Sjaelland is our take on the classic desert boot, and was the first style we designed over 40 years ago. Today, it is one of our most popular styles due to its simple yet timeless design. Sjaelland is also a great choice for those with a higher instep and/or a broader foot.
Duckfeet in Denmark have been making shoes by hand for over forty years. Duckfeet are simple and functional, typical of mid-20th century Danish design. Duckfeet’s foot-formed design allows room for the toes to spread naturally as you walk, and for air to reach the feet. Leather midsoles and uppers breathe and transport moisture away from the foot. We use leather because it’s strong and long-lasting, but also flexible – allowing the shoe to move with and mould to your individual foot shape.
No two pairs of Duckfeet are exactly alike. Every pair of shoes is treated individually during production, the natural tanning and processing by hand allows for subtle variations in the leather. These variations are highlighted by the particular way you wear them, which imbues each shoe with personality, your story, for your life. Sjaelland features premium full grain, double stitched and reinforced 100% leather uppers, insole, and leather midsole.
Our non-toxic, vegetable tanned leather is manufactured according to strict environmental standards. It is drum dyed using high quality, non-toxic dyes and specially treated to be water and dirt repellant. Using traditional European Veldtschoen construction the upper is built up by hand over a flat last then the midsole is double stitched to our 100% natural crepe rubber outsole.
Every pair of Duckfeet comes into contact with many experienced hands before they are placed in their box and fitted to your feet.
