SIZE GUIDE

Story

What do you get when you cross a gorgeous, soft, pebble-grain leather derby with a sole and an insole system that’s taken more than a billion steps around the planet? That’s right, the world’s most comfortable dress shoe.

What is pebble grain? As the story goes, an apparently disorganized tanner in Scotland retrieved a piece of leather that was lying forever in a corner on a pebbled floor. The pattern of the pebbles had pressed into the leather and created a distinctive look. Thus was born “Scotch” or “pebble” grain.

Whether you’re walking on the drizzly cliffs of The Quiraing or making it rain in the boardroom, this new Scotch spin on a classic has got you covered.

Sizing

The Highlander 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 Highlander fits a little narrower in the toe box. Click here to see which Dress Shoes come in wide widths.

As another customer, I have been an AE customer. These shoes are great, but tend to be slightly tight. I found the pebble grain to be very attractive.

Wow, they look great! When order first arrived, the shoebox was correctly marked Highlander but contents were a pair of loafers. Called Customer Service and the correct pair arrived the next day. UPS is supposed to pick up loafers to return, but they haven't shown up yet. I hope I don't get double charged. A few years ago I bought a pair of the initial offering of black oxfords (Founder?) in 11 M and toe box pinched. This time I order 11 W and toes feel OK but the rest of the shoe is a bit loose. I can live with that by wearing thick socks. I had no problem with the tongue (as one reviewer complained about). Side rim under the ankle bone IS a bit stiff, but hey! shoes need a little breaking in! However, the hard Vibram sole is NOT comfortable. The slightly padded insole doesn't begin to make up for the hardness of the Vibram. I hope Hubbard someday finds something softer for the outsole. All in all, I'll keep them. They look terrific. But they look better than they feel. I won't buy another pair of Hubbards.

I've been an AE customer for years, but decided to give Hubbard a try. Without a doubt the most comfortable dress shoes I've ever worn. I will continue to buy the Hubbard brand.

The shoe is very comfortable for all day wearing and fits in great with business casual, even the dressy side of business casual (I'm wearing wool slacks and dress shirt with them today). Not quite dressy enough for a suit though. The shoes seem to be very well made and I expect will last a long time. The customer service team is fantastic. I had an issue with my the insole squeaking and cust. serv. rep swapped my shoes. The replacements are perfect and silent when I walk.

Overall Review
I'm 76 years old and looking for my last hurrah in shoes. Wanting a pair of shoes that were something "out of the box," I came across the Samuel Hubbard website by chance. Thought the shoes were different, went to reviews that were rated mostly excellent, and boy, were they right! I have worn Florsheim Royal Imperial, Johnston and Murphy Bostonian, just to name a few. Your feet change during your lifetime, and I needed something to compensate for that change. So, I took a chance and bought the Highlander. The ability to resole and refurbish was an added incentive to purchase. Upon receiving them, I thought they were beautiful. The workmanship was top-notch. For me the telltale sign was how they fit. I've used a shoehorn all my life. My feet slipped right into the shoes, and it was like my feet were slipping into a "glove." I walked in them and thought, this is the best my feet have felt in decades. Because of this shoe, I turned right around and purchased a pair of the Hubbard Free, plus some accessories. As of this moment, I am a BIG fan. Thank you for making something I cannot only be proud of but can enjoy wearing for the rest of my life.

I ordered the Highlander shoes for my husband and he was reluctant to try them on saying that they probably would not fit. He was shocked when he put his foot into the first one and then the second. He wore them to work in Manhattan the next day and said they were like wearing his favorite pair of sneakers. They are stylish shoes with excellent support. Thank you!

I had given up on wearing dress shoes. Old fractures, pronation, and wide feet. The shoes I could find in 4E looked like Frankenstein’s.

Now I can dress up again and my shoes feel like slippers and look like fine dress shoes

I'm not sure if I have ever received better service when purchasing a product, but I am sure I have never found a better looking more comfortable shoe.
