SIZE GUIDE

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.

Sizing

The Founder has a sleek, sophisticated look and fit. If this is your first pair of Hubbards, you'll likely find them true to size.

*If you already wear a shoe from our Casual or Outdoor collection, you may find that the Founder fits a little narrower in the toe box. Click here to see which Dress Shoes come in wide widths.
*If you already wear a shoe from our Dress Collection these will fit the same.

This is my first pair of Hubbard shoes! I They are a perfect fit now that I got a wide sized show. They are most comfortable and allow me to get through the day without my feet aching. Looking forward to other styles soon.

Out of the box the shoe felt as if I'd had it for several years, comfortable and stayed that way through out a long day. From a styling standpoint is looks super with a suit and completes the look for any big meeting.

Overall Review
These were not my first pair of shoes from Samuel Hubbard & like the previous shoes they are an excellent choice. I wear a 14W and this size is hard to find in a quality shoe. Great fit and very good quality. My only quibble (and it's a minor one) is that the"factory" laces on the shoe will not stay tied. I've replaced the laces, problem now solved.

Overall Review
I have a pair of Market Caps that I found at Nordstrom Rack for >50% off price, so I have some history with Hubbard. The shoes arrived 3 days ago and I have worn them in the house for a total of ~15 minutes. They are very tight and stiff but I expect they will break in OK. Only reason I purchased was a promotional discount. In my view these should be comfortable shoes, definitely not stylish.
