Toe box a bit tight so had to go to a wide in a half size smaller. It is going to be good. Fit is good and comfortable.

I am so glad I found Samuel Hubbard Shoes at Nordstrom a few years back. They are the most comfortable shoes that I have ever worn. The rainy day founder was my 5th pair. I was not disappointed. My feet never feel tired or soar after a long day. I am not a rich man by any means, but I try not to skimp on shoes because I am on my feet all day. Worth every penny!

Overall Review
It was clear at first glance that this is a well made shoe, sturdy with great support. The memory foam inner makes it one of the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. But what really stands out for me, in my senior years, is the confidence I feel due to the Davos® Ice Sole with Super Grip. It works. If that option was available on some of their other lines, Samuel Hubbard would be my only source for footwear. It's that good. And if Rainy Day Founder came in brown, I'd now own two pairs. At my age, comfort and security are worth the price.

This is my second pair of this shoe; I have worn them all through a wet winter in Scandinavia and NYC. As with all SH's they are extremely comfortable and great for extended walking---with the benefit of keeping your feet dry in very wet conditions.

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.

Overall Review
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.
