Luxe vs. Less: Gold Ballet Flat

On the left, you may recognize the coveted Tory Burch Reva Ballerina Flat in Gold. Retail price: $195.00. On the right, we have the Payless ShoeSource Crest Ballet Flat in Gold. Retail price: $16.99. Now we know what you're thinking—How can you expect us to believe that a shoe from Payless could come even close to Tory Burch? To that we say, you'd be surprised. Sure, it's not buttery leather, but it won't empty out your wallet either. And besides, there are better things to spend your hard-earned cash on (rent, for example). So give it a try, you'll thank us later.
