Overall Review
One of the most comfortable "winter" shoes I've ever put on my feet. The GoreTex lining is a blessing because ordinary winter shoes usually put my feet in a sauna. Broke in immediately. Built like a tank -- inspires confidence when out and about in New England winter weather.

Overall Review
I’ve always been a straight-down-the-middle 9-1/2, and these Rainy Day Founders fit me like a custom shoe. Really sturdy, really soft & cushiony, and really handsome, with jeans or a suit. I’m pretty much sold on these Samuel Hubbard's.

These are the first pair of Hubbard's shoes, but they will NOT be my last. Within one day of wearing they felt like I'd owned them for one year. Very comfortable. Living in Denver, with snow, I wanted a pair of shoes to repel the wet and cold. This shoe eats snow and slush for breakfast, all while keeping the toes toasty. I plan on trying the golf shoes -- as soon as the snows recede and the grass grows.

Most comfortable dress shoe ever, and top 3 of all shoe types. Only dress show that I’ve found we reasonable ice/snow tread.

Overall Review
I find this shoe to be just like the rest of my Hubbards and that is excellent in all respects! I feel more than ready for winter with the substantial feel of this shoe and the aggressive contour of the Davos sole and thanks for making them in Wide. While I'm hoping for a less treacherous winter than last year I am happy I have these shoes to take me though it. I no longer have the desire to boot up the way I used to in Italian mountaineer boots to deal with rough winters - these will get the job done so NJ Fimbulvetr bring on your worst!

Overall Review
This is my second pair of Sam Hubbards. I've worn my Rainy Day Founders since receiving them about a week ago and couldn't be more pleased, but if I don't stride perfectly level, the hard top edges of the uppers are still chafing my heels; whereas, I naturally stride a little tipped on my heels. Am hoping either the shoes or my ankles will break-in soon.

This was my 39TH pair of Sam Hubbards and they fit like a dream. I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota where we receive much precipitation all year. Shoes are incredibly comfortable, great out of the box, and look forward to wearing them often, thank you Sam Hubbard, your products are second to none!

I received my pair a week ago and they're the bee's knees - everything I wanted - except the hard upper edges chafe my ankles if I don't toe perfectly straight which is most of the time because I naturally walk a bit angled on my heels. Hoping this is just a matter of breaking them in. Otherwise, happy.

I’m not happy with the way the shoe fits. Bought it for a trip to Japan which I’m still on and suffering and agony is in the right foot. I’m not sure why comfortable when first put on half an hour in the walking miserable. The top portion of the soLe. It may be that the size on the underside protrudes enough to penetrate the top of the soke.In any case this is my fourth pair of shoes purchased from Hubbard and the only one that I would return if I could at this moment
