Last weekend I dipped in to Payless to see what the budget chain shoe store had to offer. I’ve been impressed with their selection as of late, especially the designer collaborations, but it’s always nice to see everything up close. How do they feel? What’s the material like? Is the heel sturdy? See what I found!

If you’re a girl who wants added height without teetering in a stiletto, then you definitely want to check out the massive selection of wedges. American Eagle had options in a range of colors and patterns, from the nautical inspired to gingham.

Spring is near and Payless is pulling out all stops with their designer collections from Christian Siriano, Lela Rose and Isabel Toledo. Whether your style is more glam or edged out, there’s something for every taste and the prices won’t break the bank. Siriano’s is ierce and glam. Rose’s is more ladylike and classic. Toledo’s is funky and fun.

Christian Siriano:

Exotic strappy sandal: $29.99. Caged strappy shootie: $54.99. Mena dress boot: $59.99.

The Project Runway winner’s collection features strappy sandals, caged booties with platform heels and boots with goldtone details. I wish the line featured bolder colors but I love what I see so far. The heel on the boots are too fierce!

Lela Rose:

Perlita Bow Quarter Strap Sandal: $29.99. Tweed Lafayette Pleated Pump: $29.99. Olivos satin t-strap pump: $44.99.

This is definitely the more subdued, ladylike collection with all of the neutral tones and feminine details. The heels are perfect with an LBD or skinny jeans.

Isabel Toledo:

Mesh lace shootie: $54.99. Bow dress shoe: $29.99. Pointed kitten: $44.99.

Fun and funky sum up Toledo’s offerings for Payless. From a lace up mesh bootie to a metallic peep-toe to a striped kitten heel, you’ll definitely turn heads in these.

And luckily the BOGO {buy one, get on 1/2 off} sale is underway.

Are you guys excited for the spring offerings from Payless? Would you pay up to $50 or $60 for shoes from Payless?
