Samuel Hubbard – Shoes Good For Your Sole

Nothing ruins the excitement of getting a new pair of shoes quicker than blisters and achy arches—especially if marching up mountains or pounding some pavement were on the agenda.

Thankfully, Samuel Hubbard understands the importance of looking after your feet, while still looking good, of course.

The brand’s story started in 1930 with Samuel Katz, and continued with his son, Bruce, who ran the business until he sadly passed away in 2022. Today, Samuel Hubbard continues to honor the Katz family legacy, making classic, comfortable, and quality footwear engineered for utmost comfort during your everyday adventures.

Key Takeaways

Whether you’re on the lookout for new walking boots or smart sneakers for the 9-5, Samuel Hubbard offers a selection of shoes (in various fits) bursting with feet-pleasing features such as memory foam insoles, riveted eyelets, and frictionless linings.

Our Favorites

Best Sneakers: Sunset Sneakers

A personal favorite that I’ve added to my own collection, the Sunset is the ultimate everyday sneaker, looking just as good with a hoodie and jeans as it does with tailored pants and an Oxford shirt.

Striking the perfect balance between smart and sporty, it’s made from textured leather with suede accents and a lightweight EVA sole that softens every step. Inside you’ll find thermo-regulating microfiber lining and a flexible footbed that’s a godsend if you’re on your feet all day.

Best Lightweight: Featherlight Olema Sport

I’m not exactly sure how they’ve done it, but Samuel Hubbard has managed to cram all of its famous features into these sneakers while keeping them ultra-light. So light, in fact, you hardly know you’re wearing them.

Made from nubuck that’s designed to flex with your feet, they come with a shock-absorbing outsole, heel cushioning, leather lining, and triple-density insoles with arch support. They’re excellent for long walks (especially in the summer) but you’ll want to wear them wherever you go.

Best Loafers: Tailored Traveler

Quick to slip on, easy to style, and effortlessly cool, the Tailored Traveler loafers will take you from country weddings to city breaks without a blister in sight.

They’ve been made from super soft leather, with a moisture-absorbing lining that allows your feet to breathe, and finished with a custom EVA sole that’s flexible and bouncy. You can choose from four colors and both a medium and wide fit shape.

Best Boots: Uptown Maverick

Boots can be notoriously tricky to break in, but not this pair. Soft inside and out, the Uptown Maverick is lightweight with excellent arch support, triple-density insoles, and side zippers that make them super easy to put on.

They’re also part of the brand’s Resole Program which sees them partner with Tony’s Shoe Service to resole and refurbish them once they’ve seen better days. As well as replacing the soles, Tony’s will give them a clean and provide new insoles and laces for an additional fee.

Best Walking: Performance Walker

The Performance Walker is designed to conquer all sorts of terrain, from the urban jungle to muddy fields. Three years in the making, they have everything you need from an outdoor shoe: Water-resistance, arch support, lateral stability, and excellent grip. They even come with a reflective heel patch that’ll keep you safe at night.

Best Shoe Cleaner: Shoe Care Kit

Housed in a handy box, it comes with two brushes, a cloth, leather cream, protector spray, and sole cleaner. If you’re in need of any help with using each product, just reach out to their customer service team.
