Best deals of the week

The internet. Not everything it has brought to our lives has been beneficial. But it sure is great for finding deals. And we have some real hot ones for you this week.

First up, a pair of casual shoes that work for the gym, or as streetwear. Plus other deals to keep your booze cabinet full, one for gamers, and a couple to get your house in order.

Our team has hand-picked these offers. We’ve made sure each is a legit star buy, not the result of an inflated RRP. You can sling them in your basket with confidence.


Here are our picks of the week.

Play it for a quick blast of action, or dig deep to become an esports level pro. Either way, it’s a bargain for just £9.99.
