With one (1) billion dollars in assets and ten (10) billion dollars in liabilities, it doesn't look good for Payless Shoes.

Payless has been grasping at straws for years. To save money back in 2000/late 90's, they begin purchasing product from companies that made poor quality product. That helped for a few years. Then people started spending more on shoes that lasted longer and didn't hurt their feet as much. Payless faced ruin again so they struck up a deal with ShopKo to sell their shoes out of their locations and Payless closed about 1/3 of their stores.

So I kind of wonder what they are going to do now, they always seem to get a Hail Mary right when you think it's over for them.

Payless will only delay the inevitable. There is another recession upcoming. Unneeded. lower quality shoes will not appeal to an already strapped American consumer. I wear a size 12. I easily put on 2,500 to 3,000 miles per pair. Payless quality could not handle this.

They sell cheap Chinese shoes that are fine, I guess, if all you care about is fashion. I'm with mothernature on this one. I normally walk 3-4 miles a day. It's worth spending a little more for comfort and long wearing shoes. I respect my feet and try to be good to them by not shopping at places like Payless. Other discounters have name brands with better quality footwear (I'm thinking of places like Shoe Carnival etc.) and I suspect they do better.

Nordstroms is great, although pricey, but ebay is another source of inexpensive good quality shoes. If you are patient and keep checking, you can sometimes find some pretty good sales on zappos.
