Hit or Miss: Office 5/10

First floor, unit 59



Pros The women’s own brand offer at Office is strong, with a broad range of styles to suit every occasion, from wedged espadrilles to flat leather sandals. The product is quite fashion forward, which suits the retailer’s younger demographic. Standout styles include a chunky block heel sandal with thick holographic snakeskin-effect straps for £60. There is also a placard telling shoppers that women’s shoes go up to a size nine, which is useful for taller and larger females. In men’s there is a good selection of more formal styles, with leather brogues a competitive £50, the same price as H&M.

Cons Office is slightly expensive compared with its obvious competitors. Women’s leather loafers with tassel detail are £68 at Office, while a pair at Next of similar style and quality are just £50. The store is cramped as there is a mid-season Sale rack at the front. Men’s product is hidden at the very back, meaning male shoppers have to walk through the whole women’s area before finding relevant shoes.
