My husband is not known for his fashion sense. If you want proof, let me just dangle this little photo in front of you. It’s from our wedding day. There are two things I can point out here. One, that outfit… We were married in Las Vegas at an Elvis wedding chapel, so we went for full on tacky, and yet this is probably the most stylish he’s ever actually looked. Two, those shoes… You see that he wore black sneakers with lime green laces and NO socks.
You may think that the shoe situation was an intentional nod to our tacky wedding. But actually, those were the only shoes he owned. In fact, other than a pair of work shoes that he had to buy when he was promoted and had to start going to business meetings, those are STILL the only shoes he owns.
So for Christmas this year, the kids and I decided that daddy needed some new kicks. We headed to Payless to find some. We were looking for a good quality pair of sneakers that could be worn with jeans (hubby’s usual uniform) but would also be good for the gym, as my honey is fit as a fiddle and loves to work out.
Payless has an amazing selection of men’s shoes. Everything from the sneakers we were looking for to dress shoes to work boots. Basically anything we could have wanted to buy was right there ready to be acquired.
The store manager greeted us as soon as we arrived, and immediately she asked if I was shopping for me or the kids. I told her that we were there for a Christmas gift for the husband, and she asked his size. I told her he was a 9.5, and she swept us to the back of the store and started pointing out various shoes she thought we’d like. She took us through the benefits of each brand/style and let us know that she was there to answer any questions.
I narrowed it down to a few different pairs that I thought would be okay, but I left the final decision up to the kids, as this was their gift to their dad. They chose some Cross Trekkers Men’s Excelerate Runners, which was a great choice.
With that taken care of, we headed for the check out, but on the way I spied something I couldn’t ignore. I’ve been in need of a new pair of comfy, warm boots for ages, and I saw these Vale Sweater Back Boots ON SALE. I figured since I’d also saved money on hubby’s shoes, I could afford to grab these up and bring them home.
If my husband isn’t known for his fashion sense, I promise you, I AM known for my shoe collection! I have a long history of love for shoes. This is why I love Payless so much. Amazing shoes at amazing prices!
I may have also checked out some of the beautiful infinity scarves they had on show, as well as the cool sunglasses. All accessories were on sale 50% off! In the end, I settled for a few pairs of gym socks that were SOOO super cute, I couldn’t resist.
If you’re looking for a great gift for someone in your life, or if you have a genuine love for quality shoes, head on over to Payless and check out their amazing selections. You won’t be disappointed! And don’t forget to check out Payless on Pinterest!
