Heels for Work In the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

There are so many awesome heels and pumps in the NAS this year — I’m drooling over a ton of them.

Pictured below (top row, currently $79-$119, will be $118-$180):

ankle strap (4 colors) / envelope pump (3 colors) / beige suede ankle strap (6 colors) / criscross pump / crisscross wedge (4 colors)

Pictured above (bottom row, currently $164-$259, will be $258-$395 after sale ends):

tan pump*/ ankle strap (3 colors) — have heard SO many great things about this brand! / crisscross pump / navy belted block heel / black dot pump

Fantastic Flats in the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Pictured below, the flats are $49-$219, but will be $70-$330 after the sale ends:

teal flat with strap (4 colors) /  scalloped ballet flat (6 colors, see also) / patent oxford (2 colors) / cap toe ballet (2 colors)/ grommet detail flat (4 colors)

Office-Appropriate Booties

Booties have come a long way, and I’m seeing new “stepped topline” details like in several ones here. Know your office (and personal style best), but in my opinion the best booties for the office have a dark heel that doesn’t look very wood grainy, which automatically takes a lot of the lighter colored options.

The booties pictured below are currently $99-$349, but they’ll be $160 – $525 after the sale ends.

Waterproof Shoes

So many cute waterproof shoes — these can be great for a commute, particularly if you live in a place with puddles, slush and more! (Including the black dotted pumps at top and the second black bootie pictured above!) There are also some great basic Hunters and other snow boots in the sale if you want something more rugged/functional for your commute.

The shoes pictured above are $99-$299, but will be $149-$450 after the sale ends)…

Cute Comfort Booties in the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

If you’re someone who really wants to (or needs to) pay for brands that market themselves as comfortable, there are actually a ton of cute comfort booties in the sale this year. The boots pictured below are all $139-$159 right now, but will be $219-$245 after the sale ends:

tall bootie / quilted bootie / bootie with ruched detail / block heel bootie

  1. is it just me or is that graphic a veritable parade of frump?!

    • Agree. I like one or two of the booties, but all of the heels and flats look dated to me.

      • Kat, these are great, but I perfer the 4″ pumps from Ivanka! She is much taller then me to start with, and with 4″ pump’s, she is as tall as Jared. Why can’t I find a guy like that to MARRY me? FOOEY!
