Payless Shoes on the Runway?

At Fall Fashion Week in New York, Christian Siriano debuted his long-awaited accessories line for Payless.With funky names like “Strut” and “She Devil,” the Egyptian-inspired footwear (and handbags!), are spiked out and chained up, and made for a bad-ass of the Nile. Shiny patent leather and satin fabrics, in deep brown chocolates, golds, and aqua turquoise, include prints with hieroglyphic-looking details. Exclusively being sold in only 400 Payless stores across the country, and ranging from $25 to $45, they are sure to be a hit with all my “fierce” ladies. Siriano is very excited about his first accessories collection, stating, “We started very high, very conceptual and very cool, and then made it wearable and marketable. I wanted it to be hard and rock-esque.” Tres chic, but the shoes do kind of resemble the dangerously spiky Christian Louboutins for Rodarte’s Fall 2008 show.
