  • Orthopedic last provides that famous Hunter fit and comfort.
  • Knitted nylon lining dries quickly.
  • For fall and winter use, warm socks are recommended.
  • Cushioned footbed with multi-layered sponge insole.
  • Please keep in mind that the buckle on this boot is merely decorative and should not be used as an aid to pull the boot on.
  • Traditional calendered outsole.

  • The brand advises that a white wax film may appear on the surface of the rubber boots and that it can be wiped off with a damp cloth. This "blooming" effect is not a defect. Blooming is caused when the boots are exposed to extreme temperatures or temperature swings and the wax helps prevent the rubber from weathering.

Size down or stay with your regular size? Gloss or matte? The quintessential Hunter boot questions. I am typically a size 9 and ordered a size 8 and 9. I was buying these rain boots not only to wear when it rains, but to wear with heavy socks in the winter - our winters are a slushy mess but don't bring heavy accumulations of snow. Given this is the case, I assumed the 9 would be the pair I would wind up keeping because it would probably better accommodate heavy socks. As it turns out, I swam in the 9s. Even two pairs of thick socks didn't help. The size 8 was perfect - they fit perfectly as rain boots with a thin sock and can still accommodate a winter-weight sock. I also found that I preferred the gloss boot. For those like me who might worry about this, they are not too glossy. I have friends who claim the gloss boot "blooms" less too - but only time will tell. I bought a pair of these boots in black and graphite and wound up keeping the graphite. The color is a fantastic medium gray - a great neutral and a little more fun than an everyday color like black. I've gotten tons of compliments on them and wonder why I waited so long to get these boots. It rains where I live quite a bit and gets muddy and mucky out. In these, my feet stay dry and toasty. They are also a pleasure to walk in and are not heavy like some snow boots. Hopefully, I'll feel that my winter socks or a new pair of welly socks will keep my feet toasty when I wear these during the winter. Highly recommend!

Huge! I was wearing my thickest wool socks and even then, these boots were so big it was laughable. Order a size down - maybe 2!

Boots arrived with no problems. I know people often say get a size up in boots, but I got my usual size and they fit perfectly!

Love these boots...they actually make me look forward to rainy days! The bright color is awesome and I've gotten a ton of compliments. They are also very comfortable. My only complaint is they are a little snug on my calves...but I have large calf muscles and most knee high boots won't fit me at all for this reason.

Second pair. Stylish and comfy. I would size down. I'm normally a seven and I wear a six in the hunter boot.

Love these boots. After a month and probably ten wears, they're comfortable and keep me dry. They do scuff a bit, but I don't mind. It buffs out pretty easily on the glossy pair. I originally ordered the Hunter Huntress in matte green, and they were terribly (and unfixably) scuffed and huge, despite being the same size (8) as these. Plus, lots of people have the green pair, and these blue ones are more rare.

Another brand ruined by offshoring manufacturing to you-know-where. Now has a seam where there was not one before; sizing is off; and general quality, overall, about the same as other cheap rain boots.
