Outdoor Voices is known for being reliably good at a few things, including stylish and sturdy workout clothes, comfy sweatpants nice-looking enough to live in, and collaborations with other cool companies like Nalgene and the (expert-approved) running-shoe brand Hoka One One. Hoka has gained a reputation among athletes, like marathoner Ali Feller, who “like a lot of cushioning” because its lightweight, supportive shoes make you feel like you’re “running on the moon,” as Feller puts it. But the shoes are just as beloved by gymgoers who like to flex their style while flexing their muscles: When we asked cool people about the best workout shoes, this pair of Clifton 7s that Outdoor Voices designed with Hoka took the title of “fugly status gym sneaker” because folks like Bustle’s senior lifestyle and beauty editor Rachel Lapidos told us they dig their “grandpa style.” Whether you’re shopping for fashion or for fitness, today would be a good day to pick up a pair — they’re 20 percent off, bringing their borderline-splurgy price of $130 to a more reasonable $104. At the time of publication, all sizes except for six and 11 are in stock, but Outdoor Voices says the shoes are “almost gone,” so if you like them, don’t dillydally. If you care less about collaborations than you do about color options, you can also get (non-OV) Hoka Clifton 7s on sale in various shades at REI and Zappos (where prices start at $106).
