PromoD never stops surprising me.
If there is ONE THING that you need to have if you sell clothes online, is a colour/size filter.
It generally always is on the left navigation bar, allowing the shopper to refine results based on a desired colour, or most importantly, on a desired size.
It’s pretty much the reason why shopping for clothes online is easier than in real shops: sorting your choices by colour, size or category takes much less effort than browing a real shop, crowded with people, with missing sizes, and so on.
Plus, you can see all you need, in one page, at a glance.
Now, PromoD, why would you hide your filter in the one place nobody would ever expect to find it?
Conventions are so useful, especially online. Why do UX designers think that moving a filter from the left navigation bar to the middle of the page, where nobody can see it, is a good idea?
Someone pleas help me understand that.
