Overall Review
I own two pairs of Hubbards. The Rainy Day Founder (and the Hubbard Free) is the prime example of what shoes should be. Construction that relieves any discomfort or pain. The shoe is derived from an exceptional design and quality materials. I enjoy walking again and my feet are never tired. I have always bought quality shoes but these are the best shoes I have ever owned and I will never buy a different brand again.

I wear this for my day to day that includes a lot of walking but my feet don’t get tired at the end of the day. I always wore Clark’s but felt pain at both feet when I returned home from work. Worth to pay little extra to buy Samuel Hubbard shoes.

I am a disabled veteran in his mid-eighties, with combat-related balance problems. These comfortable shoes provide me with improved stability and they do not slip on ice. As soon as I save up enough, I will order a second pair. Thank you so much.

Overall Review
I bought these shoes because of their advertised superior grip.
I waited for a snow storm and a real life test before writing this review..
I found the grip superior to my other foul weather shoes .
I definitely felt more secure walking on snow and ice surfaces.

They are very comfortable, and i consider the look slightly industrial - a small style price for such improved grip and secular feeling in slippery conditions.

I have two pairs and they are comfortable and durable in rain or snow. They are a great looking shoe and the bottom soles add to my secure walking. They are the best.

Overall Review
Got these shoes about a week ago. When I tried them on, they were a tad loose, so I put in a thin insole. That worked beautifully. I like the look and feel of these shoes. When I wear them, I feel like I'm walking on a cloud. Well done!

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.

Overall Review
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.
