Even if you don't fall into the camp of folks that love summer above everything else, it's still sad to bid the season farewell. There's just something special about those carefree, easy-breezy months of sun that make them harder to let go of than all the rest. But when that inevitable goodbye finally arrives, there is one very exciting phenomenon to keep everyone's spirits lifted: the rush of Labor Day Weekend sales. The special shopping event comes at just the right time, too, because it doesn't just help you ease away from summer with slightly less sadness — it gets your wardrobe in order for fall. And lest you forget that you'll soon need to stow those sandals in favor of sturdier footwear, Labor Day shoe sales are arriving to ensure your feet are prepared.
The sudden, upsetting realization that summer is swiftly coming to an end (how did that happen so fast?) is made much more bearable with the knowledge that boot season is nearly upon us. It's just about time to pull out your most beloved styles from the back of your closet, and invest in some new ones while you're at it. Of course, there's no better time to shop than during the upcoming Labor Day sales that'll help you save on the styles you know you'll need — boots, and otherwise.
You'll be able to score major savings on every trending silhouette for the season at fashion girl favorite retailers including Dear Frances, which is hosting a sale from Aug. 29 through Sept. 3, and M. Gemi, which offers discounts from Aug. 28 through Sept. 2., among others. Snag in-demand styles, like loafers you can wear with everything and sleek sneakers to elevate casual ensembles, during the sales to support your fall shoe closet.
Bandier's Labor Day sale means you can update your athletic shoe collection for less — get your hands on a pair of sneakers before all the discounted ones are gone — and The Outnet's major end of summer sale means total savings of up to 85 percent off designer styles like Brother Vellies boots that are ready for cool fall nights. Even Barneys New York is offering a chance to score, with an additional 50 percent off sale shoes on site (no code necessary). Basically, now is your best bet for snagging every shoe you can imagine needing this season.
