Quality is the heart of Duckfeet shoes.
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, and for air to reach the feet. Leather midsoles and uppers give the skin space to breathe and naturally transports moisture away from the foot.
We use leather because it’s strong and long-lasting, but also flexible – allowing the shoe to mould to your foot. The midsole in all models is vegetable tanned. The sole is all-natural crepe rubber, which is shock-absorbing and friendly to your body.
Our shoes are manufactured in the traditional way. The shoe is built up by hand over a last, then the sole is then stitched firmly to the shaft. Every pair of Duckfeet comes into contact with many experienced hands before they are put in the box, and fitted to your feet. You can read more about our production process here.
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, a story, a life.

Welcome to The County of Bourke. We are the licensed importer and distributor of Duckfeet for Australia and New Zealand.
We first saw Duckfeet on a friends' feet around eight years ago. Everything about these shoes caught our attention; the quality, the production process, the values of the company, and the design.
We set up shop in Fitzroy seven years ago and started importing the Duckfeet range. Initially, a window on Gertrude Street directed customers to our 'hidden' shop, but over the years we've grown steadily busier. We're still here, in an old shoe polish factory, and while our store has evolved over the years, the quality and simplicity of Duckfeet remains the same.
You can find us at the REAR of 169 Fitzroy St, Fitzroy VIC 3065. We are open Thursday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm, and we love visitors.
