ANATOMY OF A
GREAT WALKING SHOE
Vibram® custom-made Morflex® sole: Hubbards can be easily resoled with brand new original soles whenever needed. Hubbards are 30% lighter weight than many shoes of this type. Vibram Morflex provides terrific shock absorption and will put some spring in your stride.
Fully glove leather-lined all the way to the toe. Our linings are 'hung' inside the shoe rather than glued, for superior breathability.
Triple-density Hubbard insoles feature memory foam for forefoot cushioning. Our insoles are built with vegetable-tanned leather top layers that provide a 'silky' feel and wick perspiration away. Insoles are easily removeable if you wish to use your own orthotics.
The Padded Collar
A hidden padded collar means no hard points where the shoe contacts the foot.
Leather-lined and softly-padded tongue evenly distributes lace tension across the instep.
Soft leather uppers in smooth or nubuck finishes.
Strong stitch-down construction provides stability and durability.
The rocker profile sole design means less work for your feet. By 'rolling' your foot forward, the rocker reduces the foot’s need to flex the shoe as much and makes Hubbards much less tiring to wear.
The lightweight Kevlar shank allows for sturdy arch support.
Construction designed for ease of resoling with new Vibram® soles.
Fiber-reinforced heel counter and a cupped heel insole provide lateral heel support.
"I've now rugged road tested my Hubbards and have the evidence to crown them as most comfortable shoes on the planet. I've worn them for eight 14-hour straight days at three different conferences in three different cities, my feet are as comfortable in these shoes on the last day as they were in the first few minutes I put them on."
"These shoes are great!! I could not believe the "feel good" feeling of these shoes.
"These are amazing shoes. Perfect fit and look great too. When shoes feel like no shoes or slippers, then the ultimate is achieved!! "
"My husband absolutely loves them and says they are the most comfortable shoes he has ever owned. That is saying a lot, because he has long had trouble with his feet."
"I actually look forward to wearing my Hubbards. So comfortable! Love to give them as a gift."
"They are the most comfortable shoes I own, they look great, and I've worn them almost every day since I got them. Thank you!"
This is what you foot will call ’Home Sweet Home’. Silky, smooth soft leather lining from heel to toe and with extra padding in all the right places, Samuel Hubbard shoes are kind to your feet.
Triple density, removable insoles feature memory and a vegetable tanned leather top. We provide room in our last for any other type of orthotic you might choose to insert. The Hubbard insole has been enthusiastically received and gives the shoes superb comfort from day one.
Soles By Vibram
We love the Italian made Vibram soles. They provide terrific rebound with every step and are ideal for people needing (or choosing) to stand for most of the day. Hubbard shoes are 1/3 lighter than many other types of everyday walking shoes.
In 1930, Samuel J. Katz, my grandfather, began the Hubbard Shoe Company, a small children’s shoe factory in Rochester, New Hampshire.
