Held every July, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the retailer’s biggest shopping event of the year, providing their biggest discounts ahead of back-to-school season.

While the sale kicked off for Nordstrom cardmember holders on July 9, beginning July 15 the sale is open to everyone, regardless of card status. There are markdowns across the entire Nordstrom website and in stores, from clothing to beauty items and lots of shoes.

The sale will end on Aug. 1 both online and in-store, with Anniversary Sale prices going back to full price. Desirable items, and especially their most common sizes, are sure to sell out faster, or even before the sale opens up to the public.

That’s why creating a shopping strategy is essential to nabbing the best Nordstrom Anniversary shoe deals before they’re gone.

What type of shoe deals can I find during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022?

The right sale strategy means first identifying the gaps in your wardrobe.

When it comes to fitness, now is the ideal time to replace walking shoes, running shoes, trail shoes, and workout shoes for the gym, without breaking the bank.

With summer in full swing, now you can grab the cute summer sandals you’ve been missing, or the best men’s sandals and slides.

To take full advantage of savings, don’t just think of the shoes you need now, however. With fall approaching, consider the combat boots, ankle boots, or rain boots that will get you through the season ahead.

Old dress shoes or threadbare flats for women that are due for an upgrade can also be nabbed for great prices, so consider your office footwear as well.

The smartest shoppers will also consider gifting for loved ones come the holiday season. Shopping now will prevent November and December headaches, plus you can buy so much more for loved ones when you’re buying at a discount. Slippers are a safe bet for stocking stuffers.

Check out our list of the best shoes and sneakers to shop during Nordstrom Anniversary sale.
