As seen at Payless West Mall

While attempting to do some Christmas shopping for myself yesterday I ran into Carnival Jumbie at West Mall who pointed me to the direction of boots at the local Payless Shoe Store which she had discussed before in a comment on Afro Chic's Ate Logo boots find. Oh, a note on the Ate Logo Boots is that the metallic ones are very nice, I am thinking they can be worn as is , no further decoration needed and they are very light.

The boots at Payless West Mall are $240.00 and come in these two styles:

Sizes are somewhat limited at this branch since I saw nothing larger than a 8 and 1/2. These boots are certainly cheaper than the ones at Ate Logo and Piccadilly (check Afro Chic's blog to see photos of those), but will require spray painting to get the desired metallic effect. I tried one style at is it quite comfortable, I like that the inside is lined with a soft material that cushions the leg. As you can see many stores in Trinidad are getting on the boots bandwagon for Carnival!

I also heard from Tiffany (another blogger I ran into) that there are boots at a store upstairs West Mall but unfortunately did not have time to check them out; maybe sometime over the weekend I will brave the masses of shoppers to journey once again to the mall. And there you have it, another boots report for all those still looking for footwear!
