Duckfeet

Duckfeet's products are designed and produced based on ideas of simplicity and honesty - a pair of Duckfeet doesn't pretend to be something they are not. The first models designed and produced were Jylland and Sjælland, and both are still produced and sold today without any changes to design. In fact, the pattern for all of their shoes have been left unchanged since 1975 when the first pair of Duckfeet saw the light of day.

In the mid-1970s, Sønderjylland was the stronghold of shoe production in Denmark. The women sat at home sowing shafts that were then later assembled at factories, so it came natural to Inga and Claus to start their shoe production in Skærbæk, Denmark.

Foot-shaped shoes and full-grain leather were the trend of the time, which is why it was an obvious decision for them to follow that direction. Duckfeet earned great success throughout the 1970s and early 1980s in Denmark, and also in Germany, where the foot-shaped style of shoes quickly came to be called Entenschuhe.

As time passed, the production of Duckfeet moved from Denmark to Poland with its long tradition in shoe crafts, and they have since had an amazing and very close collaboration with their factory.

The company was founded in 1975 by the Wiechmann family in Sønderjylland - the Southern part of of mainland Denmark - and has since been a small family-run company with a lot of personality.
