Welcome to our website...we are experts in footwear design and development. Enjoy looking through the work. The site is constantly evolving and new imagery and designs will be added all the time.
Versatility in Design
Two decades of industry experience means we know how to approach the design of any and every kind of footwear. There is little we haven't covered.
When it comes to performance footwear, we are specialists in competition, road and trail running footwear; outdoor footwear ranging from technical fast approach and lightweight hiking product to more traditional all-leather hiking boots. We also have experience in both the design and development of very technical climbing and expedition footwear.
But we don't only do complicated product! Much of our experience has been in the design and creative-direction of casual/lifestyle footwear; drawing inspiration from trend and consumer insight to generate unique product solutions that are brand-right.
Real World Innovation
Innovation is a word you hear a lot in design. Real world innovation solves design challenges in meaningful, realistic and relevant ways. Dulster has the industry-leading creativity, knowledge and discipline required to achieve this and avoid the pitfalls that less experienced designers stumble on.
We know how shoes are made. We have a deep knowledge of every aspect of the design to development to manufacturing process and how to exploit each to the benefit of the other. The breadth of our experience means we have knowledge of all kinds of footwear constructions, hard and soft materials, componentry, mouldings, processes and applications.
Development and Sourcing
With a huge sourcing network in Southern China, we work with quality, accredited and reliable factories and suppliers. We can guide product through development and sampling to commercialisation with a keen eye on the original design vision. Working creatively with real-world constraints is something we relish.
Dulster has forged close and successful partnerships with a number of great brands.
