This fall, students will return to school in high spirits sporting the latest must-have shoe and accessory trends such as plaid flats, argyle backpacks, graphic and high-top sneakers, moc-toe loafers, peep-toe and ballet flats, mary jane heels, wedges, and vintage-inspired pumps.

At prices averaging under $20 each, kids and teens can ring in the new school year outfitted in the latest brands and trends and still celebrate fashion in tight economy courtesy of Payless and its mission to democratize fashion and design in footwear.

Payless ShoeSource is bringing shoppers the latest styles at unbeatable prices, including its Designer Collections, which hit the runway at New York Fashion Week and include such labels as Abaete for Payless, Lela Rose for Payless, and Alice + Olivia for Payless.

The company has also secured its position as a "House of Brands" retailer with an expanded portfolio of well-known brands now offered at Payless stores including Airwalk, American Eagle, Dexter, Champion and Dunkman.

"We are committed to delivering fresh, fashion-forward branded products that channel youthful energy and individuality," said Matt Rubel, chief executive officer and president of Payless ShoeSource.

"There's no better time to shop at Payless than in tight economic times. With the arrival of our back-to-school collection featuring top brands like Airwalk and American Eagle, not only will trend- and brand-conscious kids step out
with confidence, but parents can feel assured they are getting a great value that won't blow their already strained budget."
