Ducker, in Oxford?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm going to be in Oxford, England for a week or two, and was wondering if anyone knows how Ducker, the shoe makers, are holding up lately. I once got a pair of suede shoes from them that remain among my favorite pairs, though I recall that at the time, those were the only ones (or the only ones I liked) built on the last that worked well on my feet.. Worth going back to, or are they just selling general English brands I can get anywhere? Anything else in town worth checking out?

Their best shoes are made by Grenson. According to the Grenson website, Ducker offers Grenson's bespoke service too.

Bicester outlet is quite good. London is only 45 mins. away.

Ducker of Oxford is a retailer not a manufacturer. As RJMan has already mentioned their top private label range is made by Grenson. It is possible (although I don't know for certain) that they specify a particular last and that their shoes fit different from Grenson's handgrade range.

Thanks for the replies. At my earlier visit, they certainly gave the impression that they made bespoke shoes in-house. Whether true or not, though, I was interested in their RTW shoes, and if these are Grensons, that's good to know. I can ask about any other shoes on the last that I liked.
