Payless Shoe Source Korea


Korea Payless leopard boots --

There are lots of great shoes to buy here in Korea.  But if you are a woman and your shoe size is anything above a size 8, finding your size can be pretty darn frustrating, am I right ladies?  But about a month ago a new option, besides the Exchange, opened up to satisfy our large shoe shopping needs. There’s a…wait for it!!!….

Payless Shoe Source!

Okay, you didn’t need to wait for it, it’s in the title. Anyway, last weekend, in the name of research, I set out to investigate and this size 9.5 lady came back with three new pairs of shoes. My friend emailed me a map with directions and after only a couple of minutes out of the subway, there it was, a three story Payless.

Cue heavenly sounding harp music.

I took a look around, the shoes looked cool–trendy.  And they had plenty of boots, which is what I was searching for.  But did they have MY SIZE?  I scanned the boxes…255, 260…265!!! They had 265. And LOTS of ’em and 270s (size 10) too.  And the price was right. There was a sale and almost all the boots were 15,000-20,000 won.

Sure, the quality reflected the price, but who expects quality when you go to Payless. The point is they fit.

So, without further ado, here are some pictures.  Only as I was headed out the door did I discover there was a whole other floor of women’s shoes downstairs.  (Upstairs are men’s and kids’ shoes).

Happy shopping!

Payless has gone upscale. They had some $200 Lady Gaga shoes up in there. These ones are by some designer who I guess is supposed to be pretty fancy.

These boots were a good price, but the (Dora) sneakers were like 30-40,000 I think.
