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!

These are wonderful rain boots. They are waterproof and comfortable. I have already worn them twice for long walks in the woods with my dog and my feet remained warm and dry. I am 5'4" and normally wear a 7½ or sometimes a 7 and my foot is a bit on the narrow side. The size 7 was perfect. I am not sure why others complained about them being tight in the calf. I am slim with small to slightly muscular legs and the boots are perfect with jeans tucked into the fleece Hunter liners. There is still plenty of room to spare. I have done a couple of 1 mile walks in them in comfort, but they might be a bit heavy for anything more than two miles.

I bought these for my daughter to wear on a trip to New York. She absolutely loved them! Not only did they look great, but she never complained that her feet hurt! We walked everywhere, even in the rain. The only complaint she had was her feet were wet at the end of the day, sweaty feet not rain, she did not wear absorbent socks. They are excellent rain boots! Wear absorbent socks, as there is no air circulation.

Great boot, fit nicely and very attractive. I wear an insole support which makes them very comfortable. Not made for cold weather though, my toes get cold very fast. And a bit hard to get off. Other than that I like these boots quite a bit.

Brands I'd also recommend: Baffin snow & cold weather rain boots, not as attractive but much warmer.

I was excited when I got the boots. I wanted to get these boots for months. Got the boots took a few steps with them, and noticed that the top of the boots were hitting the back of my thigh and it was so uncomfortable. Because I wore them outside only for 10 seconds I knew I couldn't return them back to Zappos so I had to call Hunter boots and they told me they will inspect them and exchange them for the huntress which is 2 inches shorter then the huntress. I am 5 feet tall so I guess I am too short to wear the Hunter Original. :(

These are definitely for those heavy rain days. There are no insoles for the foot to have cushioning. I need heavy socks for cold days but, they definitely look great.

I ordered the high gloss black boots but when they arrived they were not nearly as shiny as the boot in the picture. They actually do not look glossy at all despite the correct label on the box. I ended up keeping the Hunter Regent style in black high gloss because it was glossy and looked a tad more chic. I was shopping for a rain boot to wear to work and I felt like the Hunter Regent style looked more professional. The bottom of the Regent was less contoured and it was an overall sleeker looking boot. The Hunter Original is definitely a more casual look.

Tried these on in store and found the fit of the boots I received to be different. Without socks these are roomy but with socks one boot hits the back of my ankle and hurts. When I felt the inside of the boots I could feel a difference in quality between one boot and the other. The seam area on one boot was larger and they didn't connect to the heal very well. They are terrifically cute but I need comfort and am disappointed. Have tried the Sperry, they run narrow, tried the Hunter, now going to try Kamik and pray they fit well.

Though the calf is narrow, it wasn't as bad as most made it sound. I am an average size woman, and was able to fold my boot cut jeans and wear them inside the boot. I ordered the extended calf and the regular, only to return the extended calf not needing the room. I did go up a size, from a 9 to a 10, and that might have helped. I live in Michigan, and the boots with and without the Welly socks are great. I simply adore them. They are stylish, comfortable and keep me dry and warm. Great boots.

Hunter gloss all the way! I purchased in navy a few months ago and also got the insert shortly after so I could wear with skirts in colder weather. Sometimes the one buckle comes undone and the boots have rubbed and left marks on the other, but I'm fine with some wear because these are attractive and effective for rain (and snow, with how I wear them) boots.

The best rain boot! I bought JCrew boot, but it was so uncomfortable, I decided to return it and bought this hunter brand. Hunter boots are expensive, but it is so worth it! Love my rain boot! It is very comfortable and stylish.

I love these boots! They are very stylish and practical for snow and rain conditions. I am typically a size 10, but ordered a size down based on other reviews. I found that with the welly sock the boot was way too tight so I exchanged them for a size 10 and they are perfect!

If Hunter Boots are good enough for Her Majesty... Not sure of her style, but I love these Black Original Gloss! They fit well but run a little big so order the next whole size down. (I usually wear an 8.5 but took others' advice and ordered an 8 rather than a 9.) They're spiffy without being too shiny. Hoping for some rainy days just so I can sport them!

I love these boots! They are so stylish and more importantly, get the job done in the rain. I also looked at the Huntress boot, but preferred these since I was able to comfortably wear them with my jeans. I have smaller calves but was concerned after reading the reviews. I agree with buying the boot a half size down.

I love these boots - the color is beautiful and shiny! The size was true to my size. I am going to look into the inserts for some added warmth. Also Zappos delivered before I actually expected. I love Zappos!

These boots are simply amazing. I have had them for a year now (and about 6 months ago bought a pair of navy ones too) and love them to death. I wear them to the dog park all the time and then just wipe them down and their shine returns so I can wear them out shopping if I want. I took a ten day vaca to New Zealand and wore them almost every day of the trip, horseback riding, hiking, and even paragliding. They're that comfortable, people. I've submerged my feet in deep stream water as well and have no leaks. The only issue I sometimes have is my toes getting cold but that is minor. In terms of fit, I got the US 6/7 and they're a little loose in the foot but it's great because I can wear thick socks or the wellie fleece liner comfortably. My calves are slightly bigger than the average girl my height but they are not tight in the boot at all. Love these.

These are the gold standard in rain boots for a reason. Very stylish boots. Super comfortable for walking. A little tight over my (muscular) calves, but I can still work them on over skinny jeans.

I absolutely love these boots. I seize any excuse to wear them. "Oh, it might rain in the city next to us? I better wear my rain boots, just it case it comes our way." The height of these boots is great; it provides a lot of coverage and security. I am not worried about rain getting in my boots and getting my feet wet. They are attractive, comfortable, and all around wonderful. I wear a size 9, but I got a 9½ so that in winter I can wear thick socks with them. They fit great!
