Russell & Bromley, 57-58 East Street

A great range of winter boots ensures Russell & Bromley stands out this season

Looks 8

Riding, shearling, military and biker tick off all the key boot trends this season at Russell & Bromley.

A great range of basic courts creates elegance and contrasts with the wacky loafers in leopard print, both of which are spot on for the eclectic Russell & Bromley customer. A shearling-lined boot style called Wildside is best in class, as are patent brogues in claret. Suede peep-toe boots with gold trim turn shoppers’ heads, as do clog boots.

Experience 9

Russell & Bromley nails customer service this season. It took a while for Drapers to be served but once the service was in full swing it was textbook perfection. The size asked for in the colour desired wasn’t available, so the size above and below were brought out along with the correct size in an alternative shade. But it was the upselling that sealed the deal - two bags from the autumn range that ‘might complement the shoes’ were also delivered.

Value 7½

Against competitors like LK Bennett, Russell & Bromley’s prices are similar but the styles are superior. A leather cavalry boot with suede trim retails at £295 but the design and finish are exquisite. £165 is too much for a grey peep-toe court but £145 feels right for the leather buckle-over monk-style shoe. Wacky gold loafers are £135, while suede peep-toe boots with a gold trim are pricey at £245. Russell & Bromley was trading at full price the day Drapers visited.
