Isabel Toledo for Payless Toreador Pumps

You may know Cuban-American designer Isabel Toledo as a favorite of our First Lady - she designed Michelle Obama's yellow inauguration ceremony ensemble - but fashionistas everywhere adore her couture collection, which starts around $3,000 a piece. Ow. Which is why we were so excited to hear that she's put together a capsule collection for Payless Shoe Source for Fall 2010! These tango-riffic Isabel Toledo Toreador Pumps ($45) are one of the most wearable pieces in the collection, and we're coveting them hardcore.

(PS - The jury's still out on these either so-OTT-they're-fabulous or so-OTT-they're-too-much Belted Poodle Boots.)

I know you guys are busy, but please--if you're going to post drool-worthy AND insanely affordable shoes, make sure they're actually available for purchase in a variety of sizes first. If you're going to tease us with stuff like these shoes, only to find out that they'll only fit tiny or giant feet, don't even bother.

Oh Janessa, thanks for the call out. We do actually look, but sometimes things just sell out fast. And sometimes we think the item is cool enough to post anyway...personally, I'd rather have seen them than not even know they existed.

But I agree, it's a HUGE bummer. And we'll try harder to let you know in the post itself if the item isn't available for the more in demand sizes. Boo on us.

This is very late relative to the original posts regarding these shoes, but I had the same heartbreak over finding the shoe online in my size (fairly giant).

I am happy to report I found the shoe in the store in my size today. My point is, try checking in the Payless stores. You may have to try big city stores if they don't have them at your local store. They carried the full line in Chicago when I looked today.
