Doesn’t it feel good to pay less?   It sure does, especially when you can score designer shoes at Payless prices.  Just in time for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, the affordable shoe retailer’s guest designers — Stacey Bendet (Alice + Olivia), Lela Rose, Laura Poretzky (Abaete), and newest guest designer Christian Siriano — unveiled the Payless Fall ’09 Designer Collections in true “high-low” fashion on the runway.

“This season presents a range of inspirations from the Egyptian landscape to the enchanted forest — the unique designs from each are truly amazing,” LuAnn Via, CEO and president of Payless ShoeSource said in a press statement. “And we are excited to see the Payless product paired with the designer’s ready-to-wear on the runway.”

“Recessionista fashion is really relevant today,” Via added.  “And we are thrilled to bring designer runway looks to our stores season after season and to give these designers a broader audience for their creativity.”

I’m feeling all of the rocker designer booties. To check out these hot designer styles and more, go to or drop in a Payless store near you.
