    As you know I love this High/Low stuff…and of course not being very discerning I picked them TOTALLY in the wrong order!!

    So when I decided which pair of these flats I liked the best, it turns out it was the pair from Payless!!  Who would’ve thought?  So it’s acceptable to buy shoes from Payless?  I’ve never done that!  Also, I checked out the Payless website and they only show a black version – no gold.  Is this metallic style a keeper through many seasons?

    Um..not sure how this is a hot shoe for fall.  In my opinion, these are dangerously close to being played out.  Everyone seems to own either the originals or the knockoffs at this point.  At this point the trend is over so it isn’t worth buying a disposable pair.  I say if you buy these now, you must really love the look of them and want to wear them forever- so invest in the Tory ones which are made from a really lovely, sturdy leather.

    Sorry BiancaWhite.. you’re wrong

    I am at fashion week and pretty much everyone here is either wearing a black flat with some sort medallion/embelishment or platform sandasl

    Wow. I was completely off. I guessed that the Payless one was the mid-range one, and that the other two were the opposite of what they actually were.

    I love these shoes although the Payless ones aren’t too too comfy.  However, they have been out since this past spring which is why everyone at fashion week was probably still wearing them.  They are wonderful for all seasons.
