This past week I learned that the Nordstrom store was founded by John Nordstrom in 1901. Why does that matter? Because Nordstrom got its start in downtown Seattle as a start-up shoe company. To pay homage to Mr. Nordstrom while visiting Seattle, I thought to honor the store's footwear roots.
Being a starving artist/entrepreneur, as well as a big fan of all footwear, it can be tough to afford quality shoes on a tight budget. Nordstrom has great products, but can come with a steep price tag. The solution: Nordstrom Rack, the outlet store of this higher-end lifestyle department store.
Pictured below are just a few of the hidden treasures I discovered after searching up and down the shoe racks. There's a certain high when you discover a gem. Sometimes, the hunt is better than the shoes themselves. You never know what you'll find or what will inspire you. So, go explore!
