Look for Less: Steve Madden 'Lancer' Sneaker

Steve Madden 'Lancer' dupes at Payless for half the price!
I recently came across this Steve Madden dupe thanks to my friend Heidi on Instagram (wishes_reality). I thought for sure she had posted the 'Lancer' but when I clicked for details, it took me to Payless!

Sure enough, Payless has a near identical dupe for less than half the price. The most popular color, gray, is almost sold out online after this weekend's sales but you can still score this shoe in black or red for just $24.99.

I hesitated to purchase them because you get free shipping at $25 and I hate when stores do that! But I may check my local Payless store this week to see if there are any more gray in stock. Comfy, cute and totally on-trend for spring!

That explains it! Similarities are too close to be a coincidence. Thanks!
