This is by far one of the most comfortable shoe I've worn. They are outstanding on wet surfaces. They have a grip that does not slip. I love em! And their customer service is second to none.

I work long hard hours tending bar for a busy catering company in the bay area. I have had other high end very comfortable dress shoes before but I am absolutely overjoyed by how great my feet feel even after spending eight hours on my feet wearing my Rainy Day Founders ! Thanks Samuel Hubbard & Stormie for making my entire experience absolutely perfect! Big Thanks, Sean Kilby

Overall Review
Hopefully the third pair is charm. Had to return my first two pairs due to the front part of the sole was defective. I was told that there was a defective batch. Hopefully these will last more than a month or two. I want to buy a pair of hiking shoes but I am reluctant due to the issues I have had with the rainy day founder. They are expensive. I do very much hope my pair is not defective because I absolutely love them!

Overall Review
Absolutely fantastic right out of the box. Every year I participate in a local festival by walking foot patrol for about six hours. I am a police chief in a small coastal city. I’ve been in law enforcement for over thirty-five years and walking in full uniform with all of my gear isn’t as easy as it used to be! Comfortable supportive shoes make it bearable and my Hubbard’s made it easy! I hadn’t considered these shoes for duty before, I own several other pairs for “off-duty”, but now I enthusiastically endorse them for duty personnel!

Beautiful shoes, and practical too, with their traction soles. Only one drawback, they're not as wide as their "wide" designation would imply. 9-wide (or 9-EE) is my usual size in other brands, but they're still a little too tight. I hope to break them in the old-fashioned way, by wearing them a half-day at a time until they become more comfortable. I'll also look for a reputable cobbler who can stretch them without damaging them, unless the Hubbard people advised against it.

Overall Review
After a long wait these shoes became available in a 9 Wide so I bought them for my husband. Ordinarily underwhelmed by a new shoe purchase, he took them out of the box, inspected them, tried them on and declared , "these are absolutely the best shoes I've ever worn and they are so well make I feel like they should be exhibited in a museum." He is a very satisfied customer. Thanks for going the extra mile to make something of this quality.
