Wellies, originally favored by the hunting and sporting set, stand as a pillar of British design. And no brand is more aligned with the welly than Hunter. The Hunter Original boot was introduced in 1956 and has since become an icon. The Original is still made today using many of the same heritage techniques as employed in the ‘50s.
The Hunter Original Tall and Original Short rain boot are offered in a matte and gloss finish in a cornucopia of colors. It is the ideal boot to wear when it’s sprinkling, raining, or pouring and you’re tromping through wet streets, slick grass, or straight mud. It keeps your pants and feet clean and dry. They also look great too!
Spring showers bring summer rainstorms which then become cold fall rain and winter sleet. Hunter wellies can be worn in every season; however, don’t forget to layer warm socks underneath your boots when the temperature dips. Luckily, Hunter makes boot socks in quite a few designs to wear with your boots for a unified look and cozy feel. Welly socks are also available for kids as well, so the whole family can wear and enjoy.
Hunter boots are purchasable for men, women, girls, and boys in a range of pull-on and lace-up styles. They exude a classic style and will hold an important place in your wardrobe for years to come. These will be the boots that you hand down proudly once your child outgrows them.
Hunter holds two Royal Warrants by Appointment to HM The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh as suppliers of waterproof footwear. This appointment is awarded to those who have provided products to the royal household for at least five years. Hunter received the first in 1977 from the Duke of Edinburgh and the second from HM The Queen in 1986.
This boot is big--no half sizes available. However, it is a solid rain boot that gets the job done. If you're a half size, like me, throw on a good sock, and be on your merry way with your dry feet.
I normally wear a 9.5. In the Hunter original boot I had to size down to a 9. I ordered a 9 in the refined Chelsea and it is too small. I guess it is actually true to size and the Originals are a bit large. Going to try the 10 this time. Love the look--sure hope it fits!
Wow! I am Horrified at the condition of the boots that your company sent! There are all kinds of scratches and white scuff marks all over both boots! Where is your Quality Control? I have tried Zappos twice now and have been so let down. Your company really needs to work on Qualilty Control!
Couldn't be happier with these boots! This is my first investment into real rain boots, and I've already gotten to use them three times. They look adorable, and really keep my feet dry. I don't have to think twice about stepping into puddles to cross the street. I think I have wide feet or maybe tall feer, but I bought my normal size at the standard width and these feel great. I also have thick calves, which is why I chose the short boot. Would recommend!
I never considered buying black Hunters (for ages) but these are beyond fabulous in glossy black! I own them in lipstick pink and military red, which I LOVE, but bright colors are pretty limited as far as what you can wear them with. These are great with all my color clothes. I add orthotic arch support and woolie socks and my feet stay dry and comfy all day. Great boot. Shines up with armourall with the white film appears.
My daughter was thrilled with her Hunter boots! And of course, customer service at Zappos is excellent!
worse boots ever. Wore them for the first time today at horse show and tore my ankles apart. Wish I could return them
I got confused with this boot, "Hunter Original REFINED Gloss" (HORG) and the "Hunter Original Gloss" (HOG) that I was trying to replace -- been very happy with my old pair but the dog got my side buckles and it was time to upgrade. Be alert, the fit is different between these two Hunter boots. I'm a huge fan of HOG, but not the HORG. HORG is more "refined", I guess, (now that I notice the subtle name difference) but the HORG is a sloppier fit in the front of the ankle (for me), perhaps due to heel being lower and the styling in the ankle area. Also, the calf on the HORG is much slimmer than the HOG. I've got bigger calves, so I need the extra room just to get in, much less to slide in a pair of slim jeans. (This is the first time I've measured my calves, but some facts may help your purchase. I'm 15".) Returning these but excited to discover my error - ordering my navy HOGs now! Enjoy your boots, they are great if you get the right one for you.
This was the first time I have ever ordered from Zappos, and I cannot say enough good things. I had a hellish experience from an Amazon seller trying to buy some boots and I ended up having to spend $40 in return shipping and restocking fees. I bought the same boots from Zappos, wanted to size up, and not only did I not have to pay any return shipping or restocking, but the replacement boots were overnighted to me on Zappos' dime. The customer service rep was super friendly too. No wonder people rave about Zappos customer service. Zappos is my new go to for my family's shoes (and everything else they sell)!
These are beautiful boots, however, they arrived damaged. The boot was scuffed all along the top of the foot. Disappointing but I might have returned them for another pair except the calf of the boot was tight so I have to return them. I do have large calves so I wouldn't say that the boot calf runs narrow.
