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.

I have peripheral artery disease, hammer toes, and swelling of my right foot. The left leg has been amputated due to pad. The Hubbard free is the only shoe that I can wear that has enough room for my toes.

Overall Review
This is my second pair of these same shoes. They are supremely comfortable. I ordered direct from Hubbard over the phone because I had trouble navigating the website; certain fields did not register what I typed and I could not complete the order. The telephone experience was easy, fast and I received the delivery with a week (7 days!) Love them. I will try a different pair soon.

This is my second pair of Hubbard Free shoes and I believe my 5th pair of Hubbard overall. While I have never been disappointed with any of them, I particularly love the Free shoe.

Overall Review
This is now my fourth pair of SH shoes. I have 62 year old feet that need TLC and Hubbard Free shoes are cool looking AND unbelievably comfortable. From the first moment I tried them on I knew they were winners. You'll think so too.
Thank you, Samuel Hubbard.

This is my third pair, all Nubuck, within the last 2 years/. This model is light but has supportive sole. I especially like the the roomy toe box. Of course the variety of colors is also plus. I have not found a more comfortable shoe. I give the Free 5 stars.

Overall Review
This makes six pair of Hubbard’s in my closet. I think that speaks for itself. I bought my first pair from a half page ad that I saw in the New York Times. There was but one style shoe available and as I recall it was a cap toe in black. At my age, comfort is a must and I have never been disappointed.

Overall Review
A bit pricey, but oh my the comfort! This is my fourth pair of Hubbard’s and second pair of Hubbard Free’s. I’m guessing the quality is built in like the accurate sizing. With the traditional styling of their various lines, I’m looking forward to wearing Hubbard’s for years to come.

Purchased the Hubbard Free a few weeks and ago and have found them to be very comfortable to wear. It's nice to see the high quality leather - both inside and out. Have walked a good deal in them so far and find they they do not make my feet hurt.

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!
