    While Allen Edmonds manufacture arguably a more substantial, or "clunky", shoe as opposed to the elegance of an Alden or the bench grade from the Brits, the Lubbock is designed to be rugged - and it is.

    It is not a desert boot, but the calf is a bit thicker and the sole more pronounced. The Lubbock is Goodyear welted, but with external stitching running 360 to the upper. This shoe takes several wears before the calf gives and the sole molds, but there is a noticeable comfort that is well worth the wait.

    My pair run a little large, but I don't think that I could take them 1/2 size smaller. I don't suffer an heel slippage, but there is slight gap. I wear them with thicker socks and jeans as well as linen trousers.

    These shoes are, just as other reviews state, clunkier (or as I prefer, heavier) than the typical AE shoe. That is what makes them a great shoe. The distressed look is an uneven finish and perfect for days I don't want to look like I have just visited the shoe polish booth at the airport. Good choice with jeans and to break up the usual pattern of wing tips or drab black and gray. Due to the distressed look, you won't have to worry about a small scrape on the finish. Like a quality wood floor, just clean them with some saddlle soap and add some weatherproofing and they look better that before.

    This shoe is a keeper! It's built old school style that naturally draws the eye of most folks! These shoes just that ooze "quality". Once broken in and with some polish-- you get the "...nice shoes" line a lot! Another home run from good ol' Allen Edmonds!

    Size: 12 B(N) USColor: Chestnut Verified Purchase
    Here's something they don't tell you about getting older: your feet get larger. After some 40 years of wearing a 12 B (not easy to find) I now need a 12 1/2 B (nearly impossible to find) or 13 B depending on the particular shoe. AE make shoes in a dizzying array of sizes including 13 B and for that I am truly grateful. The Lubbocks are my 5th pair of AEs. I also have two pairs of Aldens and two pairs of Breganos from back in the day before Nike bought and ruined Cole Haan. I bought the Lubbocks in 13 B. They were huge, probably more like a 14 B, a good half inch or more longer than another pair of 13 B AEs I own. Sent them back, got my refund pronto (thank you Amazon), ordered a pair in 12 B, they arrived in 2 days and fit like a glove, but a glove that's about a half size larger than advertised and needs breaking in. I like them, but they're odd shoes: too expensive to be casual, too casual to be dressy. The "distressed" leather is not uniformly tanned, so the toe box and vamp are a lighter shade of what is really sort of British tan not Chestnut, than the rest of the shoe. I'm glad I got them on sale at about 40% off the retail. That said, they do look good and feel good. Beautiful AE leather soles with Goodyear welt and they're built like leather trucks. They are iconoclastic and I plan to wear them a lot.
