All the kids who grew up getting teased for wearing Payless shoes just got the ultimate payback.
Payless recently took over an old Armani store, renamed it Palessi, and invited many fashion influencers to a launch party.
At the event, the fashion experts laughed, sipped champagne, and gushed over the shoes that were marked up 1,800 percent from their $19.99 to $39.99 price point.
One of the shoppers paid as much as $645 before they were told they just dropped some serious bread on Payless shoes.
"Shut up! Are you serious?" they exclaimed.
All of the pranked shoppers got their money back and were allowed to keep the shoes for free.
