Presently available for $48 in all sizes of the Black/Black/Icey Blue colorway, this is a solid drop on the Adidas Kanadia 8.1 trail running shoes for women. These shoes retail for $80 and typically cost well over $50. If you’re an avid trail runner but don’t have a ton to spend, these shoes are a nice option.
The Adidas Kanadia 8.1 is our budget pick for women in our guide to the best trail running shoes. Bob Howells wrote, “This shoe costs well under $100 yet delivers most of the characteristics of expensive trail running models. The men’s and women’s Adidas Kanadia 8.1 shoes offer good traction, supportive uppers, and pleasant rides. Most entry-level and occasional trail runners should be able to overlook the shoe’s drawbacks, such as an extra-warm upper, given the attractive price.”
At $250, this is a solid price on our former top Thunderbolt 3 dock pick. The street price of this dock with this length of cable has been over $300, and while we anticipate that continuing to fall (a plus version of this dock with USB-C connectivity has been released) this is still a good option for those with MacBooks that require 85-watt charging. Cable length impacts pricing to a great degree, so you can save more by opting for a shorter cable, but this length provides placement flexibility that shorter cable lengths don’t.
The CalDigit TS3 (w/ 2-meter cable) is our former top pick in our guide to the best Thunderbolt 3 and 2 docks. Nick Guy wrote, “CalDigit’s TS3 is a great option—it’s a previous former top pick. It has three USB-A ports and an otherwise standard collection of inputs, and a small body. But it’s more expensive than our pick and has fewer ports. Choose this one mainly if 85-watt charging—say, for a 15-inch MacBook Pro—is important to you, otherwise, stick with the Plugable.”

At $160, this matches the lowest price we’ve seen for our runner-up portable SSD pick, the 512 GB WD My Passport SSD. Usually $180, this is a decent $20 savings off the usual price and $20 below the current price of our top pick, making this option worth a second look. This SSD has been at this discounted price on and off throughout the holidays, but has recently become available for order again. This SSD will be in stock on 1/26 and will ship then if ordered now.
The 512 GB Western Digital My Passport SSD is our runner-up pick in our guide to the best portable SSD. Justin Krajeski wrote, “In our tests, the My Passport SSD was 30 to 60 MB/s slower than the Samsung T5, but it was faster than the other external SSDs we tested, and it supports USB 3.1 Gen 2 speeds. The My Passport SSD is longer, thinner, and lighter than the Samsung. It has one USB-C port and comes with a USB-C to USB-C cable, as well as a tiny USB-C to USB-A adapter, which was simple to pop on and off, but seems easy to lose. Like the Samsung, it has AES 256-bit hardware encryption, intuitive software, and a three-year warranty.”
