Reproduction of Found Russian Military Trainer
Save $79: What do you get when a Japanese company reproduces an archived Russian military shoe from the 1990s? A shoe that’s wholly aligned with contemporary, outdoor-inspired streetwear, apparently. Reproduction of Found’s Russian Military Trainer seems to fit in remarkably well with today’s styles. The shoe is lightweight with a breathable mesh upper and provides traction in all conditions with a Vibram rubber outsole. Its toe protection and angled fabric overlays give it the look of an approach shoe, but it isn’t quite that rugged. Russia had the original produced in a Slovakian factory, but Reproduction of Found is making this revival by hand in Italy.
Roomba 960 Robo-Vacuums
Save 39%: The Roomba 960 falls into the category of enormously powerful and, typically, wholly unaffordable. Recommended as the “Upgrade Pick” by the super-reviewers at Wirecutter, it is heavy enough and totes enough suction to suck up dog hair, dust and whatever other particles float around one level of your home. Its iAdapt 2.0 Navigation program is able to differentiate change in elevation and act accordingly (it rolls up onto tall rugs to clean, but not down stairs) and it’s controllable via app or Alexa voice control.
Wüsthoff Santoku Knife
Save $95: Today on Amazon, Wüsthoff’s 7-inch santoku-style knife is discounted from its usual $170 to just $75. Santoku knives are characterized by a tip that curves down into the blade, rather than a blade that curves up into a tip. The design ensures the blade is perfectly flat, making it great for push-pull cuts. Wüsthoff’s takes the flat blade and downward sloping tip, but adds some western-style knife features like an ergonomic handle and a heel that slides gently forward, rather than straight down.
Save 40%: Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and this Engineered Garments sale is fully stocked.
Schuberth C4 Spark Helmet
Save 53%: Riding a motorcycle is a delight for the senses, but it can grow a little weary on the ears after a while. Right now, one of the quietest helmets on the market today — the Schuberth C4 Spark Helmet — is on sale for a massive 53 percent off at RevZilla.
