Love the boots! They are comfortable and great traction for the snow and ice. Not that warm but the inserts are great for that. If you are a half size I would recommend going a size down - I wear a size 8.5 and the 8 has plenty of room even with the insert. Though the reason I was sold on the Hunters was the inserts which they also recommend you go a size down - herein lies my only problem: the inserts are too small for my foot - by the end of the day they start to pull and hurt my feet - I wouldn't think that a fleece sock could be so restricting - but somehow it is. I haven't tried a size up on those yet but I am hoping they work out. Fingers crossed! Otherwise - great buy!

So far, I'm pretty sure I'm going to love these boots! I'm relocating to a farm in hilly North Carolina where these are sure to get great use. As most, I was a bit dismayed by the price, but if they last a lifetime, in the end it's justifiable. The Hunter Original Gloss boot is not quite as "red" as I wanted; I like more of a blue based red and these, to me, seem a bit more "orange red", although they are still red, that's for sure. Not quite as glossy as I had imagined, either. They don't make my feet look enormous (I wear a size 10), which is a miracle! I'm probably going to order at least one more pair in that dark grey and maybe the dark purple - those were my other favorites. But red is so versatile. Comfy, easy to clean, and how can you beat Zappos quality and service? Get these boots!

These boots are adorable in person. I am 5'2, and I was worried they would be too tall, but they actually hit an inch below my kneecap. I am usually always a size 7 in woman's and I got these in a size 6 woman's (US). The tag shows it is EU size 37. Note that other reviews are true and these do run large. I ordered a size down from my usual size, and they fit snug with the welly socks. Lastly, the red is a true, vibrant, tomato red.

I have a pair of Hunters that are so old they were made in England (they are now made in China). I was reluctant to order new ones because I thought the quality would be less. Happily, I was wrong. My new Hunter boots are very well made, cut perfectly for my not-very-thin leg, and comfortable. The shiny purple is nice, too. Oddly, they are a couple inches taller than my old ones, but I'm 5'11", so the height is a good thing. I'm very happy with my purchase. Zappos upgraded the shipping, too!

I originally got these boots in black but when I got them home I knew that I needed them in red. I am so happy with them, overall. I got them a bit big for layering socks but they still feel good when I don't need all the layers.

Love these boots. They're a common sight here in NYC and with all the terrible weather we've been having, I've been in dire need of a pair of good rain boots. After buying to many pairs of terrible ones that break after one use, it made sense for me to invest in a pair of hunter boots. True to size, super comfortable, I love them and I only got them yesterday. I'm only 5'1 and they fit like a dream and look great. They also fit my calf perfectly. I highly recommend them. They're worth the investment.

This is such a great boot! It fits perfectly, and it keeps me dry. The price is worth it, you definitely get what you pay for. I have muscular calves, and they fit perfectly. Best shoe purchase I have made to date.

I love these! They run a bit big so buy a half size down. Also, the gloss is a bit much when you first put them on, but it wears down to more of a satin shine! Awesome! Perfect for rainy Houston winters!

I love the boots. I have them in Lava. Yeah, you should order them a size smaller, because they run large. I have very huge calf muscles so they are a bit tight on my legs. That is the only negative thing about them. Wearing my fleece in the boots with my pants tuck will not work for me.

LOVE THEM!!!! They are so cute and comfortable. I got them specifically for a trip to Boston, knowing it was going to rain the entire weekend. I wore them all weekend and walked all over the city in the pouring rain--I was the only one with dry feet. They were really comfortable and kept my feet happy. I strongly recommend them.

I love these boots! I typically wear either a 7 or 7.5, so I purchased a 7 based on other recommendations and they fit great. I am excited to buy the liners for the boots for the winter. I originally put off buying these due to the price, but it is definitely worth it. I live in the city and walk to work every day and I was tired of ruining my Uggs, which did not repel water. These will be perfect for the snow, slush and rain!

Love the boots. Very comfy, although rather tall. A bit tight around the calves; I'm 5'3" and 120 lbs. The color is a beautiful dynamic gray.

The Hunter boots are fantastic! They are not only wonderful for rain & snow (especially nice for cold weather with the Welly socks), but they are fashionable to boot! I originally ordered a size too big, but customer service was great - I called to reorder & arranged the exchange. The exact size I needed arrived the next day.

These are wonderful! At the moment I can't decide which to keep: the original or these original gloss ones! I recommend buying your normal size and 1 size down (if you're a half size, order size up and down). This should save you some trouble. And you should order the liners to see if they'll work for the size you think you want. I'm about to order my normal size to compare the 1 size down. Zappos is amazing and always provides me great service!

My calves are curvy, not particularly slender. My kids have run off with my tape measure, otherwise I would measure. I'm a size 10 in pants & I am 5' 7 1/2". I bought this type of boot from Zappos; they arrived the next day! I bought them in black. I wore them when it was so rainy. I wore them to church with black tights & a black knee-length pencil skirt. I got so many compliments on these boots! I thought they would be basic boots. Well, Rachel Zoe recommended them on her e-mail; and they were less expensive through Zappos than another website I checked. They are a bit tight around my calves, but it keeps the rain from getting in. They are about 3 or 4 inches below my knee. They also have some ankle definition. I like the glossy look, too. Shiny rain boots. What fun! Prepare for some compliments. I have a bit of trouble getting them off from around my calf, but if I am patient & jiggle, it works in a little while. They are maybe slightly wide from side to side in the foot; but then again, it gives room for warm socks if it's cold outside.

Love these boots! They are slightly shorter and have a slightly larger calf circumference than the original Hunter boots. Love the color and gloss, it makes them cute and girly. I wear a size 9.5, and I bought a 9 - they fit great!

Great buy! Sturdy, fashionable and classic. Everything you expect from Hunter. Order one size down - normally I wear a 38 and had to exchange for a 37.

Great boots! Incredible quality and cool blue-gray color! Choose one size smaller than your regular size for the perfect fit. I love them so much that I will buy the kids version for my daughters, too.

Bought these for a trip to Portland! These are my 2nd pair of Hunter Wellies. The Gloss doesn't get chalky like the original wellies do. These are the most comfortable boots. I wish I could wear them every day! Sizing perfect and you will have these forever!

These boots are superlative in every way. Right out of the box they are comfortable, extremely durable, and gorgeous. They exude class and distinction but are utilitarian. I will keep them for the remainder of my life because they are timeless. In fact, every time I wear them I receive compliments from not only women but, incidentally, men (some of whom unexpectedly launch into recollections about their Hunters). Expect attention and smiles of recognition when you wear them. The size 38 pair fit my size 7.5 feet perfectly; and I found that as a 5'3" woman, the height of the boots were comfortable. Of course, I have to mention the wonderful customer service. Next to having the boots beamed to me at home, they were waiting for me less than 24 hours after I hit the "send" button. Truly, these boots and Zappos are worth your time, attention and hard-earned resources.

Love these boots! They are really comfy to wear all day. I typically wear a 7.5-8 and got them in a 7 so when I put on socks they are perfect. I also ordered the Welly Socks/Liners. Some people complained about them, but they are not supposed to be socks, just liners for the boot to insulate. I wear a normal pair of socks under them because the liners are loose and not meant to fit like a sock. Overall, I love them and am thinking about getting them in another color!

I no longer dread rainy days! I am in love with my new hunter boots original gloss. They definitely run a 1/2 size + big. I typically wear 7 1/2, but decided to get the 7. They are a little big, but the 6 were a little small so I've got some room, but I'm super happy with them.
