Who We Are:
Payless is the largest specialty family footwear retailer in the Western Hemisphere, offering a wide range of shoes and accessory items at affordable prices for every member of the family. The company’s mission is simple: Become the first choice for style and value in footwear and accessories for our customers.
No single thing at Payless defines our culture. In fact, it really isn't a “thing” at all. It is our people and their passion – living our Guiding Principles, reflecting our brand through a commitment to diversity and inclusion, serving our customers and communities, and delivering business results. Our people define Payless and, simply put, they make us great.
Payless and our associates have a strong tradition of giving back to the communities where we work and live, and we give in a variety of ways. The Payless Foundation supports non-profit programs each year that help enrich the quality of life in our communities and support families in need. Payless has also donated more than $1 million in shoes each year since 2008 to children in need through Payless Gives Shoes 4 Kids, our annual holiday product donation campaign. And finally, we have a team of amazing associates who live our guiding principles of doing what’s right and inspiring possibilities through their outstanding support of our annual Choose to Give associate giving campaign.
