Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great boot with comfort and durability! The fit is perfect for my foot structure. The boot is comfortable with plenty of support without any restriction. The platform is very stable. The boot looks great and my feet feel great in them. The materials and construction are excellent. A work "style" boot with class! September 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the boot! ... but some flaws in construction First time I saw this in on the website, I knew I had it. Purchased it on sale, and was excited for it to arrive. First arrival had significant discoloring on the top of the shoe for both left foot and right foot. Returned it, and ordered another pair. Second pair had cracks/rips in the inner sole where the stitching. Given that this was on the inside of the foot, decided to keep the pair despite the construction flaws. Overall, love the boot. Got lots of compliments. A little annoyed with construction flaws, but will get over it. September 28, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall, a comfortable boot best suited with jeans or chinos Overall, an extremely comfortable boot. Seems to run large, so unless you plan to wear thick socks, consider ordering a half-size down. To wit, I also have a pair of AE Warwick Monk Straps, both in the same size, and these boots feel noticeably larger. I originally purchased with the intent to wear from mass transit to the office. I wear a dark charcoal M2M suit everyday and was looking for something that would be comfortable, reasonably durable on sidewalks and in inclement weather, and sort of match the suit. I walk about a mile from the train station and then swap into dress shoes once at the office. Heretofore, I've just been wearing black running shoes, so it ought to be clear that at least until I get to the office, I value comfort and durability over style. Comfort-wise, these boots are extremely comfortable. Maybe not running shoe comfortable, but pretty darn close! I have no reason to doubt durability -- particularly because of the Dainite sole -- but don't yet have a lot of miles to say more definitively. With respect to matching a suit, the finish doesn't have the same luster that the pictures would suggest. It's a duller finish more suited to jeans or chinos. I have not yet tried a polish. Additionally, the brown welt contrasting the black upper/sole may violate your fashion sensibilities when paired with a dark gray suit. Lastly, the speed laces tend to catch on my hemmed pants on the inside at the stitching. Not sure why, but it's happened with every wearing on the left side, but not on the right, so your mileage may vary. So, in conclusion, the boot didn't meet my original intended purpose, but I'm keeping them because they're extremely comfortable and pair well with jeans and chinos if not perhaps a suit. September 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great boots! I have Alden Indy boots as comparisons. These Allen Edmonds Higgins boots are simply fantastic. They fit true to size. For me, that's an 11C, since I wear 11C with the popular Park Avenue shoes. The Chromexcel leather of the Higgins boots is supple and easily polished. Very comfortable, plenty of support without being clunky at all. In fact, the boots are a perfect business casual style. I would highly recommend these shoes! September 27, 2016

Answer: 
No, Allen Edmonds welted shoes do not contain a metal shank like shoes from other brands. One major benefit of this type of construction is that our shoes can pass through airport metal detectors without setting them off.

Hi! I noticed that the tongue of this boot looks like it's made from a different leather than the rest of the shoe. Could you confirm if this observation is true, please? Love the look of the shoe!

Thanks.

The Strands I own are a little tight in the forefoot in a 9E. Would it make sense to order these in a 9.5D or 9.5E?

Answer: 
The Higgins Mills is constructed on the 1757 Last and the Strand on the 65 Last. The 1757 last has a wider forepart than the 65 for added comfort across the ball of the foot. It has a rounded profile for a fuller shape similar to the B34 – perfect for boots and other casual silhouettes, but retains a sleek side profile akin to the 65. It’s an easy fitting last with the ideal shape for those who are looking for more comfort in the toe and forefoot areas. It is difficult to recommend a size through this channel and guarantee a proper fit because each last will fit differently based on the contours of your feet.

It is vitally important to visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or retail partner for a professional fitting to increase your chances of being fit correctly for each last and style. However, keep in mind that products purchased on allenedmonds.com may be returned at any time, as long as the item is unused and accompanied by the packing slip. Trying the shoes on a carpeted surface will help prevent scuffing on the sole and keep the shoes in returnable condition.

Answer: 
The Long Branch is made on the 511 last which is similar to the 97 last from heel to the ball of the foot, yet with a more rounded, fuller fitting toe. The 511 last is used in many of our boots because of the added room in the toe box.

The Higgins Mill is constructed on the 1757 Last which is a newer boot last with a wider forepart across the ball of the foot. It has a rounded profile for a fuller shape similar to the B34 – perfect for boots but retains a sleek side profile akin to the 65 Last.

It is difficult to recommend a size through this channel and guarantee a proper fit because each last will fit differently based on the contours of your feet. It is vitally important to visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or retail partner for a professional fitting to increase your chances of being fit correctly for each last and style.
