Let's have a closer look at these stellar Amazon deals, shall we?

Crocs

Crocs Classic Clogs

$50
$50 at Amazon

If you're a creature of comfort, this is the shoe for you. Beloved by chefs, medical workers and kids alike, Crocs are lightweight, easy to clean, quick-drying and water-friendly, too.

Crocs are, quite simply, the epitome of foot-pampering footwear. First of all, these unisex shoes are lightweight and breathable; in fact, they’re even perforated for air circulation. But it’s their soft, rubber construction and arch-supporting, shock-absorbing sole that make them truly superior.

“BABYYYYY My feet are in heaven,” exclaimed a five-star fan. “I have issues with my arches and typically wear arch supports in my shoes so that I can both walk better and so my feet don't hurt. “The support I felt, the cushion I felt, the [prickly] things in the shoe that massage my feet... it all was surreal."

Venture Pal

Venture Pal 64 Oz. Motivational Water Bottle

$23
$23 at Amazon

This water bottle has a flip-top lid with a secure lock to prevent leaks, a built-in straw and a wrist strap to make it easy to tote around.

There's a lot to love about this 64-ounce water bottle, but the big draw is its fun motivational sayings that encourage you to keep gulping down the H2O. You'll be encouraged by phrases like "REMEMBER YOUR GOAL" and "DON'T GIVE UP" that correspond to where you're at in your workout and where you should be at in your imbibing.

"This is a huge bottle, and I had my reservations too," reported a five-star fan. "I have been long known to have a very small bladder, so I purposefully kept myself dehydrated most of the time unless I knew there was a close-by bathroom. After a few months of utilizing this religiously every day (With some days that I didn't reach the goal) I can tell you I have NEVER felt this good. I would get so overwhelmed with other bottles, [but] this one gives small increments through your day to keep you hydrated all day long. I have MORE energy, MORE memory retention, MORE drive! JUST WOW. I'm healing my overactive bladder too! Bonus!!"

OCOOPA

Ocoopa Sandproof Beach Blanket

$33$43Save $10
$33 at Amazon

This sand-proof beach blanket is made with parachute nylon and comes with stakes to keep it in place and and a travel bag for easy toting. It's also extra large and can fit up to eight people.

There aren't a lot of bad things you can say about the beach, but if you must gripe about something, it's the sand that seems to get everywhere. To make sure you don't bring any back with you (or at least minimize the hassle), a sand-proof beach blanket built for eight is a pretty good insurance policy.

"I spontaneously ordered the large size for a beach trip with grandkids," reported a pleased grandparent. "This blanket was so lightweight, easy to lay out with the spikes to hold in place. It stayed in place, dry (even through some light rain). The sand shook off easily and folding was a breeze. Love it."

Kootek

Kootek Camping Hammock

$23$30Save $7
$23 at Amazon

Made for comfort in the outdoors, this sturdy hammock is made with parachute fabric, which makes it easy to pack and store whether you're in the backyard or on top of a mountain. It's also easy to clean and dries quickly.

This hammock is an instant bed anywhere a tree grows! Easy outdoor sleeping comes with an easy-on-the-wallet price. It's made with the same material parachutes are made with, so you know it's built to last.

"I bought this for my partner for Father's Day," wrote a satisfied customer. "He absolutely loves it. We had just a plain cotton and rope hammock and this is 1,000x more comfortable and fits him and both of our children. It doesn't make terrifying ripping noises when they move around and the straps are very heavy-duty! We've always had to order separate straps because the ones that come with the product usually aren't that great, but these are hands-down the best straps that we own now."

Clarks

Clarks Women's Breeze Sea Flip-Flop

$33$55Save $22
$33 at Amazon

Ride out the rest of summer in comfort with these bestselling sandals.

Clarks is known for its super comfortable shoes, and its Breeze Sea Flip-Flops are no exception. These cute sandals feature an Ortholite footbed for extra cushioning and EVA outsole for sturdiness. They're also lightweight, making them comfy enough to wear all day. A slight heel gives you a little added height.

"I love this footbed!" said a five-star reviewer. "In July, I sprained my foot so badly, two doctors wanted to X-ray it to make sure it wasn't broken. I had purchased a pair of Clarks flip flops at a shoe store and I tried many shoes on my injured foot; but the only shoe I could wear without pain was the Clarks. I like it so much that I purchased four more colors of the Clarks flip flops."

Amazon

Stanley Big Grip Beer Stein

$18$25Save $7
$18 at Amazon

Hot beverage or cold, this durable mug will keep your drink the temperature you like from first sip to last, thanks to double-walled insulation.

This go-anywhere beer stein from legendary thermos maker Stanley is a sweet 28% off. Big enough for two cans of beer, it will keep brew cold for up to five hours. Made with classic Stanley durability, this mug can handle any "adventure" dad goes on, whether he's barbecuing in the backyard or sitting around the campfire.

"My husband loves these mugs," wrote a rave reviewer. "And I'll admit somehow water does taste better and colder in them, although we own plenty of other double-walled mugs. We've given them out as gifts to many of our friends now and despite having a cabinet full of Hydroflasks and other mugs, we always grab these first. Great purchase, and awesome for camping trips!"

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
