Resoling Duckfeet: Before & After

Resoling Duckfeet

We love Duckfeet because they're unique, handcrafted, and timelessly designed. But one of the things we love most of all is how they are built to last. We talk about this a lot, and today we want to hone in on one specific quality of their longevity. 

Duckfeet are built to be happily resoled after years of love, adventuring, and wear. The natural crepe soles provide support, grip, and shock absorption. And after years of rough 'n' tumble exploration, these soles may start to wear down.

Need a new sole? No problem! We've got just the team for you.

Resoling 101

Not sure if you'll know when you need to resole? You're in the right place. It’s important that the crepe is replaced at right time to ensure a successful resole. If your Duckfeet are excessively worn or in very poor condition, they may need extra work and time for repair, or we unfortunately may not be able to resole them at all.

Here’s what you need to know:

Most of our shoe and boot styles have two layers of crepe rubber which means they can be resoled (unlike the Blavand, Mols, and sandal styles, which only have one layer). 
Your Duckfeet should be resoled when the first layer of crepe has broken through; not the second. The second layer of crepe acts as a protective layer between the ground and your mid-sole.
