Reviewing the New Payless

If you have been following along here for awhile, you know that I was a big fan of Payless shoes. (Last count, I own 47 pairs.) So it was no surprise that I was sad when they went out of business last year.

But, earlier this year, Payless announced that they were back in business and during the summer, they launched a new website

I was curious about the new Payless and wondered how it compared to the old. So I perused their website frequently, but did not find anything I needed until last week, when I saw a pair of heels that I just had to have – royal blue patent pumps

I ordered my size and the $29.99 shoe only cost $20.99 with their 12 days of Christmas discount. Shipping was free and I received my order three days later via UPS.

When my ordered arrived, I opened the package as quick as a Playboy bunny and noted the quality of my purchase. Belying their price, the shoes were not cheap – they are a good quality shoe, as good if not better than the old Payless products.

The proof is in the footing, so I slipped on a pair of knee highs, slipped on my new shoes and tried them on for about four hours. They were very comfortable throughout the tryout and I had no problem maneuvering in their three-inch heel. 

Overall, I am very pleased with my first purchase from the new Payless.

Their website needs a little work, though. They show the colors of the shoes you can purchase, but don't name the colors. Just showing pictures of the available colors does not suffice; they need to add the names of the colors, too.

Also, I believe there is an error in the description of their Fioni pumps. No way do they have 2-inch kitten heels. They look more like 4-inch stiletto heels.

  1. the kitten heels probably measured up to a Maine Coon

  2. Stana,

    Like you, I ordered from Payless when I saw a pair of ankle boots I really liked. The description indicated the heel height was 4 inches, but the image didn't match the touted measurement, so I purchased them based on the image. Clearly, the heel height was incorrect; they were more like three inches. The boots are adorable, they fit perfectly and they are extremely comfortable. I am so happy Payless is back and look forward to new styles.

  3. I just LOVE the double-breasted suit-dress from Rotate!

  4. I was thinking the same thing about the Fioni heel height. I would love to add that nude pair to my collection, but only if they're 4" and not 2".

    And I just need to say: that femulator is one in a million:) Oh those lovely long legs!

    Ciao! Elise
