Overall Review
These really do feel like sneakers, and their performance during a recent business trip to a very slushy Quebec City overcame the conditions there flawlessly. These are the overall best shows I have ever owned in nearly 59 years.

Walking to work and back in minus 10 degrees is no problem with these. I love the shoe, it hs a nice cushion when walking making it like a tennis shoe. I was getting a lot of compliments on these at the office, so I bragged about it and few guys are looking into buying them.

Overall Review
These shoes are like wearing stylish sneakers with cushy orthotics ..all the while being very semi dressy ...to make them full on dress shoes ..all you have to do is dye the natural leather stiched welt black ..($8 on amazon )
There made from premium leather ..and the Devos super grippy sole lives up to its claim ..
The insides are really well made with NO seams or stitching to iritate your skin right out of the box comfort ..
And there gor-tex ..the leather will take a high gloss polish if you want
They are definetly worth the money ...

Overall Review
I love - love - my Rainy Day Founders, but after about a month of wear, I noted that the Davos Gripp sole was separating from the soft rubber part of the sole at the left tip. I thought about taking it in to a shoe repair shop, but thought I'd contact Samuel Hubbard first. I had a few minutes, so I decided to call. Here's the first amazing thing: Daniella - a real person - picked up the phone on the second ring. Here's the second amazing thing: In less than two minutes I was off the phone, assured that a brand new pair would be shipped by the next day. My new pair - which I also love - arrived quickly and Samuel Hubbard made it a cinch to send back the old pair, free of charge, via UPS. So, incredible shoe and incredible customer service.

Leather could be more pliable. Very different than my other Hubbard shoes!

Overall Review
Excellent pair of shoes: handsome and stylish, warm and comfortable. Very happy to have bought them despite the price. One bonus: my initial pair of Rainy Day Founders was tight above the heal and creating an abrasion. After a week of wearing them, I called customer service and the rep was responsive and completely understanding. She said, "there must be a manufacturing defect; we'll send out a new pair." No resistance and t even, "send them back and we'll replace them." I received a new pair of shoes two days later; they fit perfectly and I used the shipping box and free UPS label to send back the originals. The new ones are perfect and I could not be happier. I'm a Samuel Hubbard fan for life!

Overall Review
I bought these shoes for a trip to Central Washington and Seattle and put then through some snow and of course, rain in Seattle. They were fantastic and still fairly light...I tried on a pair of White Boots shoes in Spokane and these were much lighter. Very happy with the purchase...many compliments have come my way also.

Overall Review
Fits fine, sized with the website paper shoe measuring print out. Though initially quite stiff and difficult to get on wearing athletic type socks and a very long shoe horn the shoes were very comfortable from the start. The shoes have softened over the past two weeks and are easier to get on and off now .The Davos sole is a bit different being thicker at the ball of the foot (metatarsal phalangeal joints) than the toe making for a forward rocking motion when walking. You get used to this quickly and so far on packed snow in my plowed driveway I have had excellent traction. The shoes appear to be relatively waterproof as well.

Nice looking winter shoes. Seems to run large and wide for me. Returning original order and recording 1/2 size smaller. Hope that fits better.

Overall Review
Once again, the Samuel Hubbard Company came through with an excellent product. The shoes are comfortable and true to size. They look great and are top-quality shoes. I am very happy with the purchase. Do not let the price deter you from purchasing. They will last for many years and are worth the price.
