Meet the Roskilde

Duckfeet Roskilde

We're going over what makes the Roskilde one of the most popular and easiest Duckfeet styles.



This unisex boot is great for both men and women, and offers an easy slip-on entry.

Duckfeet Roskildes are pull-on chelsea boots made from vegetable-tanned heavy leather, built on top of a shock-absorbing crepe rubber sole.

The leather is a strong cow hide that softens with wear and, being a natural product, is very breathable.

They are secured with elastic on either side to allow for easy entry. This model also features a high instep and, being a pull on boot, works well with orthotics.


The Roskilde is a style that works well in all seasons.

Duckfeet shoes can be worn with or without socks in summer (and don't get smelly!) as the leather is a natural product that breathes. 

Duckfeet shoes are unisex, so anyone can wear this classic boot.

Fit Notes

The fit of the Roskilde is standard for Duckfeet shoes. Duckfeet are designed with space in mind, which is great for average to wide feet.

The toe box has ample room to allow toes to spread naturally and the boot progressively narrows towards the heel.

Narrow feet will work in this style too, although not as well due to a lack of laces or buckles, which usually hold a foot in place. 

These boots are great for high insteps.

Movement is to be expected in this style, and lessens as the leather wears in.

5 tips for breaking in your duckfeet

Roskilde are suitable for a half or full orthotic, so you can be supported all year round.

Size Notes

We stock the Roskilde in Euro sizes 36 - 47 (no half sizes).

It's standard for there to be some movement or spaces in the heel when you initially try on the shoes; this is caused by the leather being stiff, and will dissipate as they wear in.

It's important to ensure your toes are no more than lightly touching the end of your shoes when standing or walking.

To ensure you select the correct size, measure your feet by standing on a ruler. Compare your largest measurement against our size chart here for a guide to your Duckfeet size.

If your measurement matches the maximum length of a size, choose the next size up.

Duckfeet Roskilde comes in Brown, Cocoa, Slate, Black, Cocoa/Red, and Slate/Red.
