Friends from the Floor: How to Prep Your Feet for Summer Sandals

“Friends from the Floor” is a series dedicated to sharing the latest product obsessions of our Nordstrom sales crew.

Peel off those socks, because it’s sandal season. Oh wait, did you forget something? It’s OK—it happens to the best of us.
