WHEN DO WE TAKE YOUR PAYMENT?
We will take your payment once your card details have been processed through the online checkout. We take payment for orders up front as we sell bespoke and personalised items.
Dukes Boots Ltd can dispatch items to addresses other than the billing address of the cardholder, however, please ensure that the billing address listed on your Dukes order matches that of the registered card holder. Failure to match these addresses can cause possible delay in delivery or cancellation of your order.
We operate an address verification system (AVS) for your security.

Orders are subject to acceptance and availability. Once we have received your order we will send a confirmation e-mail to the email address you provided during the checkout process.
Once you have confirmed and submitted all the details associated with your order we will send you an email confirming we have received the order. The confirmation email is not a guarantee of stock availability. If we are unable to fulfil your order, we will cancel any unavailable items from your order and do our best to let you know as soon as possible. Whilst we aim to keep stock levels up to date, occasionally items will be out of stock.
All shoes are sold in UK sizes. Sizes and fits between last shapes do differ, please refer to our size guide on the product pages for more information. We do check all boots against standard UK last moulds to ensure the right size is being sent out.

We make every effort to describe items as accurately as possible, however, colour displays can be different depending on your computer settings, so exact colour matches are not possible. This means that colours of the products you order may differ from what you see on screen. We can't guarantee that the descriptions, colours or the other content is accurate, error free or complete. Because leather is a natural product, colours and shades may vary.
It is the nature of leather soles for there to be scratches and marks as a result of normal wear. If you are trying on boots for the first time, we advise doing so on carpet. Any worn, scuffed or marked soles strictly cannot be returned for a refund.
All prices are correct at the time of going to press and Dukes Boots Ltd is not liable to honour any misprints that may have occurred.
