    Anyone have experience with Samuel Hubbard?

    I am considering buying Samuel Hubbard Highlander in pebble grain. https://www.samuelhubbard.com/highla...+Grain+Leather

    I believe this is an online company with occasional pop-up shops, so I can't judge their product in person. Although they get excellent reviews and I like the look of this particular style, I'm wondering if it might be a little clunky. I'm not particularly fond of the appearance of the sole, but everything else about the show looks good.

    Anyone have first-hand experience with this?

    I have no experience with this brand but their site claims that they use material and construction of the “utmost quality”. I have to question that as they make no reference to things like full grain leather or Goodyear welting. For the prince they charge I don’t think you can expect such quality (although Meermin does it with a mostly made in China shoe).

    I’m also sceptical of a company that displays what I would describe as mostly casual shoes unde their “dress shoes” section.

    The shoes may be ok quality and if you like the look, then go for it. How are you hoping to wear these? Since the soles are very casual I would not classify them as a business shoe (pebble grain leather also puts them in the “casual shoe” category for me).

    Don't you mean first-foot experience?

    They have tons of five-star reviews. They must be doing something right in terms of pleasing their market.
    Intentionally overdressed for almost every occasion.
