Payless ads in Vouge are a bit out of place, but so are Baby Phat ones- but Vouge needs to pay the bills, no?

Payless is a great shoe source for people who are more quantity than quality... I like to change my look up often, and my family can't afford for me to have 35 pairs of Monols, Jimmys, and Christians, so a few of my own shoes come from Payless.

And I look damn good in 'em, too

Princesse-you said exactly what I was thinking. Personally, I find it insulting the way people trash Payless. Not everyone has the budget for shoes that cost as much as a month's rent. I have gotten so many compliments on my numerous pairs of Payless shoes and will continue to purchase them. There are many $400+ shoes out there that are god awful and uncomfortable as well. Price does not always equal quality or practicality.

I totally agree with you
Baby Phat and Kimora Lee are just plain ugly and digusting.

I usually get my shoes from DSW but from time to time if you can't afford it but you need shoes on a budget, I say Payless is ok. I agree about the lack of comfort, so I always try to get my shoes wide width and I'm a 5 and a half-6. I have maybe 3 pairs from there and of all my shoes I get complimented the most on my purple/pink pumps I bought from them almost 2 years ago, which are so comfy and stylish at the same time. I'm loving some of their boots though. And a New York Newspaper rated the top 10 boots of the season and ones of theirs came in 3rd.
