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
Love the shoes but wish Hubbard would produce more styles in wide and extra wide. I really need XW but had to buy a half size larger in wide in order to have the wide fit

My third pair - like them a lot. This last time had to return because of a packaging defect. On one shoe the tissue paper had an adhesive and was stuck under the tongue which would not completely come off and made the shoe uncomfortable. Customer service was quick to exchange.

Most comfortable out of the box shoes that I own. I only wish that they made the brown in the EW.

Overall Review
This is my 3rd pair but my first X-Wide. This one fits best but sadly there are only a few available styles in this width. The only issue I have observed is the wear on the Vibram sole, which shocked me. I never wear shoes more than once per week and I do little outdoor walking, so when I noticed obvious wear of the soles (ball of my feet area) I was not happy.

I've never seen nor worn a more supportive, comfortable or
better looking or better fitting pair of shoes. It was through the help of Michele Gwin of your staff that i was introduced to the Founder.
I have already thanked her, but you should be aware of what a fine
representative she is of your products.
