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!

It was common to hear they ran big, however I found that inaccurate. I had to return them for my normal size. They are a little heavy, don't try and walk a marathon in them. Touring style are lighter. Overall I love these boots, more so for the ascetics.

I spent a lot of time debating original or adjustable? I have athletic calves and the original was simply too tight for the way I wanted to wear my pants legs inside of the boot. Plus they were difficult to remove once on. I ordered the Dusty Petrol color which I did think was very attractive! Be careful they do run large...I wear between a 8.5-9 and I ordered a 8; there was plenty of room to accommodate socks.

I normally wear a size 12, and got these in a size 11 and they fit just fine. I can wear regular socks with them. They are comfortable and very stylish. Adds some color to rainy slushy days.

I had been searching for the perfect shade of red Hunter boots and wanted them to have a matte finish. Well, I was having 'no such luck'. I resorted to ordering the glossy pillar box red. Can I just say, "Wow!" These are it! These are the exact shade I have been wanting and they are hardly glossy...just enough to make them pretty! I'm in love! (Sidenote: I typically wear a 9.5/10 shoe and always order a 9 in Hunters.)

I am a true size 7.5 in all shoes. Sometimes, I have to go down to a 7 but I rarely ever wear a size 8 (except maybe in sneakers). So after reading all the reviews that said to order down, I ordered a size 7. The size 7 was okay if I wore a thin pair of socks, but I wanted to be able to wear these in the snow with the Hunter boot socks or thick wool socks. These socks made the boots too small so I returned them for a size 8. When I received the 8s, they fit with the thick socks but seemed significantly taller than the 7s. I am only 5'3" and the boots cut into my mid-knee, which was uncomfortable when walking and especially sitting. I really wanted to love these boots; they seemed high in quality and were very cute but are unfortunately not good for short people! I ended up returning them and getting the Original Tours, which are slightly shorter but even a kids pair probably would've been better for me.

I bought these for cleaning the duck barns, so far they are working wonderfully. My feet and legs stay dry in wet and dirty conditions. The rubber is soft and comfortable to wear. The tread is adequate to keep good footing. I actually wore through the bottom of my Boggs, so expect to put some miles on these. I hope they are up to the task.

So happy I bought these boots! I ordered both a 5 and a 6 since they run big. I am a consistent 6.5 in most shoes- the 5 was a perfect fit with little wiggle room and super tight with the wellies, therefore I opted to keep the size 6 which is a little big, but feels great with the welly socks that were just too cute!

Love these boots. The red is great and I get a ton of compliments on them. They're comfortable to wear all day, though a bit on the warm side so I'm not sure how that will be once the weather gets warmer. I am usually an 8 1/2, but because of other reviews I got a size 8 and they fit perfectly. Highly recommend.

Got the Graphite 1, beautiful! First pair of Hunter's and I'm pleased with my purchase. I'm usually a 7 but I kept hearing about they were a lot bigger so I ordered a 6. They fit great! Zappos is also fantastic by not forcing me to pay an outrageous amount for shipping.

Yay! Just got my Hunter boots yesterday. I just love, them. They're true to size. I wear a size 8 and they fit perfectly. Not too tight, just right. I ordered the black gloss ones. I just adore them. Will be ordering the graphite ones next. They're so stylish and you can wear them with any outfit. I love just wearing with my stretch pants or skinny leg jeans a vest and scarf. I'm dressed for the week-end. I highly recommend them.

Love these boots! Great, fun, fashionable boot for the rain/snow. Also, kudos to Zappos. The clear coating of the boot started to peel at the heel. I called Zappos and they had another pair at my doorstep the next day. No problems with the new boots. Awesome boot and awesome customer service!

Exactly what I expected...perfect Hunter boot. This is my first pair and I was concerned the shaft would be too high, but it hit me perfectly below the knee (I'm 5'5"). I was also hoping for a nice slim fit, and they're perfect! I have average size calves. I got the damsen gloss and the color is gorgeous...not too shiny, but a nice pop of color and sheen.

I wanted high rain boots and really liked the way that these look. I was a little concerned about the size of the calf as mine is about a 12½ and these boots are a 15 but since I usually wear them with jeans they look fine. I wear a 7 and bought a 7 and they are perfect. I could easily wear thicker socks if I needed to but they are not too big without. I love the fun blue color as well!

Terrific boots and love the color! They do get taller as the size increases, so if you are shorter than 5' 4", they might be too tall. I had to give them to my daughter.

Bought the red...great for Atlanta winter rains and have certainly received lots of compliments whenever I wear them. Seem a bit wide and tempted to buy the Expensive Hunter boot socks instead of wearing my heavy wool ski socks that still do not fill the space...but then again...expensive pair of socks....hummm.

I read the reviews and bought a 1/2 size up from my regular size. I love these boots. Very comfortable and move with your legs when you walk as opposed to pulling your foot in and out of the boot as other brand do. Wear them all the time!
