Okay, shoe fiends, get ready to have your ecommerce minds blown. In a stroke of fashion genius, Amazon.com has launched its first-ever pre-fall sale, going on now through September 15. Here's how it works: Before any fall shoes even hit store shelves, get first dibs by pre-ordering your favorite styles. There are more than 40 styles and 87 colors on offer from brands including Jessica Simpson, House of Harlow, Guess, Dolce Vita, and Steve Madden. Your pre-ordered shoes will start shipping on August 15. Bonus: customers who place pre-orders will be eligible for 20% off their next Amazon order. [Racked Inbox]
