Isabel Toledo for Payless Available at, but not

New, 2 comments

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Beginning with its Gap collaboration a few years ago, Parisian tastemaking boutique Colette has really embraced the cheap-chic movement. The latest in stock at the now-legendary concept store? Isabel Toledo for Payless shoes. They're $46 from the French retailer—a little north of the usual Payless pricepoint, and they're not even available at (yet).

We're interested in what you think of them, aesthetically. Would you pay $46 for the rainbow-soled (they come in yellow, blue, white, and red) lace-ups? Let's put it to a vote, shall we.

Update: A Payless rep contacted us and said the red, blue, and white versions are exclusive to Colette and the yellow-soled versions will be available at and in select Payless stores on September 7. Hear that, America? You only get yellow.
