not all expensive shoes are comfy either though :p
but thats probably more due to my continued fascination with pointy high stilettos.

just saw an ad for the abaete for payless in the ny times sunday mag and they actually look kind of cute. i'll have to see how they look in person though...

i went to payless yesterday and the store already is selling the abaete shoes. tried on the ballet flats - they were rather stiff and uncomfortable.
they also had the shoes featured in the article , except they were solid color, no polka dots but i didn't try those on - the white pair looked ok, the black was better looking though.

i passed by a payless store and they have some of the shoes in the window.

they also have a buy one get one 50% off deal going on. if you need ten dollar shoes i guess its OK.

the ballet shoes looked horrendous. so did the boots.

I agree with the fact that the flats were horrendous, but they do have one or two nice shoes once in a while.

Exactly... I have a single mother and a little sister, and there is no way that I'll be wearing Louboutins in the next few years (unless my modeling career really kicks off). I spent, like, fifty bucks on my entire homecoming dance outfit last year- which included shoes from payless. I have no intention to ask my mom to spend money she doesn't have on cute Jimmy Choos.

Fashion is fashion and style is style... I had a friend who went to the same dance in Kate Spade shoes and a Max Azria dress and everyone commented on how good I looked over her in my cheapo getup

My local payless has a pair of pumps from this collection, but I'm waiting to see how the boots look in real life.

I know, seriously! I get plenty of my compliments on my cheap Payless shoes, certainly more than my friend who pays tons of money on EVERYTHING.

Payless shoes aren't that bad. I had a pair of sandals that wore out pretty quickly (mostly because I wore them nearly everyday for almost a year), but I also have good heels too. I think that some of the new Abaete shoes are cute, esp. the boots, but some of their other, non-designer shoes are much better.

Actually, I have a pair of ballet flats that are the most uncomfortable pair I own. I can only wear it if my heal goes over the end like a slipper, because otherwise my toes and joints will cut and blister. Usually used when I have to make quickie errands or do laundry. My mom wanted a "matching pair of flats, 'cause, oh my god we're so cute!"

So true! I had a pair of purple flats from Payless, and they've actually left scars on the back of my ankles after wearing them maybe twice. I have another that were OK, but I only wore them when I had no other options.

I work @ the mall and when I passed the Payless, the shoes below were in the window & it seems like I've seen them before...or some that were very similiar. I just couldn't quite put my finger on it, does anyone know what their knocking off? I actually thought they were pretty cute to, esp at only $17.99!

The mary janes look kind of like a knock off of the Manolo's.

Payless has stepped up it's game a lot lately, but a lot of the pics of shoes on this thread are kinda ugly.
