    Relaxed Fit

    Higgins Mill Suede Boot with Lug Sole is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better in person! Beautiful suede color and the lug sole is a nice durable compliment. Unfortunately brands like AE are dying US brands, because of the throw away culture. I highly recommend this boot and other AE shoes. I'm an American living in Europe and AE even has the credibility over here too. Great customer service too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good brogans. Lightweight, comfortable. The all leather lining makes them cooler than cloth lined brogans I have worn. I have a narrow foot and ordered a "B" width. Had to put a leather inner sole as they were still slightly loose on my feet. Had to do the same with my Daltons and Long Branch brogues. Overall, well satisfied with them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generous toe box. Great, classy, and well-constructed I normally wear an “E” width in all Allen Edmonds shoes, no matter what “last” they’re constructed on. These Higgins Mill boots (and my “Patton” boots as well), are built on a last with a slightly more generous width in the toe box. You “might” get away with one size narrower. My father wore Allen Edmonds for 60 years, and I have worn them for 40 years…”thus far.” The leathers and build quality are top-shelf…you could not find a better boot anywhere. As such, I now own three pair of Higgins Mill boots, and two pairs of “Patton” boots, the later of which are cut a little lower on the ankle (no lace hooks like the Higgins Mill). They offer a nice, additional choice to my other Allen Edmonds shoes on many occasions. I have noticed both men and women “eyeing” the height and classy look of the boot. They definitely surprise people with that extra height and the three rows of hooks and laces. These are classic, “life-time” boots that will never go out of style.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The great new Higgins Mill Suede Boots There is nothing better than that wonderful smell of when you open a new box of boots from Allen Edmonds. I happt to say that I just received my new 10-1/2 W Higgins Mill SUEDE Boots with the Extralight Lugged Soles. This will be my third pair of Higgins Mill boots, and these just may be my favorite. Right out of the box, these boots fit like a glove and there was no breaking-in period. The color is fantastic, and the laces are nice and plyable. I love a good looking suede boot, and these new suede boots have that nice rugged casual look with that great fit and finish that you would expect from Allen Edmonds. I would definitely recommend these new boots to everyone, and they are weatherproof. I am extremely happy with my boots...Enjoy!

    I usually wear sneakers of size 6.5. What size would be appropriate for me for these boots? Also what is 'E' width size?

    Asked by: Shreyas
    I usually wear a 11.5D in New Balance and Nike sneakers. I recomend going a 1/2 size down just like most boots and dress shoes. E, is wide. EE more wide and EEE most wide. I think I answered your question. If not, I recommend contacting AE directly. They have fantastic customer service support.
