Payless opens fake luxury shoe store as prank
The discount shoe retailer opened a luxury store called "Palessi" and filled it with the brand's inexpensive footwear; shoes that vary from $20-$40, consumers paid up to $600 for them.

Once payless saw the reaction, they should have sat quiet and started making plans to open stores like that.

The point is that those people obviously thought the shoes were worth it and were willing to buy them. If someone is willing to buy your product at the price you offer it for, how does that make one a crook?

Well yea, the customers obviously intended to spend $600+ on shoes. Therefore they would have gotten what they wanted.
....and in a sale where both seller and buyer are happy, there are no crooks.
