A Shoe Guide: For All of the Men Out There

Since I’m currently the Men’s Shoes Assistant Manager at the Tyson’s Corner Nordstrom AND the rockin’ Anniversary sale is underway at my store, I figured that I owe it to ALL of you classy men out there to give you a little peek into my favorite styles on sale right now. In my opinion, one can learn a lot about a man solely by his shoes (pun intended). For example, they can reveal his attention to detail, knowledge of fashion, career path, care (or lack thereof) for appearance, and even his maturity level. Now, there is no need to develop a Carrie Bradshaw-esque collection of shoes; however, investing in some sensible and appropriate pairs can definitely keep your shoe game in check for the next few years. Therefore gents, I suggest that you take a look at my favorite pairs and stop by your local Nordstrom to get your shoe shopping for EVERY occasion done in a single trip! Ready, set, GO!
