These are my first pair of Welly shoes ever! At first, I was skeptical about the fit. After having worn them over a week, I cannot wear anything else outside! I love them! I wear a size 8.5, but found they were too snug with the Welly socks, so I returned them and purchased a 1/2 size up. The shaft of boot is a bit snug, but only at first! Otherwise, they just melt to you the more you wear them. The Welly socks makes them so that I can wear them in cold weather. It works! Now I have boots for spring and winter!

I ordered the violet color, which is more like the fuchsia shown in the picture. It is a great vibrant color, love it! I normally wear a size 10, but ordered the 9 because most European sized shoes run a size big. They fit perfect. My only complaint is I wish they were about two inches shorter. Being 5'5", they go up to the bottom of my knee. Other than that, I love them!

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 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!

Super cute and I want to give this 5 starts but they are very tight around my calves. Could just be my issue but I was hoping they'd be a little looser. I don't have overly large calves but I would say unless you're very petite these may be too tight for the average Jane.

I love the color of these boots, but unless you have TINY calves, your legs won't fit into these at all, let alone with jeans or pants. I tried them on and within seconds I knew I would be sending them back. I am going to try the Hunter boots that are adjustable in the back. Unfortunately, the adjustable ones don't come in this color.

I loved the look of these boots, but they were too tight on my calf so I returned. In their place I ordered the Balmoral and I'm waiting on those to arrive to see if the fit is better.

I have been in love with these boots forever and was so excited to finally order a pair. They are so stylish and being 5'7''I love the height of them. I also have pretty skinny calves (@13.5-14) and the calf circumference was good for me. A little roomy with leggings but enough room to comfortably wear skinny jeans & socks. Unfortunately after much deliberation they just aren't going to work for me. I wear a size 9-9.5M in almost every boot/shoe I own, so I ordered these in a 9 figuring I would have room for thicker socks. I was SWIMMING in a size 9, my skinny heels and ankles were flopping all over the place, so I ordered an 8 to compare. The 8s came and they were way too tight, my toes were at the very end of the boot even with thin or no socks on. I give them only 2 stars for comfort for this reason because I could not feel confident or comfortable walking in them in either size. I still give them 5 for style and 5 overall because I think they are very high quality, attractive, and the Graphite Gloss color is versatile for many outfits and more fun than basic black. If only Hunter would make 1/2 sizes, I am 100% positive an 8.5 would have been perfect for me. Sadly these are going back, as I just can't justify $140 on something that doesn't fit perfectly, no matter how cute! I will always admire these boots on others though. :)

The tops of these boots are tight on my calfs, and I have skinny legs. They run a bit big in the foot but definitely could be a bit looser on the top. When I put in the boot liners I have trouble getting them over my calfs. I wish that I had tried them on in person before buying online. I bought the boot liners here at Zappos but not the boots so the return is not as easy as with Zappos. I will probably keep them but I would like to tuck my jeans into the boot liners and the boot liners into the boots and that is definitely tight on the calfs. The top of the boots seems to be more of a rectangle than an oval.

These boots came up very high on my legs. They fit right up under my knee cap, making it difficult to walk and I am 5'7". I have several pairs of boots in other brands and have never had an issue with them being too tight in the calf, but the Hunter boots were very tight. I was not able to wear them and sadly had to send them back.

I really liked these boots, but had to return them. I am 5'3. The boot was too high and cut into the back of my knee. I bought the short boots instead, which are a much better height. It's too bad the tall boots are too tall! Another thing to note: with out the welly socks, the boots are too large. With the welly sock, they fit perfectly. I recommend ordering your usual size AND the socks - they'll do nicely to keep your feet toasty when it's cold and rainy! They fit well over skinny jeans.

These have a very slim shaft. I was hoping to be able to tuck my jeans into them but they are too narrow in the calf. (I don't normally buy a wide calf boot.) The foot is comfortable but I don't know if I would purchase again for practical reasons.

This boots were really big. I wear a 6 and the 6 was super loose. Felt bulky and hard to walk in. I am not usually a boot wearer.

As of right now, I still don't have these shoes. Zappos has been so helpful with my returns, but I am not so happy with Hunter. I usually wear a 9.5 so I ordered the 9 which for ok with a thin sock. Only problem, I live in the north where it gets cold early so I need to wear a thick sock most of the fall, winter and spring. So I ordered the 10. I got them and they are so big my foot felt like it was drowning in it! They also hit much higher than the 9 on my leg as well as bunching awkwardly around my ankle when I walked. I'm currently awaiting the pair of 9's to be sent back to me so I can try them again.

I love these boots. Except for one major disappointment. They don't stay glossy. Not sure why, but once I wore them (only twice) they lost their gloss? And it was pretty much all over the boots. Not just like a scuff mark or anything, but they almost look like they have a film over them. You probably can't tell from a distance, but I can definitely see it while wearing. They are comfortable and stylish, but the whole non-glossy thing has me bummed!

When I first opened the box, I fell in love with these boots. Absolutely gorgeous! I usually wear a size 9.5 or 10 but I bought a 9. Perfect fit! My only problem is my calf. These boots are NOT for us ladies with a muscular calf! I ended up exchanging them for the short version.

Too long and this is from a girl who has a 33" inside leg! They pinched a lot around the knee. Also, when I'm paying this much for a pair of wellies they should look great right out of the box. This was not the case for these boots; instead they had taken on a flat squarish shape at the front (probably from the way they were packed in the box) which looked awful, not like the picture at all. The color is not as cute as the picture either, more garish in real life. So disappointing as I really wanted to love these.

I want to start by saying that these books look fantastic. I went against some of the advice in the reviews and ordered my standard boot sizing (I am a US 8½ and I ordered a 9) and the fit is perfect with the wellie socks. The part that I am very unhappy with, is the sizing at the calves. I have never had to order wide calf sizes before in any boot. These boots, I can barely pull up. Wearing them over jeans or even leggings is nearly impossible. Beware!

The size felt like it was twice as big even with the Hunter socks that fold over. I also disliked hoe "clunky" they were even for rain boots. I bought another brand around the same time and just really liked how stylish and true to size they were. I still think Hunter is a great quality product and was sad it didn't work for me.

I was so excited to get these, I've wanted Hunter boots for a couple years and I fell in love with the violet purple color. When they came in I eagerly put them on only to realize they were pretty much cutting of the circulation in my calf muscles. I struggled to get them off even! I wanted so badly to love these. The color was super pretty in person but I have larger than average calf muscles and these boots aren't forgiving in that area. Kudos to Zappos for next day delivery and easy returns! I'm ordering the adjustable version (from the UK) so hopefully these will work!

I'm a true size 6.5, and I have muscular calves, but I'm hardly obese (size 4 petite). I ordered a size 6 because I read that they ran large in the foot; the foot itself fit well with thick socks and seemed very comfortable. However, the boots barely fit in the calf with stockings and were too tight with thick knee socks, so I had to return them. (I also tried the Huntress in size 6, but the foot was too small, so I'm going to try the size 7. The Huntress is only slightly larger in the calf, so if you're not skinny but want to tuck in pants, another brand is probably the way to go.)

I love the color. But I have thick calves so they do not fit. They are tight around my calf and slough. Not a cute look. So I will be sending these back.

I just got my boots in the mail today...and I love them! They are beautiful. They are a bit big in the foot part, but tight around the calves, which worries me because I cannot wear the wellie socks with them, because it becomes too tight around the calves. But I still love them. I am okay without the wellies because with regular socks they fit perfectly.

Unfortunately these just did not fit my calves. Sad because I absolutely adore this color. I ordered the pink Huntress style instead and they seem to be more accommodating. I wanted these to work. I wish Hunter made the Huntress in all the same colors for those of us with athletic calves.

I originally ordered these in Turquoise size 9 and they just were not the color I was expecting but I exchanged them for black size 9. In the winter they are perfect, they leave enough room for me to wear jeans and socks with them. The sizing of the boots are very awkward. In the summer however they are big around my calves and feet, which makes it hard to walk. I always wonder maybe if I should have gone a size smaller, but then maybe they would be too small!
