retail for $36.99, are currently on sale for $29.99, plus you can use code 59863 shared by my awesome reader Kellie to get another 40% off. I initially ordered the soft gray version with a lesser discount, plus free ship to any Payless store (you just have to go pick it up).
The black is currently sold out online in all sizes but 5.5, but the product locator showed plenty in-stores. The only downside to buying in-store versus online is the price ($29.99 in stores), but I found an amazing SA who entered the 59863 coupon code into the register and gave me the online 40% off : ) I only plan on keeping one pair, so will await the greys to arrive and do a compare.
Fit: True to size. A sz 5 fits me perfectly. For reference, I typically take 5 in Ann Taylor perfect pumps, and am between a 5 and 5.5 in BR shoes. No toe cleavage.
Comfort: So, so surprised at the comfort. The toes are semi-squared, so no crushed toes. The chunky heel and platform are sturdy and easy to walk in. I am not sure how these feel for wider feet, though.
Measurements: Heel height on my sz 5s (measured from the back center) is about 4.75″ and the platform is about 1.25.” Insoles of the size 5s measure about 8.75.”
Quality: I’m not usually a fan of Payless shoes even for the price, but these are better-made than many of their offerings. The outer is a micro faux-suede, and the soles are a plastic-rubber mix and don’t skid. Worth the $18 in my opinion.
PPS – In love with H&M; Spring arrivals so far (lots of kelly green and ivory). I tweeted a preview, and will do a review post soon.
