I love these boots! I usually wear a size 8, 8 1/2, but these fit like a glove. I tend to wear wear thinner vs. thicker socks (my feet hate being confined to socks!) so consider that when buying. You should definitely wear socks with them or you will get little blisters on the backs of your legs as the edges rub up against your legs (makes sense). They keep my feet warm and completely dry in the water-winter wasteland that is Seattle, WA, which is exactly what I was looking for, and looks great with skirts. I have big calves, but have no problems whatsoever with these boots. We're talking a circumference of almost 16" here. I have soccer-player legs. Yup. And I love these cute little boots. They make me feel girly. If I wore skinny jeans, I could probably tuck my jeans in them, though it'd be a tight fit. But I wear boot-cut jeans, so that just looks ridiculous. I also have wider feet, and have no problems wearing these all day comfortably. It's just a matter of finding socks of the right thickness, which you can do at any REI-type store.

I wore these boots for the first time yesterday. Since it wasn't actually raining when I was commuting to/from work, I left my pants untucked with the boots under my pants. Well the top of the boots left massive abrasions on the backs of my legs from rubbing. Granted I wasn't wearing the welly socks but it was August so didn't feel the need to wear them. Now I know. Beware that the same thing can happen to you. I'm very disappointed since I really liked them beside this issue.

I am more than pleased with these boots! I am smaller with a petite frame, so this shorter boot was perfect! I added a thick sock on cold days, and it has been perfect! (They run an entire size larger, so order down one size.)

I don't usually write these, but I just had too in this case. First, Laura (customer service) was outstanding in her help with the ordering. Second, these were a gift for my wife and I was nervous that I wouldn't get her something she'd like (or it wouldn't fit). Well, they arrived today (December 23rd) and right away my wife wanted to know what was in the box. Since we usually give each our gifts, I figured it would be okay. The surprised look on her face told me everything I needed to know. She's already tried them on (she likes the fit and feel) and made comment that there's enough room for a couple of pairs of socks (for winter wearing). She wears a size 6 shoe and I got her size 6 Graphite Short Gloss Hunter's.

I just received my Hunter Short Gloss boots in Graphite, and I am in love. Comfortable, Chic and practical... an unbeatable combination and well worth my money. The only thing I am more impressed with is Zappos and their consistently excellent customer service.

Brands I'd also recommend: None. Hunter is in a class by itself

I was so excited to get these boots! They are such a fun color and spice up any wardrobe, especially those from a rainy state! I wear them everywhere. I will wear them with leggings or even a skirt! I did find them snug in the shaft,I wish that they were available in half sizes as they do run large and a whole size up or down is too much difference. Mine have more than enough wiggle room but are a bit more on the large side. They are also not a smooth flat boot feel, there is a small heel and you can feel it in every movement, for those of you who may be use to a flat boot as I was. I do Love my boots and can't wait to order the tall black Hunter!

If you're looking for a rain boot that will fit over your jeans, this is the one. I originally bought the tall version, but had to return it because I couldn't shove my jeans inside the boot. This one is perfect!

I love these boots! I just got them in the mail today and they are fantastic. I cannot wait to try them out but they already feel broken in and comfortable just putting them on for a short walk with the dogs. Great looking boots too!

Perfect. I love them; stayed on my feet all winter, they go with everything and since they are Hunter you can wear them in the yard. Clean with their spray cleaner and they are ready for going out.

I was very pleased with the quality and fit of these wellies. I expect years of sturdy service from them and the fit was just right for me. I take a 6 1/2 medium in an American shoe. I have an average width and a high instep. I like a lot of arch support and sturdy comfort in my shoes and these were perfect. I will be adding some comfort insoles. There is room for heavy socks. I use them for garden boots. So far they are working fine. If they last as expected I would definitely purchase another pair.

Wonderful boots! I normally wear a women's 9.5 in Scarpa, Montrail and Zamberlan hiking boots. I ordered the 40-41 and needed to put in thick Sole insoles to get the right fit with thinner socks. With the Soles insoles the boots fit perfectly and are very comfortable and were right out of the box. I have a very wide forefoot and narrow heel. The boots have no arch support, so the Soles help with that if you will spend a lot of time standing while wearing these boots. I live in a dusty high desert and wear the boots daily for outdoor chores, ranging from gardening to sawing trees. They are super: at the end of a dusty / muddy day I just hose them off and am good to go inside. The height keeps the bottoms of my pants clean and dry and keeps insects out. The soles grip well on all surfaces, wet and dry. I have bought many other chore boots but these are by far the best and the fire engine red makes them the prettiest, too. They are also easy on and off. I guess you can tell by now that I recommend the boots.

Brands I'd also recommend: Clarks, Blundstone

Love these boots! They are the most comfortable rain boots I have ever owned. I live in the Seattle area and spend a lot of time on the soccer field, therefore these boots have seen a lot of action and they still look great, and eventhough I am wearing rainboots, I still feel stylish.

Great choice! I'm petite and 5'4" so the short style hit perfectly at my calf, avoiding the rubber "swish" of the classic. My gait feels stable in in wet/slippery conditions.

The boot was great; it is a little stiff, which I am hoping will soften up as I continue to wear them, but overall a great boot. I find them a little more difficult to drive in, but not too bad. I love the gloss of them; it makes them look a little nicer than a dull boot. Highly recommend!

A Zappos rep helped me so I'd like to pay it forward. If you are a true size 6, you'll notice that the sizing is either 35-36/UK 3 (woman's 5/man's 4) or 37/UK 4 (woman's 6/man's 4), and that most of the reviews indicate that these boots fit rather snugly. If you are a size 6 like me, you ordinarily would go for a European size 36; however, the size range 35-36 will give you a no-space-for-socks fit and may prove a little more difficult to get off (but then again, all rain boots, especially the taller style, have this problem!). I went with the size 37 and they are perfectly comfortable with thicker/wool socks. They do feel bigger than my usual shoes because they obviously are, but they aren't so large that my feet feel huge or that I am flopping around in them. I personally would rather have that then squished toes. The gloss boots do get scuffed more easily.

These boots are so classic - the glossy tone is not that flashy at all. I ordered them with a fleece sock insert, so as to have a snow boot/ rain boot in one. Unfortunately, even with the socks, my feet were pretty cold during NY snowstorm season. I kept them anyway because I need a good rain boot, and I can see these will last forever and are super comfy.
