An impressive offer and exceptional grasp of what represents good value for money.
Grey wedge shoe boots are directional while demi cowboy boots with ridge detail are more commercial. A tea-stained miner boot is original and Drapers hasn’t seen this style anywhere else - a rarity in the young fashion footwear market. Evening styles include lace ankle-cuff courts,
while a pair of black suede knee-high boots stands out. Topshop could afford to have more casual autumn boot styles on offer given the level of knitwear in store.
The area wasn’t staffed and no assistance was offered despite it being a quiet day. The footwear area has its own shopfit and two leather armchairs inject a touch of luxury. The music is calming and at the perfect volume, and lighting is easy on the eye.
Topshop excels on value this season. The ankle boot styles are all £65, which is reasonable given the quality and fashion-forward design detail employed. At £85 wedge boots seem pricey, but black courts in suede with a hidden platform are a bargain at £62 as are patent platform peep-toes for £60. Standout black suede knee-high boots are good at £60 and canvas hi-tops are £25. Flat loafers are great value and quality at £55, and the tea-stained leather miner boot is excellent at £65.
