If there’s nothing saying otherwise I wouldn’t see why not.  I worked in a different shoe store and they aren’t going to base whether or not you’ve worn them on the time.  They are going to look at wear on the bottoms, stretching, scuffing, and packaging.  It wouldn’t hurt to go down there or call if you don’t want to make the trip if you aren’t certain.  Many stores have a return policy of 90 days though so the sooner the better.

lol Sorry that sounded dumb of me.  I meant it as most stores are 90 days or less so if it isn’t the same for Payless, it’s probably not much longer than 90 days.  It might be a good idea to print off the website too so you have two places where it says nothing about time limit for exchanges/returns.

Maybe you’ll be able to at least get store credit which is better than keeping shoes you don’t like.  and if that doesn’t work out there’s always Weddingbee classifieds!

Good luck πŸ™‚

@lioness_89: I read some where you can wet a dish towel and place it in the shoe and put it in the freezer and it helps…Not sure if it works but it cant hurt to try….

I would go to the store and tell them your situation. Most companies value their customers and will do a return for a good reason.

I know this may sound silly but I work in retail. I am always more sympathetic to someone in person than over the phone. It is a lot harder for a worker to say no when your face to face.

@lioness_89: I’m glad you’re keeping them. I always found that putting on a pair of socks or two and wearing a shoe works for me Smile

@lioness_89:  I bought a shoe stretcher from Amazon that worked really well with my shoes. And it wasn’t expensive, like 7 dollars or something. It’s a wooden shoe shape that you put in your shoe and then there is a handle that you turn which expands the wood (and your shoe!) and does both length and width. Maybe try that as well as wearing socks with them!

When my heels arent broken in I wear a thick pair of socks with them and walk around the house for as long as I can bear.  It’ll stretch and break in the shoes.
