I generally wear a 6 1/2 in shoes and a 7 in boots. Based on other comments I bought the size 6 which is perfect.

Loved them - however, I should have read more closely how tall they were and that they were tight around the top. I am 5'9" - but they hit me at my knee and were too tight around the top for me.

Love! They feel like a real boot when you put them on. The heel feels sturdy when I walk and not squishy when I walk like some rainbows. I am usually an 8, but I went down a full size, and I'm glad I did. The 7's fit perfect!

Beautiful color. So pretty. I almost kept it. Unfortunately, I'm 5'4'', 127lbs and these are too tall on me. They also rub on my calfs. Will buy shorter boots.

Got these for my granddaughter's graduation gift. She will be attending a large university in upper midwest. She will really need something for rainy, cold days in spring and fall. Her foot size is 8 1/2 but I ordered the 8 on advice of reviews and they fit perfectly with room for socks! She was thrilled and wanted to wear them immediately! I will add socks for her August birthday! Love Zappos!

I ordered these boots in black gloss. When the boots arrived, it looked as if the gloss was smudged. Upon further inspection, the gloss had actually rubbed off. I immediately exchanged the boots for another pair. Again, the same problem. I read many reviews on the gloss boots and none of the reviewers mentioned this problem. I am returning both pairs of boots. Each boot is not individually wrapped and are placed in the box side-by-side. I think the gloss is rubbing off during shipping because the boots are rubbing against each other. I am disappointed because the boots are super cute. I did go down a size, and they fit well. However, if you are planning on wearing these boots with heavy socks, then I would recommend a half-size down.

Love these boots...they actually make me look forward to rainy days! The bright color is awesome and I've gotten a ton of compliments. They are also very comfortable. My only complaint is they are a little snug on my calves...but I have large calf muscles and most knee high boots won't fit me at all for this reason.

Love these boots. After a month and probably ten wears, they're comfortable and keep me dry. They do scuff a bit, but I don't mind. It buffs out pretty easily on the glossy pair. I originally ordered the Hunter Huntress in matte green, and they were terribly (and unfixably) scuffed and huge, despite being the same size (8) as these. Plus, lots of people have the green pair, and these blue ones are more rare.

Another brand ruined by offshoring manufacturing to you-know-where. Now has a seam where there was not one before; sizing is off; and general quality, overall, about the same as other cheap rain boots.

This is the boot I've never had, but should've. I always wear 8 1/2, so thanks to the reviews I read, I chose to order down. The fit was perfect with ordinary walking sox. I wore them "in the field" (rainy, muddy, soggy, and boggy) where they were perfect. And I wore them for "casual" with jeans in the evening. I could not be happier.

I bought these for my 16 y/o daughter. She loves the color. However, they are very tight in the calf. My daughter is small, but muscular. I am not sure that the opening is 15 inches as stated. Other boots with a 15 in. opening fit her fine. I am disappointed that this color is not offered in the bigger calf opening style. May be returning these boots.

Love these boots! I've had more compliments in the last 2 weeks than any other rain boot I've ever purchased. Very durable and keeps your feet dry. As far as size, most people say to size down but if you're planning to wear these with the fleece sock I would stay true to size.

I have a pair of original hunters in the boa pattern. I have had them for 5 years and I loved them. Perfect rain boot and a bit funky. I basically wore them down, so I decided to get a new pair. I was a bit overwhelmed --- glossy or plain, original or huntress, touring? so many choices. I got the touring first and honestly they felt a bit flimsy. I wear my rain boots all the time, even when it is not raining because they are usually by the door and easier to put on for a quick run to the store, etc. So, I need a good sturdy boot. I returned the touring and got the huntress in glossy black -- way too big in the calf and hit at a weird place in the calf. So then I returned those (God bless Zappos and their return policy) and got the original in glossy graphite and plain military red. I LOVE the glossy graphite. It is a little interesting without being cartoonish. The original tall boot is sturdy, fits in the calves, and hits right below the knee. I am 5'5, with athletic calves (14.5in around) and I felt like the tall original fit perfectly. Could I stuff bell bottoms in there? No -- but skinny jeans, tights, and leggings would work just fine. I also like the fact that they hit right below the knee, so you are more protected and your legs look longer. I chose the gloss because it blooms less, but I don't mind a bit of blooming. It is rain boot -- it should not look immaculate. I am really excited to wear these boots for 5 years until I wear them down. A word about Zappos -- their customer service is amazing. They allowed me to do returns and I ALWAYS got my boots the next day, unlike some other retailers (ahem, Amazon). A+

I don't know why people say these boots run big because they don't. I wear a size 9, but based on reviews I ordered down a size, to an 8. My toes were hitting the front of the boots in regular socks so no way could I wear thick socks during cold weather. Order your normal size and you should be fine.

My teenage daughter loves these boots. She returned the black pair because she thought they looked dull. She took a chance on this color and she was so happy she did. They are colorful but aren't too bright and can be worn with just about everything.

I normally wear a size 9 or 9.5, so I first ordered these in a 9. They were disappointingly enormous on me, a good inches too long and very loose around my calves. I'm 5'9 and 125 pounds and am accustomed to boots fitting loosely on my legs, but these were too much. Zappos immediately shipped out an exchange size 8, which I was excited to find fit perfectly. They're still not right around my calves, but they look stylish with skinny jeans or dresses. I love the pillar box red color and have gotten endless compliments everywhere I go. Strangers are always stopping to tell me how much they like my boots - instant confidence booster and so fun to splash through puddles in as the snow is melting away!

Great for rain, snow and slush! I ordered up a size in these (usually a 9 but ordered a 10) and then ordered an UGG furry insole for the bottom of the boot. It was a little snug at first but quickly became perfectly comfortable. The insole gives that little extra cushion and warmth. I couldn't get over how warm the boots kept my feet with thin socks while walking through snow. Even after walking around the city for a few hours, my feet weren't overly tired like I thought they'd be. I highly recommend these boots (with or without UGG insole). Problem is now I want additional colors.

I love these boots, but I feel like they definitely run big. I bought one size smaller than my normal size and I think I could have gotten away with two sizes smaller.

I love the look of these boots. I am usually a 9 and I got an 8 for these and they fit perfect! I will say they keep you dry but are not warm at all. Overall a great boot but will probably need something warmer for next winter.

Love these and get compliments every time I wear them. I bought them in the Military Red color since it such a deep, true red color. I love it! Regarding size, I normally wear a 7 and that's what I ordered even though some folks say they run large. I knew I'd be wearing thick socks with them 99% of the time and they fit perfectly with a medium to heavy sock. If you want to wear something thinner with them occasionally, you can order the shearling inserts from Hunter (which is what I did) and use those when wearing hose/tights or thin socks. Then just remove the shearling inserts when wearing them with a medium to heavy weight sock.

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.
