KDUK works with some of the largest retailers in Europe, offering them a bespoke design and sourcing service. We are able to provide market leading trend and design, efficiently handled by our own sample room facility in China. This is further supported by our fully audited factories, with whom we are focused on maintaining the highest level of quality, which we carefully manage through a strong ethical and technical control process. This has enabled us to successfully deliver millions of pairs of shoes to our retail partners.
KDUK is a design led company that works in a truly bespoke way with each of our customers, enabling us to develop a deep understanding of the specific requirements of each retail partner with whom we work with. We offer all genders of footwear, with a strong emphasis on sports / fashion product, utilising both cemented and vulcanised constructions.
KDUK also undertakes consultancy work. We have worked with and assisted a number of UK and European retailers and brands.
The KDUK China office is where our sample room is located together with further merchandise teams, QC teams and China management. The China office is very much an extension of the UK office and we work together in a well structured and co-ordinated manner to ensure that we can offer a seamless full service offering to all of our customers.
The KDUK UK office is based just outside of Guildford in Surrey (30 mins from both Heathrow and London Waterloo Railway Station), the office is appropriately located in Shoelands Farm. The trend, design, sales and merchandise teams are all based in this office.
