Silvia Tcherassi for Payless, Genova Sandal ($69.99)

Think wedges, flats, strappy heels and thongs sandals with key trend details like bright color-blocking, unique mesh uppers and satin ribbon details and ties.

Tcherassi now joins a team of talented fashion designers including Christian Siriano with Christian Siriano for Payless, Lela Rose with Lela Rose for Payless and Unforgettable Moments by Lela Rose, and Isabel Toledo with Isabel Toledo for Payless.

As much as I love seeing amazing fly styles at Payless, a store I often overlooked in the past, the prices are a little ridic - don't you think?

I love those shoes! I just found your blog and I really like it! I also love to look fab without spending a fortune!

I agree that the prices are a little ridiculous - I know these are technically "designer shoes" but people go to payless for shoes they can afford! I can't be dropping $40-70 on one pair of shoes! But, I did just get 3 super cute wedges/sandals from Payless for just over $40! How's that for a budget babe? :-)

I think they're cute, but I agree... People going to Payless aren't going to pay $40 for a pair of shoes, let alone $70. They may pay $40 for a few pairs, but not for one!

I don't think $70 is a bad price to pay if they are made of leather (suede) material. If they aren't then yes, $70 is too much. It would be better priced at $39.99.
