No matter what kind of shoe’s on your wishlist—a sleek slide, plush slipper, or goes-with-anything sneaker—your search is about to come to an end. Ahead of Nordstrom’s weeks-long Anniversary sale, there are plenty of footwear deals to peruse right now. Consider it a taste of even more exciting deals to come, when the sale officially begins later this summer.

If you’ve never shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, here’s what you need to know: Nordy Club card members get early access to deals in three tiers based on how much they spend at the retailer throughout the year. (Icon cardholders can start shopping on July 11; Ambassadors on July 12; and Influencers on July 13). 

Members can preview the sale as early as July 3, which is a great opportunity to bookmark deals and get that aforementioned wishlist in order before shopping officially begins. Finally, the event opens to the public on July 17 and runs through August 6.
