Overview

Why It's Great

One of our most popular boots features a rugged style that harks back to the early logging years in Maine. While no logging experience is required to wear these today, these shoes are not only rugged, the strong features also have an elegant traditional side where the boot portion can be hidden under a pant leg.

How It's Made

The Higgins Mill is made with Horween Chromexcel leather and a Dainite all-weather sole to offer exceptional durability.

How to Wear It

The casual boot features clean, simple lines that give it a relaxed appeal that looks great on campus, at work or on the weekends.

Product Care

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for I have some Alden Indy boots in brown and I wanted a good, solid made black pair of boots. I ordered the Higgins Mill in black from AE corporate. They connected me to the Madison Ave store in NY who then shipped them to me all the way to the west coast. When I got the boots, they fit superbly. However, they squeaked every time I walked. I thought "they will break in and that squeaking will stop." I wore them five whole days and my work colleagues had a blast making fun of my squeak. It sounded like I went wading in a pond and then went to work. I tried to walk different since I work at a bank and I didn't want to attract unwanted attentions. It was no use. Everyone heard it all the time. On top of that my heel sunk into the sole every time I stood up. I didn't want my first pair of AE boots to be this way. My colleagues knew I was amped about getting them. Then, they were all skeptical about them after my experience. I called AE and an associate offered to have them picked up and send me a new pair. She was prepared to have every store hold a pair for me and keep sending me some. I had her send a pair from the corporate office that was the closest to my size. It was a half size bigger. When they arrived, I could tell a difference in the quality right away. I put them on and the fit wasn't much different, but structure totally was. I kept that pair. The customer service was fantastic. I didn't pay anything for the shipping and once they examined the pair I returned I got promptly refunded. I am impressed with the customer service. Now, the boots... They look awesome. I like the light stitching around the top of the sole in contrast with the black leather. I like the stacked leather heel. It just pops out enough to look good compared to all the cheap boots with all leather heels. The leather is shiny as heck and you can dress up or dress down. The leather scuffs easy, but that's part of what makes them so cool. They look good beat up and they are pretty darn easy to shine. The older they get, the cooler they will look. They fit awesome and feel solid and I have walked very far with them. People complain about the tongue sliding to the side. It does do that. That is correct, but I never notice it until I look down at them. It doesn't bother me. My wife has some Frye boots that look awesome and they do that, too. It never bothers her. The dainite sole is nice and seems like it will last a long time before I need to resole these boots. There is some extra material in the leather that bulges in some spots when I stand up that bothered me before, but after seeing so many people's boots out there, it bothers me no more because they still like pretty dope. Also, I always look at boots and other peoples boots look like they have pads in them because of all the bulgy material. My Higgins Mills don't look nearly as bulgy as theirs. I would recommend these boots to anyone who is looking for that lifetime boot. I am extremely satisfied with them. If you are ordering them and have a credit card, I recommend ordering a couple pair if you are unsure of the size, try them on and then immediately send the ones you don't want right back to AE so they can refund you and you don't cary that balance on your credit card.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great craftsmanship Exactly what I have come to expect from Allen Edmonds over the decades: the highest quality materials, craftsmanship, and customer service. I will own and wear these boots for a lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Casual Boot I like this boot because it not only looks good but is comfortable in part due to the Dainite sole. It fits slightly large in the toe box.

Gentlemen, I'm looking at the black Higgins Mill and I see that they only come in a triple E , I normally taken e so with the Triple E, be significantly wider? Thanks for the help.

You can expect approximately 3/8" in difference in volume (all the way around the shoes) when choosing between an E and a EEE. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Is honey leather okay to use with the Higgins mill boots?

Wondering what the best products are to keep the boots protected and nice. I already have honey leather so wondering if that is a good product to use. Thanks!

What is the difference between color 7563 and 7563S Natural?

Asked by: Anonymous
I believe the the only difference in that model# is the “S” signifies “second” (factory second) vs a first run product.

Sizing

I wear a UK 6F for Loake boots and UK6D for Alden boots. Normally in my sports shoes I wear a US7. I got my feet measured by a brannock device and was told that I am a standard UK6D. Which size do you think would fit me the best? I won't be able to visit an Allen Edmond store and I will be leaving the US soon. So getting a correct fit would be pretty important. Please kindly advice the size that has the highest chance of fitting me the best.
Asked by: Freddy
Assuming you haven't left the US yet...I typically take a 12E in AE shoes. AE recommended same for boots. However, 12E was a little too long (and wide.) 11.5 E was better. Note: I wear a thick-ish cotton sock with the boots (not dress sock). Hope that helps.

What color AE shoe polish and shoe cream should I use on my brown Higgins Mill boots?

There are about four shades of brown premium shoe polish that might work, and I can't tell which is a match. Thank you.
Asked by: MysteriousTrousers
Polish is not recommended on this type of leather as it will not be effective. Chromexcel is heavily infused with oils and it's known to be "self-polishing". The appearance of most scuffs can be minimized by rubbing the leather with your fingers. The warmth helps redistribute the oils back into those areas. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Is the Higgins Mill Boot waterproof?

Asked by: Anonymous
Chromexcel leather has a high oil content that provides great water resistance and acts as a conditioner throughout the life of the leather. However, while the leather can tolerate some splashes of water better than other leathers, the boots themselves are not designed or considered to be waterproof. We recommend taking a look at the Vancouver boots as they are part of our Weatherproof collection. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Will these boots work well for law enforcement purposes?

Are these boots up to the task of law enforcement such standing for over 10 hours?
Asked by: Dave
The Higgins Mill, like most of our footwear, is handcrafted using our traditional welted construction during which we apply a layer of cork between the insole and outsole that allows the footbed to conform to the shape of your feet. This is what makes our shoes so comfortable. In addition to the cork, it features a PORON® layer that provides extra cushioning and shock absorption. With that said, fit preferences are unique to each individual and ultimately we recommend trying them on to see if they will be suitable for your specific needs. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Can I dye the edging black? What would be the best dye?

Preventing dark splotches after getting wet?

I understand that I should use leather lotion for care and that these are not the most heavy-duty all-weather boots but that the Chromexcel leather does have natural water-resistant properties. That said, first time I wore them was in a bit of wet grass. Initially water beaded on the surface but that didn't last long and soon there were dark splotches where water was absorbed. Later when the shoes dried out, several small dark spots remained on the toe. This pair is the "natural" color so the spots are more noticeable. If I add leather lotion, will it help reduce the readiness of the leather to absorb water? (I'm thinking no, because the shoes are already new). Will another product help accomplish this? (I read Neatsfoot Oil can be used with CXL leather because that's how it's finished in the factory). I don't plan to wear these in a downpour but I'd like to not have to fuss over a few drops of water.
Asked by: ryan
There's a product called Greasy Leather Lotion offered by Saphir that is specific for 'stuffed' leathers like CXL. I apply it once every three months, and directly after drying when CXL has had any significant wet exposure. Completely protects them.
