These are excellent rain boots! I love the bright red color. They really spruce up what could be a dull outfit in a rainy or wintery season. They do get the white powder on them, but that was not a major concern. The boots do run big, but if you are trudging through snow or rain, you will want to wear heavy socks, anyway.

These boots are great. It's my first pair and and I walked around the city in them all day and my feet did not hurt. There is arch support which is great. Only negative issues, luckily I have narrow calves, or else these would Not fit well. Also, if you are shorter than 5'4" I would not purchase. They are pretty tall and may cut into the back of your knee.

The Hunter boots are awesome. They do run a bit large, but that is comfy since I want to wear thicker warm socks with them for our rainy weather here in the Pacific Northwest. I want to comment that Zappos has the best customer service on the planet! When I called to ask them about one of the buckles that didn't seem to be right, they immediately shipped out another pair with no questions asked. They wanted my boots to be perfect. The Zappos person on the phone was courteous, professional, kind and apologetic! Wow! I want to work for a company like Zappos that cares this much about one customer who purchased one little item. I am a customer relations manager and Zappos sets the standard for how to treat customers.

I ordered a size 8, which is what I normally am and the fit was fine. There was enough room for thicker socks. The color, however, is a lot more purple than they look in the photo. The photo shows them as having a reddish tinge, but they are just purple. I was a little disappointed in the color.

I'm a numbers person, so I'll use numbers to structure my review with the hope it's more helpful! I'm a 5'4 female with a 9.5-10 sized foot. I have wide feet and average (15 in) calf size. I ordered a 9 and 10 just to be sure I had the correct size. The 9 is perfect. Hunter does not recommend buying a size above or below your normal shoe size! They make the boots slightly larger to accommodate varying thicknesses of socks. The 9 is perfect! I've tried the boots on with thin tights, cotton socks, and thick wool socks. I'm able to walk comfortably in all three types of socks. Yes, there's obviously more room with tights vs. wool socks, but I'm still happy with the fit regardless of what sock I'm wearing. I also tried the boots on while wearing skinny jeans and did not feel cramped in the calf area.The boots hit me below the crease of my knee, so the boot height is not an issue. I'm really glad I didn't order the Huntress as they would've cut me off mid-calf, leaving my legs looking chunky. The Original style makes my legs look taller. If calf size isn't an issue for you, I suggest purchasing the Original vs. Huntress.

Military Red gloss original Hunter's can't be beaten! I also have them in lipstick pink but this RED is to die for. It's true brilliant red. No hint of orange, not faded or coral. It's a perfect punchy color and so great for Fall and Winter. LOVE! Shines up with armour-all (to remove the white bloom).

First off, I love these boots! I got the Hunter Original Gloss in Graphite. I debated on what size to get...I typically wear a 7.5. I read lots of reviews that said to size down. I would agree with that as long as you do not plan on wearing the Hunter Fleece Socks with the boots. I ended up keeping the size 7 only because I decided that I wouldn't wear the fleece liners with the boots. If I were planning on wearing the fleece liners, I would definitely have kept the size 8. So, keep that in mind when deciding whether to size up or size down.

I wear a 71/2 normally and ordered a 7. The boot fits perfectly. Maybe an 8 would've been better for thicker socks and breathing room. Otherwise they look great and I receive compliments every day I wear them. They feel thick and seem to be quality rain boots so far, but I have only had them for a month.

If you've never owned a pair of Hunters, do yourself a favor and get these now! Very comfortable and stylish. I love this color because it is a good neutral.

I was debating for a few months on whether or not I should buy these boots. I am so so happy I did! They are even more beautiful in person and are perfect for rainy days and slushy Wisconsin winters. After reading a few of the reviews saying they run large I decided to order a size down (I am normally an 8 and I ordered a 7). The size 7 boots were too small with thick socks. I was disappointed but exchanging them for a size 8 was so incredibly easy. Within 24 hours I had my new boots! If you're on the fence about these boots, get them! They are well worth the price!

I ordered the Hunter Regent boot in black gloss, and just loved them when they came. They were a perfect fit. I wore them a couple of times (just in the rain...nothing strange) and then the season changed and I didn't wear them again for a year. When I went to put them on after after several months, the black gloss had faded to dull grey streaks? They are now pretty ugly and I wouldn't wear them outside. I would not recommend anyone to buy this boot.

We bought these for my husband's assistant who is a senior at UW LaCrosse. She cried and sobbed when she opened them. She has wanted these for awhile. She is extremely happy with them and loves them.

These boots are very cute. I had a chance to wear them once so far, they were very attention grabbing because they are so glossy. It was what I wanted though. Very tall boot, however, and difficult to take off.

Love these boots! I don't know now why I waited so long to buy them. They are pricey but oh so worth it. Sizing - I wear 6 1/2-7 and ordered a 7, they fit perfectly. You probably could not get a thick sock on under them, but it doesn't get that cold here to need the heavier socks. I ordered the military red in gloss and they are exactly as pictured - true to color. I would recommend these to anyone, and am thinking about ordering another pair in black or grey. Let it rain, let it rain!

Love the style and color of these boots but, I was highly disappointed when the boots were way too narrow in the calve. I am a soccer player and have semi muscular legs but, these boots are far too narrow in the calves. Someone must have to have chicken legs to fit into these boots.

I ordered these boots in both the 8 and 9. I am usually an 8½ (39) which should be the 8 according to Hunter's guide. The foot size seemed correct in the 8, even though I had some trouble sliding my feet in. However, the major problem with these boots is that the calf area is way too tight in both sizes. I am a runner so I have fairly muscular calves, but I think that my calves are in proportion with my foot size! I have had this problem with many different brands of rain boots, too. I will try the Hunter with adjustable back next!

Brands I'd also recommend: Burberry (if you Hunter fits your calves!)

I usually wear an 8.5 shoe and a 9 in boots but after reading reviews I was really confused on which size to order since half of the reviews said to size down and half of the reviews said the boots were true to size. I ordered both an 8 and 9 since Zappos is awesome and does free shipping and returns! The 9s were true to size but would have been too tight to wear with thick socks or welly socks. Also, I have a 15 inch calf and there was just barely enough room for a pair of leggings. It wouldn't have fit comfortably. I am returning both pairs for the adjustable back pair. The boots are great quality, but the Original just didn't work for me.

I ordered these in the Blue Lily when I saw them for the awesome sale price of $90! I did take note of the measurements prior to ordering, but figured I could always return if they didn't work out. I wear a 7 1/2 in most shoes. I read many reviews that suggested to order down, but I ordered an 8 simply because a 7 was sold out at the time I purchased them. As far as the footbed, an 8 worked fine for me. It was a little big, a 7 1/2 would have been perfect if they had half sizes, but a 7 would have been way too tight and would not have allowed me to wear thick socks in the winter months. Ultimately, I had to return these because the calf was just too tight. There is absolutely no stretch in these boots, so don't order thinking you can make it work because that's what I thought! I love everything about these boots, I just wish the calf area was larger. I will return this Original pair for the Huntress style, which has a calf of 16 1/2 inches, but am disappointed they do not have the Blue Lily color in those. If you are able to fit these boots, you will love them! They are so comfy and well-made. Just note the measurements before your purchase!

I normally don't have a problem with calf width on taller boots; however, these were unusually narrow. However, the footbed was comfortable. Sadly after wearing for a day, I'm not able to return.

While the boots LOOK nice, I had to return as they were caked in mud. Not the first time Zappos has sent me very worn and used shoes. Additionally, the Hunter box was banged up and aged, a sure sign when I opened the package that the previous owner took full advantage of Zappos' generous return policy.

I wear a 9.5 and after reading all the comments about the boot running large, I ordered a 9 and it's too tight. I loved the glossy grey color, so I'm sending it back and getting a 10.

I absolutely love the color! I ordered the Clementine color. The shoe size was spot on, I wear a 6 1/2 and I ordered a 6, the shoe fit was great. The problem was the shaft of the boot. It fit, but it was too tight and after wearing it for a few minutes, it became uncomfortable. I've ordered various Hunter boots and had to return them because either the boot was too big or the shaft was too tight. The Huntress seems to fit me the best. It's just too bad the colors are so limited. I'd like a bright orange in the Huntress. I'll be returning these too.

These boots are so awesome. I fell in love with the color and wear them just about anytime it even sprinkles! I get compliments on them all of the time. They are a tad bit hard to break in, but you just have to keep wearing them. Buy one size down, as they are sized large! I would also wear them with thinner things like skinny jeans and tights as they can get a bit hard to stuff pants into if they are thicker.
