Approximately 90,000 girls' zipper boots have been recalled by Payless because of a design flaw that allows the zippers to interlock while a child is walking, causing the child to trip and fall.

Payless has received five reports of the zipper pulls interlocking, including one report of a 4-year-old girl who fell and skinned her knees.

This recall involves black jeweled girls boots. The boots have a silhouette of a guitar on the outer leg and a guitar-shaped zipper pull on the inner leg. Hannah Montana is engraved on the boot outsole, and a photo of the singer and show s character is printed on the box. The boots were sold in girls sizes 10 to 4 . No other styles or models are involved in this recall.

The boots were sold at Payless ShoeSource stores nationwide and Payless.com from August 2007 through September 2007 for about $27.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends that these Chinese-made boots should be taken away from children immediately and returned to the store where purchased for a full refund or exchange.

For additional information, contact Payless at (800) 654-0697 between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 a.m. Eastern Time daily. Consumers can also visit the firm s Web site at www.payless.com
