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!

I normally don't have a problem with calf width on taller boots; however, these were unusually narrow. However, the footbed was comfortable. Sadly after wearing for a day, I'm not able to return.

They are gorgeous! Fit perfectly (I have a weird foot between 7 and 7.5) I can put them on and off easily, they look so pretty! Now I can go with my horse to the beach and with my dog even when it's raining!

While the boots LOOK nice, I had to return as they were caked in mud. Not the first time Zappos has sent me very worn and used shoes. Additionally, the Hunter box was banged up and aged, a sure sign when I opened the package that the previous owner took full advantage of Zappos' generous return policy.

I wear a 9.5 and after reading all the comments about the boot running large, I ordered a 9 and it's too tight. I loved the glossy grey color, so I'm sending it back and getting a 10.

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.

These boots are so awesome. I fell in love with the color and wear them just about anytime it even sprinkles! I get compliments on them all of the time. They are a tad bit hard to break in, but you just have to keep wearing them. Buy one size down, as they are sized large! I would also wear them with thinner things like skinny jeans and tights as they can get a bit hard to stuff pants into if they are thicker.

Super cute but a bit tall. I'm 5'6" and these were in the middle of my knee which I found uncomfortable. I ended up getting a kids pair instead and these are going back.

I love these boots! Chic, fun, and practical. I am usually a 9.5 or 10 with a narrow foot. I tried these in 9 and 10. The 9's were too short. 10's are a little big/wide, but I put in an athletic shoe insert and wear socks and they feel great. I've worn them for up to 7 hours and they are totally comfortable. Will cherish them.

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.

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 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 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!

Got these in lipstick pink. Great vivid color, super high gloss. Scuff, bloom buildup, and high gloss are easily polished with armour-all and an old sock. I resisted the temptation to size down based on reviews. I got my usual size 9 and they fit perfectly when I add my own luxury wool insoles and woolie socks. If you size down, you may have trouble getting boots on and off. I can slip them off effortlessly. I have average calves and these boots have PLENTY of calf room with room to tuck jeans. I'm 5'7" and boots are right height. They only hit back of knee in squatting or extreme knee bending positions. Boot shaft is way more flexible and walkable than my Ralph Lauren plaid vinyl rain boots. You get what you pay for and these are worth the extra money. Cleaning off the chalky white bloom is easy and there are plenty of online instructionals on what products to use and how to keep your super gloss finish. I love these boots!

I bought these boots to wear in the rain and snow in New York City. I wore them for a little over a year, when they started to leak. Boots at this price, that are supposed to be the best, and they cracked at the ball of the foot, and were irreparable. I know at least five other people that this also happened to after owning their Hunter boots for a little over a year. I will never purchase them again.

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 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.

My glossy black Hunters arrived today! Having read the reviews I ordered my regular size (9) and one size down (8). By mistake, Zappos sent an 8 and a 7. No problem! The 8 fits great and I can still easily wear a pair of very thick socks with them. Out of curiosity, I tried the 7 and sure enough could get them on, with socks but wouldn't have had quite as much room so I stuck with the 8. Would highly recommend ordering a full size down. My daughter found the same thing with her pair.

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. :)

I have had my boots for just over a year. After about 6 months of owning them the insole of the boots where my heel is began ripping. Just recently, I have found a hole on the bottom of the boot, as well as a tear by the toe of my other boot (where my toes bend when I walk). For the price I paid I expected them to last much longer than a year. I am not happy with the quality of the boot for the price you pay.

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.
