Summer’s peak means three things: 1) more sun, 2) more fun, and 3) a Nordstrom Anniverary sale of epic proportions, often packed with the hottest discounted kicks on the market. Don’t believe us? Bracket your skepticism for a moment, because we’re talking up to 60% off on a heap of dazzling sneakers, trail-ready sandals, and ready-for-anything loafers, not to mention a ton of swanky dress shoes (summer weddings are in full gear, after all).
Of course, the notorious Nordstrom sale isn’t just made of eye-popping shoe deals. It’s also plenty of deals to be enjoyed across the menswear, home, and grooming arenas, but it would be a real miss to walk away from the retailer’s signature blowout without at least one new pair of kicks. We’re not sure how much we believe in signs from the fashion gods, but when heavyweights like Adidas, Clarks, and Nike (an actual goddess!) start calling our name, we heed them—and you would be wise to do the same. These are 26 of our favorite kicks from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, each a gift from the heavens in their own right.
