Story

This classic 5 eyelet oxford has an air of authority and complements a fine pair of dress slacks or your favorite tailored blue jeans.

The genuine leather welting, the waxed laces and the refined eyelets highlight the soft leather uppers that require no breaking in. We finish the shoes with a satin wax but you can also bring them up to a brilliant shine with your own favorite shoe polish.

The Founder is fully lined with cowhide glove leather and we don't use any glue between the uppers and the linings so that the shoe breathes naturally and the shoes conform to your foot.

The Founder comes with our triple density orthotic that uses Poron memory foam and a vegetable tanned leather covering which is healthier for your feet.

The combination of soft leathers and our Hubbard Vibram soles make walking in these shoes as comfortable as your favorite running shoes. For the man on the go or for long hours sitting these light and springy shoes are the perfect Go to Work shoe.

Overall Review
I have a pretty tough foot to fit. I have a very wide toe area but normal heel. I ordered the Wide width based on my measurements. The heel slid a little but it's gotten better. I definitely have to wear thinner socks or my little toe presses against the side which is rather uncomfortable after a while. With thin socks these are perfect. In the beginning I wondered if I should have bought the X-Wide, but I worried about the heel area being too big. I have only had these for two weeks, but they are very comfortable overall. I believe once they break in properly, they will be even better. I will be purchasing more soon.

How can anyone not love their Hubbards,
Best shoes, best fit, best service period.
Only an uninformed person would not beg to have Hubbards on their feet. Once the uninformed become knowledgeable the loyalists and previously shod should become societal leaders. Hubbard wearer for president.

This is my second pair of Samuel Hubbards and these fit like a glove right out of the box. No break in period just comfort and great style right from the start. I travel 25 miles to the nearest store that carries SH well worth the drive .. Mo other shoes fit and look as good....

This is my second pair of Hubbard shoes. The Founder is the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn. I have a wide foot. No other shoe has ever accommodated my foot like Hubbard. I am a fan for life.
