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.

This is a very comfortable, sturdy, and stylish shoe. For our damp climate, the soles scrape well and thus don’t track stuff into the house. I had a “squeak” problem with one of the shoes, and Hubbard replaced the pair with next day shipping and free return. I’ll be a customer for a long time!

So glad that the 9 XW finally became available. Roomy in front, but not too wide at the heel. An excellent fit, and an excellent shoe. Very comfortable for walking long distances through airports etc. I also appreciate the willing attitude and helpful service by Hubbard staff. The XW shoe in the Hubbard Free is more roomy than some other Hubbard shoes in the XW size - I can’t wear the others.

This is my 3rd pair of Hubbards. Like the black and brown boots I wear often, these shoes will become a key part of my wardrobe. I work in a winery tasting room and often spend several hours on my feet. I'm sure these shoes will make that experience more comfortable. Thanks for such great quality and service.

I love these shoes and I basically wear them on weekends, so the first time i felt some wetness in the rain on my right toe I dismissed it, but over the year it happened twice more so I called that in and replacement was sent immediately. What a good company!

Overall Review
I got the brown model and over a year, they discolored badly in the front of the shoe. I contacted Hubbard and they sent me a new pair which also fit perfectly well. They also sent a tin of cordovan wax polish and told me to use it so it won't be discolored like my first pair were. Looking forward to a good relationship with these.

My first was a Brown Nubuck. I practically wear them every day as they are superbly comfortable!. This cordovan brown is my 2nd and I am thinking of acquiring a 3rd but am challenged by the many new and attractive styles. When my podiatrist saw the cordovans he said "Wow! that's sturdy and foot supporting plus!"

Everything about the shoes is excellent except its laces. They look big, ugly and cheap. They don't justice to the well-made shoes.

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.
How wide is the xtra-wide 10.24.18
Thank you for your inquiry. Our extra wide is a 4E width.
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.
What is the weight of this shoe? 07.11.18
Thank you for your inquiry. Each shoe weighs less than one pound - an average of 13oz - 15oz. They are 30% lighter than most shoes and oh so comfortable!
