Breaking in: Before & After

Faborg

We talk a lot about how the pebbled-leather models like Århus and Silkeborg are buttery soft right out of the box. But what about the full-grain leather models, are you wondering what the break in process is like?

As you wear them in, the full grain leather softens and becomes more and more flexible with each outing. The leather learns where it needs to crease, bend, and soften for your specific feet and gait. Furthermore, the patina mirrors this softening, which is hands-down one of our favorite things about Duckfeet.

To illustrate this evolution, we asked some of the Duckfeet USA team to show us their most loved pairs. (We added a break-in scale to show where each ranks in the softening process). 

On the left side you'll see the well-loved shoe and on the right is a brand new one. Take a look at these photos and notice the difference a little bit of time makes!
