Go ahead, nerd out.

Our soles are made with new, proprietary materials that deliver surprisingly sweet comfort, all day long. Our A-grade full grain leather comes from one of the best tanneries in the world, who also happen to be our business partner; that means you get incredible quality at a price you won’t find anywhere else. The shoes are then made by masters in Portugal who have decades of experience but also aren’t afraid to get a little futuristic with it. This is a totally different type of shoe.

Water Repellent Italian Suede

WATER REPELLENT ITALIAN SUEDE

Sustainably sourced from one of the finest tanneries in Tuscany, Italy, our protected suede stays fresh under rain or shine.

Heat-Activated Arch Support

Heat-activated arch support

We’ve got fancy foam that uses heat to form to your foot. It’s like memory foam but more durable so it’ll stay supportive way longer.

Dual-Density Outsole

Dual-density outsole

Our proprietary TPU outsole uses high-performance athletic technology in the front, for flexibility, and strong hiking boot material in the back, for support. Wear them all day without tiring out your feet.

Super-Soft Buck Skin Lining

Super-soft buck skin lining

Your feet will be hugged in buttery-soft sheepskin lining that's laser perforated to allow airflow. You’ll basically not want to wear socks.

Run big

They’re nice looking shoes, was really hoping they’d fit and I was looking forward to this style and color. Unfortunately, they run big and being that I’ll be responsible for shipping cost, I don’t want to continue to try and find the right fit so I’ll be returning them and hope to see them retail.

I'm a Believer!

I walk a lot on a daily basis. Recently a sports injury resulted in a bout of Plantar Fasciitis and I started looking for a comfortable pair of dressy shoes. Staying off of my feet for a few weeks was not going to be an option, as we also had a trip to Spain booked and I knew my daily step count was only going to increase.

Fortunately, I decided to try a pair of Amberjacks. Thank goodness I did. The shoes were lifesaver. Not only was I able to trek around in comfort, I was able to enjoy Spain in style. Speaking of style, the shoes dress up and dress down beautifully. When you want a stylish and comfortable pair of shoes, Amberjack should be on the top of your list.

Full disclosure, I replaced Amberjack's very comfortable insoles with some stock orthopedic insoles for added arch support. Amberjack's stock insoles are well shaped, soft & comfy, but I need the additional support to support my Plantar Facia.

Very comfortable and well-made

Nice fitting and comfortable pair that appear extremely well-made. Only issue is the "slate color" is much lighter than it appears in the photos (on a calibrated screen). Not a deal breaker.

Initial Comments on my Amberjack purchase.

I wore the shoes one week ago. Normally, I wear a size 11 in a dress shoe and 11.5 in a sneaker. I found that the Amberjack shoes run somewhat narrow in fit. Wish I had ordered a 11.5 medium. Shoes is Ok. Great profile but was surprised how narrow the shoe fit. Maybe they will mold to my foot. Not overly anxious to wear anytime soon though.

The original chestnut

I love the shoes. They are very comfortable. Require just a little break in. However there is visible glue protruding from where the sole is bonded to the leather upper. This was a second pair from the original order because the first pair had a very noticeable blemish. Maybe a little more quality assurance before they are packaged couldn’t hurt.

Hi Dan, thank you for leaving a review and very sorry about the quality issues. We will pass this feedback to the production team. Please reach out to customer support and they will provide you a free gift as an apology for this repeated issue.
