The end of summer is no cause for celebration, but the sales that come with the start of a new season are. Just in time for fall, REI is ripe with deals on camping gear, bikes, and activewear—all of which are up to 50 percent off (hooray for savings). Of all the markdowns, REI’s shoe section is where you’ll want to be. You’ll find comfy running shoes, supportive sandals, and boots majorly discounted ahead of autumn. Bonus: Podiatrists love them!

From Hoka’s Carbon X3 road running shoes (now $60) to New Balance’s lightweight V3 sneakers (now $91), there are plenty of podiatrist-beloved brands and styles to choose from. Don’t wait on these deals, though! Supplies are limited, so once an item sells out, it’s gone for good.

The shoe is also made of a breathable knit material, so sweaty feet are no longer a concern. For a limited time, you can save 70 percent on this podiatrist- and runner-favorite.
