok camp, you're in luck because this sleek pair is also on sale right now.
Another top-rated pick for lightweight running shoes, the Fresh Foam Vongo V4 offers responsive cushiness and breathability. Because they're designed with EVA ground soles with rubber pods, these will be well-suited for a variety of surfaces. (EVA, or Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate, is an elastomeric polymer which produces rubber-like materials. This is what gives the soles a flexible, soft feeling.)
