Overall Review
This is my second pair of Samuel Hubbard shoes. I made the switch to Hubbard after being a long time Allen Edmonds customer--I could not be happier with the change. Samuel Hubbard are the most comfortable and highest quality shoes I have owned. These shoes fit, and more importantly wear, so much better than Edmonds shoes ever did. Great quality and fit!

Overall Review
The shoe is comfortable, has a great sole for grip on a wet or slippery surfaces, and the appearance is appropriate for use in business situations.

I had a problem with my first pair (sole separation), and the place I bought them in NYC (Eneslow) gave me a hard time about it, but then Samuel Hubbard customer service intervened and solved the problem. They were great. In the future, I'll just buy directly from Samuel Hubbard. Great people and great shoes.

One other note, the regular shoe runs a little narrow, and I have a wide foot. Going up a size, which usually works for me, didn't work because the shoe was too big. So I was very happy when they released the Wide version which fits very well. For reference, the 13R was too narrow, the 14R was too big, but the 13W was just right.

Great for Colorado winters. I wish it had a brown/gray color option.

Overall Review
For now, this review is limited to my customer service experience, which was extraordinary. The shoes themselves look and feel great. However I had experienced some issues with the soles separating. I received especially prompt attention, a sincere apology, and was assured that the problem (which apparently was the adhesive uses on the soles) had been identified and addressed. So I have a new, replacement pair. Unless I experience a similar problem this time, I will follow this up with a review for the shoes, which I expect to be very positive.

The best feeling shoe that gives me comfort on the concrete floors in our manufacturing facility. They might have cost more then I wanted to spend but worth it!

One of the most comfortable and practical pair of shoes I have ever owned. Great in rainy weather or for everyday comfort. Good looking, well made, durable. I will definately come back to Samuel Hubbard for my next pair.

Toe box a bit tight so had to go to a wide in a half size smaller. It is going to be good. Fit is good and comfortable.

Overall Review
The sizing experience took a while to get right but now it is just right. The shoe runs a little tight if you prefer and need a larger toe box. I had to go to the wide width but I am very comfortable with the decision. It will allow for a winter sock and minimal break-in period. Let me add that the support staff were fantastic. Thanks to Danielle I got the size right. Thanks!
