Women's Gem Skimmer
my personal favorite
i LOVE these shoes! iv been looking for months to buy a new pair in the stores. (i hate to buy on line) i go threw about two pair a year.(im very hard on shoes) i wear them all the time because they feel like a sneaker but look like i cared about dressing up a little. i have six kids and four are under 4yrs old. i need to be able to run after them but not look like "THAT mom" i wish they came in wide and in other colors. i get a 9 but im really an 8 1/2 wide.

Find something better
These are fairly comfortable and I liked finding a slip-on. They look kind of like slippers or socks, and people often thought I wasn't wearing shoes. They also fall apart pretty quickly. The sole is almost completely worn away, and what's left is separating from the shoes. I should have gotten something sturdier.

I work at a bank, and we are required to wear black dress shoes. I always wear flat's but after a while my feet would hurt. So I decided to buy these and wear them when im working in the back! I love the style, and the fit, i sometimes forget im even wearing them, the only thing I really dislike the the bottom of the shoe. They are super slippery!!! I work in carpet and tile, and i've been this close .... to hugging the floor! lol...
Overall they are nice shoes, but I would not buy them again. Just because of the material on the bottom likes to collect lint and becomes very slippery!

Don't Stop Making These
I purchased these skimmers in black and another pair in tan at the beginning of last summer, and I wore them all the time. They were very comfortable, and I have a hard time finding shoes that fit comfortably anymore. The style was flattering, making my feet look more slender. I often need to have a wide shoe to get a comfortable fit, but the 8 1/2 fit really well. I wore them with jeans or capris and was very happy with them. Because I wear them without any socks or footies, they tend to get a bad odor by the end of the summer, so I tried to replace them with new ones for this summer. Unfortunately only the black are available now. I read that someone washed theirs and they came out fine, so I think I'll give that a try. And the new black ones I just purchased have been through mall parking lots drenched with rain a couple of times already with no ill effects, for which I am thankful. But I would like to plead with Payless: 1. Please do not stop making these and 2. Bring the tan ones back as well. 3. Brown would be a nice color to add as well. They are comfortable and nice looking casual shoes, not trendy, so please do not discontinue making them.

These are great shoes. I can wear them to work, running around town, trip to Great America, cutting the grass......the list goes on. Just slid your feet right in and you are on your way.

worst. shoes. ever!
These shoes are comfortable, but I wore them around for less than two weeks before I had worn through the soles of the shoes at the heel. I only wore them to walk a few blocks to and from work, for my retail job, and to go on walks with my toddler. I didn't do any high impact activity, and I certainly never tried to run or really work out in these.
If you want an athletic shoe, save your money and buy some running shoes. If you want a sneaker to get you from house to car to store & repeat, these may be for you.
