Inside the Factory

A truly British enterprise, each pair of Duke & Dexter shoes is designed in London and handmade in our family-run Sheffield workshop. Over 80 years old, the factory prides itself on combining deep-rooted skills with precision and care to ensure all products are crafted to the highest standard.

Committed to supporting British craftsmanship and appalled by many of the shocking practices within the fashion industry, we work closely with our workshop to sustainably source and handpick our leathers, suedes and fabrics. By releasing our styles in very limited runs, we're able to ensure we eliminate almost all wastage and only buy what we need. Simply put: Fuck Fast Fashion.
Durability and comfort remain at the brand’s core and our choice of linings and sole units lend themselves to the demands of a contemporary lifestyle. The attention given to each shoe at every step of the process is apparent in the finished product, which is then complemented with ‘Handmade in England’ embossed on the sole as a stamp of authenticity.
