They weren't for me, but I needed to match a rain coat. Great color! Great fit! Very happy!

The boots were absolutely gorgeous. The color was even more vibrant than I would've imagined, which I loved. Unfortunately, I have to join the group of reviewers whose calves are simply too big for Hunters. The left boot fit but the right boot was so small that it created a vacuum and it was almost impossible to get my leg out. I would still recommend these, however, since the construction was stellar and the color beautiful. If you think your calves might not fit, they're still worth a shot considering you can return them to Zappos for free.

Boots arrived lightning fast and look exactly as they did online. I wear an 8 (US) but ordered a 7 (US), and they fit perfectly. I am 5\'5\/120 and there is plenty of extra room in the calf to tuck in jeans, layer a few pairs of socks, etc. They come up to the bottom of the knee, which is very flattering, and I can sit comfortably in them without any issues. They have a satiny sheen, but are not glossy-shiny, which I was kind of hoping for - but I like them anyway. I have not had the opportunity to wear them in the rain yet, so I can\'t speak to their waterproof quality, but they are very comfy and the color is just as it looks online.

I got these for my daughter after her Chooka rainboots from Nordstrom's started cracking after only 4 months. So far they seem like great boots. My daughter wears them everywhere...even when it's not raining or snowing. I'm very happy with them thus far.

I am so happy I finally purchased these boots. I love them! Based on other reviews, I went down a half size. The 7 fit perfectly. I was worried because of some reviews about the space around my calves because I have athletic legs, but they fit without a problem. I don't struggle to get them over my skinny jeans. If you are contemplating buying these stop, just get them. You will be pleased and wishing for rain!

Zappos is amazing. I tried to find these boots at numerous stores and could not. I called Zappos and the customer service representative upgraded my shipping to next day delivery just in time for the huge thunderstorm. I love these boots. They are very comfortable and they come all the way up to my knee. They are so shiny and I get compliments on the color all the time!

I love Hunters but the Glossies are the best! Shiny from the minute you take them out of the box to the moment you return home after sloshing through the rain! I felt they ran a little small - I'd recommend ordering a couple pairs, to test them out - returning shipping is free!

I live in NYC/Manhattan and for a long time I wanted some boots that I could wear to slosh fearlessly through those giant puddles that accumulate at the intersections when it snows/rains really hard, but I also wanted ones that were at least semi-stylish and not like the "duck boots" I used to wear in college in New England. I read the reviews of these Hunter gloss wellies on Zappos and managed to try them on for size at my local store (which didn't carry the variety of colors) before buying them on-line. I usually wear a 6.5 US, have a slightly wide foot, rather flat feet, and don't always find the "size up/down" recommendations true for me for all shoes. I was also a little wary of other reviewer's comments that the shaft of the boot was too narrow/wide and too tall and dug into their knees if one were on the shorter side (I am 5' 3"). I eventually ordered the Gloss Black in Size 6.0 US and I am pleased to say that I am THRILLED with them! My calf circumference is 13 1\/2" and as a former soccer player, I usually find boots make my legs look chunky, but these actually make them look normal, if not somewhat slim (somewhat). The Gloss Black looks wonderfully like black patent leather and while they are of course utilitarian boots, with knee-length or shorter skirts (with tights in cold weather) they look adorable. I personally don't like the tucked-in-jeans-into boots look on me, but if I did want that I would go for a skinny jean. I also purchased a pair of the fleece socks for winter and they make the boots fit snug and cozy but not tight. I find myself actually looking forward to inclement weather just so I can wear these!

I have been shopping for these boots forever! I would decide I am getting a pair shop real hard for them then change my mind and decide to wait then look again. OK, you get the picture! They came pretty fast! I had done enough research I knew to go try them on to make sure I had the right size because of all of the reviews. Thank for the reviews! I got them last night and I wore them to cook dinner. I wore them during dinner and during desert. I asked my boyfriend if I could fill the bathtub up and try them out and he wouldn't let me! Fortunately enough for me it rained this morning so I got to try them out! I love them and this was my first time ordering from Zappos. I would highly recommend them (both the boots and Zappos)! I love them! Oh, the sizing. I have small feet normally I wear a size 5 1/2 to 6 so ordered a 5 which worked out perfect. I do not have the welly sock yet, but wore them today with Chaneile socks and they fit fine so I am thinking there won't be a problem once it gets cold again.

I love these boots. I am a size 9 and the size 40 fits perfectly in these boots. Love the quality of Hunter boots and the Original with the gloss makes them a little dressier.... they work great in the rain and look good over jeans, with dresses, and even shorts. \r\n\r\nAlso, the gloss boot has a slightly wider opening at the top of the boot than the original without gloss and is easier to get over jeans.

Brands I'd also recommend: jambu, kork-ease

I'm glad I listened to all the other reviewers and went a size lower. I normally wear a size 6.5 to 7 and went with a size 6, it fits perfectly with thick socks. The color is more pinkish purple than a deep violet, but it is still a great color.

I love my Hunter wellies SO MUCH! They are perfectly made and fit so well. Wonderfully designed. Extremely comfortable. I've never tried the official Hunter socks for these boots, but any sock will do...especially a nice tall wool one for the chilly months. These are great w/ jeans!

There was a lot of differing opinion about sizing of the Hunter boot - it ran large for some, small for others. I ordered by my European size, 39. I normally wear an 8 1/2, was hesitating between 8 and 9, and ordered the 8, which was size 39, and it fits fine. As to the calf size, I have average to slim calves and can wear jeans inside the boot. The most comfortable fit will be with thick socks, when it gets cold again. I might be adding a thin insole.

A little under one year ago I decided that I HAD to have a pair of shiny black Hunter boots, because my commute had changed and I did not even own a proper pair of rain boots. They could not be just any rain boot or any color. They had to be Hunter, shiny black, size 7. Zappos is number one in customer service. Their knowledgeable staff is courteous and precise. How can one go wrong with free shipping both ways? Why buy anywhere else? Thank you, Zappos!

Perfect boots! Well worth the investment. The color is a bit more teal than turquoise, but I still like it. You'll never get a blister with these well crafted boots!

I wear size 8 in open toe shoes size 8.5 in closed toe. I ordered a size 8 and it fits good. It doesn't get super cold in Texas so a regular sock is fine for me. Love the boot

Simply put, they are the best rainboots ever. They are so comfy (a little bit, go down a 1/2 size) and they look great with tights, skinny jeans, everything.

Bought these to replace my recently purchased Lava colored ones that daughter instantly claimed when she saw. We both love our boots! Tall, shiny, and fun, all while being functional and comfortable.

I think these boots are amazing! I have yet to wear them outside but can't wait for it to rain! I should order a half size down if you wear half sizes. I order the turquoise one and I think it is very true to the color of the image and I just love it! I'm very happy with Zappos because they upgraded my shipping order and got them sooner then expected. Overall a wonderful experience.

Definitely go with a size smaller. I normally wear a 9.5-10 and went with the 9... perfect fit! Great boot and I can’t wait for it to rain and for the snow to come next season. They’re so comfy, I wear them all day, not just while I’m trekking through the rain and snow.
