In this weeks' Duckfeet Shoe Review we're taking at look at our faithful Sjaelland boots. One of our favourites, Sjaelland is your all-year round, everyday boot that ticks all the boxes.
Duckfeet 'Sjaelland' are lace up boots made from leather, with crepe rubber soles.
They are secured with laces which means as they soften, you can tighten them to better fit your foot. We use a strong cow hide leather that softens with wear, and being a natural product, allows for breathability.
Sjaelland is a good trans-seasonal style that works well in all seasons.
Duckfeet shoes can also be worn with no socks in Summer, and do not get smelly, as the leather is a natural product that breathes.
Duckfeet shoes are unisex, so anyone can wear these classic boots.
The fit of Sjaelland is standard for Duckfeet shoes. Duckfeet are designed with space in mind, which is great for average to wide feet.
Sjaelland work for all foot types, although we recommend narrower toes add an insole to their order, to help with a little extra space. Sjaelland are a great travelling shoe as they can be worn with everything, and are well secured with a lace.
Movement is to be expected in this style, and lessens as the leather wears in.
Sjaelland are suitable for a half or full orthotic, so you can be supported all year round.
Duckfeet Sjaelland Boots come in sizes 35 - 50 European.
It is standard for there to be some movement or space in the heel and toe 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 do not touch 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.
