Be careful! If you are a woman with normal to larger calves, order the huntress. They are made for women. These originals are unisex so the shaft is higher and the calves are more narrow than the huntress. Otherwise, they are hunter boots... awesome.

I was originally very pleased with these boots. Very comfortable, excellent fit, roomy enough in the calf to tuck jeans in. However, within 8 months of purchase, both buckles had broken, and the insoles in the heel were completely worn through. The seam over the right big toe had split, and the crease over the top of the foot on the left boot, where it bends when you walk, cracked. I'm hard on boots, and wear them daily working with animals on the farm, but for the price I expect a cheap pair of cheap wellies would have lasted just as long. Very disappointed in the durability and quality of materials.

I love these boots! I am 5'4" and they fit me perfectly in terms of height/length. The width is great too, I can stuff my pants in without problem. I bought an 8 originally because my shoe size is 7.5 but they were way too big. The 7 fit perfectly and I was so happy with the very fast and easy return/exchange policy at Zappos.

Love these! I got them in the original green, paid full price for them and then had the price adjusted a few days later when they went on sale (thank goodness for Zappos' great customer service)! I have a wide toe box, so I bought my normal size, and they fit great with a regular sock and will fit even better with a thick sock during the colder months. I can see how one would need to size down if they have a medium-width foot, but if your foot is even a little wide, I would go with your normal size. The only downside is that they are a little difficult to wear while driving, but then again, I have that problem with a lot of boots and not just these. Small price to pay for adorable boots that keep your feet dry!

Sooo cute! I ordered the jade green color in a 7. I'm usually a 7 1/2 and they fit perfect. As far as comfort they seem good but I've only walked a few hours in them not all day. I get TONS of compliments. Definitely go with the jade green!

I love these boots! Very comfortable and stylish, great for the spring in Maine. I would have to agree with other reviews when they have said the boot is somewhat narrow legged. There is not a lit of room to tuck pants in.

I received these as a Christmas gift after admiring them for quite awhile. Unfortunately, I was not impressed with them. Especially for the price. They're overall pretty comfy and a nice fit but offer little support and if it's cold out, forget about it. If it's a cold rain, even when you splurge for the welly socks, these boots do not keep your feet even slightly toasty. Additionally, the buckle broke off one of my boots after only a few wears. Cute and pretty comfy but I wouldn't recommend these. Too expensive for the quality of the boot.

These boots are wonderful. The color is exactly as shown at the picture. But I really need to point out that the upper of the boots is hard and not comfortable, but for whole things, it's never mind.

I am in love! This is my first pair of Hunter Boots and I absolutely love them. I ordered a size 8 and glad I did. The size 9 would have been too big. I wore the boots when it was raining and my feet were dry. The boots are comfortable. Yes, I will be ordering another pair. Thanks Zappos for fast delivery!

The Hunters are here! Let it rain! I have had 2 pairs of regular rain boots that cracked, so I was looking for something sturdy. Did a lot of research and went with this in Aubergine. I'll start with the color: extremely dark purple to the point where it looks black in some lights. I love it, and was originally looking for a rain boot in black, so perfect! Size: I ordered an 8. I generally wear 8 or 8.5. And I have some room in them. So they do probably run about a 1/2 size big. These boots are also very tall, and very narrow. I am 5'4", and they come to my knee - any higher and I probably could not wear them. They are narrow - I have skinny legs, and I do not have much wiggle room. I do have enough room to wear them with thick socks, tights, or skinny jeans. One strange thing to add - they arrived coated in a white, powdery substance (that I read about in other reviews) that makes them appear worn and not new. It seems that it can be rubbed off with some effort. I actually like the look and plan to leave it. They are also comfy, compared to the rainboots I had in the past.

Great rain boots! I had to order a size larger for ease of removal. I usually wear a 7 but it's too much of a struggle to pull them off so an 8 is perfect. Excellent service from Zappos as usual. Delivery is always fast.

I absolutely love Hunter boots! I own a ton of different colors, all fantastic. I wear them for work and even with all the wear and tear they last me a long time! They are easy to wash, and super comfortable! I won't own another brand of rubber boots!

I really wanted these to work because they're more slim fitting and stylish than other rain boots. They worked great for the first couple days, but then started rubbing against my foot in an uncomfortable way and now are too painful to wear for longer than a very short walk.

I'm a college student in Minnesota so I do a lot of walking around campus. After a winter of ridiculous amounts of snow this spring is going to be a wet one and I wanted a pair of these so bad! Finally I caved and I bought a pair despite the steep price. I wear a size 9 usually but due to reviews saying they run huge I bought a size 8. They fit me nice but I probably won't be able to fit a welly sock in them for next winter. I will have to buy another pair (size 9) for winter if I want to wear them with the welly socks (which you need for cold weather). But other than that I am really pleased with them and will spend a lot of time in them this spring!

So I tried the glossy originals on in Bloomies and determined I needed size 42. I didn't realize Zappos posts the US size so just ordered my usual size 11. I received a EU size 43. It was way too big and heavy. I called Zappos and the 42 (10) was at my doorstep before I even packed up my first order. Anyway, for me these boots were way too hard to get on and off. I didn't have any issues with the ones I tried on in Bloomies though. Go figure. I'll just pray blizzardgate is finally over since, unfortunately, these boots are going back. Kudos to Zappos for their top-notch customer service!

Great looking boots, the jade is a striking color. I'm a 1/2 size in flat shoes so I followed the advice of the reviews and sized down. I had to return for the bigger size because they just fit and I would not be able to wear with a thicker sock or the Welles boot liners with the smaller size. Zappos customer service was amazing as always and had a new pair out to me in less than 2 days. I found them to be slightly narrow and no real support but for rain boots they are comfy. I did not have any issues with the shaft height like some had complained about but I'm 5'8". My only complaint is the buckle on one of my boots does not lie flat and keeps coming unbuckled. Not a major issue but for such an expensive boot this shouldn't happen. Still, I love them!

These are probably the best rain boots I've ordered aesthetically, I'm short (5'2) but I like my boot shafts high. I'm usually a 5.5 (boots, flats) to 6 (sneakers, sportswear, heels) and took a 5 in these. The calves were perfect, not too roomy but just roomy enough to comfortably fit leggings, skinny jeans etc... I will say something I love is the nylon lining, it's super smooth that the on/off is so effortless, no more awkward struggling, tugging etc... bought in black and have worn them with everything. Worth every penny!

I bought my Hunter boots from Zappos a few years ago. I take care of my belongings. The boots developed a white haze on them the first season. I read the Hunter product care instructions, but nothing really helped with the white haze long-term. I have learned to live with it. But this afternoon, I wore the boots outside in the yard for the first time this season. My feet got wet. Both boots have small cracks in the rubber that are letting the water in. Long story short, I am very disappointed. I have worn these boots probably 25 times, mostly in and around our garden, and have treated them with TLC. My husband bought cheap rubber boots from the hardware store when I got my Hunters and his boots are fine. No haze, no cracks. Stylish, yes. Hard-wearing, definitely not.

I love these boots. If you have a wide calf, they might not fit. I have 15 inch calves and they are snug but not tight. Great for days when I do not want to wear my leather boot. I bought Navy.

I ordered these in one size smaller as per the previous reviews but I ended up exchanging them for my normal size. The larger size just felt more comfortable and roomy to me. Also the larger size was easier to get on/off by myself. I wear them a lot and have gotten so many compliments on them. They are super cute and look great with everything. They are also functional in that I am out in the rain/mud a lot doing volunteer work and my feet stay dry and protected. Absolutely love my Hunters!

I'm pretty tall, almost 5/8, with long legs. These were just a bit too tall for me. When I crossed my legs the buckle caught on my tights.

I've had the Hunter Original in black for more than 6 years and they are still going strong! I have a long commute into NYC plus a lot of walking on a daily basis and they've held up so well I almost wish they'd wear down enough so I have an excuse to buy another pair in a different color. I actually don't mind the bloom that happens with these in the original, I like that it's a bit rugged. I've used these bad boys to shovel snow, trudge through flood waters after Sandy and run after my 2 little ones over the years. I'm 5' tall, 117 lb, 13.5" calves and usually wear a 6.5 shoe. In Hunters and Converse I size down to a women's 6. They fit comfortably over skinny jeans and I can wear 2 pairs of socks for when it's a bit colder and still have wiggle room in the toe box I've come to wear these in winter because they've got great traction but are lightweight. I can't believe it's taken this long, but I'm finally planning to buy the fleece socks to go with them. I've been hemming and hawing because I don't want them to make the calves too snug, but this winter's been a total beast!

I love my Hunter boots. I wanted to invest in my 5th pair, and was going to make Jade Green the next color to add to my collection, anticipating it would look much like the photographed Tiffany-Blue-ish shade. However, I should have listened to the name, because when they showed up at my door, they, indeed, looked very green. More like a dark olive green, to be honest. I will be exchanging, but only for a different hue. Still love my Hunters.

The legendary Hunter Wellies were outsourced in 2008. What used to last 20 years plus now only last 2 years tops. I already have a crack through the sole of both pairs leaving my feet cold and wet. These are so not worth the money.
