Duckfeet are designed in Denmark and assembled in Poland from German Terracare® leather and an Italian crepe sole. All other materials are sourced within Europe. Peek inside the factory and learn more about the materials used in production in our production process blog post.
Duckfeet are soled with 100 % natural pale latex crepe rubber that offers durable shock absorption. The rubber grips well in most environments, but please always use caution on icy surfaces. Please visit Care for details on how to care for the outsoles. (You may notice a range of coloration on the sole as each pair is handcrafted and variations occur naturally.)
No, Duckfeet does not produce kids, childrens, or youth sizes.
No, Duckfeet does not make any vegan styles.
A quick wipe with a damp cloth or a small application of leather cream often does the trick. Please visit Care for more information.
Crepe rubber soles can become firm when stored at low temperatures. We recommend storing your Duckfeet in an environment between 66–76 °F. If the soles become hard, you can place the shoes inside for a period of time until the crepe rubber is soft again.
Do not leave in direct sunlight. Crepe will soften and become tacky.
Since the natural crepe is untreated, avoid contact with solvents because such substances may dissolve the rubber.
Duckfeet have a wide toe box and use European sizes. Please visit Fit Guide for more information and to determine your size or contact us that we might help guide you in the sizing process.
Winter models, like the Århus and Odense, are lined with 100% premium European sheep wool for added warmth and comfort. The soft wool offers cushioning and covers the interior top to bottom all the way to the toe. This lining is non‑removable.
We offer Wool Insoles that can be added to most Duckfeet models for extra warmth and cushioning.
Duckfeet have a neutral leather footbed without any inherent arch support. Because it’s leather, the footbed will form to the footprint of the wearer over time. If support is desired, the footbed is great for accommodating most insoles as there is no built in support to compete with an insert/insole. Note that the leather insole is not designed to be removed.
Most Duckfeet models are made with high quality full-grain leather. This leather is strong and durable and will feel stiff at first—don’t worry! Duckfeet break in faster than you’d expect. This break-in process is a hallmark of genuine leather. With a little bit of love, they will mold perfectly to your foot shape and movements ensuring your pair is truly unique. Leather cream can expedite the process as well as extend the life of your pair. For tips on breaking in your Duckfeet, visit our blog post on this topic.
All Duckfeet leathers are naturally water-resistant and will keep most moisture out. However, water stains can occur after heavy saturation. If you notice water stains, take a cloth and lightly damp the entire shoe; let dry completely. Leather cream may be applied to help increase water resistance and will also help keep them in tip-top shape.
All Duckfeet shoes are handmade and vegetable tanned to ensure quality and longevity. This means there can be slight variations in each product, making your pair of Duckfeet entirely unique. Additionally, computer screens may not always faithfully reproduce color depending on the technology and settings employed. Visit our Color Guide page for close-ups and descriptions of all the Duckfeet colors.
Duckfeet feature unisex sizing and a gender-neutral style that works for anyone.
Duckfeet Boot, Shoe, & Sandal boxes are made from recycled cardboard.
Duckfeet Boot & Shoe boxes use a recycled piece of scrap leather as the box handle. The leather handle color in no way reflects the color of the product in the box. The label should always be consulted for product color, as well as the product in the box itself.

Made to Order
Made to Order are those colorful shoes that we don't carry in stock regularly, and are specially built on demand.
In an effort to make the process more responsible, efficient, and quicker for you—we’ll be starting to rotate colors seasonally so they're more readily available with quicker shipping times.
Good news: some unique MTO colors will make their way into the regular core collection and be more readily available to you, while others will take a rest until an upcoming season.
Any MTO colors that are currently listed on a style's product page will be available to order up until Tuesday, September 5th. This will be our last MTO shipment for the time being!
MTO orders purchased by September 5th are expected to arrive by early November. You will receive shipping notification and tracking information when your unique pair is on its way to you!
