    Care Instructions

    Clean regularly with a brush or damp cloth. If wet, let dry at room temperature. Do not leave wet shoes near fire, radiators, or hot pipes.

    STEP 1: To remove dirt and stains use our Suede and Nubuck Cleaning System, following the instructions on the box.

    STEP 2: To maintain waxy finish, lightly apply our Carnauba Wax Polish with a cloth or brush.

    STEP 3: Take our Heel Dressing applicator and press against the edge of the heels and soles.

    STEP 4: Once the material has dried, spray our Water Protector over the surface of the shoes and let dry.


    Relaxed Fit

    The relaxed fit has added space in the toe box. This extra room allows for thicker socks and foot expansion that occurs at the end of the day or during a long flight.

    Ask & Answer
    Higgins Mill Boot with Waxed Suede Leather is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great comfortable boot I've had these for about a year now and they are my favorite pair of AE's I've owned. They are comfortable to walk all day in and withstand dirt and rain very well. I normally wear a 10.5 but these fit better as a 10, especially with smart wool socks. They look great with jeans or causal work pants. The only complaint I have is that the tongue shifts to the side throughout the day, but this is only an aesthetic complaint and it doesn't affect comfort. I recommend these boots to everyone.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Casual Look - Casual Quality This is my 4th pair of AE footwear. Two pair are 20+ years old and have recently been recrafted - with outstanding results. My 5th Avenues are stunning, and these Higgins Mill boots in waxed suede are a great looking casual boot, albeit with quality issues. Fit is true to size, and it's worth point out that these come in B width. Like my other AE shoes, these come with a gentleman's corner cut off of the inside leading edge of the heel. Like other reviewers have documented, mine exhibited a non-symmetrical backstay that was markedly off-center as well. In addition, there were gouges in the welting near the instep. I have owned factory seconds before and never could find the defects. These first quality boots have several imperfections that are obvious to the casual observer. The tongues are not gusseted, but mine seem to stay in place. Interestingly, the tongues on my 5th Avenues are tacked part-way up on the port side. Clearly, AE has the capability to make sure tongues stay in place. Unlike backpacking boots, these lack padding in the uppers. So , they dig in at the lower calf when new.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking boot These boots are beautiful and exactly what I was looking for. Not too dressy, but would never be mistaken for a work boot either. Allen Edmonds uses top quality materials from top to bottom. I’ve tried a few other boot companies and as far as quality materials Allen Edmonds doesn’t skimp at all. That said... this was the 5th pair I purchased after returning the previous 4. They are letting some seriously bad mistakes go out the door, some which probably shouldn’t even be sold as seconds. I still think it was worth the hassle, but plan on being frustrated.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quality Control a Major Issue I own my share of AE shoes, mostly new shoes but also including 2 pairs of Higgins Mill Boots (CXL leather) that were both seconds. I am perfectly comfortable with the imperfections, particularly with handmade shoes and even more particularly with boots. But I just opened a pair of new suede Higgins Mill boots I ordered during the ongoing 2020 sale, and they arrived with more defects than any pair of seconds I’ve ever seen. If AE let us attach photos to these reviews I would show you. The back stay on the left boot is so off-center that it is clearly visible from the side of the boot. The overall height is also 0.5 inches shorter than the right boot. The uppers on both are so blotchy and scuffed I am shocked they were allowed out the door as first run boots for that reason alone. These are so bad that even if I had bought them as seconds I would gladly return and eat the restocking fee. Like I said, I currently (and proudly) wear 2 pairs of Higgins Mill boots (CXL) that were purchased as seconds... I get lots of compliments. So I assure you my complaints are not trivial nit picks. These are going back.

    Can this boot be worn in wet and snowy conditions

    Asked by: Roger
    Hello, Thank you for inquiry! We would not recommend wearing the boots in heavy snow conditions because they are suede. -AE Consumer Care Dept.

    I generally shy away from lots of suede/nubuck but figured I would ask. If it's raining my material of choice is always CXL, followed by the tumbled grain. How does the waxed suede hold up? Not bad, or much more delicate? Is this similar to what was used on the older Gray McTavish or Big Sur?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Thank you for your inquiry! While this style is not considered to be fully waterproof, the wax has a natural repellency to water. It should hold up to some light rain. You can also add a level of protection by applying Carnauba Wax in Natural, or using our Water Protector, which can be applied regularly or as needed. This is a different leather and finish from the other styles. Feel free to contact us again with any further questions!
