You may already know, but here at Dukes customers have the option to personalise their boots with their initials. We thought we would give you a little insight in to our day of personalising your boots using the most traditional methods:
First of all, we select out your initials that you have chosen to stamp in to your boots. The choices are endless and so we offer a classic font for all:
A heavy duty metal block is inserted in to the ankle part of your boots in order to obtain a flat and even surface ready for stamping and the foil of your choice is prepared (gold, silver, black etc):
Your letters are them stamped by hand using a hot stone plate and the hand tools with your letters. This is an example of us stamping Suke Waterhouse's Dukes:
As our suede boots have a grain, it takes up to 10 stamps to ensure the colour is vibrant and stands out. Here is the final product!
