As of August 11, 2009, you now have 8 new stylish reasons to shop at Payless. We were selected as wear-testers for the fresh, new Jeff Staple designed “STPL AIRWALKS.” These kicks come in five very cool styles for men; including the 50/50, the Gambit, the Heaven slip-on and the Terrain. The ladies get three styles to choose from. These limited-edition shoes are just in time for back-to-school shopping and won’t break the bank with prices ranging from $30 to $50 a pair!
The samples we received were the Heaven slip-on to wear and review. The AIRWALK Heaven is a comfortable lightweight, no-lace, slip-on shoe. We liked the unique and fresh illustrated design and comfy insole. We didn’t like the slick feel of the non-marking sole.
What? Heaven Twin Gore – MENS STPL X AIRWALK
Why? Because you can get these off and on in a hurry. Sunny Southern California was the primary inspiration for this canvas upper. The print on the shoes was created by designer jeffstaple featuring illustrated print of wind, water and waves. The Heavens are made of fabric, rubber and other man-made materials.
Where? STPLxAirwalk limited-edition fall collection is exclusively available now at select Payless ShoeSource stores and Payless.com.
You need them if: You want a fresh pair of designer kicks that don’t look cheap!

Our take on these shoesoftheday: Comfortable slip-on shoe and perfect if you’re headed back-to-school, or to California on a budget!
