With the LeBron 12 on the way, why not get one of the hottest colorways of the LeBron 11 to lace up this season.

Was: $220
Now: $150
Find It Here: Eastbay

adidas threw everything and the kitchen sink into the Predator Instinct FG, and it worked to perfection. Starting with the HYBRIDTOUCH synthetic leather upper, the boots are lightweight, but also allow for greater ball control and feel due to the Transparent Lethal Zones. At over $70 off original retail, adidas is almost begging to hit the field in these when the season starts.


No. 7 - Nike CJ Elite 2 TD

Was: $130
Now: $100
Find It Here: Eastbay

Football is in full swing, and we couldn't be happier. With the season underway, Nike dropped the price of the latest Calvin Johnson signature so you can hit the gridiron with both functionality and style. Exposed Flywire gives the cleats the lock down feel needed throughout a game, and the outsole is made with a new tread pattern to aid in quick cuts and allow you to stop on a dime.


No. 6 - adidas Crazy 1 "Infrared"

Was: $125
Now: $60
Find It Here: adidas

Although it might not be the most appealing colorway adidas has ever rolled out for the Crazy 1, the performance aspects are all there. adidas upgraded the mesh to make the shoes more breathable then the original construction, and extended the Torsion System to offer top energy return. If you can get over the blazing orange look, this may be a shoe for the avid player to lace up on occasion this fall.


No. 5 - Asics GEL-Cumulus 15 

Was: $115
Now: $60
Find It Here: Finish Line

Some shoes never go bad, and the Asics GEL-Cumulus 15 is the perfect example. At just 11.4oz, Asics bring a moderately lightweight runner to the table, but the standout feature is the GEL cushioning pods which aid in shock absorption from heel to toe. If the pods aren't enough cushioning for you, Asics added in Solyte midsole to further enhance the comfort and feel without sacrificing any performance features. At just $60, you'll be hard pressed to find another runner that delivers day after day for that price.


No. 4 - Nike TW 14

Was: $220
Now: $130
Find It Here: Foot Locker

Sure it's September, but that by no means golf season is over. At nearly 50% off, this TW 14 gives golfers the grip they need, and the ventilated upper offers breathability while keeping your foot dry during those rainy days on the course. Not to mention the TW 14 is also the first golf shoe to have a fully flexible Nike Free outsole.


No. 3 - adidas Rose 4.5

Was: $140
Now: $100
Find It Here: Foot Locker

adidas recently rolled out the DRose 5, powered by their newest feature, Boost cushioning. Don't sleep on the 4.5 though, as it's still an ideal shoe for the quick cutting guard weighing in at just 12.7oz. The updated Sprint Frame chassis gives the shoe the strength it needs without adding on that extra bulky weight, and expect these to drop in price even more when the latest model hits shelves.


No. 2 - Inov-8 Trailroc 235

Was: $130
Now: $100
Find It Here: Champs Sports

There is simply no better time for trail running then in the Fall months. If your looking to experience the great outdoors this season, the Inov-8 Trailroc 235 is the perfect shoe for both beginner and serious trail runners. At just 8.3oz, the shoe is ultra lightweight but provides the support and protection from the elements. The outsole consists of three different rubber which make up the aggressive lugs to help traverse even the most slick conditions.


No. 1 - Nike Flyknit Lunar2

Was: $150
Now: $75
Find It Here: Finish Line

The Flyknit Lunar2 builds off the success of the orginal by making the necessary tweaks runners were looking for. They Flyknit upper and Lunarlon midsole remain, but Nike added a little flare in the aestetic department making them a perfect crossover shoe for running and everyday casual wear. Sure, we're a bit biased on this colorway with the hometown Knicks feel, but performance wise the Flyknit Lunar2 delivers mile after mile.
