Welcome to Kind of a Big Deal, a daily roundup of great sales on the brands and items you love (tech, shoes, style, travel, etc.), as well as great new products. Please note: Deals are subject to change at the whim of the merchants mentioned.

New Republic Suede Chelsea Boot
This particular rendition of a chelsea boot by menswear guru Mark McNairy is currently going for a very solid $50 and available in every size. And yes, it’s camo, so you probably don’t want to wear it every day, but at the price, it’s great as a nice-to-have shoe.

Anker PowerPort Cube
Might not be the best-looking object, but this nifty high-speed charger features three AC outlets, three USB ports and an adhesive strip so you can stick this under your desk. Now 61% off.

TRIWA x Oliver Cabell
Officially on sale tomorrow — but these collabs tend to sell out instantly — this is a handsome Italian leather white sneaker combo’d with a like-minded, 42mm white, gold and blue timepiece.

If you’re reading InsideHook, you’re probably not going “back to school” … but you should take this time to grab deals on backpacks, messenger bags and the like. (You know, “school” stuff.) Timbuk2’s got a ton of ’em on sale right now, including this Transit Laptop Briefcase at just under $60.

Todd Snyder Dress Shirts
Time to restock the office closet for the fall season since you’ve probably sweated through your current roster of office garb. Currently going for over 50% off, and in quite a few different styles. If more casual button-ups are more your thing, there’s also a similarly discounted sale going on for those as well.

Sales of note:

  • Banana Republic: The Friends & Family Event ends tonight, which nets you 40% off regular-priced items. Use the code BRFRIEND.
  • Fitbit: Amazon’s taking up to $50 off an array of activity trackers.
  • Vince Sneakers: 50% off a wide variety of basic (in a good way) sneaker styles from Vince.
