A shoe for every style and need
Shopping for truly comfortable shoes that are also style-forward can be a daunting task. Which is why personal stylist Laurie Brucker Amerikaner directs her clients to Nordstrom for their variety of designs, price points, and sizes. “The Nordstrom shoes department is always first on my list to visit. I come back to the store consistently because there are always sandals and sneakers that suit all the different style needs of my clients. The price range gives my clients an opportunity to snag their higher-priced timeless shoes, while also buying their fast fashion fixes too. Plus the customer service and return policy can’t be beaten.”
As luck would have it, the most popular Nordstrom sandals and shoes right now are summer-forward flip-flops, casual flats you can wear with leggings and loungewear sets, and trendy sneakers with detailed elements.
“The current shoe trends are perfect for everyday wear,” says Laurie. “It’s all about fashion meets comfort. Think lower heels, stacked heels, flatforms, and espadrilles—a summer classic. Go with colors that match everything like white, skin tone colors, and matte pastels. Square toe styles are still standing strong as the comeback trend we never thought would return, as well as padded sandals from the ’90s. One of the more updated shoe trends is the wide-band braided or woven leather strap. This has just enough design detail to look fresh while staying in a classic timeless shape.”
No matter what your style, heel height, or budget preferences might be, there are stylist-approved Nordstrom shoes perfect for you.
Veja Espalar Sneaker
This unisex sneaker is one of the easiest Nordstrom shoes to wear each day thanks to the versatility of its design, broad size range, and classic white styling. They’re court-inspired and offer meaningful social impact thanks to Veja’s support for organic cotton farming families in Brazil. These sneakers have the kind of cushioned sole support that makes them some of the best walking shoes for women and men alike.
Zodiac Dani Platform Sandals
This trendy platform sandal pick hits all the right trend notes Laurie mentioned, including soft neutral tones, a medium-low flatform heel, and a comfortable elastic strap. The padded, supportive sandal is lifted by a lightweight and flexible platform with a herringbone texture at the toe. Each of the four available color options is universally flattering and easily paired with everything from denim to business casual looks. They’re also one of the most affordable Nordstrom sandals on this list, making them an easy choice for most budgets.
Bernardo Reese Slide Sandal
These summer slide sandals offer easy wearing and the feel of your favorite slippers. Just swap out outdoor traction, embroidery detail, and the clear desire to be paired with your favorite swimsuits for long days at the pool. The bold embroidered upper design brings a luxe feel to the supportive, contoured footbed and mild arch support that leaves the average pair of slides in the dust. They come in two neutral color palette offerings and are available in a variety of medium-width sizes.
Saucony Endorphin Speed Running Shoe
If you’re in need of running shoes with style, these Saucony sneakers won’t disappoint. Their trendy black, white, and tan colors along with the extra heel cushioning have made them a favorite for fashion sneaker buyers too. The sole offers a fusion of cushioning and propulsive technologies to improve running performance. But don’t worry—life is enough of a marathon, and we won’t blame you for pairing them with jeans and a tee for leisure time.
Birkenstock Arizona Birko-Flor Sandal
This perennial favorite double-strapped sandal offers a soft, leather-like fabric upper. And the same contoured, supportive footbed that earned Birkenstocks thousands of five-star Zappos ratings. These bright white sandals are an updated modern take on the classic Arizona style thanks to added traction and shock-absorbing soles. Don’t worry—the buckles are still adjustable.
Bogs Sweetpea Waterproof Slip-On Sneaker
These waterproof wonders are the hybrid of a slip-on sneaker and a rain boot that you probably never saw coming but definitely need in your wardrobe. The Bogs Sweetpeas are perfect for everything from running errands on wet days to gardening in the backyard thanks to durable rubber forms and moisture-wicking properties for dry, all-day comfort. They’re available in women’s sizes six through 12, making them a good choice for those looking for an extended size range.
Naot Wand Wedge Sandal
This go-everywhere sandal has a cork and memory foam footbed that adds lightweight comfort and a little spring to every step. Even though it’s technically a heel, the half-inch platform feels and wears like a flat, and even boasts built-in arch support. The adjustable hook-and-loop strap actually makes shoes last longer thanks to precision sizing and wearing, and comes with five different colored leather finishes. There’s something for everyone, and this shoe even has the American Podiatric Medical Association Seal of Acceptance.
Ecco Soft 7 Slip-On Sneaker
Woven leather textures are one of this year’s biggest accessory trends, and these Ecco slip-on shoes are ripe with a woven vamp and cushioned footbed you’ll love wearing through every season. It’s a stylish, walking-friendly wardrobe addition that pairs well with just about anything in the stone metallic leather shade. Or add a touch of casual flair to office attire in the black leather colorway. It also comes in a gray tone and a silver-hued metallic finish for those who like extra options.
Nina Ganice Mesh Strap Sandal
All dressed up with somewhere to go for a change? Then you’ll definitely want to slip into these Nina Ganice sandals. Twin, trendy wide-band straps inset with sheer mesh provide breezy style and day-to-night wearing that can’t be beaten. The modest wrapped block heel pairs well with little black dresses, colorful frocks, and even understated pantsuits without risking blisters or prolonged discomfort. The Ganice style is available in sizes five through 11. Here’s what your favorite shoes say about your personality, if you’re wondering.
Rockport Total Motion Alaina Slide Sandal
Another modest heel that’s actually comfortable on this list? You betcha, and the Rockports deliver a dose of casual sass thanks to an oversized buckle with wood-grain inlays. It screams vintage Italian designer shoe charm (you know the brand with the interlocking G logo), with a chic cross-strap finish. All that detailing aside, they’re made with Rockport’s famous truTech cushioning for easy all-day wearing, standing, walking, and living. This timeless shoe is available in a creamy beige color or deeper, always-great tan color. It’s offered in both medium and wide widths.
Under Armour HOVR Sonic 4 Connected Running Shoe
This running shoe is quickly becoming a warm-weather favorite sneaker for Nordstrom shoppers. Responsive cushioning, extremely lightweight foam construction, and easy squish-almost-flat packing makes them a favorite for tourists and vacationers. The sneakers come in a variety of exciting bold and neutral colors and even pair with the brand’s free MapMyRun app to help track and improve running performance. While they’re made for running, they’re definitely great for casual strolls as well.
Havaianas Slim Glitter Flip Flops
You’ll love this slightly more glamorous, updated version of everyone’s favorite slim Havaianas flip-flops. They’re an affordable style staple you’ll look to all summer long, and make a fun, feminine statement with the rose gold or golden glitter straps. Throw them in your beach bag with your favorite swimsuit cover-ups, face sunscreens, and summer hats and you’ll be ready to go through Labor Day.
Ugg Sammy Slip-On Sneaker
Stretchy, knit uppers and a skater silhouette make this ultra-comfortable slip-on sneaker an easy choice and one of Nordstrom’s best-selling casual shoes for women. It’s available in several updated colors ranging from classic to current, can be machine-washed, and offers easy, thought-free standing, walking, and warm weather enjoyment.
