The Samuel Hubbard, Hubbard Free oxford. They call this shoe the Hubbard Free not because they 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 means thare 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.
