Story

Our most popular Go To Work shoe… now with extra protection from the elements.

Featuring all the things you love about our classic Founder - the finest leather uppers, cowhide glove leather lining and our triple-density Poron® memory foam insoles.

We added a GORE-TEX® membrane to keep your feet comfy and dry and finished with the Davos® Ice Sole with Super Grip technology to keep you upright in slippery situations.  So comfortable that they will become your go-to shoes-rain or shine.

Sizing

The Rainy Day Founder has a sleek, sophisticated look and fit. If this is your first pair of Hubbards, you'll likely find them true to size.

*If you already wear a shoe from our Casual or Outdoor collection, you may find that the Rainy Day Founder fits a little narrower in the toe box.
*If you already wear a shoe from our Dress Collection these will fit the same.

Overall Review
I have been searching for a waterproof shoe, since I bought my last pair in Ireland over 10 years ago. I already have a couple of pairs of Hubbard shoes, which I love... so, I decided to check out the Hubbard waterproof shoes. I bought the Rainy Day Founder shoe and liked them so much, I also bought the the Rainy Day Re-boot. They are both so handsome, my teenage girls really appreciate the styling of the Re-boot. I am so happy with my new shoes.

Lastly, I want to mention how great customer service is at Hubbard. I spoke to Stormie several times. She is terrific... she helped me with sizing of the waterproof shoes and the re-soling of a well-worn and much loved old pair of Almost Black Hubbards walking shoes. Thank you, Stormie.

Overall Review
The Rainy Day Founder exceeded my expectations. My 4th pair of Hubbard’s and the best. Sizing perfect, full width in standard size (unlike some models that can be thinner), and a joy to wear. Stable and sturdy (but not heavy) on slippery surfaces but dressy enough to wear with tie and jacket. Exceptionally comfortable and sharp shoe!

What a superb pair of shoes. Very comfortable right out of the box. Extremely practical for winters in the northeast (Gore-Tex). Good looking and appropriate for casual as well as for work. Obviously very well made with excellent craftsmanship. I would highly recommend it.

I have worn the Rainy Day Founder a couple of times in cold and drizzly weather in the week since they were delivered. They are comfortable, dry and are sure-footed, as promised. I hesitate to reveal that these are my 7th pair of Hubbards. Like the rest, the fit is true (it probably helps than my foot is a very "average" 10M), they are comfortable, light, stylish and provide excellent support.

I have a pair of Hubbard loafers which are perfect. I have worn these shoes only for one day so far - a bit of a rub on one toe, right foot. I will try thinner socked tomorrow...

Overall Review
This is my second pair of Samuel Hubbard shoes. I made the switch to Hubbard after being a long time Allen Edmonds customer--I could not be happier with the change. Samuel Hubbard are the most comfortable and highest quality shoes I have owned. These shoes fit, and more importantly wear, so much better than Edmonds shoes ever did. Great quality and fit!
