Sales: Merrell Barefoots 40% Off, leather KSO Treks for $31

Nobody wants to maximalist prices for minimalist shoes. Thankfully, if you're here you're well on your way to hooking up a sale or two on some of the most popular minimalist shoes around. Let's dive in:

Merrell Barefoots 40% off!

EMS has various Merrell Barefoots at 40% off here.

If you're a huge fan of the original Trail Glove, you can pick up a pair for $66. Been wanting a Gore-tex "barefoot running shoe" but been unwilling to shell out the almost-$200 for a pair? Well, EMS has those 40% off, too, so they're only ... $102 (Still better than $170!). Go to EMS.com!

Leather KSO Treks are on Clearance for $31

You can pick up the kangaroo leather-clad original KSO Trek for $31 here. As of this posting most sizes are available and in both black or brown. I'm a little shocked that this deal is available. This is a whopping 75% off the original KSO Trek price!

Given KSO Treks are going the way of the do-do, if you always wanted a pair or need a back-up/replacement pair, here's your chance. Go to REI.com.

Various Vibrams, Vivo Barefoots up to 70% off!

Grab FiveFingers or Vivo Barefoots at sales ranging from 9 to 70% off.

On the Vibram front, you can grab Bikila FiveFingers for $37, KomodoSports (a.k.a. KMD Sports as they're now called) for $55, or Bikila LS for $50, among other options.

They've also got a ton of Vivo Barefoots on sale. Everything from the dressier Gobi leather boot to the Hybrid golf shoe.

Those are the sales today. Be a savvy/smart shopper and hook up discounted "barefoot"/minimalist shoes (or huaraches sandals) while ya can.

And if you hear of any great deals, let me know!

Vivo Barefoot 50% Off, New Balance Minimus Sale

Vivo Barefoot 50% Off, New Balance Minimus Sale

Vivo Barefoot Sale!

Flash sale outdoor gear site LeftLane Sports is running a new flash sale on Vivo Barefoot shoes that includes a large variety of Vivos shoes—if you can find your size!

As these things go, probably the hottest items (if I had to guess) will be the various Vivo Barefoot Oaks listed on the sale and you should note that the Oak didn't make the Spring 2013 line (replaced, perhaps, by the Vivo Jay). The Legacy is also one is worth considering as a business casual barefoot shoe. Finally, note that you can get the men's Ultra Pure for $25! I'm hooking up another pair of these myself as this is one of the best, underrated minimalist shoes for the summer.

If you're not a member of LeftLane use my invite to sign up so you can get $10 credit off your first purchase over $50 (which is virtually. Orders over $75 also get free shipping.

Links to the sale:

Becoming a "member" of LeftLane is as simple as providing basic info (name/email). There are no strings attached (no fees to join) other than the fact you'll get emails about all future upcoming sales. Of course, you can quit the email list at any time.

If you can't find your size, use my invite code to join for your $10 credit and keep an eye on future sales—Vivos tend to pop up periodically!

New Balance Minimus Sale!

LeftLane is also featuring a New Balance Minimus sale. They're stock/sizes are a bit limited (at least for men—lots of Zeros available for women!), but if you're after some Minimus (Minimi?), you might take a look:

Just picked up some women's Minimus Trail Zeros for the Mrs. for $60.

Vibram Bikilas for $28!

Finally, you can get a pair of the Bikila FiveFingers for the cheapest price I've ever seen—$28! Check this screenshot, note that this is a legit sale, and woot it up (click here)! This sale will end in 15 hours at midnight May 24, 2013!

Good luck!

$50 gets you $100 off FiveFingers (and more) from VibramFiveFingers.com

$50 gets you $100 off FiveFingers (and more) from VibramFiveFingers.com


There's a new deal out—one that ends after December 19th—that lets you spend $50 to get $100 worth of anything on VibramFiveFingers.com.

Taking advantage simply requires creating an account and forking over the $50 to purchase the deal. This gets you a code that you can use to redeem for $100+ of merchandise at VibramFiveFingers.com. What more, all orders in the U.S. and Canada through December 2012 get free shipping.

Note: code-driven orders off VibramFiveFingers.com in 2013 will see normal shipping rates applied and your code will expire February 5, 2013. Also, you can't stack coupons. So you can't, for example, buy a pair of Lontras ($150) plus 4 pairs of Injini Crew socks ($12/each) for $100 via two codes. However, you can buy multiple codes for separate orders.

Best deals? Anything that tallies up to $100. SeeYa LS MSRPs at $100; so you get them for $50. Same goes for the SeeYa which is $100 regularly. KomodoSport LS is $110, so they'll set you back $60 with this deal ($50 off). The Speed XC is $140 so you save $50 and get them for $90 ($50 coupon + $40 over hundred). Make sense?

Questions/comments let me know!

M/W Bikilas for $36 Shipped Free or Women's SeeYas for $56

M/W Bikilas for $36 Shipped Free or Women's SeeYas for $56

CitySports has a deal running today only — 12/12/12 (Dec. 12, 2012) — for an extra 20% off of already marked-down merchandise.


In the world of Vibram FiveFingers, there aren't a ton of options that meet this double-sale criteria but the best deals as I see them are men's and women's bikilas in blue/grey and red/grey, respectively, at $45 before the extra 20% off. So once you knock off the 20%, that makes them $36. What more, it seems that these ship free!

So you can get Bikilas for $36. That is, I think, the cheapest I've seen any pair of FiveFingers ever. Also, women's SeeYas can be had for $56 using the code!

Here are the clearance items. To get the extra 20% off, you just need to enter 121212 as your code.

Finally, you can get 25% off regularly priced items at CitySports using the code, too. Here are all the Vibrams CitySports has available.
