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
The appearance and the quality of the materials was "as advertised" but the sizing chart didn't work, even though I went up one size as was recommended . The Shoe was too short and too narrow ... The sizing chart said if length fell over one size, go up to the next size... I did this exactly and still got a shoe that was too small for my feet.

The Founder is a nice looking shoe with good comfort. It does run narrow by the base of your toes. I’ve only wore them a few times so I’m hoping that they will stretch out over time.

These shoes are awesome. They are very nice looking for one. They are also quite possibly the most comfortable pair of shoes I’ve ever owned. I look forward to wearing them, and I enjoy walking in them. I typically wear a 9.5, and although the 9.5 did fit, I decided to go with a size 9, which fit well too.

Overall Review
I wore these several times for short periods, then wore them to walk several blocks to dinner. Got pain and rubbing in the heels that I thought was going to blister. Fortunately did not develop blisters, but after a 20 min walk, I could not get these shoes off fast enough. Hopefully they will break in with time, but definitely not what I expected.

These shoes came recomended from a medical director so I thought I would give them a try. Just like ol doc said about his feet straightening out from walking pigeon toed, I now walk straight! Feet don't hurt until I wear other shoes now. They are worth the investment! Getcha some of that!!!
