Weird seeing Nordstrom men's shoes selling Margiela, Givenchy, and CPs mixed in with Ecco and Cole Haan. Quite a few Margiela sneaks, marked down 30%. Some young kid with his girl friend dropped $750 on an ugly pair of men's Jimmy Choo highs. The Nordstrom SA was almost giggling with excitement to check them out.
Also weird: On the clothing sale rack, seeing Junya, Lanvin, and Neil Barret in full size runs marked down 50%. Nordstrom is gunning for a piece of that Barneys' business, but it feels like totally different clientele, even holding income constant.
Givenchy shoes are better suited to Foot Locker. And I love Margiela sneakers, but the uninspiring design wouldnt be out of place at Nordstrom.
