  • Care

    We believe a great pair of shoes or boots is always a solid long-term investment. To keep your favorite footwear in top form for years or even decades to comes, use our 4 Step Shoe Care Process and these essential products.

    1. Clean

    Start by applying Saddle Soap with a Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth to remove stains and dirt from the uppers and bring up the leather's natural oils.

    2. Polish

    Next, use a Horsehair Dauber to treat your footwear with Cream Polish which renews the color and luster of leather. Any time you want to achieve a truly glossy, high shine, you should instead apply Carnauba Wax Polish.

    3. Dress

    Restore the color and surface of the leather on the heels and soles using Heel Dressing.

    4. Protect

    Leather Lotion keeps uppers soft, supple and hydrated while a Horsehair Shine Brush is perfect for buffing your shoes to the desired shine. As a last step, spray on Water Protector to guard against harmful moisture and spills and use a Leather Dopp Kit to keep all your care products organized.

    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boot When AE stop making the Longbranch boot, it was disappointing because, that was my favorite boot. Its hard for me because I wear a 3e, to find shoes at other shoe stores my size. So when AE came out with this Higgins style and the lug sole, I tried them and these are and have become one of my favorite pair of boots/shoes. Grateful for AE and the customer service. I can wear them with my orthotics and wear for at least 8-10hrs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with these dress boots so far These dress boots are very comfortable and true to size. They are great looking and I am very happy to have a waterproof option for the winter. I have ruined shoes in the past with salty slush. I am looking forward to seeing how they perform over time. Great product so far.

    Do you plan on releasing more colors/leather options of the Higgins Mill with Lug soles? I recently got a black pair, but I’m not keen on the burgundy. I’d like to request you make Brown Saddle Leather available. Let me know if you have any intentions of following through and when they might be available? (I understand I can customize, but I’d rather not pay additional 40$ if you might release different colors and leathers with the lug sole soon). Thank you Christian

    Are the insoles removable?

    Will these boots accommodate orthotics?
    Asked by: My dogs bark
    Unfortunately, the Higgins Mill does not have a removable insole. We apologize for any disappointment this may cause!
