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.
I bought these as a gift for my husband. He normally wears a 12 in dress/casual shoes and 12.5 in running shoes. Because of other reviewers noting that they ran small, I ordered both a 12 and 13. Like they said, they run a bit small, so he kept the 13s and sent back the 12s. Otherwise, it's a great boot and he loves them.
Fantastic boot. I love the Hunter style but the tall boots are too slim for my calves. These fit perfectly. I usually wear an 8.5/9 and the 9 are just right with some room for a larger sock or an insert for greater arch support if needed. My feet run on the wider side too and there were no issues here. I think the green is really classic - a bit more fun than black or grey but still easy to wear with most outfits. Very sturdy and good grip on the bottom. Overall, highly recommend!
Love these shoes!! Snug opening but they keep your feet dry. Love the plum contrast color on the back. Much sleeker look than the classic hunter rain boot. I was worried they would not be wide enough but the 9 was very comfortable all around (I usually wear 8.5-9). Be warned that they are not insulated so if you plan to wear in cold temps wear a warmer sock.
I got these in the grey matte. The calf is very narrow, so I had to get a 9.
I really love these as a rainboot or for walking in slushy snow/mud. I find they are more comfortable with a thicker sock (I'm an 8.5/9 and ordered the 9 which fit fine). The opening is snug but creates a tight seal so rain doesn't get in. Inside the boot is quite roomy, even for my wider feet. I will point out that there is no insulation so if you're wearing these in chilly conditions, definitely opt for a thicker sock. On the flip side, there's not much breathability so if you wear them inside too long you're feet may get sweaty. Overall very stylish, good grip, easy to clean and keeps my feet dry!
Oh my goodness! Okay, beautiful looking shoes, and they do keep my feet dry... But I'm AMAZED none of the other reviews mentioned how excruciatingly painful these are at the back of the leg! I made the mistake of wearing these out on a rainy day without testing them out at home first. I now have bruises on the back of my lower calf - I could barely walk by the end of the day. Oh man. Expensive mistake.
Well-constructed boot, makes walking through puddles fun. Being in between sizes, opted for the larger and wear the boots with thick socks - they're easy on/off. Hunter boot spray takes care of any bloom which appears on the gloss.
I have a gray pair of these that look just about brand new after 6 years. I just bought a new pair in red. To follow up on people saying they feel a size larger that marked, yes they do. However, they're meant to be that sizing so that the boot socks fit in them. Once you have the socks in them, they're 100% true to size. It just depends on how you plan on wearing them. If you don't want the socks, then I recommend ordering a size down. I am usually always a 7, and my original pair was 7's. They are big, but not huge. It never bothered me that I had extra room when the boot socks weren't in, but when the socks are in, they fit perfectly.
I'm absolutely in love with my nee hunter boots. I have big calves so the tall ones are tight on me. These are just perfect! I'm usually a size 8 on other shoes but they do run big. I ordered a size 7 and it fits perfect! I definitely recommend this brand!
I bought the Ocean colored ones and they're beautiful sort of a teal color. Boots are super comfy and I love the gloss finish. They run large I wear a 9.5 and bought a 9.
