In this weeks’ Duckfeet Shoe Review we’re taking at look at one of our easiest styles, the pull on Roskilde boots.
Roskilde is great for both men and women, and offers an easy slip in entry to the shoe.
Duckfeet ‘Roskilde’ are pull on boots made from leather, with crepe rubber soles. They are secured with elastics on either side to allow for easy entry. We use a strong cow hide leather that softens with wear, and being a natural product, allows for breathability.
Roskilde is a good trans-seasonal style that works well in all seasons. Being a pull on boot, this style works well with orthotics, and people with high insteps.
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 Roskilde is standard for Duckfeet shoes. Duckfeet are designed with space in mind, which is great for average to wide feet.
These unisex leather shoes are great for high insteps or average to wider feet. Narrow feet will work in this style too, although not as well due to a lack of laces or buckles, which usually hold a foot in place.
Movement is to be expected in this style, and lessens as the leather wears in.
Roskilde are suitable for a half or full orthotic, so you can be supported all year round.
Duckfeet Roskilde Boots come in sizes 36 – 48 European.
It is standard for there to be some movement or spaces in the heel 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.
