Labor Day is one of the best holidays. Not only does it give many workers a much-deserved three-day weekend, but it also marks the transition from summer to fall—and the seasonal wardrobe shift that goes along with it. The early days of September are the perfect time to start unearthing your softest black leggings, trendiest joggers, and most comfortable fall sneakers from the back of your closet. And if you're struggling to find any old fall favorites, you're in luck. Tons of Labor Day sales just kicked off today, giving you the opportunity to save big all weekend—especially when it comes to comfortable shoes. 

These sales not only offer discounted summer favorites, but they're also the first chance to score markdowns on autumn essentials, like supportive flats, loafers, and mules, before the weather changes. For example, Nordstrom's Summer Sale runs through September 12 with savings of up to 60% off both summer staples like sandals and fall basics like boots. Of course, the iconic retailer isn't the only one offering major deals this weekend; Vionic Shoes, Naturalizer, and Nike are just a few of the other brands selling comfy kicks for less.

But with so many sites offering steep discounts, it can be difficult to decide which deals are actually worth shopping. Rather than wasting your time scrolling through endless sale pages, check out our list of the 11 best Labor Day shoe deals, below.
