The Internet’s Best Bargain Shoe Shop Is Hiding in Plain Sight
By Eli London / December 12, 2018 9:00 am

Reader, please brace yourself for a revealing and potentially uncomfortable truth.

The best shoe deals on the entire interweb can be found at … Nordstrom Rack. (Pause for gasps.) You might not like it. But damn it, if you’re a savvy shopper, you’re going to accept it. And one day, learn to love it.

We’re not just talking great deals on poorly-made, bargain-brand shoes. We’re talking heavy discounts on hundreds of distinctive, well-known and well-made brands, the likes of which include Frye, John Varvatos, Adidas, To Boot New York and more.

Is it the most seamless experience? No; I will concede that shopping at Nordstrom Rack is more like thrifting than it is shopping in an expertly curated boutique. There are literally thousands of products that you have to comb through to find the diamonds in the rough. But there are many, and in this case the diamonds are heavily discounted and, well, shoes.

Many of the best shoes in my collection came from The Rack (you’ll start calling it that, too, once you’re a full convert), sometimes for as little as one-third of the full retail price. So to extend that courtesy on to you, we’ve curated 15 of our favorite sneakers, dress shoes and boots available right now, all at a hefty bargain. See them below.
