The Review Rundown:
Confession. I really love sneakers – it’s kind of my thing. Slow clap for athleisure! Sure, casual dress is front and center right now, with so many of us working from home, lounging at home, learning from home, and well, not allowed to leave home. But comfortable dress had really been ramping up (Hadn’t it? Wishful thinking?) even before the days of spending so much time at home. So many of us are starting things off with New Year’s resolutions, and at the top of my list is to step up my fitness game. That being said, I’ll need a little motivation. If I’m going to step away from the wine and cheese, let’s make it worth my while. At the top of my list is a new pair of sneakers, so when people needed gift ideas, I asked for a gift card. Because everyone in my family knows enough not to actually pick out a pair for me. Bold.
I decided to head over to Finish Line and browse sneakers, accessories, and clothing. They have a wide selection of athletic wear, and it’s easy to navigate through all of the different sales. Starting with markdowns on women’s sneakers, they have quite a few options available, and cover many of the top selling brands. I tend to go for neutrals (read: black or gray) and these Adidas Originals Swift Run come in several colors, have tons of 5 star reviews, and are under $100.
One cool feature over on their site? The “Releases” tab. If you click here, you’ll see a calendar of pending sneaker releases by date, brand and style. But they take things a step further. If you’re waiting for a new pair of sneakers to be released, you can choose to be reminded, and the release will be added to your calendar in iCal/Outlook, or Google Calendar. This almost makes it seem business-like. I feel like this will come in handy for the ‘tween and teen crowd. They definitely seem to be obsessed with newest styles, and when they are available for purchase. (Air Jordans?!)
If you’re shopping for everyone in the family, they have new releases, as well as markdowns for both, kids and adults. With some discounts being as high as 50%, it is possible to find great options at a decent price point. Having so many options makes it easy to shop – whether you’re looking for the newest release, or need to scoop three pairs for back to school, and are on the hunt for a great deal. You can hit their sale page, as well as their “Hot Deals,” which features their latest in a changing rotation of savings and deals (ex: select brands for 40% and 50% off, 2 for $40 t-shirts, etc…)

The Real Deal With Coupons + Promo Codes:
More often than not, searching online for coupon codes can be a struggle. It always seems like mission impossible to score the ones that actually do work. We’ve searched high and low, and often seem to come up short. So if you don’t have any luck out in the vast land of the internet, there are still a few ways to save some money.
They do at times put available (and working!) coupon codes on their site. So it’s worth checking out their website to see if there are ways to save in that regard. Otherwise, your best bet is to shop their sale page, where you can find discounts of up to 50% off select styles or brands. This is also where you’ll find any “Hot Deals.” The loyalty program will get you free shipping for a year, and the accumulation of point over time will save you cash in the future. Check it out here!
