9 Things on Sale You’ll Definitely Want To Buy: From Merrell to Le Specs

If you like to spend your time outside, we found some discounted water shoes. If you’ve been jet-setting all summer, we found luggage for that. And if you are more of a homebody, we found some 30-percent-off loungewear for you, too. We, of course, included some selects from Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, which is still going strong, but if you want to see more of those deals, you can shop them here.

We’ve written about many Yamazaki storage solutions, which are sleek, stylish, and functional, and this box is no different. It’s recommended for storing a number of things, from cleaning supplies to toys. I own it too and know that when filled with ice, it also makes the perfect mini cooler for a summer barbecue.

In Strategist writer Lauren Ro’s hunt for the best water shoes, four people mentioned Merrell’s Hydro Mocs — including Chris Black, who calls them a “shoe-sandal hybrid.” Former Strategist editor Anthony Rotunno says they’re “what I’ll wear when I’m walking into a body of water, like a lake, and want to ensure no flotsam or jetsam float between my feet and the shoe.” We found this plum pair for Ro in Backcountry’s sales bin, perfect for whatever water sports you have planned for the rest of the summer.

They’re available in men’s sizes too. The porous upper, Rotunno adds, helps both your feet and the shoes dry faster.

There’s less than a week left to shop Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, but there are still plenty of deals to take advantage of before prices go back up on August 1. This is my go-to for a personal carry-on item. It holds a ton, feels fancy, and wipes clean. Best of all, the pouch it comes folded up in doubles as a perfect makeup or toiletry bag.

It’s rare to find Nike sneakers that still have a bunch of sizes left in Nordstrom’s sales bins, so we think these Waffle Ones, in a super-cool mocha colorway, won’t last for long.

These Eberjey-eque pajamas are already a great affordable dupe, but during the sale they are an even better deal for just $50.
