Off the Rack: Payless June Offerings, Plus The Good Shoe Project

It's BOGO time once again at Payless, so I stopped by one of the stores in my area to see if I could find anything worth getting. Selection varies greatly from store to store, but I did see some cute sandals, including red and white polka-dot espadrilles, some basic white peep-toe wedges and some simple yet chic metallic strappy flat sandals, which look incredibly comfortable and perfect for pairing with shorts or summer dresses.

I also noticed Payless has launched something called The Good Shoe Project: When you buy a pair of Payless "Hope" shoes (a simple canvas slip-on, $19.99), Payless will donate a pair of shoes to a child in need. Of course Payless is piggybacking off of TOMS shoes but it seems like Payless might be able to reach a different demographic with their campaign, and it's all for a good cause after all. The fact that the Payless slip-ons look like TOMS doesn't bother me as the TOMS design is based on age-old footwear styles worn by countless cultures around the globe, so it's nothing original.

More photos after the jump...see anything you like?

You can combine a 20% off coupon with the BOGO for an even better deal! I just scored a great haul using that!

I'm a huge Payless fan, but can you tell me why the big jump in price for their designer line?

I have NO idea. I love a lot of the styles but refuse to pay that much at Payless when I can do better at Target, DSW, Marshalls, etc.

I recently bought a pair of the TOMs look-a-likes for work (gotta wear black shoes rule). Sure as heck beats paying an arm and leg for a pair of TOMs (even though they have better prints and colors).

I always think the Payless shoes look nice in photos but in person the fit and quality underwhelms me. The white espadrilles are really cute though :-). I just bought a pair of leather B.O.C (Born) espadrilles from DSW that I can't wait to wear!

I have a pair of Dexter flats (silver with a bow) from Payless, and they are probably the most comfortable and well cushioned pair of flats I've ever bought.
