Derek mentioned Markkt recently on the blog. They’re a UK-based sample sale site with a very cool collection of brands. At the moment, they’re offering both one of my favorite brands in the world, Nigel Cabourn, and Common Projects, the ultra-premium sneaker brand. CPs are very, very expensive (and rarely on sale), but if you’ve got the dough, they’re pretty much the perfect sneaker. I bought a pair last year at a very high price, but I’m happy I did. And I’m a real miser. Markkt is running them at £170, which is about $250, around a 35% significant discount from their sticker price.
