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 way too expensive, but I paid this much to get cute rain boots. They are still very dorky and clunky, but they look a lot better than any other rain boots that I have seen. So far they work great! They keep you very dry and are easy to clean when they get dirty.

I love the color of these boots, but unless you have TINY calves, your legs won't fit into these at all, let alone with jeans or pants. I tried them on and within seconds I knew I would be sending them back. I am going to try the Hunter boots that are adjustable in the back. Unfortunately, the adjustable ones don't come in this color.

I should have read the reviews on these because I just got them and they are HUGE on me! I usually wear an 8-8.5, so I ordered an 8 and I could probably wear a 6. I love the color and style and I want to get a size down, but I'm not even sure if it'll be enough, maybe 2 sizes smaller? I felt like I was wearing a size 10!

Got these in lipstick pink. Great vivid color, super high gloss. Scuff, bloom buildup, and high gloss are easily polished with armour-all and an old sock. I resisted the temptation to size down based on reviews. I got my usual size 9 and they fit perfectly when I add my own luxury wool insoles and woolie socks. If you size down, you may have trouble getting boots on and off. I can slip them off effortlessly. I have average calves and these boots have PLENTY of calf room with room to tuck jeans. I'm 5'7" and boots are right height. They only hit back of knee in squatting or extreme knee bending positions. Boot shaft is way more flexible and walkable than my Ralph Lauren plaid vinyl rain boots. You get what you pay for and these are worth the extra money. Cleaning off the chalky white bloom is easy and there are plenty of online instructionals on what products to use and how to keep your super gloss finish. I love these boots!

I bought these boots to wear in the rain and snow in New York City. I wore them for a little over a year, when they started to leak. Boots at this price, that are supposed to be the best, and they cracked at the ball of the foot, and were irreparable. I know at least five other people that this also happened to after owning their Hunter boots for a little over a year. I will never purchase them again.

I loved the look of these boots, but they were too tight on my calf so I returned. In their place I ordered the Balmoral and I'm waiting on those to arrive to see if the fit is better.

I actually have to return these beauties because they fit way too snugly on my calves. When I first got them, I immediately tried them on, and they ended up suctioning to my skin. I had a heck of a time getting them off. I didn't even think my calves were that big. I am sad.

My glossy black Hunters arrived today! Having read the reviews I ordered my regular size (9) and one size down (8). By mistake, Zappos sent an 8 and a 7. No problem! The 8 fits great and I can still easily wear a pair of very thick socks with them. Out of curiosity, I tried the 7 and sure enough could get them on, with socks but wouldn't have had quite as much room so I stuck with the 8. Would highly recommend ordering a full size down. My daughter found the same thing with her pair.

I have been in love with these boots forever and was so excited to finally order a pair. They are so stylish and being 5'7''I love the height of them. I also have pretty skinny calves (@13.5-14) and the calf circumference was good for me. A little roomy with leggings but enough room to comfortably wear skinny jeans & socks. Unfortunately after much deliberation they just aren't going to work for me. I wear a size 9-9.5M in almost every boot/shoe I own, so I ordered these in a 9 figuring I would have room for thicker socks. I was SWIMMING in a size 9, my skinny heels and ankles were flopping all over the place, so I ordered an 8 to compare. The 8s came and they were way too tight, my toes were at the very end of the boot even with thin or no socks on. I give them only 2 stars for comfort for this reason because I could not feel confident or comfortable walking in them in either size. I still give them 5 for style and 5 overall because I think they are very high quality, attractive, and the Graphite Gloss color is versatile for many outfits and more fun than basic black. If only Hunter would make 1/2 sizes, I am 100% positive an 8.5 would have been perfect for me. Sadly these are going back, as I just can't justify $140 on something that doesn't fit perfectly, no matter how cute! I will always admire these boots on others though. :)

I have had my boots for just over a year. After about 6 months of owning them the insole of the boots where my heel is began ripping. Just recently, I have found a hole on the bottom of the boot, as well as a tear by the toe of my other boot (where my toes bend when I walk). For the price I paid I expected them to last much longer than a year. I am not happy with the quality of the boot for the price you pay.

The tops of these boots are tight on my calfs, and I have skinny legs. They run a bit big in the foot but definitely could be a bit looser on the top. When I put in the boot liners I have trouble getting them over my calfs. I wish that I had tried them on in person before buying online. I bought the boot liners here at Zappos but not the boots so the return is not as easy as with Zappos. I will probably keep them but I would like to tuck my jeans into the boot liners and the boot liners into the boots and that is definitely tight on the calfs. The top of the boots seems to be more of a rectangle than an oval.

These boots came just as shown here. They're simple yet very stylish. I've worn them a couple times already in the short time I've had them. Went with the black because it is the most versatile and love them! Rubbed my heels slightly the first time I wore them but now they're fine.

I love my new Hunter boots, the fit is great. They are perfect for the deep snow as well for keeping your feet and legs dry in the knee high wet grass. Thank you Zappos for the great deal!

I could not decide whether or not to get gloss or matte. I did a lot of research, and discovered that the matte "blooms" after a while. I had no clue what blooming was so googled it. You should too if you're on the fence about matte or gloss. I saw before and after pictures of blooming. It almost looks as if the matte boot is covered in a white powder in various spots. (Not for me)...so I got the gloss. I love this lipstick pink. It's honestly a Barbie pink. It reminds me of the battery operated Barbie Corvette I had when I was little. My calves are normal size. Not skinny and not fat. They fit perfectly; they may even be somewhat roomy. Don't miss out on this fabulous lipstick pink color! You might regret it if it sells out!

My daughter loves these boots and they seem to be a very high quality. They are comfortable and she can wear them all day. She usually wears a 9 1/2 but ordered 9 instead of 10 (only full sizes) and the fit is perfect, even with heavier socks.

I purchased these for my 32 year old daughter for Christmas. The service was amazingly fantastic and I received them the next day. The problem: I ordered a US size 7 and received a US size 6. I asked her to come over (before Christmas which I had wanted to surprise her) and try them on and they fit. So I am suggesting you order down a size. She Loves these boots.

Nice boot but for those who have a bit of a thicker calf - they just won't work. Yet they are pretty large in the toe to heel area. Disappointed because they would be great for the rainy and snowy months of Chicago.

I bought these for my 17 year old granddaughter for Christmas and it is her favorite gift. I added the black cable socks with them and they are perfect with the granite glossy. Glossy is the preferred shine with young people. It appears my younger granddaughter wants these next year and I will again order from Zappos. Fast service and no shipping charges.
