Here's a shocker to no one: I'm a frequent Nordstrom shopper. During my weekly—often daily—visits to the retailer's site to shop for products I want to feature in my stories (or even treat myself to for a little wardrobe update), I've become well-acquainted with their shoe section. So well-acquainted, I might add, that I tend to notice when the stock starts to dwindle on certain pairs or when they sell out entirely. I decided to put all my knowledge of these popular and trendy shoes at Nordstrom to work in this roundup. To no surprise, they all happened to be the ones that come highly rated by Nordstrom shoppers, proving that they really are quite versatile and—above all—affordable.
You might even recognize a few of the slides, sandals, and sneakers you see here since I also have intel that many WWW readers have bought them, too. The order histories and amazing reviews don't lie. These 22 pairs are the real deal. But don't just take my word for it—scroll through the list to discover them all and then click in to read the reviews. You might just find yourself so inclined to place an order, too. Happy scrolling (and shopping)!
