SIZE GUIDE

Story

Freedom First offers a fresh take on the loafer. Our Freedom collection features a rare and precise Italian shoemaking technique known as  "sacchetto" (translates to "little bag"). It results in fewer seams, a socklike fit with a noticeable arch, and a silky smooth lining. You’ll never need to worry about replacing the insole, an exciting element of this legendary construction design. With invisible, but powerful arch support, you will be ready to pursue your next adventure in comfort and style. It's unlike any traditional shoe you've ever worn. With exquisite leathers from Europe and Hubbard styling details, you'll find yourself slipping on this shoe before any others. Maybe that's why we called it Freedom First.

Our Freedom collection gives you the freedom of movement, the freedom of comfort, the freedom of style. With the First Amendment on every sole, it also reminds us of our most important freedoms. We've partnered with News Literacy Project to bring instructional materials to middle and high school classrooms that help teach kids how to be critical consumers of news.

These great casual slip ons are so well made and very comfortable. I agree wholeheartedly with the reviewer who commented that she likes the way these felt on her feet. I am extremely pleased with my purchase!

Overall Review
Great casual shoe. Depending on the manufacturer, I can wear a size 8, 8.5, or 39. I ordered the 8.5 (based on other reviews), and the shoes fit perfectly. I can wear think socks or sock liners comfortably. The shoe is not too wide for my narrow foot. The blue color is a nice dark rich shade. The arch support was quite pronounced. It will take some time to get used to it. I found the shoes to be a little stiff and will need to break them in before wearing for a long period of time. Overall, pleased with my purchase.

This is my second pair of Freedom shoes, having purchased the loafer after loving the oxford. My only complaint is SH doesn't (yet) make boots with the same sole/insole.

Overall Review
I ordered 2 sizes and expected, really, that neither would work. Amazed that the shoe was true to my size (8) and comfortable out of the box. I actually wore them the first day, right out of the box, on a business trip and they felt (and looked) great. I ended up ordering a second one in another color!

Overall Review
Since I usually wear an 11 1/2, I was worried that these shoes would not fit. They were just perfect. I wish the blue was a little less dark, but they will work for me. I got nothing but compliments on them. I was able to wear them without any problems on a day with a LOT of walking on cement floors. They were great.

Very comfortable from the start with excellent arch support. Bought taupe which, in reality, does not really match the color shown on the website. Really like the shoes and glad I have them.
