These Handmade Loafers Are the Driving Shoe You Need
Summer is the perfect time to hop in the car and drive — road trips have a bit more allure when the sun shines for over twelve hours. The accessory you need for each trip is a spiffy pair of driving moccasins — whether you plan to cruise in an Italian car or not. The Minnetonka P.W. Driving Collection, a tribute to Minnetonka’s founder, Philip W Miller, brings the first driving moccasins (made in 1986) back in a beautiful leather package. There’s no need to wear socks in these flexible and comfortable slip-ons. Each pair is custom-made in three widths, split and extended sizes ranging from 6 to 16.

Fresh Deals


Stanley’s Classic Vacuum Bottle
Save 50%: This classic un-bust-able 1.1 quart vacuum bottle from Stanley has been a manly must-have since it hit the market many moons ago. And that’s for good reason — it keeps your stuff hot or cold for a full 24 hours, it’s blessedly leak-proof, it can handle some abuse and it’s always going to look damn good doing it. Plus it holds way more than one cup of coffee, meaning you can pour a bit at a time and keep the rest of it piping hot all day long.

Your grandad definitely had one, your dad probably has one, and if you count hot coffee among your daily survival necessities (we sure do) you need one too. — Andy Frakes


Everlane Pay What You Wish Sale
Save 30%: Everlane, the brand known for producing beautiful pieces set to last for life in total transparency. Everlane is running a “Choose What You Pay” sale, where you pick the item you want and then select if you want 5-percent, 15-percent or 25-percent off. While we can’t quite understand why someone would opt to pay $15 for a tee, when you can choose to pay $12, but Everlane certainly has more faith in its customers than we do in ourselves. To help you take full advantage of the sale, we pulled together a few of our favorites. — Meg Lappe


Bilt Explorer Dry Bag
Save 58%: Adventure motorcycle rides, if done right, will see every obstacle and element of nature thrown at you. You might keep the gear you need readily available in your tank bag or panniers, but as far as clothes, underwear, socks, all the things you’ll dig for at the end of the day, you want them safe, secluded and dry during the ride.

For that, a roll-top dry bag like the BiLT Explorer is crucial on any ride that has a chance of not being 100 percent sunny and dirt-free. Today, on Cycle Gear, you can get the 39-liter BiLT Explorer Dry Bag for 58 percent off, save $70 and have the piece of mind when you head out on your next two-wheeled off-road excursion. — Bryan Campbell


Rev’It Turini Riding Shoes
Save 30%: High tops like the Turinis are casual enough to wear on days even when you don’t throw a leg over your bike, but you can count on them if things go south and you go down out on a ride. More than that, like some of the best-designed pieces of gear, when you get wherever you are going, they blend in and don’t announce to the whole room you just got off a bike.

Rev’It Turini Riding Shoes usually sell for $230, but today, on Revzilla you can get a pair for $160. Being European-based, Rev’It does make the shoe in Euro sizes, but fits true to size, just make sure to check the sizing chart and purchase appropriately. — Bryan Campbell


Anova Bluetooth Sous-Vide Circulator
Save 31%: Sous-vide circulators have quickly become stalwarts in the modern home kitchen thanks to their relatively simple operation and consistent results — there really isn’t a better way to get a perfectly medium-rare steak at home. So, if you still have yet to hop aboard the express sous-vide train barreling towards Flavorville, consider snatching up this Anova Bluetooth circulator, marked down to just $103 on Amazon right now — 31 percent off its retail price. What’s more, if you want to upgrade to the Wi-Fi-equipped model, that’ll only cost you an extra $26. — Andrew Connor


Orient Watches
Save 45% Off Orient Watches For Father’s Day: Orient, maker of affordable mechanical and automatic dress and sport watches (including several that showed up in our 30 Best Watches Under $1,000) is offering 45% off site-wide in honor of Father’s Day in addition to free domestic shipping. If you’re in need of that last-minute Father’s Day gift (or if your dad has been wearing the same beat-to-shit quartz watch for the past 25 years and you’re finally looking for your chance to get him back on the mechanical watch bandwagon), this is your chance! Orient has been developing and manufacturing their own movements since their establishment in 1950, and there are very few opportunities to get into a watch with an in-house movement at these price points. — Oren Hartov


Vans Classic Slip-On 98 DX
Save 28%: Vans slip-ons are quintessential summer shoes: they have a simple easy-on-easy-off style, they’re lightweight, they’re affordable. What’s more, they look just as good after a season of wear as they do out of the box. If you’re in need of a solid casual sneaker for the warmer months, head over to Need Supply. They’re offering 28 percent off the Classic Slip-On 98 DX in both blue and burgundy colorways — that’s $21 saved. — John Zientek


Havaianas Top Max Flip Flops
Save 50%: No matter your gym routine, you should always have a basic pair of flip flops in your bag to wear in the locker room after your workout. While there are countless options available, the simple and affordable Top Max flip flops from Havaianas are hard to beat. Available in both black and blue colorways, they are now 50 percent off at Nordstrom Rack and cost just $12. — John Zientek
