Why our customers are at the heart of everything we do….
Our most loyal customers would say that we put them at the heart of everything we do…and for good reason. Our raison d'être is to produce beautifully fitting boots for everyone! So, without our eclectic collective of customers – we simply wouldn’t be here!
Duo was formed more than 40 years ago by our founders, Ted and Muffy Maltby, who opened a shoe shop in Bath, England. They would have regular customers visiting their store back in the early 00s who would struggle to zip up the standard bought-in boots which they stocked. Ted and Muffy had discovered a gap in the market – boots to fit all legs, no matter what shape or size they are.
They realised this couldn’t go on ignored, and so they began working on designs for a collection of classic, stylish boots in a choice of calf size. Since then, Duo has gone from strength to strength.
Over time, our collections have evolved to include ankle boots and seasonal shoes. However, our passion for fit, quality, style and our love for our customers remains as strong as ever.
As many of you may remember, in 2015 Duo rebranded to Ted&Muffy, paying homage to our founders. We also underwent a dramatic facelift. Having spent decades nurturing the Duo name, our customers recognised that it had been misplaced – and we listened!
Our commitment to our customers is paramount to us, and so it was decided in 2017 that we’d revert back to our roots – and we renamed to DuoBoots. But we never lost the essence of Duo:
Unrivalled choice of sizes
This is at the heart of what we do, and always will be. We offer the widest range of calf sizes out there, from 30cm-50cm.
Many of our current styles are firm Duo favourites, from the likes of Huntsman, to Siren and Avocet. But we also introduce new styles with a classic touch every season – take a look at Belmore or Axbridge.
Artisan quality that stands the test of time
We’ve been working with the same artisan bootmakers in Portugal for decades. Each boot is hand finished and crafted using only the finest leathers and suedes from Europe.
Two years on, the re-established DuoBoots has continued to inspire our customers. Our collection has something for every one of our customers…
