Sale season isn't a sprint, it's a marathon. Sure, you could put your credit card through a bender at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. But then you'd be left pining for seriously discounted finds at your other favorites, staring at a drained bank account, and cursing the seductive powers of a crossed-out price tag.
Instead, take it a step at a time by upgrading your staples. And what do we need more than anything in this excruciating July heat? Toe-baring, breathable sandals to make our feet look and feel happy. And the offerings don't disappoint: We picked 22 of the sweetest pairs on sale right now for your bargain-hunting perusal. Proceed at your own risk.
