Story

We call this shoe the Hubbard Free not because we give them away but because of how they make you feel when wearing them.

These shoes are designed for the active lifestyle. Superb comfort is achieved by the soft upper leathers, the glove-leather linings, the light and springy Vibram soles and the memory-foam cushioned insoles which many consider the best in the shoe industry.

The one-piece vamp (front part of the shoe) means there are no seams in the critical points of contact with your feet. The ankle area is designed with what we call ‘a hidden padded collar’. This creates a very soft point of contact with the ankle without the bulky, padded look of a running shoe.

The performance elements of the Hubbard Free are inspired by athletic shoes, but the look is a classic leather shoe.

Overall Review
I have only worn these shoes twice, and they are not comfortable. Since I cannot return them because they have been worn, I am hoping they will break in after being worn some more. I normally wear boat shoes in this same size, and they fit fine and are very comfortable. The Hubbard Free seems slightly shorter, and has a higher profile.

On the plus side, the shoes look exactly as pictured and they appear to be well made.

I had back surgery in 2010, resulting in nerve damage. This is the first show I have been able to wear all day, every day since the surgery. Gives great support for my core muscles and spine.

Overall Review
These are the most expensive shoes that I have ever purchased but they are also the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I am on my feet on a concrete floor all day and I usually switch to my Birkenstocks when I get home. These new shoes were so comfortable that I kept them on all evening. I'll be ordering several more pair soon.

This is my 5th pair of Hubbard and each fits like a pair of slippers. I don't even feel like I have shoes on.

My third pair of Hubbies and this one I can wear all day. True to size and width, it provides room to add an orthotic or to remove the insole. Great quality and versatile style!

Overall Review
Shoe is tight across the top because of my high instep. The width is fine even a little too wide. The appearance of the rounded toe is kind of clunky and definitely makes the shoe look more casual than I thought it would be.

Overall Review
I found SH because they looked cool, I ordered a pair and they were. Subsequently I ordered several more pair in other colors. I had an issue with a pair and SH handled it with aplomb, I was hooked. SH puts out an outstanding product and their service is equal. Are they pricey? Sure are they worth it? Absolutely! And if you like attention like I do, well then you've found the perfect conservation starter, Samual Hubbard. They are one of a kind.

This is my first pair of Samuel Hubbard shoes and I was worried that the size I ordered would not fit properly(12 wide). I was pleasantly surprised that they fit perfect and are very comfortable. I havent worn them a lot yet but I plan to. I also plan on buying more.

Great quality, hard to find locally to size so I relied on the printed guide -- which took three tried mailing back and forth until I thought the size was small enough. Though if you have a narrow heel and a wider forefoot, as I do, it's a bit tough to get the right fit.

Product Questions

How wide is your wide width in this shoe? 06.01.18
Hi there! Our Wide width is the equivalent to an EE and our Medium width is the equivalent to a D.
Are these shoes no slip for restaurant workers? 06.14.18
Unfortunately, our shoes are not rated for slip resistance, and don't have the proper micro-channel tread needed for slip resistance on wet or greasy surfaces. So, though we cannot in good conscience recommend these for service industry work, we can definitely say that our shoes are great for around town, casual comfort. Keep us in mind when you're looking for your next favorite shoe.
Are any of your shoes available in size 15EE? Rockport 15 wide is what I have now. Fit is good. Ray 06.26.18
Hello. Thank you for your inquiry. At this time we do not offer any styles in a 15EE. We recently started offering a size 15 in select styles and colors, however, in a D width only. The Hubbard Free is made on a wider shoe last than our dress shoes. You certainly could give them a try and return if they don't work well for you. We offer free returns. We offer the Hubbard Free in size 15D in brown nubuck and navy nubuck.
