Shopping Alert: Abaete for Payless

09/06/2006 at 01:02 PM ET

Hot designer creates line for mass retailer — it’s the big idea in fashion right now (has everyone bought their Paul and Joe yet?) But until now all of the high/low designer shoe lines have still had designer price tags on them, like Tara Subkoff for Easy Spirit and Vivienne Westwood for Nine West–gorgeous, but still hundreds of dollars. As of today, Payless and Abaete, designed by hot NYC designer Laura Poretsky, have gotten it right- amazing shoes for $20- $45. That’s right, those droolworthy suede Sky boots (left) are only $45 and come in brown and black suede. Need new pumps? Check out the hot spectator style Oliver pumps, $25. And the super-cute Casey Flat (love it red with black patent bow!) is only $20. What are you waiting for?

Mass retail is a definite money maker! The big designers are finally catching on (check Very Vera Vera Wang at Kohl’s) I’m definitely going to check these out.

Just fyi for readers, those are 100% faux suede. They feel a bit like a stuffed animal in real life…

These shoes are fabulous looking, as are the “Oliver” pumps. I am a shoe freak. And Payless now allows me to overindulge in celebrity style on a less than “celebrity” budget.

I got the oliver (in black and white), and they are soooo cute. Comming from a girl who LOVES shoes.

I’m glad their faux suede!!! I’d rather wear a stuffed animal than a real animal any day.
