    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 press against the edge of the heels and soles.

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

    Higgins Mill Boot with Chromexcel Leather is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 114.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautful, comfortable and prone to quality control issues Beautiful boots; the most comfortable I’ve ever had. No break in period. They’re eye catching and get compliments. BUT.. these boots have frustrating quality control issues. My first had a lot of loose grain so I returned them; the customer service was great. When I got the second pair they looked fine. Here’s the thing: I can live with the fact that chromexel leather dings and scratches easy. But less than a month in and the heel on my left boot is separating. And the welt on the inside of the same boot is cracked apart. This isn’t even after hard wearing; and I only wore maybe 3 times a week. You have to pay attention to notice but how do I know this won’t get worse? $395 shoes shouldn’t have these problems. Awesome looking boots. But I have boots that cost half the price (Thursday’s) with none of these QC issues.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shoe but be careful with sizing I have two other pairs of AE shoes, plain derbies from the late 1990s and MacNeil wingtips from 2017, both of which fit perfectly in a 14. I ordered the Higgins boot in a 14, and I'm pleased with the look, versatility, and quality. However, my pair is quite large, to the point that I need to wear doubled-up thick socks to avoid blisters. The result is that I can only really wear them comfortably in cold weather. I encourage you to try out different sizes before pulling the trigger. I got mine on sale in a non-return situation, so I'm stuck. It could be worse, but I bet I'd wear these every day if they fit as well as my other AEs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These will be your go-to boots Boots are awesome. I bought the same fit I have with my other AE's and they are perfect. Break-in was very quick and I love the look. Goes great with chinos and jeans. I used to wear sneakers a lot with my chinos and jeans but now find myself reaching to my Higgins.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great All Around Boot Had a few notice the boots for what they are but mostly a stealthy option to quality footwear. Very comfortable for standing and walking all day. Quality materials and construction. This is my 3rd pair of AE footwear and will be adding to the collection.

    Pre-Creased shoes

    Hello, I purchased a pair of Higgins from an in store retailer. The shoes appear to already have creasing in the Vamp area. The toe area does not look as flat and smooth as it does in the picture on your website. There are a bunch of lines and it looks like the branch of a tree. Is this a normal occurrence in this type of leather, and something that happens with usage? I have never purchased AE shoes so I want to be sure they are not defective with loose grain or inferior quality.

    Which speed polish color should I buy?

    I know the boot description says brown but when I received these they appear to have reddish tint to them. Should I buy "Chili" instead of brown?
    Asked by: astromoose
    Thank you for your inquiry! We would recommend our Speed Polish in Brown. If you have any further questions or concerns, please call us at 1-877-817-7615.

    What is the recommended sizing compared to sneakers? Are they true to size or should I order 1/2-full size down?

    Asked by: Chris
    The boots run true to size, as do the sneakers. Not sure if i will do business with this company anymore, do to a problem with replacing a pair of deffective shoelaces. Too petty for me.

    What kind of insole? Poron?

    Asked by: Carlos
    Its a leather insole. And leather lined. It is extremely comfortable and soft. Feels luxurious for a boot. Get them while they are on sale. The only thing you need to take care of em is a big brush and AE leather lotion. DO NOT USE A WAX BASED POLISH. Saphir greasy leather cream in neutral works fine too. Source: hours and hours of research and experience with these shoes.

    Can these shoes be worn in the rain and snow?

    I know that the sole will be fine since it is waterproof but is the leather upper also waterproof/resistant. If so how do you recommend maintaining that water resistance?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    I wouldn’t recommend getting them too wet. I would say the care of the leather should be similar to your leather dress shoes.

    Can these boots be worn in inclement weather?

    Example rain and snow? What would be the appropriate method for maintenance if they were worn for such purpose?
    Asked by: LuxLemon
    Chromexcel leather can handle wet conditions as it's heavily infused with oils that naturally repel water. It also features an all-weather Dainite rubber sole. Should you get caught in inclement weather conditions, we recommend wiping any water or salt off the leather with a soft cloth, letting them dry away from heat, and insert shoe trees. Apply Leather Lotion as needed. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
