EVERYWHERE—Christian Siriano has a tendency to send deeply insane shoes down the runway, then produce watered-down versions for his Payless line. You can't really blame him, Payless not being known for its directional vision, but it's still sort of thrilling to imagine his Nicholas-Kirkwood-meets-Alexander-McQueen unwearable platforms going for $49.99 at your local mall. As such, we're pleased and a little frightened to see that SheFinds just posted about Siriano's deranged claw-shaped heels as if they're going to show up in Payless for spring. Please tell us this is going to happen, O collab gods. [SheFinds via Nitrolicious]
