Have you guys seen this? It's hilarious.

So Payless, they opened a store in Santa Monica, but called it "Palessi" and people/influencers came in excited about the "high-quality" footwear not knowing they were just a re-branded version of regular Payless brand shoes.

Brilliant.

i saw this. it just proves my theory that most people are sheeple. if someone says its hot they believe it. especially if the people saying its hot are currently trending people who review stuff online. thats all they need. they would buy dirt if one of these people said dirt was the new thing.

no.lavar ball stole the idea from other shoe makers that over charge for their shoes and slap a name on it and say "high end" and watch people drop insane amts of money to purchase them. if lavar ball was Lave' Lavalino, no one would have had an issue with his shoe prices. toss a foreign white guy's name on it and bam its Ok for the over price. lol
