   multi-brand retail platform will offer additional products 
   and services that will enhance the enjoyment and wellbeing

   be based on the foundations of Hotter Shoes as a trusted brand,

   through data insight. Unbound's expanded offering beyond footwear 
   will feature apparel and wellness products and services, with 
   third-party complementary brands featuring alongside new Unbound 
   brands, as well as Hotter Shoes. 
 
   Hotter Shoes has been transformed from a retail to a multi-channel 
   business with a strong and growing digital focus over the last

   values its brand and products. Hotter Shoes' direct-to-consumer 
   channels now reach 29% of the female population in the UK over 
   the age of 55, providing them with footwear that allows them 
   to do more of what they love. Cultural and demographic shifts 
   now provide an opportunity to further monetise the existing
