Every store stocks an average of 25,000 pairs of shoes, a foot-feast featuring hundreds of designer brands.

Nordstrom Rack's extensive collection of designer jeans keep wayward legs from impersonating arms, and with a bevy of items for women, men, juniors, and children, Nordstrom Rack's expansive stock is sure to please the palate of any hanger-hungry wardrobe.
