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
Interesting story: I had a pair of these shoes in 10M and loved them. Then I needed prosthetics after 68 years of very flat feet, and the shoes were no longer comfortable. I tried Wide, and they were still not comfortable. So I returned them for a very quick exchange and tried extra-wide, which are good to go, so I'll be keeping them. And getting a pair in brown.

Received a pair and was not able to open them till I was on a business trip and found some scuff marks that I was not able to remove and sent them a message and they immediately sent me a new pair no question ask.

My husband has several different kinds of Samuel Hubbard shoes and he thinks everyone should wear nothing but this brand. He gave this pair to our son-in-law and he put the on when he opened the box and kept them on all day. Said they were the most comfortable shoes he's ever owned.

I meant to buy one pair of tan shoes, and one pair of black. Somehow I received two pairs of black and one pair of tan. Was charged for three pairs.
I'm keeping all three pairs.
These are the most comfortable "non ugly" (indeed quite handsome) dress shoes that I have ever owned

I purchased the shoes because they were comfortable. I was surprised at how many people noticed them and complimented me for my good taste.

These are the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. I don't even bother looking elsewhere for shoes. It's like walking on air.
