    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 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Held up well after soaking in ocean water I bought my pair last fall and have been wearing them as my winter boots in this year’s wintry weather in the American Northeast. It held up well as I wore them through a lot of ankle-deep snow. Mostly impressive was my recent experience. I had to walk into the cold Atlantic water to retrieve some children’s toys (yes, people go to snow-patched beach too.) well, that wasn’t waterproof for sure. My pair were soaked with cold salty ocean water saturated with sands. Half hour later I got home - almost losing my legs to coldness — I rinsed them with warm water and blew them mostly dry with hair blower. Then I left them at the A/C vent for three days. They came back as good as before!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best boots by far! This is my third pair of AE's i've purchased this year and this by far has been the best purchase. I was looking for something more casual than my Dalton's and something i could wear on the weekends and more casual days at work. These fit the bill perfectly and i couldn't be more happier with this purchase. They broke in after just a couple of days and are now my most favorite pair of boots.

    What is the best color of carnuba wax to use (black or natural), and will that provide water repellency as well as a non-silicone waterproofing spray?

    Asked by: AKC
    You can use black or neutral polish. Also, we would recommend water protector to help with water repellency. -AE Consumer Care Dept.

    Can you please make this boot in a 14 EEE?

    My size is not available.
    Asked by: Dave29
    Unfortunately, we are sold out of the 14EEE in this boot. Also, we will not receive any inventory because it is a closeout style.
