Payless Shoes

Surprisingly, The Shoe Fits

If you can tell us where these shoes are from, we'll marry you. Yes, we'll marry you. Because these are high stakes and you deserve a substantial reward for such wisdom. You ready? They're from Payless. We know, we were as surprised as you. For twenty-four-ninety-nine (we'll spell it out, it's so little) you can snag the eggplant (also in black) oxfords from the comfort of your office desk. No need to let the less-fashion forward Payless offerings take away from the fact that this particular shoe is neither a rip-off nor for your average affordable option. Paired with a pair of cigarette trousers, we're pretty sure no one would know the difference. The question, in these circumstances, is what your reaction will be when people inevitably ask where you found such chic little oxfords. We're big fans of the contextual reaction. If it's your best friend, you'll take her arm and whisper the answer in her ear, and if it's an acquaintance at a cocktail party, you tell her something like 'Oh you know these things they're everywhere really'. In other words, double speak your way out of it sister, she'll figure it out in her own time.
