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 Payless.com (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 Payless.com and in select Payless stores on September 7. Hear that, America? You only get yellow.
