Endless 20% off select items $100+ Sale: Use code FRIENDS2
Code Expires 5/17. As always, Endless offers free 2-day shipping and free returns.
“Select” usually spells disaster for a sale. Throw a spend minimum in there and that’s usually annoying. That’s not the case here. There are 7,600 “select” items available for the FRIENDS2 code discount, as long as your purchase totals over a hundred bucks. Plenty of items under $100 are up for the code, but your purchase needs to be $100 or more before you apply it to get the discount.
Discount or not, Endless still has the fastest, easiest shipping and return policy of any online dealer. Free 2-day shipping on most items, and some of the newest gets to you overnight for free. Returns are also completely free. Here’s a fraction of the 7600 items that are worth a glance:
Calvin Klein Gareth – $103.96 ($139.95)
If this sale would have happened last week, these easily would have slipped into the best dress shoes under $100 post. Yes, even with the discount they’re about $4 over a hundred, but with free two day shipping and free returns? C’mon. Simplicity is what some guys absolutely crave. Or, a price point that’s not wince-worthy. Just a black laceup. Comfortable enough. Sleek.
You’re going to really have to be in love with boat shoes, a major Allen Edmonds honk, or both, to spend over $150 on a pair of boat shoes… but they are going to be top of the line. Made in the USA.
Paging our man Sabir Peele who just participated in J&Ms new campaign for these. Made of italian calfskin or suede, and man does that “camel” suede look like it could be the perfect summer shoe. Endless claims these are “made in Spain.” Really?
Sebago Brattle – $104 – $112 ($130 – $140)
Good to see that Sebago is still making these. Full review over this way. Leather is real, sole is grippy, and while not suit-worthy, they look awesome with jeans and chinos. A favorite for sure.
Sebago Tremont Boot – $99.96 ($145)
Meanwhile, these are the non brogued boot version of the Brattles. For those who just want a plain friggin’ boot. Nothing too hiking/workish, yet not dressed up either. The complete middle ground. Made in the Dominican and a good option for someone who wants a desert boot like shoe with more structure. Already on sale.
Rockports can be shockingly comfortable. Like, go ahead and hit the treadmill with em’ on your lunch hour comfortable (but don’t do that). They put the Adidas adiPRENE cushioning system in the heel, but up until recently, they were putting some subtle branding on the heel in the form of three cut out stripes. Looked like the heels had teeth. That’s not the case with these, and the medallion and slim overall shape might mark a huge shift towards better styling for Rockport. Maybe. We’ll see.
Allen Edmonds Neumok – $200 ($250)
Endless is one of the few places to find AEs, even their newer styles, on sale from time to time. Gave away a pair of these back in March. They’re different, but not in a bad way. Each pair comes with two different sets of laces. Six color options to pick from.
Not usually a huge fan of saddles, but these two color combinations are awfully… tasty? Raisin/Black and Cognac/Brown. I like raisins. I also like cognac. Maybe that explains it.
Just a lace-up with true oxford closed lacing. Cap toe, nice looking color, and around $120.
Not a lot of us are thinking about wet, boot worthy weather right now. But for $120? And they’re waterproof? Nice.
Frye Dakota – $99.40 ($178) & Frye Archie – $122.39 ($228)
Annnnnd meanwhile, there’s these beasts. Both are already on sale, and come in other colors at different price points. Both are made in Mexico and come with thick lug soles. Vibrams on the Archie hikers.
Now that the Fairfax has been discontinued, this might be the wildest/least traditional style that AE is offering. Almost a whole-cut, but not quite. Cap toe that’s not really a cap toe. If there was such a thing as go-to-hell shoes, these might be them. Note: Since these might be too wild for some, know that AE’s well loved Strand is also on sale.
McClain? Or McClane? (warning: language) These aren’t available on Endless, but instead, they’re a closeout style that recently hit the clearance section on AllenEdmonds.com. That deep, reddish brown merlot color just doesn’t get enough credit. These come in that color, for a little under $100 off. The question is, what’s your take on that extra sweep of broguing? Starting to look a little too much like the Batmobile?
Mini Steal the Style: Magnanni Monk – $300 ($375) vs. Mercanti Monk – $149.99
The Magnanni’s are twice the price, and the Mercanti’s don’t have a stitched sole… but… Wait for a DSW sale and those Mercs will get $10 – $20 cheaper. Ships free with SHIPR too. Made in Italy, while the Magnanni’s are made in Spain. Hooray for the Euro.
The Endless Extra 20% off “select” orders over $100 code FRIENDS2 is set to expire 5/17/12.
