SIZE GUIDE

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.

Sizing

Our Hubbard Free was designed to give you a generous fit with plenty of room for your toes. 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 Active Outdoor collection, you'll wear the same size in the Free.
*If you already wear a shoe from our Dress Collection these may feel slightly roomier in the toe box.

Overall Review
As is always the shoes were beautifully made. They were, however, a bit too large to wear and the tongue on the left shoe buckled when the shoes were laced up, rather than lying evenly over the foot.

Overall Review
The shoes are beautiful and fit well. I'm concerned, though, that they may not retain their new look. I thought they were hard leather, but they're a kind of suede and pick up dust, etc. easily. So far -- just a week -- they clean up okay, but I worry how they'll look over time.

Overall Review
I wore these shoes to an event and had several people ask me what kind of shoe they were. People liked them and took notice because they aren't what you see everyday. I like that. I bought the Tan Waxhide Leather & White sole version. Highly recommend this shoe.

Overall Review
Well made, sole is comfortable. The medium width was a little wider for me. Probably should have gotten the narrow fit. A thicker sock helps.

Overall Review
Too tight and low quality. I did not like the finish and fit.
It is a crappy construction and very uncomfortable.
I don't think the wider fit or one more size will correct the feeling of these shoes.
I was expecting a better quality for the price.

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!
