I am a new grad, and working, and while I'd love to shop Piperlime, or DSW, I don't have that kind of money yet.

What do you think of people who shop at Payless? Do you think it's a waste of time, or totally worth it for those on a budget?

I know things are tight, but I'm not a fan of cheap shoes. Payless is okay if you just want to try a trend, but you're better off saving up and investing in some good, classic shoes/boots that will hold up, won't ruin your feet, and will last for years.

I seldom ever darken their doors. That said, I have a pair of black sandals from there which I bought 8+ years ago. They are comfortable, cute and still look good! So you can find some things there that are good.

Payless doesn't have shoes like they used to, seems the quality has gone down. You can always try online (6pm.com has some good finds in the clearance section), Rack Room Shoes. Shoe Carnival seems to be increasing their prices.

Payless yrs. ago used to actually sell Leather shoes, not so much, if at all, anymore, as the previous posted said, you might luck out but I wouldn't count on it. Keep looking at places like TJMaxx and Marshall's, sometimes you luck out. Also, if you're good w/watching sales, using coupons, etc. Dept. stores sometimes have good deals.

Payless in Canada has very poor quality shoes, so if the quality is poor in the States, then I can just imagine what we are getting up here. When I am in the States, I go to TJ Maxx, and check out sales. The other thing I do is to shop at the end of the season, and buy quality shoes at very reduced prices. If I get a few classic styles on sale with a few quirky styles, I am really thrilled. Oh, and because I tend to love shoes so much, I tend to shop for shoes all year. I have been called "Imelda" more than a few times!!

Haven't stepped foot in one in at least a decade. God willing, I never will have to again either.

I'm not a fan either... when I was a kid I had some shoes from there and I cried and they didn't last long (thankfully). I don't think I've been in the store in 20 years or more.
