*If you already wear a shoe from our Dress Collection these may feel slightly roomier in the toe box.

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.

Great looking shoe,fits just right in the toe box. I found the shoes very supportive but not much cushion just behind the toes. I hope after a break in period they will become more comfortable.

I've lost track of how many pairs of Hubbard shoes that I've purchased in the last 18 months . . . at least 6 different pairs. Hubbards have been a Godsend. I broke my heel two years ago and was on a quest to find comfortable shoes until I discovered Hubbards. You're the best!

I have found my glass slipper! This is my second pair of SH shoes and I am amazed by these work of art shoes on my feet. They are light yet they grip the ground and keep you steady on your path. These SH shoes are well balanced with extreme comfort. I'm able to briskly walk and stop and turn without slipping or sliding. The shoe itself is sleek and smart looking! I recommend everyone to try a pair of Hubbard Free Samuel Hubbard shoes! You won't regret it!

Overall Review
This is my first review. I decided to do it because i am so impressed with this shoe. I am an executive in a small company. I injured my back many years ago in a bicycling accident and cannot sit for long periods. Since i have a desk job, that is a problem. So I bought a standing desk to relieve the back pain. Now, I am on my feet all day, literally. I own five pairs of Samuel Hubbards of all different styles and types, because they are the only shoes that i can wear all day without my feet hurting at the end of the day. Not only are they comfortable on my feet, but I have fewer knee, hip and back problems now that I wear them. I have never experienced anything like it. These shoes have changed my life. Beyond the functional aspects of the shoes, I think they are beautiful and I can wear one of the styles I have in almost any occasion. The Hubbard Frees are great for work and casual wear. Thanks folks. The older Hubbards I own have worn very well and i expect to have them all for many year. They are not cheap, but a lot cheaper than physical therapy....and worth every penny.

Overall Review
I had seen advertisements for Samuel Hubbard shoes for many years in the NY Times. When I discovered that many of the styles were available in wide widths, I ordered my first pair. They have turned out to be very comfortable. They look as if they well be able to withstand the inclement weather in Michigan, where I live.

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!
