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.

Love these, they are perfect for rainy days and mucking around in the mud. They fit pretty true to size. I wear a five and a half, bought size six so I could wear thick socks and it is perfect. I'm also short, the tall boots didn't work. These are about mid calf. They wash up quick and easy too.

Love the boot, I wear a size 7.5 and the 7 fits perfect even with a thick sock. I am returning the boot only because the Brick red is an orange red and I want a more candy apple red, I am going to order the pill box red to see if it is a better color, as soon as it is back in stock.

I bought these in my correct shoe size, 9, and they fit perfectly. I do have wide feet. They come up to about mid calf and do leave a burn mark if you don't wear long socks. I was a little disappointed that there isn't enough room to shove the ends of my jeans in, but wearing skinny jeans solves that problem. However, if you have pants that are wider at the bottom, you should get a larger size. They are comfortable and definitely keep the water out. I use them as rain boots and winter boots. I love the simplistic look and shine. Definitely eye-catchers.

I had been wanting a pair of Hunter rain boots and finally broke down and ordered this pair. Unfortunately, they just won't work for me. I have pretty narrow feet and small calves (13 inch). There was no support around the ankle to keep them on; these boots just flopped around if I tried to walk in them. The gap between my legs and the boot was huge. While these boots are cute, they are also rather clunky and heavy -- more so than expected, though maybe it's because they were entirely too wide for me. I know Hunter makes a style for those with wider calves, I really wish they'd make some for those of us who need a more narrow fit. Also, I adjusted these to the max - which isn't a whole lot. I returned these today and ordered a pair of Kamik rain boots -- we shall see if they're any more narrow.

I bought the graphite Hunter boots for my daughter-in-law for Christmas. She loves them and they are perfect for the snowy and rainy weather in Chicago. I also purchased a pair of black Hunter boot liner socks. The next pair of Hunters will be for me!

Rain boots so comfortable I could wear them every day! Not just rubbery, feel like a well-fitting shoe. Do NOT "go up a size". I wear a 7 or 7.5 and these 7's are perfect.

I really really wanted these to fit! I normally wear a 7.5 in shoes so I ordered a 7. It was a little bit of a struggle to get them on and off and while they otherwise fit okay, there was no way I could wear socks or use the shearling insert. There just wasn't enough room in the toe box and my toes were compressed! I then ordered the 8 which made it easier to slip on and off but they looked big. But again, no room to wear socks or the inserts without squishing my toes! And my feet felt really cold-socks are a must for me! So I returned them and bought a different brand!

Absolutely LOVE my new Hunter rain boots. The color is amazing. I wanted to pick a color that would go great with earth tones as well as black & white tones and these are perfect! They fit great! I'm usually a 6.5 and purchased the size 6. There's still room for thicker socks in the winter. I find myself wishing for rainy days so I can wear my boots!

I purchased the traditional height at first but realized they hit too close to my knee and rubbed terribly. I'm 5'2 so I have considerably short shins and this shorter height has been amazing!

These boots get 5 stars for style. They are cute and I get lots of compliments. They are lighter and more flexible than my previous boots so I don't feel like I'm stomping around with Frankenstein feet that don't bend at the ankles. A word of warning as several other reviewers said, they can TEAR UP your calves if your socks are too short. I wore tall socks but they slid down during the day leaving my calves exposed. The result was a strange burn-looking band around both calves that is still there 10 days later. The boots had plenty of room in the calves so they weren't rubbing against my skin, they just barely touched it. OW! I will probably keep them. I just bought some knee high socks.

With these being my second pair of hunters but my first pair in the shorter version, I pretty much knew what to expect, a very functional and comfy welly, in a fun color. I originally ordered in the brick color but in person it was a bit dull. Paired with the short welly socks, these will keep you warm and dry on the rainiest of days!

Perfect rain boots. I wore these on a trip to London where it rained every day. They are very comfortable and still look brand new after all of that wear. Didn't rub any blisters after lots of walking. I am usually a 10/40 and the 10 fit perfectly, with room for thick wool socks.

The color of these boots is so lovely. I normally wear size 8½ and choose the 9 so I could wear them with big socks but in the end I wish that I had sized down. The opening at the top (even buckled down as tight as it will go) is a bit large and looks a little sloppy unless you have leg warmers on. I still love wearing them even if they are too big.

Awesome boots! Classy yet fun. But the best part is that they keep your feet dry. I'm 5' 1" so the Hunter Original Short was perfect for me. As always, Zappos is the best place to purchase as they are second to none with their customer service. This boot runs a bit big but DO NOT size down if you intend on wearing thick socks or the Hunter liner. I bought the liner and it really snugs up the boot.

I adore these boots! I've always been somewhere in the 7 1/2 - 8 range depending on the shoe or boot and I went with the 7 1/2 on these. They're still a bit roomy but depending on your climate, you may need this room for thick socks. With these slick boots, you definitely don't mind those rainy days anymore!

These are perfect rain boots without being the traditional knee-high welly style. I am 5'9" and they hit at the low calf. While I do tend to wear wide calf riding boots otherwise there was no need to worry since they hit at a smaller circumference point on the lower leg. They are definitely not narrow in the foot portion either, I felt they seemed a tad wider then a regular shoe which was perfect for me. The likelihood of wearing thicker socks with these makes the additional width useful. I can see as other reviewers have noted that they'd be a bit rough on a bare leg, high socks, tights or pants tucked in would solve the problem. Very happy with them.

Love my red shorty Hunters! I'm a narrow 7.5, and these fit great with normal every day socks. (With dress socks or thinner socks, they'd be about a half size too big, so just keep that in mind.) When you're walking for a while in them, if you're not wearing pants then your shins might get a little irritated, so I always wear pants with mine, but they are soooooooooo comfy! I also have the tall Hunter tour boots in navy and I love them just as much - almost a little more because they're flexible! These shorty boots are the original so they're glossy and stiff, but wonderful! I would absolutely recommend Hunters to anyone! Love them!

First off, let me start by bragging on how helpful and awesome the customer service I received was. The woman I talked with on the phone was extremely kind and went above and beyond to help me out. Now on to the shoes themselves. These boots are great! They are a great size (for those of us whose legs are too short for the regular Hunters) and they look very cute :) the only thing I would suggest is going probably a half size smaller than what you're used to wearing. All in all, the boots are a great product and a great investment!
