Nordstrom Shoe Clearance: 5 Best Bets for Work

Monday, September 02, 2013 • Permalink • 

I’ve been scouring the massive Nordstrom Shoe Clearance to find the best deals for all occasions, starting with work.

Granted, I’m taking a fairly narrow view of “work” here – basically your standard office environment, ranging from ultra to moderate on the conservative scale. Your work may fall well outside that description, as does my current office. But, I know from experience that this is precisely the work shoe options that are hardest to find on sale.

Check out my best bets…

Get your Princess Kate on in these classic round-toe pumps from one of her favorite labels – L.K. Bennett. These basic black leather pumps have a moderate heel and a timeless look that will serve you well for years to come. These are my top pick work shoes of the entire sale.

L.K. Bennett Sybila Pump in Black Leather


→ Buy the L.K. Bennett Sybila Pump in Black Leather, $194.98 (was $325.00), at nordstrom.com; shipping and returns are free.


If your office allows for a slightly more relaxed approach to shoes, don’t miss these open-toe snake-embossed leather pumps from Cole Haan. The grey, black, white, beige snakeskin print will match practically everything in your closet.

Cole Haan Chelsea Pump


→ Buy the Cole Haan Chelsea Pump, $219.76 (was $328.00), at nordstrom.com; shipping and returns are free.


One of the toughest work shoe finds is the ever-elusive perfect navy pump. Granted, this version is patent leather, but I don’t think that diminishes its value as an office-appropriate shoe. The more conservative silhouette nicely balances the patent exterior. Wear it with chocolate brown trousers for an office look that pops.

L.K. Bennett Sybila Navy Patent Pump


→ Buy the L.K. Bennett Sybila Navy Patent Pump, $194.98 (was $325.00), at nordstrom.com; shipping and returns are free.


This simple caramel colored pump from Corso Como is nearly sold out, but it deserves a call out as one of the few non-patent brown pumps on sale.

Corso Como Craven Pump


→ Buy the Corso Como Craven Pump, $49.97 (was $128.95), at nordstrom.com; shipping and returns are free.


This black leather kitten heel pump will be a go-to shoe in your work wardrobe. The ultra-walkable lower heel is perfect for wearing with both skirts and shorter-hemmed trousers. The super pointy shape will keep your leg line long, making up for the lower heel height.

Ivanka Trump Indico Pump


→ Buy the Ivanka Trump Indico Pump, $99.90 (was $119.95), at nordstrom.com; shipping and returns are free.
