I absolutely love my new Hunter Gloss Boots. It took me a while to find the right pair but now that I have them I am so happy. I originally ordered the Original Hunter boots in black and I got the wrong size. I wear a size 7 but ordered a 9, do the UK sizes. Then I returned them and ordered a UK size 5 which is a US size 7. I wore them once and they started to turn a light gray from the natural rubber that they were made of. (A disclaimer is attached to the boot.) I didn't want to have to clean them each time I wore them due to the Chicago winters. I wish someone would have told me about the non gloss finishes and how they are a little more upkeep. If I would have known that I would have went for the glossy ones to begin with. FYI they are not super shinny, but just enough!

So happy I finally ordered these - they honestly make me feel better about rainy days. The are super cute with skinny pants or leggings and if you get the welly socks they can double as a snow boot! Expensive, but I think they worth it.

Love these boots! I am petite, 5'2", narrow calves. I was afraid these boots would be too tall and my calves would swim in them, but they're quite comfortable. I can sit on a chair without the backs digging in. I sit on my heels a lot though because I have toddlers, then the backs do dig in. They're soft enough that it doesn't bother me. They look great and perform well in the wet, mucky streets of NY.

I just got my black hi-gloss wellies and I am in love! I'm going to be trampin' around this campus like it's nobody's business. Perfect for the crazy snow and slush, especially with welly socks! I debated over getting these for a month, and I caved, and thank goodness!

I love these boots. I've been looking at them for over a year and could not justify paying the money for a pair of rubber boots, but I finally bit the bullet and did it. I'm so glad I did. It rains a lot in Seattle so needless to say, I've worn them a lot this season. I'm a true size 8; I ordered a size 8 and it fits perfect.

This is the best shoe! I had been wanting these boots for a while, but the price kept putting me off until I decided to just order them, and I have never been happier. Wore then on a weekend trip where it rained, and my feet never got sore either, even after hours of walking. They are boots that will not go out of style and I have been wearing them more often than just in the rain, due to their comfort and warmth. I am a solid size 8 (sometimes 8 ) shoe and ordered these in a 7 and my toes still have room to move. Great purchase! I get a ton of compliments!

I bought these in violet. The first day I wore them I got about 10 compliments. They are really cute and fun for a rainy/snowy day. I have larger than average calves but with a heel booster inside I have no problems and can still tuck my skinny jeans in. They have also loosened up with continued wear. These do not look cheaply made as other reviewers suggest. Rather they are much nicer than cheaper rain boots, which I always stayed away from because of the "rubbery" look. They are also super comfy for all day wear. I also ordered a pair in eggplant but they did not fit right because of a smaller size. Those were not as shiny as the violets but had a more rugged outdoorsy look that was still super cute. And, if the style were not enough, you can tromp through puddle after puddle without worry. Highly recommend!

I loved the color of these boots, and I had a hard time locating them. But, Zappos was very helpful and found a pair in my size. I was pleased with the quality when I received them, and they were true to size. They cover the whole bottom of my leg so that my pants won't get wet in our torrential downpours. They are great.

Super comfy and cute boot! I had read that they are quite narrow in the leg, but I have plenty of room in my calves even with jeans tucked in. I love them!

Much more comfy than a typical rubber boot and oh so stylish. I usually wear a 7 -8 and the 7 fit perfectly with room for a thick pair of socks! Watch out dog park, your mud is no threat to me now.

I purchased these boots about 6 weeks ago in black. I love them, and I get lots of compliments. They work great with skinny jeans and some casual skirts. I wear them all of the time. I have not had any issues with discoloration others have mentioned. I usually wear a 7.5 in heels and sandals and an 8 in boots (so I can wear heavy socks). These fit perfectly in an 8.

The sizing conversion not really correct - 8US is 38 European, so if you are 8US- you would like 38 European from Zappos. Great quality and so cute boots!

LOVE these boots! Needed to invest in some good quality boots for when I go off to college. Very comfortable from what I've felt but haven't tested them in the rain yet. They are not as glossy as they appear in the picture, which I was initially disappointed by, but all in all they are a great shoe. Pretty loose around the ankle area, so easy to slide on and leaves a lot of room for socks. The tread on the bottom of the sole is great too.

I read many reviews on these particular boots before buying them and just about every review said to buy 1 size smaller than you typically wear. I decided to go ahead and get an 8 (I usually wear 8.5). They are definitely big on me but with a thick pair of socks they are perfect and fit very comfortably! I love them! They are practical but still fashionable. I already want a second pair in a different color.

Quality is excellent. Boots rise to just below my knee. Need to wear them with leggings because jeans will not fit down inside boots. Very comfortable, too :)

These boots are fantastic! I love the bright color and they are quite comfortable, despite the lack of arch support. I received a ton of compliments when I wore them to work and, beyond the good looks, they are very functional in a nasty rainstorm.

I usually wear an 8½ in heels and running shoes, but got an 8 in these and that worked great. Beautiful color, sturdy, and it is so much fun to jump in puddles again. Great boots - I am going to enjoy our lifetime together!

These boots are great and stylish, too. I love the height and the faux buckle. They are pretty comfortable as well and keep my pants and shoes from getting ruined in the rain.

I bought the Original Gloss in RED and I looooooove them!! Do not buy Hunters in a full size larger like several customers have recommended. I felt that the fit was TTS , perhaps a wee bit larger but with heavy socks, a perfect fit! I normally wear size 6 and the size 6 wellies fit me just fine with room for heavy socks. The quality is fantastic. Red looks great with black clothes/rainwear as well as jeans and a classic trench in tan or black. I also think you should have fun with these Hunters and I highly suggest purchasing a fun color, like teal, red or violet- it gives a punch of color especially fab on a dreary, rainy day!

Oh, how I pined over these Hunter boots for nearly three wet and snowy fall and winter weather seasons! Now, since I\'m living in a downtown urban environment, I expect a lot more walking -- and with 6-7 months of miserable weather, at least my boots can be awesome! \r\n\r\nAnd keep my feet dry and warm. \r\n\r\nDon\'t waste money on poorly made, leaky boots every year. Make the investment (in a color that will make your gray days a little more sunny). \r\n\r\nI found these true to size, even with my muscular calves, but I definitely recommend purchasing the boot liners. I didn\'t at first, and even with socks and tights, the seemed to "stick" to my legs rather uncomfortably. \r\n\r\nThey DO take some time getting used to walking in, especially on steps and curbs.

Brands I'd also recommend: NONE! Nothing beats Hunter.

I have been wanting a good rain boot for a long time and finally decided to splurge. I have only worn these once so far but love them. They are comfortable and look great. I suspect they are indestructible based on the solid feel of the boot. If you are a half size buy the smaller size. They are fairly easy to get off although you do have to tug a bit.
