Responsibility

At Duckfeet USA, we know every step we take matters— down to the shoes in our closet and the hands that make them.

No Steps Wasted

Ever since 1975, Duckfeet has poured their heart into creating handcrafted footwear that’s responsible & timeless. Every detail counts in that endeavor—from the carefully chosen materials, the skilled labor that goes into crafting them, and even the way they’re worn.

So, the goal isn’t just to make great shoes; it’s to do it in a way that leaves a positive impact on people and the planet—with responsibility at the core. And we’re not doing this alone! We’re so glad you’re here as we collectively strive to make a difference, and together form a compassionate community that embraces thoughtful living and responsible choices.

Behind the Seams

Duckfeet shoes have been lovingly crafted in the same European factories for the last 20 years. These factories stand as a testament to the rich history of traditional European shoe making, which has become less frequent in today’s global landscape.

From human hands to your feet

We take immense pride in knowing that the steps we take go beyond our shoes; they represent heritage, innovation, and the collective efforts of people coming together. With every step, Duckfeet reflect a history that’s been thoughtfully and responsibly woven into every stitch by passionate hands.

Wear in

Crafted to tell your story, each pair reflects your unique lifestyle. Wear them in and not out.

Repair

Keep your Duckfeet going. When your soles bite the dust and your stitches need tending, giving your shoes a second life is a cinch.

Re-love

Longer lasting product → minimized environmental impact → happy Duckfeet = happy feet.

REPAIR MORE, WASTE LESS

At Duckfeet, we celebrate the notion that well-made products improve with age, and there’s beauty in care & repair. That’s why we’re proud to offer a resoling service for those well-loved pairs, keeping them out of landfills and on your feet for more of your journey. While all things eventually meet their end, you’ll be able to pass on your beloved footwear knowing you’ve enjoyed the most life out of them.
