Comfort engineering is at the heart of how we design and build Samuel Hubbard shoes.

We begin by taking the time to develop perfect fitting lasts—the form a shoe is shaped around. Unlike many other shoe companies that rush new looks to market every six months, we give ourselves the time to refine every aspect of our shoes to achieve wonderful comfort.

In this pursuit, we are uncompromising in our choice of materials and construction. Being just "good enough" is not good enough. We offer shoes of the utmost quality. When there is a better method, we do it that way. When there is better leather or material, we use that.
