If you've been jonesin' for some huaraches now that it's getting a little warmer outside, well, I've got good news.
Xero Shoes just launched a big sale offering 50% off their "Summer Color" soles — I'm talking about the electric green, light blue, and light red rubber soles in either 4mm Connect or 6mm Contact. The sale will end midnight May 15, 2013, so take advantage while you can!
Thanks to this deal, you can get a kit for as low as $9.97 (a kid's 4mm Connect kit, which I'll be picking up to make a new pair for my growing three year old and Xero Shoes tester.
Furthermore, Xero Shoes just started offering their new and improved laces. These new laces are more flexible, smoother, allow for a flatter knot, and come in 17 colors/styles, three of which have reflective tracers for night-time visibility. All the sale Xero Shoes come with the new laces; meanwhile, they're closing out their old laces for a buck/pair. Not a bad deal if you aren't after the new hotness in huaraches lacing!

Massey's Outfitters is running their biggest sale of the year a.k.a. the "Festival Sale" through May 6, 2013. This means that tons of products on their site are marked down and whatever products that aren't on sale can have a coupon/promo code applied to them — FEST20 (a few exclusions apply).
I took a look around their site for the usual suspects to see what deals I could find. Aside from some sales on Vibrams and New Balance Minimus shoes, the most standout sale was on Merrells. And specifically, you'll be interested in knowing they've got the recently released Vapor Gloves for right at $64! That's 20% off their MSRP, making it a no-brainer to get what is, in my opinion, one of the best "barefoot shoes" yet.
That's a bold statement, but just read my review if you want the details behind it. It doesn't hurt that at this price, they're also one of the most affordable minimalist shoes around.
Go to Massey's and check out the sale!

Flash sale site TheClymb has launched a new VIVOBAREFOOT sale, too! IMPORTANT NOTE: If you're not yet a member of the Clymb, that link is going to ask you to login or join. Use my invite link here (We get a little credit for this, which is frequently put towards gnabbing shoes for reviews on BirthdayShoes!).
If you've never been a member of Clymb before, you can always leave the program at any time and it's free to join.
I called out the VIVO BAREFOOT Oak in the images above mostly because if you go to Vivo's official website, you'll find they are missing — apparently the Oak is not in the spring line-up (Is it discontinued? Don't know). The Oak has been one of my favorite Vivos of all time (wore a pair of them yesterday in fact), so if you've been sitting on the fence, well, you might want to pick up a pair—on sale—while they last (they have a lot of sizes as of 11:30 Eastern Daylight, 4/26/2013).
And if you're after other Vivos like the recently reviewed Breatho Trails, The Clymb has those featured in this sale, too.
