I love comfortable shoes - especially when they look as good as they feel. That's what I discovered when these shoes arrived a couple weeks ago from the Samuel Hubbard company. While the company has a long and complex heritage stretching back to 1930, and more recently the current CEO is also the co-founder of The Rockport Company - one of my favorite shoe brands years ago. Unfortunately for that brand, it seems to have gotten lost in a convoluted series of mergers and acquisitions over the years. When I slipped the Hubbards on for the first time though, it immediately brought back that same sense of comfort, quality, and style that I used to love in my Rockports years ago.
