Alice + Olivia For Payless

I had no idea that Alice + Olivia was collaborating with Payless Shoes. Payless is known for low priced and low quality footwear. My relationship with them has been hit or miss. I have a couple of pairs that kill my toes because the straps are made of plastic, not patent leather, and I don't get very much wear out of them. On the other hand, two of my favourite pairs of flat leather sandals came from Payless, and they are extremely comfy. These pink satin shoes are so much fun! I hope the bottom of the straps are leather. Usually Payless doesn't do heels above three inches, so the four inch heel is a good surprise. If I run into these I'll definitely be trying them on. I hope they're comfy.

Payless can be really low quality, but there are some diamonds in the rough. My favorite pair of flats is from there, but they've needed a bit of super-glue to keep the sole flat. I like this collaboration.

I have not found anything there in a long time. In fact every time I go in there it seems like the prices are increasing and the quality and style is decreasing..eek! I hope this designer gives them the boost they need :)

I had a pair of snakeskin leather flats from payless that I practically lived in last year... And a pair of flat suede boots too. But I haven't found anything decent in there lately... I wish Australian stores would carry this line, those shoes are cute!
