    Care Instructions

    STEP 1: Using a damp cloth or sponge, lather our Saddle Soap and apply onto leather to clean and restore its natural oils.

    STEP 2: Moisturize the shoes with our Cream Polish to make them supple and soft, following instructions on the product.

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

    STEP 4: Take our Heel dressing applicator and apply to the edge of the heel and sole.

    STEP 5: Apply our Leather Lotion as needed for added protection and polish in 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.

    Relaxed Fit

    Most people consider a “classic” fit to be a “standard” fit. This fit more closely aligns with the natural shape of your feet.

    Higgins Mill Boot with Tumbled Leather is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 38.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful leathers. Great boots, super materials. One weak spot, the sole is not great is slick conditions, ice and snow etc... Something sets off the TSA scanners at the airport. Perhaps the eyelets.
    Date published: 2019-12-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots No break-in required and comfortable on day one out of the box. Goes well with jeans or a suit on inclement weather days. Highly recommend.
    Date published: 2019-12-04
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable. Strings are a foot too short to actual lace and tie. Must replace those. I loved this brand 5 years ago. Gone downhill for awhile now. These boots are okay. If you like just okay things these are the boots for you. The whole brand seemed to move that way a few years ago. Maybe I should become open to new things or pay half as much for this brand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Boots! Impeccable craftsmanship! I own the Higgins Mill in black and in brown and they are the finest boots on the market, in my opinion. I just bought a pair of dress shoes as well.

    Do these boots have a metal shank? Will I be able to wear them through a metal detector?

    My job requires me to go in and out of secure areas routinely. I would like a boot that can traverse the security checkpoints without setting off metal detectors.
    Asked by: Zachery
    At Allen Edmonds we do not use metal shanks on our welted styles, including the Higgins Mill boots. However, as airport security expands their screening technology and restrictions, they may still detect the metal eyelets or the metal nails we use to hold the heels together in most of our shoes. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions!

    Shoe polish?

    Can the tumbled leather brown “Higgins mill” boots be polished using applications of dark brown shoe cream and wax as normal dress boots?
    Asked by: Sreezy36
    Yes, you may use our shoe cream and carnauba wax on this style. Feel free to contact us again if you have additional questions!

    I like my Long Banch brown boots, but want a more dressy boot - the Higgins Mill black. Will the leather be as soft and will the tow box be as large.

    I wear 13E
    Asked by: John
    The feel of the leather is similar. With that said, leather that has been broken in overtime will be softer than a brand new pair. We suggest trying it to see how you like it. The Higgins MIll has a 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. Keep in mind products purchased on AllenEdmonds.com may be returned as long as the item is unused and not customized.

    What leather tannery is this from?

    "Grained leather" isn't descriptive enough. Is this Horween? Or a lower quality tannery?
    Asked by: ProudlyMadeinUSA
    Thank you for reaching out to us. Horween is only used for our cordovan styles. We import our leathers from multiple companies. However, the Higgins Mill is made from high quality full grain leather. If you have any additional questions feel free to contact us 1-877-817-7615 or eservice@allenedmonds.com
