I have been in payless many times, over the years......have never bought anything there. I sometimes, have luck at TJMaxx.
A skechers store has opened in my area. After buying a couple of pairs.....I will never buy another brand again. I even got some dressy sandles for a wedding there. I could of danced all night. LOL

I'll buy them almost anywhere except online.

Bought some Red Wing boots from the local shoe store chain. I've bought athletic shoes from the local sports-shoe chain. I've bought some at Cabeals or Bass Pro Shop. I've bought a pair at Nordstrom Rack. I've bought Dress Shoes from Johnston Murphy or Allen Edmonds, ideally at their outlets since they're pricey.

I avoid buying lower-end shoes; you pay for it in the end one way or another.

There is an indie shoe store in my neighborhood. It has been open for around 30 years. Around 2 months ago it put a sign up that said "going out of business sale." And the inventory dwindled. I thought it was done, the sign seemed to be covered up.

Over the weekend I noticed a new sign went up "We are not going out of business! We are open."

Now I am just confused.

I used to enjoy the shoe stores in downtown Berkeley, and there was one in a little cluster of stores north of there, somewhere around Shattuck and Vine? I haven't been there in a few years, though; I don't know if any of those stores are still there. It's pretty convenient on BART.

You're in Seattle? I guess you're right; I don't recall any, when I lived there. There were a couple of fashion stores in the U District, that carried nice shoes as a side thing, but no stores that were shoes only. Mostly, I got my shoes on trips to the Bay Area.
