    Care Instructions

    STEP 3: Condition the shoes with our Speed Polish, protecting them from dirt, rain and snow.

    STEP 4: Take our Heel dressing applicator and press against the edge of the heels and soles.

    STEP 5: Apply our Leather Lotion as needed for added protection and polish between cleanings. Use our Horsehair Shine Brush to buff shoes to a desired shine.

    *For camo printed leather, simply rub our Leather Lotion onto print with our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth as needed and wipe smudges or dirt away with a damp cloth.

    Ask & Answer
    Higgins Mill Boot with Chromexcel Leather is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 120.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and comfortable The Chromexcel leather is beautiful and the boots are quite comfortable--and I am extremely picky when it comes to comfort. Over the years I've found that Ecco Track II shoes are the most comfortable for my feet. While these boots do not have arch support like the Ecco Track II's, they are nonetheless comfortable. I wish they had more cushion, but without a midsole, that is hard to get. I tried a number of boots prior to these (e.g. Trask, Oak Street, and Thursday Boots), and these were the best for walking in, allowing me a smooth gait compared to the others. Probably my only complaint is that the tongue on the right boot doesn't stay straight (it slides to the right), but that is probably not the fault of the boots and it doesn't affect comfort for me.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent but certainly not great I'm a huge Allen Edmonds fan. I have 10 or so pair and have generally been happy with the dress shoes. These boots however fall short of expectations. I've only had them 7 or so months and wear them perhaps 4-5 times a month. They are fairly comfortable but are wearing out quickly. They look far older than they actually are. The AE dress shoes I purchased at the same time still look perfect. The worst part is the laces. These cheap, laces fell apart after six-months of use. To make matters worse, I just called Allen Edmonds customer service and was told they do not stock the laces and there was nothing they can do for me. Wow!!! I was hoping for more from a $400 pair of shoes and so should you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent boot! So Higgins Mill boot competes squarely in dress/work boot category alongside Thursday Captain/president, Indy 405, and Redwing Iron ranger 8111, and wolverine 1000 mile. Price is average for this lineup, yet quality is just about top notch. I love my 405s in almost every way, and yet the simple elegance of these higgens mill boots, makes me come back to them time and again. The look can literally go with any outfit. But where the 405 is stiff, the higgens mill is supple. The chromexel leather, a very nice touch, wears so soft and beatifully. You will not be dissapointed you started your boot collection with a pair of allen edmonds. Allen Edmonds was my first introduction to fine hand made shoes and it still gives me utmost pleasure to don my park avenues. The bottom line though, is that these are comfortable enough to be worn all day, and are exceptionally well built, with a timeless elegant look. Horween's leather quality speaks for itself for those who are in the know. There are alot of quality boots out there, but design, price point, quality, AND CUSTOMER SERVICE, converge perfectly for the Higgens Mill! Note: for me these were true to size, because I wear a much thicker sock with these than with my oxfords, but they will have a "loose" boot fit, compared to regular Allen Edmonds stock.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality issues are abundant First...I'm a long time buyer and currently own 9 pairs of AE shoes. I have been through 4 pairs of this boot. Each pair had had documented quality control issues... I ordered 3 pairs online and suffered through having to return each pair. I purchased my current pair directly from an Allen Edmonds store to ensure I could thoroughly inspect before purchasing. They looked fine, so I purchased thinking I finally got a good pair. After a couple of wears, the right boot is wrinkling much different than the left pair. This isn't a normal wrinkle...it's feels like there is some type of coating on the leather that may be separating (maybe the Chromexcel) ? Anyway...the boot is comfortable and I'm just going to keep the pair I have. I have given up trying to find a pair that should meet AE standards.

    Pre-Creased shoes

    Hello, I purchased a pair of Higgins from an in store retailer. The shoes appear to already have creasing in the Vamp area. The toe area does not look as flat and smooth as it does in the picture on your website. There are a bunch of lines and it looks like the branch of a tree. Is this a normal occurrence in this type of leather, and something that happens with usage? I have never purchased AE shoes so I want to be sure they are not defective with loose grain or inferior quality.

    Which speed polish color should I buy?

    I know the boot description says brown but when I received these they appear to have reddish tint to them. Should I buy "Chili" instead of brown?
    Asked by: astromoose
    I wouldn't use shoe polish on chromexcel leather. I would just clean them and use some shoe cream to condition the leather. I use saphir greasy leather cream because that's what I happened to have, but I'm sure Allen Edmonds sells a similar product that is equivalent

    What is the recommended sizing compared to sneakers? Are they true to size or should I order 1/2-full size down?

    Asked by: Chris
    The boots run true to size, as do the sneakers. Not sure if i will do business with this company anymore, do to a problem with replacing a pair of deffective shoelaces. Too petty for me.

    What kind of insole? Poron?

    Asked by: Carlos
    Its a leather insole. And leather lined. It is extremely comfortable and soft. Feels luxurious for a boot. Get them while they are on sale. The only thing you need to take care of em is a big brush and AE leather lotion. DO NOT USE A WAX BASED POLISH. Saphir greasy leather cream in neutral works fine too. Source: hours and hours of research and experience with these shoes.

    Can these shoes be worn in the rain and snow?

    I know that the sole will be fine since it is waterproof but is the leather upper also waterproof/resistant. If so how do you recommend maintaining that water resistance?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    I wouldn’t recommend getting them too wet. I would say the care of the leather should be similar to your leather dress shoes.
