Samuel Hubbard Rainy Day Founder

Samuel Hubbard's 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.

  • Premium full grain leather upper provides ample protection from the elements.
  • GORE-TEX® waterproof and breathable membrane keeps your feet dry, regardless of the conditions.
  • Full glove-leather lining delivers buttery soft feel and eliminates pressure points.
  • Davos® Ice Sole with Super Grip technology keeps you sure-footed on even the iciest winter days.
  • Fine shearling lining keeps your feet toasty warm and happy.
  • Triple-Density memory foam insole, topped in silky smooth leather. Easily removed if you wish to use your own orthotics.
  • Easily resoled for years of comfort. See our Resole Program.
  • Designed in Mill Valley, CA. Handcrafted in Portugal.
  • Medium: D Width
  • Wide: EE Width

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.

Bruce Katz, founder and CEO, is a third generation shoemaker who is following in the tradition of his grandfather who started the original Hubbard Shoe Company in 1930 in Rochester, New Hampshire. Hubbard built a reputation for fine footwear where fit, comfort, and durability were paramount. When domestic manufacturing became unviable in the early 70’s, the family re-invented their business with the creation of Rockport Shoes, which were made in factories all over the world. Samuel Hubbard Shoe is a new family enterprise created in 2012 with the mission of creating the most comfortable walking shoes for work and for weekends.

At Samuel Hubbard, we design shoes where comfort and craftsmanship are never compromised. Being just “good enough” is not good enough for us. If there is a better method, if there are better materials, then that is what we choose. We strive to honor the past and what we have learned as shoemakers since 1930. Bruce Katz’s father Saul often said, “We make friends with our shoes, one pair at a time.”

Our company is based in Mill Valley, California on the side of Mount Tamalpais. The first collection is produced by a factory on another hillside, in the north of Portugal.
