Zappos requested I help out and always being the type of person, I obliged. I purchased these for my girlfriend, so I can't really comment on the fit and feel. Being a dude, I don't really understand the looks and to be quite honest, all boots look the same to me. However, I will say that boot have brought me great joy. My gf finally stopped dropping hints about these things and also complaining about her wet feet. In addition I got some sweet loving for an entire week. After doing some math, it's actually a pretty good return on the investment considering my alternatives.

The shoes were cute. But fit awful. Although the calf was wide enough, the ankle was huge! And when I'd walk the all the extra material around the ankle would bend...making my feet look disgusting, misshaped, and really fat.

Love these boots! I received the green color as a gift, and they make me look forward to rainy days. They look cute with skinny jeans and skirts, and I have no problem with the fit. They have plenty of room around the calves (I have fairly athletic legs). I was afraid they wouldn't be as stylish as the normal hunters, but they totally are, and I've gotten tons of compliments.

These are beautiful, well constructed rain boots, but they were much too tall and too wide in the calves for me. I am a 5' tall adult woman and I usually wear a 6, sometimes a 5½. These boots run a full size bigger than indicated, so I ordered the size 5. Wearing sport socks, the foot area was comfortable, not too snug and with room to wiggle my toes. However, the calf area was much too big, even with jeans tucked in. My bare calves measure 14½ at their widest. When I walked around, the shaft of the boots would literally "slap, slap, slap" my shin and calves! I think that if I used these with the cold weather welly socks, these boots would be OK, but I live in California and while it rains, it does not get that cold. Sport socks suffice for me. Another fit issue is the height of the shaft. I am 5' even, so the boot's shaft poked the back of my knees very uncomfortably when I went up the stairs. As a result, I had to return these. I ordered the size 3 kid's version (woman's 5 equivalent) and those fit perfectly! The kid's version has reflective tape on the back but that is OK with me since I figure that it keeps me safer when I am walking the dogs.

It's raining today and I cannot wait to wear my new rain boots! These boots really are great - fit my calf perfectly and look sharp, like all the other Hunter boots. I chose the green color because I thought they would prove to be more flexible with my wardrobe, and so far I haven't been disappointed! If you have larger calves like me and need at least a 16 inch circumference then I recommend these boots to you. Also after reading reviews I opted for a size 8 vs my usual 9 because they do run large. Even the 8 is roomy but that's good because it leaves room for thicker socks in the winter!

I have large calves and always have a hard time finding boots that fit. I really wanted the Original hunters to fit, but they didn't. :( When I saw these, made for wider calves, I was so excited! I read they ran a size bigger so I bought them in a size 8 (I normally wear a size 9). The fit was perfect! The big test was jeans, would my jeans fit in the boot? Yes! These boots are about 1.5 inches shorter than the original tall but it's still a nice tall boot. They look amazing with leggings and what I really love is that they bend, they are comfy, the sole is cushioned - everything my Kamik "Christina" boots were not. I bought the Kamik because they came in a large calve, but the rubber is so stiff, there is no support inside, totally flat and the sole is so hard. When I take the dog for long walks my feet/legs hurt. The rubber didn't bend and it was so annoying. I read a few reviews where ppl said the ankle was large and looked funny.. I guess as you are walking and the rubber bends, it could look like that, but in all honesty, all rain boots do that, they are rubber! I didn't find them any different in the ankle than other hunters I tried on (even if I couldn't get them all the way up)or any different than Kamik rain boots. So if you want a comfy, cute rain boot that fits large calves buy the Huntress you will not be disappointed!

I got these in black - they were true to size. After 8 months or so the buckle rusted and a side wore through to a hole, Zappos credited me the cost! Fantastic. The boots could use a gel insert because they hurt after standing 10 hours a day on concrete, but otherwise I prefer them over the Hunter originals. Also, don't order up in size! I made that mistake trying to replace these with the pink ones and they were huge.

I know I'm supposed to be writing a review about my Hunter Boots, but first just let me tell you how in love I am with Zappos! They are the best place to buy anything online! The customer service is betting than any customer service I have ever encountered including face to face in stores. My boots shipped perfectly and fit well! I've been looking for boots with a wider calf so I can stuff my pants over thick socks, and these worked out great! Mine were a tad big in the foot but once I put thick socks and Dr. Scholls in, they were perfect!

I bought the Huntress for my semester abroad in Scotland, and they more than paid for themselves! As someone who has 16" wide calves, I had a hard time finding rainboots that would fit, but these were perfect! I even bought the fleece liners to go with them for cold winter days. All around, a great product with high quality and durability. I would recommend purchasing half a size smaller than your normal size. You will not regret buying these!

I love my boots! If you have a wide calf you need to buy the Huntress not the Original. I have a 15 inch calf, and the Original was very snug. I returned them (super easy!) and got the Huntress, and they fit beautifully!

I love these boots. They are very comfortable and the Huntress style gives you extra leg room without looking bad. The sizing is weird; I am typically a 9 or 9.5 but I needed an 8 for this style. These are totally worth the money and feel like the best of quality, so I will definitely get my money's worth.

I tried the hunter boots and was so sad when they were fitting too snuggly around my calves-- but then I heard about the huntress and they are perfect. I wear them everyday now. They are comfy and stylish! Perfect for women who don't have twig calves.

They came exactly as described. I love the boots so much and it is great having boots wide enough to fit my calves. I have worn them for many hours at a time and they are pretty comfortable. One flaw would have to be the buckles on the side -- if you cross your legs when sitting it gets really uncomfortable. Otherwise they are great! Also order down a size!

I am so glad I ordered the Hunter Huntress. I have athletic muscular caves and the other Hunter boots were all too tight. I normally wear a 7, but ordered a 6 and they are still a little big. These fit great with room to spare! And as always, Zappos has the best customer service!

I thought I wouldn't be able to wear Hunters because of my muscular calves but then I found these! I'm 5'9", and have 16" muscular calves. While I'd like them even more if these boots were an inch or two taller, I'm just happy they fit over my calves and are comfortable to wear. I can tucks in my jeans and while there isn't any room to spare at the top, they fit comfortably. I have skinny ankles and, yes, these boots are overly roomy at the ankles, but not uncomfortably so. Again, I'm just thrilled to find tall rain boots that fit over my calves! I normally wear size 10 shoes, occasionally 9.5 and I went with 9 for these which is perfect.

I love these boots. They keep my feet dry, and are big enough around the calf for me. After looking at the other reviews, I ordered half a size down. I usually wear 9 1/2; I ordered a 9, and they're great. They do have a strong rubber smell to them for a bit though.

Great boots! If you are deciding between 2 sizes, I would suggest to go to the smaller size - they are very true to size - ample width too so you can wear warm, thick wool socks! I have muscular calves yet I can wear these over my jeans and stay dry! These boots are worth the price!

Love, love, love! These hunter boots are fantastic! I have athletic calves, and this version of boots fit perfectly, even over jeans. I couldn't be more thrilled. I also like that these boots actually fit my feet. Most rain boots I've tried leave my feet sloshing around inside. Oh, and I heart Zappos.com!

I had been looking for a traditional wellington that I could wear with thick socks to work in the yard. This fills the bill. Comfortable, goes to just below my knees for good splash coverage and has a generous calf for tucking in trousers. Great boot!

These are really great boots! First I ordered the originals, but were tight around my calves (I definitely wasn't able to tuck in my pants.) I returned them for the huntress and what a difference. Pants fit nicely in, but they are not way too wide either. The sole is comfortable and the little heel actually provides some cushion. Yes, they are pricey.. but worth it. The only negative is the sock liners are made to fit the original.. not the huntress. I wish Hunter would make a sock liner to fit the huntress wide calf boot (hint, hint!)

I've been wanting a pair of classic Hunter boots for forever, but didn't think they'd fit my calves. The Huntress boots are perfect! I have wider calves and often have trouble fitting taller boots, but these are a perfect fit and I'm pretty sure would even go over my skinny jeans. I wore them all day during a particularly stormy day, and they were comfy the whole day. Love these, and love the super-fast Zappos delivery! Size-wise, I felt they were true to size. I usually wear between a 9.5 and a 10, and ordered the 10. With socks, they fit perfectly. Absolutely recommend these well-made, stylish boots.

Last week I returned Kamik Naomi in wide width because they were not wide enough; Zappos emailed me about these, got them the next day. They fit! They are wide enough to tuck jeans in. I usually take a 7½W shoe, sometimes an 8M fits depending on style (I have a high instep, narrow heel, arthritic big toe joint and bunion). After reading reviews, I got the size 7. The footbed is not tight, but might put in a different or second insole. Some years ago I tried the Hunter style but they were not wide enough. Finally someone made boots for a wider calf, which actually are wider! I only wish the sock liners were made for these wider boots. In time, I hope.

I absolutely love my Hunter Huntress boots. It is usually hard to find boots with enough room to tuck my jeans in, but these are perfect. They are plenty wide enough for my very wide foot. These boots are well made and very comfortable. I was able to walk long distances and stand for hours in them right out of the box. Zappos was, as usual, a pleasure to work with. There is not a better company online.

Okay, I can honestly say I love these rainboots. I have very wide feet, they fit perfectly. I have larger calves; it's enough room for me to tuck my pants in. They run a whole size larger if you ask me. But overall I love them.

I bought these for my daughter for Christmas. She put them right on and would not take them off. She was so excited. She had tried to buy these before, but her calf was too wide. She is short and thin, and these looked great on her.
