For us, design without compromise also means quality without compromise. 52 complex steps of real handcraft - we offer you the very best quality. That is why every single shoe by MONACO DUCKS is handcrafted.
All of our shoes are made in Italy and not just because we love pasta and the Italian way of life! But primarily because we were able to find the best shoemakers in the world there: in the Italian region of “Le Marche” in a traditional, family-run factory that has been developing and producing shoes for Formula 1 racing drivers for many years.
Craftsmanship, knowledge of the anatomy of the foot and the processing of our special DUCKS Wool are very important to us. This design and development know-how is reflected in each of our models - not least due to the fact that our manufacture originally came from extreme sports. Because the demands on quality and resilience cannot be higher than in motorsport.
Every element of our shoes is handcrafted. The loden and leather are carefully selected to ensure you the highest quality.
The lasts form the basis for every pair of shoes. They replicate the foot, take size and shoe model into account and are jointly responsible for wearing comfort. Every shoe, including ours, consists of two essential parts, the upper part (shaft) and the bottom (sole).
The manufacturing process for all of our shoes begins with the production of a prototype for each new model, which we thoroughly test as a team. This initial design and development phase is essential to ensure that the fit and the whole shoe are perfect when they leave our factory.
Clicking is the first production stage in which the upper material of the shoe is cut. The name "Clicking" is derived from the "click" sound that is made when the blade is removed from the leather after cutting around the pattern.
In the next production step, the fine details of our shoes are created, which make each style individual. This includes punching holes and sewing the cut shaft parts together.
The process of pinching is the moment the shoe begins to take shape. The upper is stretched over the last with pliers, shaped and connected to the sole (pinched) and finally sewn.
Quality without compromise. Design without compromise.
