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.

Great hunter option for those of us with thicker calves! Color is beautiful and one of a kind. Remember to size down a bit.

As a Seattle Native, I can tell you that rain boots that last and last are a must. There are months here (Oct - May) where the ground is so saturated, you can't cut across a lawn without rain boots on. This is my second pair of these, and the first pair lasted 6 years. That's pretty darned amazing, considering the use I get out of them! My legs are on the short side, so these don't hit at the knee, which is nice.

agree with other reviewers that these run a little large - usually wear 61/2, got these in 6 and fit almost perfect. wear with regular boot / crew socks and quite comfy for walking dog in rain, running errands - so don't get other shoes all wet, or ruined. wouldn't get a smaller size because might be harder to get on/off. got these short style since i'm only 5'2" so these are great height to calf..and can still manage to tuck jeans into boots. really like the gloss since look a bit more fun

I'm so glad I finally purchased a pair of these! I'd debated on it forever and finally gave in. A lot of people say that these run either too large or too small but I chose my regular size (8) and they fit just fine. I bought them in ocean and was expecting a deep grey but it's more of a dark green. Worth the money!!!

I absolutely love these boots. Got them in the "Ocean" color option and I am completely satisfied with them. Even more satisfied when I called Zappos Customer Service to ask them to please try to rush the shipment so I could wear them to an outdoor Xmas event with my hubby and the said due to an increased amount of orders, all shipments were delayed unitil Tuesday next week, but because Zappos is that AMAZING, when I checked my email my boots were on the way for next day delivery (even in Xmas season) so I was a happy girl :) :) Thanks again Zappos!!

Comfortable, however your foot does rise if not wearing thick socks. I usually wear a size 7.5, but size 7 fit in this pair. The color is fabulous.

I bought these as the size 6 was too tight over my insole. The 6 fit length-wise with little room to spare so I hoped that perhaps the 7 would work. Nope, I am swimming int them. Sigh. They are so cute and otherwise would be comfy.

I wear a 6 1/2 and ordered both the size 6 and 7 so I could try on with a boot sock. The 6 fit great with and without the boot sock. Not too tight with the boot sock which was my concern. I am returning the 7. Love these boots too! I am only 5'2" so the shorter height of the boot is more flattering and comfortable than the original tall boot. The black gloss is really nice and these boots will go with everything. I bought the cream cable knit boot sock and it looks adorable. Can't go wrong with these! I want more colors!

I'm a hunter boot addict and these are just par for the course when it comes to style and comfort. This is my first pair of mid- calf hunters. They are very comfortable and true to size.

from Temecula

First purchase with Zappos, as they had the best deal. I originally wanted the matte black adjustable tall boots. I thought it was a sign that the red short boots were on sale AND in my size 10 feet. Did I mention I love red? I love red. In the glossy finish, they look beyond chic. Needless to say, I took a chance and got them in 1 day with buying through the app... I have decent calves and they still have about 1-1.5" of gap. Jeans and leggings both work. Definitely true to size. My opinion, do NOT size down! There is enough room for decent socks and/or liners but not too roomy. Now, I live in sunny Southern CA and while it does not rain often, I just had to have them for those oddball days. If you're contemplating, just buy them! Thank you Zappos!!!!!!!!!

I love these wellies. I wear them any time it is wet outside, even in the snow. The best part is how easy it is to clean them after being out in the nasty weather. They are very comfortable and surprisingly offers enough traction for the slippery winter weather. It felt a little bit bigger but that's just perfect for me because I can switch between thin and thick socks with it. I got the short because I have wide calves and am short at 5'1" but the circumference allows me to still wear my jeans or leggings in them and still have room to move. Because it doesn't offer any arch support, I worried that walking on them all day would be a problem but that's not the case. I did a whole day of shopping in these and my feet or back never once complained.
