Samuel Hubbard

Samuel Hubbard Hubbard Free Nubuck (+colors)

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 performance elements of the Hubbard Free are inspired by athletic shoes, but the look is a classic leather shoe.

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.

  • Full glove-leather lining delivers buttery soft feel and eliminates pressure points.
  • Custom Vibram® soles put a spring in your stride and provide all day support.
  • Lightweight Kevlar® shank provides sturdy arch support.
  • Triple-Density memory foam insole, topped in silky smooth leather. Easily removed if you wish to use your own orthotics or need to replace. See our replacement insoles.
  • Easily resoled for years of comfort. See our Resole Program.
  • Designed in Mill Valley, CA. Handcrafted in Portugal.

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.

Bruce Katz, founder and CEO, is a third generation shoemaker who is following in the tradition of his grandfather who started the original Hubbard Shoe Company in 1930 in Rochester, New Hampshire. Hubbard built a reputation for fine footwear where fit, comfort, and durability were paramount. When domestic manufacturing became unviable in the early 70’s, the family re-invented their business with the creation of Rockport Shoes, which were made in factories all over the world. Samuel Hubbard Shoe is a new family enterprise created in 2012 with the mission of creating the most comfortable walking shoes for work and for weekends.

At Samuel Hubbard, we design shoes where comfort and craftsmanship are never compromised. Being just “good enough” is not good enough for us. If there is a better method, if there are better materials, then that is what we choose. We strive to honor the past and what we have learned as shoemakers since 1930. Bruce Katz’s father Saul often said, “We make friends with our shoes, one pair at a time.”

Our company is based in Mill Valley, California on the side of Mount Tamalpais. The first collection is produced by a factory on another hillside, in the north of Portugal.
