I love my Hunter Wellies and so do a lot of other people judging from the compliments I have received. I could not find these boots at any retailer in metro Atlanta but easily found them at Zappos and they were delivered within 4 days. The color was exactly as pictured on the website and they fit perfectly. These boots are both practical and stylish.

Had a hard time finding these boots, but it was definitely worth it! They are great for not only rain, but for the snow, and when you buy the welly socks, they make a perfect winter boot. I usually wear a 9-9.5 and bought the size 9 boots which has a little extra room, but you need this room if you are going to buy the socks to go with them!! Only downfall is they work best with a skinny jean/pant. You can definitely wear them with a flared pant, just takes some extra maneuvering to put them on. Overall, I highly recommend these boots and think they are well worth the money, plus they look great.

I am a size 4.5 and knew these boots would be too large. I planned on wearing a sock with them which I have done. They are still too large but I decided to keep them for very rainy or snowy days. They're fun boots. My guess is if you are a size 5 or larger they will be fine.

Really nice rain boots, you can feel it is high quality material right away and they are very comfortable to wear, I did not find them to be tight on the calf. The violet colour is more of a hot pink, and I absolutely love it. Also, got the fleece socks, I wear them on snowy days and it does keep me warm.

I ordered size 8/39UK Graphite Gloss. Graphite is gray, it is shiny and pretty. The size seemed perfect, a little roomy in the toes, but I don’t think I would have room for the fleecy liners. It was a little difficult to pull boots off, but that is expected for rainboots. They felt light and cushy to walk in, very well molded to the foot. My feet did not look huge in the boots which was a plus, since I am hyperaware of my large tootsies and shoes that accentuate that, so these made me happy. I wear a solid 8.5, I am 5’5” with average or shorter legs and normal to slightly muscular calves. The boots hit me right below the knee. I could fit them over bootcut or skinny jeans. Skinny jeans were more comfortable and less bunched. I recommend them! If I were to use the fleece liners, I might go up to a size 9.

These boots are the perfect light grey color, a little lighter than the picture above. They aren’t as glossy as the picture either, but they don’t have the blooming problem that the non-glossy hunter boots have. That’s not to say that they’re dull, as the gloss, in my opinion, is just perfect. They do run a little large, so order a size down. They arrived right on time with a box I can use them to pack them in for traveling, and were in perfect condition. They’re the best rain boots I’ve ever owned and would definitely buy another pair.

Wow! I purchased these boots last night and they arrived today! That is amazing service by Zappos! I wear a 5/5.5 shoe size and I am 5’2”. I purchased a size 5 women’s figuring it would be really huge. It is probably a 1/2 size bigger, so if I wear thick socks or put an insole in, they will fit perfectly. Also, some pervious feedback on the height of the boot: for my height, they are a perfect knee high boot. I am looking forward to wearing these at the dog park, especially after all the rain!

I LOVE this boot. It’s totally worth the money. I live in Chicago with rain, cold, and snow and it’s perfect for all seasons. If I wear heavy socks, I don’t even really need the Welly fleece socks. The boots do run big. I typically wear a 7.5 in gym shoes and my Uggs are an 8, but these 7s are perfect. Loose enough for big socks, but not too big that they fall off. The gloss is great and the color makes me want to wear them all the time. I even bought my mom a pair of the shorter ones too. HIGHLY recommend if you like a good quality stylish product.

Great boots. I disagree with the review below that said they are too heavy. For what they are, tall rubber boots, they\'re fairly light. Maybe I\'m a Clydesdale, I don\'t know lol. I actually was expecting taller, thinner shafts. In person, they look a bit wider and shorter. I\'m a runner, about 5\'9" 136 lbs, and don\'t have what you\'d call tiny calves, but my legs fit in the shafts fine even with jeans on. \r\n\r\nThese do run large. I am a 9.5 in most normal street shoes, a 10 in running shoes, and the 9 felt a bit large with regular-thickness socks. Felt more fitted with thicker ski socks, but I can\'t see wearing super-thick socks on those hot summer days when it\'s monsooning here in Houston. Just FYI, if you intend to wear them with regular socks, size way down. If too large, the heels will allow your foot to escape, as is common with any brand of rain boot.\r\n\r\nArch support isn\'t really there - easily fixed with some insoles, which may actually help the fit. These boots may arrive looking like they have a residue on them - that\'s just the protective wax. Wipe off with a warm, damp cloth. Overall, very stylish, cute enough to wear out to a movie on a rainy day.

I really like these boots. I have the black Hunter original gloss boots. I purchased my regular size, and feel that they're a good fit, especially with the well socks that I ordered as well. My only complaint is that after 2 wearings the gloss has gotten a bit chalky.

I ordered these boots to replace a cheaper pair of rainboots. They came in the mail right away (love Zappos service!). But about the boots - size: fit relatively true to size. I'm a ladies 8, and ordered as such. Read reviews that they ran large, but the fit is perfect for thick socks or fleece liners, which are essential in the wet, slushy Chicago weather. I have large calves, although I'm average size everywhere else. These boots fit over my monster calves (comfortably!). The height may be a bit tall if you have shorter legs, but the fleece liners help keep it comfy. I've had them for about a month in the winter, and so far I'm very pleased and have received many compliments on these boots. The color is spunky, fun, and perky for the drab Chicago style.

Brands I'd also recommend: Merell! All the way!!

I purchased the Hunter boots for my daughter. She loves them. They run about a half size larger, but if you are using them in the winter, you need the room for thick socks as there is no lining. Definitely recommend the Hunter boot socks which can be rolled down over the top edge of the boot.The socks add warmth and style. Would buy another pair for sure. If you\'re buying on line, Zappos is great. We received the boots in a couple days, much to my surprise as it was Christmas rush.

These boots were a Christmas present, and I was eager to wear them right away. I am about 5'4" and they come up just below my knee, giving me lots of coverage in the snow, but they are not insulated! I usually wear a size 8, and the 8 in these allowed me just enough room to wear a pair of nice, thick socks. They're a little tricky to drive in, not offering a lot of flexibility, but they are stylish and practical in inclement weather to "boot" (get it?).

These boots are very comfortable and fit true to size. I don\'t have very long legs and my calves are very muscular, so muscular in fact that I often can\'t stuff them into boots I try on. Luckily, I had no issues with these boots as they are wide enough at the top to fit my calves comfortably and there is room left over so that I can stuff my jeans into them.

Brands I'd also recommend: Ugg

I bought these for my girlfriend for christmas and she couldn\'t be happier. They fit a size small(like Uggs)she wears a size 7 shoe and 6 in Ugg and now Hunter. Unlike a few comments, she can easily fit a skinny jean inside her tall boot even with the Hunter Sock, she is also 5\'5\'\'. These boots are great for snow and water as we had had plenty of both in the recent weeks. They wont be the warmest boots you have ever had but make no mistakes these boots are for all weather conditions within reason. A great buy for anyone.

I greatly enjoy these boots. I have only had them for 3 weeks and have already received many compliments on them. They are very waterproof and I can easily walk through puddles or piles of snow. However, there is little arch support, if any. I do have bad arches, though. My main complaint would be that my feet are absolutely freezing when I wear them outside. And although we are in the middle of winter, I would highly recommend buying/wearing warm, thick socks when wearing these boots, especially if your feet get cold easily. Overall, these boots have been great so far. They are not difficult to get on or off and you can easily tuck your jeans into them (I pull my jeans around my leg, like a super skinny jean). I highly recommend these boots, with some warm socks!

I do like the style of these boots. I do not consider myself too short I am 5'4 and am physically fit I exercise 5 times a week. After walking on these for 1 block I am very tired; for one the boots are a bit tall and are heavy and I do not wear them with the Hunter special thick and maybe heavy sock. These boots are heavy, maybe are insulated with steel. I am thinking of taking these to a boot specialist and have him shorten these by 3". Unfortunately I do not walk with a smile on these, but am hanging on to these because no water goes in and this is what I look for before looks. Should consider weight next time. But I can wait for winter to be over to put them away. I did not realize these came in gloss/matte. Mine are gloss. I thought gloss was the only option and I feel like a kid. Zappos should emphasize a bit more on gloss/matte option. I hope Hunter makes these ankle high or shorter than what they have as in my state these fireman tall boots are not necessary. I hope Zappos also includes weight of shoe/boot. And if it did include weigh I missed it. Can't write anymore; am tired after wearing these boots.

Brands I'd also recommend: not familiar with other brands

I love my Hunter rain boots. This has been a rainy fall and winter so far here in Alabama, so I have worn them a lot already. I ordered my usual size 7 and they fit fine. I love the graphite color too. The boots are a little snug at the top, but fit well over skinny jeans and leggings.

Comfortable, beautiful boot! I love my Original Gloss boots. Got them in black and they look so much better than the regular black; the shine is nice and doesn't look as intense as the picture. Also, the gloss boots don't have the streaky white marks that the original boots do. They are super comfy and I love clomping around in them! Some other reviewers have noted that they are short and the boots do come up really high on your leg. I am 5'2" and they came up almost to my knees, but I don't find this to be a problem. I wear a 5.5-6 and got a 5 and they fit perfectly with socks. I am able to tuck my jeans/pants in, but it is definitely tight; if you are planning on wearing the Welly socks with these, then I don't think you'll be able to tuck your jeans in unless you have really skinny calves! I saw the Welly socks at Nordstrom though and I don't think they are that cute, the boots would be just fine without. So glad I got these, even though I live in Southern California.
