Off the Rack: What to Buy at Payless This Fall

Payless 'Max' ankle boots are perfect for fall.

I may be jumping the gun here in mid-August, but I'm ready to talk about what to buy at Payless for Fall - there's so much goodness! I got their back-to-school mailer and immediately headed to my store to pick up the 'Max' Bootie in Olive for $34.99 plus 20% off using the coupon from the mailer (sign up for the Payless mailing list to get your coupon). This boot will be a workhorse in my everyday wardrobe - it's cute, stylish, yet comfy enough for chasing after kids, running errands, you name it! It'll look good with dresses or jeans. I'm already contemplating going back for the brown. Runs TTS.

Then there's the 'Martinez' boot, which looks a lot like the Steve Madden 'Western' boot which in turn looks a lot like the Isabel Marant 'Dicker' boot. This style has been around a couple seasons because it's such a cool, on-trend classic. I already own a similar style from last season in black and I'm thinking about getting the tan because they're just that good!

For the work day, the Brianna Pointed Flats have serious potential, and if they're anything like these lace-up flats (which I own in black), they could be very comfortable, too.

Full disclosure: I also freelance for the official Payless Shoesource blog, Sole Style (shameless plus: check out my latest article, The Best Beach Sandals for Summer, if you have a sec!) but the decision to shop at Payless and write this post was entirely my own and unrelated. I'm reminded of those old Hair Club for Men commercials in the '80s where the guy said, "I'm not only the president, I'm also a client" - yeah, it's kinda like that! LOL. But in this case, I'm not only a Payless blog contributor, I'm also just a genuine, regular customer. (smiley emoticon)

Those Max booties are super cute. I hope they have them here at Payless in Canada because they look like a great shoe for my fall trip to London and Amsterdam.

Great choices! I love the two booties you wrote about, but I am most excited about the flats. The recent trendy lace up flats are a little too fussy for me, but these are right up my alley. I'm glad you blog for them... you can tell us about the best they have :-). Thanks!!!

Thanks for site :-) Love it!

Yes absolutely. I haven't worn them for days in a row since we've been having really hot weather still but so far they've been very comfy. They don't have as much support as say, Aerosoles, but I find them to be very comfortable.
