Payless ShoeSource has announced that the Isabel Toledo for Payless fall collection is now available at select Payless stores across the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, the Philippines, countries in the Middle East, and Russia.

As Payless ShoeSource explains, Toledo, a global fashion icon, became an international household name last year for the "Lemongrass" Day Dress she designed for Michelle Obama to wear to her husband's inauguration. She is an inventor of many signature looks and has been described as a "cult figure" by the New York Times, one of the "100 designers that count" by Women's Wear Daily and "an important raw talent" by Vogue.

"The main inspiration for my first Payless collection was to create a line of shoes that I could wear on a daily basis and that would make a bold fashion statement, but also be very functional too," said Toledo.
