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!

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 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.

I got my order in two days! I love Zappos. These boots were the top thing on my 17 year old daughter's Christmas list and I was so relieved to find them, have an easy time ordering them and then get them so quickly. Since they were for her though, I do not know all the answers to the other questions asked about the fit and comfort.

These boots came up very high on my legs. They fit right up under my knee cap, making it difficult to walk and I am 5'7". I have several pairs of boots in other brands and have never had an issue with them being too tight in the calf, but the Hunter boots were very tight. I was not able to wear them and sadly had to send them back.

Love the look of the Hunter original glass, but it's too tall for me (5'4"), making it awkward to walk. Sending back in exchange for the Huntress gloss, to give it a try.

My daughter wanted these for her 12th birthday. It is the hot thing where we live now. She loves them and they are practical, so yay. They fit true to size. We got the grey glossy ones - the kids like the glossy ones. They go great with all the leggings she wears. Size 8 felt true to size, but she is usually a 7.5.

I love these boots! They keep my feet so warm and toasty. I am an 8.5-9 and was conflicted about what size to order after reading some reviews. I ordered a size 9 to be sure I could fit leggings and/or pants underneath in addition to to the welly socks. They fit perfectly. The original gloss looks great too!

Love them! I am an 8.5 and have pretty narrow feet. According to Hunter, I should have gotten and 8, but the 8 rubbed on my toe, so I exchanged for the 9. It's a little loose, but I put some thermal foot pads in (bought at a sporting good store), and wear with thick socks, and they are perfect! Keep my feet warm and dry. Only 4 stars because I desperately wish they came in half sizes, and I also wish they had a narrower calf or adjustable option to accommodate skinny legs. As for those of you between gloss and matte, I chose the gloss because (according to several friends), the gloss rubber will eventually 'bloom' and get a little chalky making it look matte, so I figure I'm getting the best of both worlds...glossy for a year or two, then matte until it's time for a new pair. :)
