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!

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!

Wonderful - gave them as a Christmas gift to a friend. She said she had been looking and couldn't find a pair of black shiny knee high - and was absolutely thrilled and put them on immediately. Would highly recommend, put them on you are instantly an 8 year old wanting to splash in some rain puddles with a smile ear to ear. I own a pair of school bus yellow ones and splash in the puddles - and I am 61.

I bought these boots with the intention of wearing on my walks to work when it is raining or snowing. I have worn them about 5 or 6 times since purchasing and am satisfied with my purchase. I usually wear an 8.5 or 9 but I followed the advised sizing and ordered an 8. Since it has recently been very cold I have been using the Hunter fleece sock and my feet have stayed warm. Overall my feet stay dry and warm which was exactly what I was looking for. The only negative would be that there is not much support and when wearing socks and the fleece liner it's a very snug fit. This really only bothered my feet and legs on a day where I walked more than 4 miles. However, I did not buy these for walking long distances so that is not a huge problem for me.

Bought a pair each for daughter and daughter in law. Both love these boots. Very versatile and so cute on. Not clunky or sloppy. In the Pacific northwest these are a must have.

Bought these for my wife for Christmas and she LOVES them. She was admiring a couple friends' pairs and hadn't stopped talking about them since. They do run a little big, so we went a size down for her and they fit perfectly. She gets tons of compliments and wears them all the time now.

Love the boots. They run very wide though so if you have a narrow foot you will swim in these (I feel like I could step out, but they do not come in narrow). The length runs a little long but that is mentioned in sizing. But otherwise they are a great rain boot.

Really wanted these boots for the cold rainy days of winter/spring but the calf was too tight. I noticed what appeared to be a buckle in the image but unfortunately it is more decorative than functional.

I found this boot to be very true to size. No size down was needed as I read about in a few other reviews. Especially if you want to wear a moderate sock. LOVE my Hunter boots! Thanks so much!

I love these boots. They are stylish and practical for inclement weather. I had originally ordered my usual size 7 but found them to be huge and had to reorder a full size down to 6. My calf size is 14.5, so I was a bit concerned that they may be too tight. The fit is okay albeit a little tight with jeans, but still doable. I'll mostly be wearing them with thinner leggings so it'll be perfect. I highly recommend them!

Just received these boots from Christmas in the graphite gloss. They aren't too glossy and are a good neutral color. I usually wear a 6.5, got these boots in a 6. With thick socks, they fit pretty well. With thin socks, they are too big. They will be good to wear with skinny jeans or cords and thick socks, but not so good with tights and skirts when commuting. I think going down to a size 5 will be too small, so I'm planning on keeping them.

I bought the glossy red and I love these boots! They are a bit roomy so I do advise to order half a size down. These keep my feet nice and warm and most importantly, dry! They are functional, practical and really stylish.

I absolutely love these boots! I ordered them a size smaller than I normally wear because they run a size big. They are very comfortable and I have had tons of compliments on them.

I've been eying these boots for a while and finally splurged on them! They're excellent - totally worth every penny. Like other reviewers said, they do run a little large. I'm typically a 7.5 but decided to size up to the 8 for extra room in case I wanted to wear big socks. They are narrow on the calf, so keep that in mind too when considering these.

These are so stylish but they are too tight for my athletic calves. If I wear them with socks or tights only, I can pull them off no problem. Forget jeans!

I absolutely love these! I listened to all the other reviews about going down a size and I have muscular calves so I wasn't sure but I went ahead and did. I ordered a 7 when I am normally an 8. I got them in and they were so tight on my calves I didn't think I would be able to get them off. So I returned them, which is super easy and free with Zappos, and got a size 8 which is what I normally wear and they fit so much better! They are a gorgeous deep red and I get compliments on them all the time! This is my first pair but if they prove to be durable, I will definitely buy another color!

If you have big calves, do not order these boots. They will not fit you. I liked the way they looked but I could not get them on so I cannot review it otherwise.

I love these boots! They definitely run at least half a size up. My right foot is a 10 but my left is more like a 10.5, and I often have to buy an 11. But for these I bought a 10 and they are very roomy still, even with socks on. They look great with everything!

Love, love, love my new boots! Definitely go down a size if you're a half like myself. The only thing that could be considered negative is the side strap doesn't always stay down. First day I wore them, it was wet slushy & awful out, but I stayed dry & warm. Didn't hurt that I got stopped often with compliments...:) Zappos was so quick with my delivery and packaging was pristine. First time using them & will not be my last!

Absolutely in love with this boot! Feels great to walk in because of the support and goes with all of my outfits. The plum color is a great alternative to black or gray and adds a pop of color!
