for friday faves today i decided to highlight some favorite men's shoes that are on CLEARANCE during the nordstrom clearance sale! plus two of our favorite men's dress shoes that are not on sale but worth the investment if you need a pair that will be a definite win.
if your man is anything like mine, he probably is okay with wearing the same pair of shoes for like a decade. kind of like his affliction shirts, that i finally had to ban. he's allowed to wear them for yard work or the gym. ha.
so i always like to get neil's shoes at nordstrom. first of all, they aren't going to sell anything hideously off-trend. so i'm not holding my breath walking in there hoping he doesn't pick something awful. it's like when all the choices are good to great to amazing, you're not going to go home with anything you secretly hope he never wears. also, nordstrom only sells the best quality stuff so i never worry about spending a bunch of money on something that will fall apart 2 weeks later. and lastly, the nordstrom CLEARANCE SALE – hello. let's pair affordable with the highest quality and you just put me in high-end deal heaven.
also, christmas time is always a good excuse to slip in some new shoes that i can swap out for old ones that he thinks are “just fine.” he always ends up liking them better anyway! ahhh it feels good to be right.
