Loved the product. Came in a timely manner. It's the wrong size and I have already ordered the correct size from you and it's being sent as I write this. Thanks so much!

Great boot and very comfortable! Only being 5ft tall, wishing I would have bought the short ones though. Not the easiest to drive in!

Love these boots. I did, however, have to exchange them for a smaller size. My actual size (6), I seemed to feel my heel slip up...and it felt like I was wearing an enclosed closed (if that makes any sense) but the size 5 fit great and I love them!

I love my Hunter boots! They are very cute, and very waterproof! I thought they fit well with regular socks or extra warm socks.

Love these boots -- fashionable in the rain! They are very tall, so might not work for shorter people. Also, the boot shaft is narrow so if you have bigger calves, go for the Huntress instead. Love the high-gloss too.

I just received my Hunter boots today. They are exactly as advertised. I really like them. My recommendation if you are a size 9 as I am and you intend on wearing regular socks or the fleece Welly socks then order the boots true to size. If not, then order a size down. Once I inserted the Welly sock the boots fit snug but not too tight. Without the socks they are just a little loose fitting. I agree with other comments about how they are best worn with skinny jeans or leggings because the shaft of the boot is narrow. I also had to pull kind of hard to take the boots off. But that's not a big deal. Overall a great purchase. Worth the money spent. Zappos got them out to me within 4 days. I also bought a pair for my daughter and she likes her boots as we'll. I hope this review helps someone who's thinking about buying a pair. Considering purchasing a shorter pair at a later date. Enjoy!

First of all, Zappos delivery and customer service is perfection. Secondly, these boots are beyond adorable. Like so many others, I had been eyeing Hunter boots for a while, unwilling to take the plunge. I'm so glad I did! :) Nothing cheers up a rainy/snowing day like PURPLE RAIN BOOTS! So adorable. :) I heart Zappos.

These are the best looking wellies out there, but I wouldn't say they are the most comfortable for all day wear. Two issues in particular for me: First they rub against the front of my calf. Wearing high socks can help with that aspect and in fact I think Zappos has a pair of socks specifically for this purpose although I've not tried them due to the price. Second, they are quite heavy. After a full day of walking around (a couple of miles worth) that can become fairly uncomfortable (for me causes shin splints). Still, I love these boots and they are GREAT for trekking through puddles and piles of snow. I have no idea how I got along without them for as long as I did! Also to note they can get a little grubby/waxy but the Hunter brand cleaner (I have the buffer sponge) works great to get them back to a shiny gloss again. I should note that I have the original version, not the "black gloss" version of the boot and the black gloss may not need the cleaner as much as the original ones.

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.

I absolutely love these boots. Like other reviewers I did sit on the fence for a bit but went with the stylish Sandhurst Carlyle first but alas my calves (15") will not allow me to wear them with thick leggings or skinny jeans. Not is all lost since these babies fill the bill (they were my second choice). I love them (even if some think it is crazy to pay so much for rain boots). You have to love the haters. I did buy them one size smaller (my shoe size is 9) and they are perfect. I hated the idea of walking around where it felt like I had too much shoe to lift (rubber can be heavy) so I went with a cozier fit. All I know is that I will get another pair of Hunters once they make another stylish pair (that does not have a slim fit such as the Sandhurst Caryle or the Sandhurst Savoy). Thanks, Zappos, for the easy exchange and one day shipment of my new glossy babies - I am ready for some wet weather.

I've been wanting a pair of Hunters for a long time now, and my hubby said to go ahead and order some for my birthday! Yay! SO glad I read all the reviews first. I am consistently a size 9 in every brand on the planet except Hunter, apparently. I ordered the 8's and 9's to try on and the 8's were perfect, even with the think Hunter Welly socks. My advice is to order 2 sizes so you can try on together & just send back whichever doesn't fit since Zappos is so awesome about shipping and returns!

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.

I originally ordered a size 6 in these boots because I heard they ran big and they were way too tight. I sent them back and got a size 7 and they fit much better and I can even wear a pair of thick socks. So they do run about 1/2 size too big not much bigger than that.

I really enjoy my Hunter boots. I have wanted a pair for awhile now and finally decided to order some. I love the color, the style, and the comfort. I will say, however, that I probably could have gone a size down. I usually wear an 8.5 and sometimes a 9. So since they don't have half sizes I decided to be safe and go with a 9. I haven't tried the boots on before I had these but I feel an 8 would have fit just fine.

I love the way that these look on other people. Sadly, on my size 10 feet, they just look too utilitarian. Even with skinny jeans, they look floppy like I should be digging in the mud. On more petite feet they look cute. They are quite comfortable, however.

I love the style of these boots. However, they are extremely uncomfortable if you do a lot of walking. In the summer these are hot as heck. In the winter they are chilly, and the Hunter socks bunch up at the feet and make an uncomfortable boot even more uncomfortable. The bottom of my feet ache when I walk in these for a while, although I do not have arch problems and do not experience this in any other shoes I own. As a result, these boots sit in my closet. I do think they are sharp looking, and if you don't plan to walk much while wearing them they might be for you.

These are really great, but they really don't fit that big. I wear an 8 in everything, sometimes even a 7.5, but I ordered the 7 since everyone said they run soooo big and they're just a tad too short. So now I have to order the 8 and see how they compare.

The color has a little more pink in it than I expected (expected a bold red since it's called Pillar Box Red). Additionally, I do wish it came in half sizes because the 9 was too short in the toes, and the 10 felt a little bit large. But, I love them nevertheless and, with a pair of heavier socks, they will wear just fine. So, I'm keeping the 10s.

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.

Perfect rain boot! There's no way around it. I have a thinner calf, so I'm notoriously wary of purchasing knee-high boots sight unseen, but I took the plunge due to Zappos' famously speedy return policy. Glad I did! The boot shaft isn't wildly oversized like most rain boots, thus lending this pair an unprecedented air of chicness. Buy them immediately and pray for rain!

I am so excited to finally have my boots! Haven't had a chance to wear them out & about yet though. Color is exactly as shown. I got a size bigger to allow for the cute welly socks I got with them. Without the socks, 9 would have fit me just fine. I've never had a problem with boots & my calves, but I have plenty of room for my jeans & socks. I'm looking forward to Winter so I can sport my cute new Wellies!
