Wear and Care Guide

Duckfeet are stylish, reliable, and hard-wearing. Give them just a little bit of care to keep them in tip-top shape.


Caring for your leather 

Leather is skin, and skin needs care. We recommend that you apply a thin layer of leather conditioner or shoe cream at regular intervals. Don’t use too much at one time. It’s better to use a little less a bit more often. Let the shoe cream sit a few minutes and polish afterwards with a soft cloth. Use a shoehorn when you put your shoes on – they are easier to get on and the back will not be destroyed. Untie or unzip the shoes or boots completely when you remove them – so they are easier to pull off. It’s better for the shoes than trampling on them! If you care for your shoes regularly, you will enjoy them longer. Your shoes will be grateful for it.

If your shoes get wet 

Store your shoes in a dry and airy place. If your shoes become wet, fill them with crumpled newspaper and let them air-dry. When they are completely dried, you can again apply leather conditioner or shoe cream. Leather shoes should not be dried on a radiator – the leather becomes dried out and porous. If the leather gets water stains, take a cloth and make the whole shoe slightly damp. Treat the leather afterwards as described above. It is best to change your shoes daily. Give your Duckfeet a day’s rest, so they can release the foot’s moisture and dry thoroughly.

If your shoe get dirty

If the shoes get dirty, clean them with a damp cloth. Let the shoes dry thoroughly and treat the leather again with shoe cream or leather conditioner. Be attentive to edges and seams, which should also be treated to maintain the leather and protect your shoes against water.

Caring for crepe rubber 

Crepe rubber soles can become hard at low temperatures, but this can be avoided by storing the shoes out of direct sunlight at a temperature between 20-25C. If the soles become hard, you can place the shoes on a warm radiator, until the crepe rubber is soft again. Avoid contact with solvents. The rubber cannot tolerate it and can dissolve.
