The best way to “kick” off your long-awaited Memorial Day weekend? By shopping some seriously good sneaker sales, of course. The celebratory Memorial Day sales have slowly but surely popped off in just about every category, but it’s really the sneakers we’ve been vying to get our

Many premium footwear brands have already gotten a “step” up on the sales (can’t stop, won’t stop), with a slew of styles already marked down ahead of this weekend’s festivities.
We’ve scoured the miles and miles of Memorial Day sneaker sales happening now, and these are the best ones. Happy Memorial Day, and even happier shopping!

What better way to kick off summer than with Chaco’s Summer Kickoff sale?

Step into summer with a pair of Ryka sneakers that are currently 40 percent off for the holiday.
