Nordstrom is a hotbed of pretty sneakers. But we're well aware that the term "pretty sneakers" is a bit subjective. (Among the criteria we used to classify them for this story were color, special details and embellishment, texture, and shape.) What isn't subjective is whether or not a particular sneaker has excellent reviews from Nordstrom shoppers. The sneakers in this roundup have both pretty qualities and positive reviews, and that's why we love them.
There are literally thousands of sneakers available on Nordstrom at any given time. Between the Reebok, Nike, Adidas, and Vans (and so many more), we didn't have any trouble finding plenty of beautiful ones, and people can't stop raving about the 12 that are listed below. It's a new year, which is the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a new pair of sneakers, so keep scrolling to shop the pretty ones that people are freaking out over on Nordstrom.
