Originally a mail-order company, Duo has expanded to the high street, and Manchester is home to one of only four of its physical shops. If you can't afford made-to-measure footwear, this is the next best thing. Here, staff measure calves as well as feet to provide perfectly-fitted, well-crafted women's boots.
With enormous ornate mirrors and flock wallpaper, Duo's King Street store feels like a boutique hotel. Put your feet up and relax while you're measured - and walk away with a pair of boots that traipse all over the high-street theory that one size fits all.
