and the default setting is euros. Just called them and no answer but see that you can change the currency bottom of each page. Cheapest is around £235. Guess it's cheaper to buy some calf padding or put on 5 st in weight.
In fairness I couldn't find anything I liked in last year's Duo collection having bought a new pair of boots from them every year for years - disappointing. If their sales were down the problem wasn't the name but the last collection. I quite like some of the new styles but they're definitely expensive - I'll be waiting for the sales. And Ted & Muffy sounds like a children's brand. The worst bit is that on the zip tag there is a T&M logo. I didn't mind it being Duo - although better unbranded - but not sure I can bring myself to advertise the fact I buy 'Ted & Muffy'
If the high street ups their game now there is a clear market hole unless you're at the far ends of the fit spectrum you may be better off I'm only a bit bigger than average and there is plenty I can find on the high street now compared to a few years ago.
Fortunately I indulged in the sale last year and have some classic black boots that should last for a few years.
The quality would have to massively improve to justify those prices.
I'm really disappointed too. Duo was a life-saver for me. I'll be looking at thebootmakers.com this autumn. OK so they're not much cheaper than Ted and Muffy, but at least they have a sensible name ......
I was horrified at how much they have marked the prices up by. Shocking. I have a number of pairs of boots and shoes from Duo as I love them. Always had to buy during the sale as couldn't justify paying full price so there is absolutely no way I will be able to afford to buy from Ted & Muffy, even with my 'VIP' 15% discount!
Oh Why, Oh Why have they changed? Did another company buy them out or something? I haven't seen one pair of boots that will fit me with my tiny legs. I managed to nab a great pair when they very briefly did a trial of petite fit boots about 2 years ago, hopefully these will last as long as the 'half calf' style I bought from them 14 years ago (which are knee length on me) The high street is not good for me - only caters for lovely long legs
What a shame - - whoever thought of that name?? - - and all the fairy tale stuff!- Oooh no Duo - - we loved you as you were . . . . lower prices and a commercial distinct name. Clever marketing gone wrong - - -
