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.

I purchased these boots in black and absolutely love them, but . . . the belt buckle broke after wearing a few times. Zappos was great and allowed me to return them. Awesome customer service!

These are way too expensive, but I paid this much to get cute rain boots. They are still very dorky and clunky, but they look a lot better than any other rain boots that I have seen. So far they work great! They keep you very dry and are easy to clean when they get dirty.

I should have read the reviews on these because I just got them and they are HUGE on me! I usually wear an 8-8.5, so I ordered an 8 and I could probably wear a 6. I love the color and style and I want to get a size down, but I'm not even sure if it'll be enough, maybe 2 sizes smaller? I felt like I was wearing a size 10!

I actually have to return these beauties because they fit way too snugly on my calves. When I first got them, I immediately tried them on, and they ended up suctioning to my skin. I had a heck of a time getting them off. I didn't even think my calves were that big. I am sad.

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.

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. :)

These are the best looking wellies out there, but I wouldn't say they are the most comfortable for all day wear. Two issues in particular for me: First they rub against the front of my calf. Wearing high socks can help with that aspect and in fact I think Zappos has a pair of socks specifically for this purpose although I've not tried them due to the price. Second, they are quite heavy. After a full day of walking around (a couple of miles worth) that can become fairly uncomfortable (for me causes shin splints). Still, I love these boots and they are GREAT for trekking through puddles and piles of snow. I have no idea how I got along without them for as long as I did! Also to note they can get a little grubby/waxy but the Hunter brand cleaner (I have the buffer sponge) works great to get them back to a shiny gloss again. I should note that I have the original version, not the "black gloss" version of the boot and the black gloss may not need the cleaner as much as the original ones.

These are really great, but they really don't fit that big. I wear an 8 in everything, sometimes even a 7.5, but I ordered the 7 since everyone said they run soooo big and they're just a tad too short. So now I have to order the 8 and see how they compare.

The color has a little more pink in it than I expected (expected a bold red since it's called Pillar Box Red). Additionally, I do wish it came in half sizes because the 9 was too short in the toes, and the 10 felt a little bit large. But, I love them nevertheless and, with a pair of heavier socks, they will wear just fine. So, I'm keeping the 10s.

I asked my mom to order the gray boots for my birthday and I was so excited to open the box. Unfortunately they didn't fit which was clinically depressing! I had read plenty of reviews before ordering so I ordered a size down as suggested, which was perfect. The problem was in the calf circumference. I didn't think that I had large calves and have never had a problem with boots before. I barely got them pulled up on my bare leg and my husband had to pull them off of me. So I'm sending them back and ordering the Huntress pair. Hopefully those will work, although they don't come in the cute gray color.

Love them! They run big! I normally wear a 6.5 and bought the 6 which is still roomie but the 5 was too small. people were concerned ab the calf size and I have more than enough room there. I can't imagine ppl's calves not fitting in these boots. great purchase! Would def recommend as a staple piece! :)

I loved this and bought them in my true size of 8. It is a little problematic if you want to tuck your pants in because they will be a bit wrinkled when you get the boots off - but I don't find them too tight. You definitely could not tuck your pants in to these with the wellie socks on though, which is a little disappointing. Overall, they cut a more feminine and polished look than your typical rain boot.

Overall, these are great. Keeps my feet dry and they look great with jeans. I feel like they do tend to feel heavy on your feet if you do a lot of walking.

These boots are very attractive (minus the large Hunter Logo label) They will keep your feet dry but will not keep them warm. They are too snug around the top to accommodate a pair of tall, warm socks. They have little to no arch support which made them uncomfortable after a full day on my feet. They might be okay to wear in spring weather (60 degrees+) for short durations. I'd send them back but it's been more than 365 days since I ordered them. I've only had opportunity to wear them once and was disappointed with the lack of warmth and comfort. If you order these boots, be sure to wear them around the house all day for a couple of days to make sure you want to keep them.

I'm glad I bought these. They do run a tad bit big, I bought the size 7 since that's what I normally wear, but with thin socks they felt a bit big. With the welly socks or a thick wool sock they fit perfectly. I also have athletic calves but I was able to fit into the original model without having to resort to the huntress, since that model doesn't seem as flattering. Looking forward to getting good use out of these.

These are good boots. They are pretty comfortable after you break them in. The gloss dresses them up so I wear them with cute skirts and tights.

Great boots. Unfortunately, the gloss scuffs up a bit more than I'd like, but I have to admit that I'm pretty tough on my shoes. I ordered down half a size and still have plenty of room for welly socks. Don't know if I'd say they're worth every penny, but these are definitely some very comfortable rain boots.

I had never really needed rain boots until I moved to college in a town that experiences heavy rainfall. I wanted something that would protect my calves as well as my feet, was durable, and would look cute. I have wide feet, large calves, and I'm 5'5". Because I have short legs, these come right up to my knee, so I experience a bit of discomfort because they will press into the back of my knee. However, these have just enough room for my calves, and I can even wear jeans tucked into them. The bright purple color is a great way to brighten up my outfit on a grey rainy day. I have owned these for 3 years, and they are still completely waterproof and look great. A great investment!

I love the look of these boots! I'm 4'11" with athletic calves (15"). I usually wear a 5-1/2 or 6 so I ordered the 5; the fit on my calves were fine but the fit on my ankles were just not right as it "folded in." Also, the height of the boot doesn't work for me. When I walk, the top of the boot would hit the back of my knees. This also goes for the adjustable Hunters.

I can only give 4 stars because for the price these should have a better insole. Adding SuperFeet liners made a big difference - more support and warmer. Great color!

I've had my eyes on these boots for a few months but was debating whether or not it was worth it to spend so much on a rain boot. I decided to find a store that sold them and try them on in person before shelling out the cash for them through Zappos (they were cheaper online). I usually wear a size 6 pretty much across the board and the 6 boot is even a little big. Everyone says that these boots run a whole size larger; I would say these boots run more like one and a half times larger than normal. If they sold half sizes, I would have ordered a 5.5 but the 5 was just too tight in the toes. I'm going to pair it with a pair of Welly socks and see if that does the trick.

I had ordered the wrong size several times as thought I could enter the correct US size and it would translate to other sizes; it didn't. :) Anyway, I finally received the correct size and these boots are fantastic. They are very true to size and comfortable.

I love my Hunter Boots! They can be worn in all weather climates and are versatile for various activities. These boots are the most comfortable, breathable, rubber wellies I have ever worn. I highly recommend purchasing a pair!
