We’re pleasantly surprised by the sheer number of Black Friday shoe deals already available to shop right now. We’re seeing a good amount of deals more than 30% off from Zappos, Amazon, Nordstrom, and Nike—but sizes are going quickly, as one would expect.
As far as other fitness deals go, we spotted a bunch of ’em on AirPods and fitness equipment like the Hydrow rower and the Lululemon Studio Mirror. Plus you’ll find men’s and women’s clothing and activewear marked down from Nike, Lululemon, Nordstrom, and more.

Amazon has been rolling out early Black Friday deals for weeks already, and, thankfully, they’re only getting better the closer we get to the actual shopping extravaganza. As far as sneaker markdowns go, the megaretailer’s deals are not to be missed. Amazon’s Black Friday deals have markdowns on big names in running and walking shoes like Saucony, Under Armour, Reebok, and Fila.

Nike knows a thing or two about sales. Right now, save up to 40% on early Black Friday deals spanning sweatshirts, backpacks, activewear, and, of course, workout sneakers. You’ll find running shoes like the Pegasus 39, casual sneaks like the Air Max, and training shoes like the Metcon 4. The Waffle One are excellent Nike shoes for walking. Some clearance items are even more marked down, but sizes are going out of stock pretty quickly, so act fast.
Like Amazon, Nordstrom has been rolling out the Black Friday deals early this year—but we’re not complaining. Nordstrom’s Black Friday sale officially starts November 18, but the department store has thousands of deals ready for the taking, including plenty of sneaks to choose from. We spotted top-rated gym and running shoes from Nike and Adidas, plus a budget-friendly find from Nordstrom’s own beloved active brand Zella.

The outdoor retailer’s deals keep coming through November 21.
Mega shoe retailer Zappos hasn’t announced the details of its Black Friday sneaker sales yet, but it does have a seriously worthwhile clearance section that’s always being refreshed with new on-sale styles from Asics, Adidas, Brooks, and APL.
