Received these boots, but the have a white film all over. They are supposed to be high gloss, however they have many spots that are very dull along with having the white film. I checked the box and they are made in China. For the price there should be some quality control!

I love these! They are comfortable like Muck Boots, but way more stylish. They run big, so I was happy that my wide, 7 1/2 size feet feel good in a US 7. I can't wait until it rains!

I am very happy with ordring the Hunter boots from Zappos. I orderd a pair in tan for my grand daughter who is off to college. She decided she didn't like the color,so I returned them which was very easy and no extra cost involved. I reordered a pair in glossy black, exactly what she wanted. with the sock insert they fit perfectly, even if they are 1/2 size larger. She feels they definetly give her an edge in style.

Great shoes! I ordered them for the rainy walks between classes at college. I'm usually a 5.5. I ordered a 5 and they fit perfectly. Overall they are cute and perfect for me!

I get so many compliments on these boots! The color is adorable and they are shiny but not obnoxiously so. The 8 fit perfectly and I am normally an 8½. They are adorable and comfortable. I love them!

Love these boots, but leaves little calve room to tuck in pants. I am 5'7" and 134 lbs...so its not like my calves are huge. Very comfortable though.

These boots are a great rainy day option that are professional and practical. They are comfortable and durable, and they also double as a good snow shoe.

These are my first pair of hunter rain boots and i'm very impressed with them! They are very comfy and roomy, yet stylish and warm. I want another pair! You will not be disappointed.

I love these boots! Like the other reviews said, they are larger than advertised. I am normally a 7.5 (sometimes 8) so I ordered a 7 and they fit perfectly, with even a little wiggle room for thicker socks. And I just love the color!

These boots are gorgeous, but the calf is way too small for me. I literally had to spend a good 20 minutes trying to wrench them off. I have huge calves though, like 16 inches at the top, so the Huntress worked for me while these did not (you should definitely measure your calves and if they are larger at their biggest point than the circumference of the boot, these will not be a good fit for you...try the Huntress!). Also, I'm 5'5" and these hit me literally at my knee-cap, which made it uncomfortable to walk for me. The Huntress is a little shorter too so it's a better fit for me overall but if you're tall with a slim build, I would probably lean toward the Originals due to their sleek look. NOTE: Make sure you decide what finish you want in both care and look, the glossy ones are going to prevent that cloudy look from happening when the wax rises to the surface of the boot. The matte finish require more cleaning to keep them looking sharp.

Love the boots overall. I do not have big calves (so I thought) and have never had issues with my calves and boots, but these were a lot tighter than I expected. It doesn't really bother me, I just was expecting a little more room in the calf area.

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!

I've needed rain boots for a long time and am glad I finally invested in a good pair. They fit and look great! I also love the purple color. I usually wear a 7.5 and I sized down to a 7 for a perfect fit.

Love the boots! I bought glossy ones because I had read reviews that the regular ones showed scuff marks etc. more easily. So happy with my purchase. They are perfect to wear with skinny jeans or tights on a rainy day. They fit like you think rubber rain boots would, a bit loose on the heel and a bit stiff, but you can tell these are high quality and will last. Highly recommend.

I bought these for my 14-year-old daughter. They're cute, bright and dress up her outfit on a rainy day! They seemed a bit narrow, and the calf a bit slim, but they fit her perfectly.

I bought these boots based on a friend's recommendation and all the positive reviews. I've received several compliments on how cute/nice they are and find them very comfortable for walking. They are practical as well, it is quite rainy in Philly and they are good for puddle-jumping. They are a little expensive, but are definitely better quality than my last pair of cheap rain boots, which cracked.

Love these boots! They're comfortable and easy to walk in, and run true to size. The first pair I ordered had some scuffed/dull spots on them, so I returned them and the second pair was super glossy and perfect. Lots of compliments when I wore these out today!

I love these boots! They are slim fitting, so I can't stuff my jeans into them, but I still love them! They are extremely comfortable and the red is so cheery I can't help but smile when I am wearing them. The prefect wet weather boot!

I love these! They are a little big, but I have the Welly socks for wearing them in winter so I am fine with the size. That being said when it's been dry for a bit I find myself wishing for rain or snow so I have an excuse to wear these.

Order about a full size smaller than your normal shoe size. Shoe tends to run large. With that you'll get a great fit. It's snug without being tight and wears very well.

These boots are one of my favorite things that I bought this year. They're extremely comfortable (I could wear them easily after injuring my foot), they're warm (unless it's severely cold, they make good snow boots when worn with socks), and they look great! They're completely fantastic rain boots.

I like these boots and get lots of compliments on them every time I wear them. I bought a 9 instead of 8 (my size) so that I could wear thicker socks in these in the winter.

I so badly wanted to fall in love with these boots, because they look so stinkin' cute. I love the violet color (which is really a beautiful bright raspberry) and the taller than average height is great, even though I'm only 5'0". I love that they hit just under the knee, and have a perfect heel height. Unfortunately, there were two main problems that forced me to return them. First, I'm a half size and that left me completely in the lurch. I normally wear a 5.5 medium and the 6 was huge and the 5 was too small. The size 6 was comfortable with the fleece wellies socks (sold separately) but I wouldn't wear fleece socks in the Summer and they were too big with regular socks. Secondly, I have very skinny calves and these wouldn't even remotely be called snug on average sized calves. Even with jeans, these were huge around the calf. So the moral of the story is, they are very true to size and not for those with skinny calves. I kept the fleece socks to wear with the replacement boots I'm now hunting for. I'd pay double for a pair of Hunter skinny boots if they existed!
