Pros All shoes in the colourful window display at Russell & Bromley are clearly priced, with big posters of particular styles catching the eye of passers-by. There are ‘As seen in Tatler’ placards beside relevant products to show the desirability of certain shoes. Popular styles are available in a range of colours, including a leather tassel loafer (£175) in black, white, brown and white, black and white, and orange and tan. Matching bags are merchandised with shoes, making the shopping experience easy. The shop is airy and clean, and staff are friendly, greeting shoppers into the store. Similar styles are placed together, making it easy to navigate. Russell & Bromley is the most expensive shop visited, with over-the-knee Stuart Weitzman suede boots coming in at £595, but the quality is high and justifies the price tag.
Cons The men’s footwear section is quite cramped compared with the women’s area.
