Look down at your feet. Chances are, where once would have been a pair of brogues is now a pair of slippers. At best perhaps some sneakers. Lockdown has had a profound effect on all aspects of style but possibly nowhere is this more evident than in your footwear.
Which is why we’ve been glad to have Duke + Dexter to call on over the last few months. Founded in London in 2015, the brand takes a modern approach to classic footwear, combining contemporary design with traditional craftsmanship and imbuing its progressive pieces with a familiar British wit – finding it famous fans in the likes of Ryan Reynolds. Smart enough for office yet casual and comfortable enough for working from home, its elegant styles have been a saviour during locked down life.
And now we’re sharing the love. We’ve teamed up with Duke + Dexter to offer one lucky winner £600 to spend on their choice of footwear from the brand’s expansive collection – and there’s a lot on offer. Looking for something smarter than your slippers to wear while working from home? Duke + Dexter’s Loungewear collection boasts a range of super comfortable loafers, slides and mules in a bright array of leathers, suedes and even velvets so you can push your style boundaries without ever stepping outside your front door.
Or perhaps it’s a new pair of sneakers you’re in need of? In which case allow us to point you in the direction of Duke + Dexter’s signature Drake design. An elegant leather lace-up founded on sturdy, hard-wearing construction, you’ll never be tempted back to high street trainers again. Similarly, the brand’s timeless Opus slipper is a rakish, more formal loafer and is available in a range of subtle and statement finishes perfect for the festive season.
If you’re feeling bold then one of Duke + Dexter’s many collaborative collections will offer the perfect pair. Get into top gear with boots, loafers and sneakers designed in partnership with Jenson Button, test your street smarts with a design custom painted by Made by Mensa or give your sneakers a hiking-inspired twist put to the test by skier Jon Olsson. You can also put yourself in the capable hands of Duke + Dexter’s expert team with slippers hand-painted by its in-house artist Jess or give back with Step Up To The Plate, a range of quirky food-inspired loafers from which 100% of profits are donated to food bank charity the Trussell Trust.
So what are you waiting for? There’s no such thing as too many shoes – especially when they’re as good as Duke + Dexter’s – so simply fill in the form below by 26 November 2020 for your chance to win £600 to spend on your favourite pairs. Good luck!
