Recently, large-family favorite and cheap kicks kingpin Payless Shoes took over a former Armani store in California. Their goal? Prank the living shit out of fashion influencers and other idiots willing to pay a king’s ransom for your usual Payless buy-one-get-one boots. The fake high-fashion pop-up named, poetically, “Palessi” was a roaring success. As a fashion outsider and member of the middle class, few things put the color in my cheeks like a cheeky prank on fashionistas and people with too much money to burn.
