Russell & Bromley


This upmarket one-stop shoe shop stocks a wide variety of designer labels with brands as diverse as Donna Karan, Superga sneakers and their in-house label. With the very cheapest shoes on offer costing a tidy GBP70, you'll need to have your credit cards ready and check your conscience in at the door; but for the quality (and brand names) offered, it's actually great value for money. Even more so if you visit during the sales, when the simple window displays and in-store chaos make this high-fashion W1 store look like an Essex discount chain, even if the reduced prices are the only similarity.
