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 love the style and height. The top might be irritating to the bare leg so would probably work best over pants or with socks. I am returning because I did not like the color (pink) but will exchange for a different one.

I love everything about these boots, they look great, and best of all they are 100% water proof. And if you have a wider calf, like me, these fit great unlike most of the tall rain boots out there. I generally wear a 5.5-7, depending on the kind of shoe. I went with a 6 in these and they fit perfectly. I got Clementine, and the color is beautiful.

I wear a 6, but bought a 7. The 6 was too small once I put the sock in it. The 7 fit perfectly with the fleece sock.

Bought the shorts for my wife because she is 5'3" and I thought they looked better and more functional. At first she was perplexed because they weren't the original style. She is now in love with them 'as much as her Uggs'. She also says they are 100% waterproof and as comfortable as a rain boot could be.

The Lipstick Pink is a great color. But boot fits weird. The foot bed is very roomy,but the shaft is too small. I found them uncomfortable for walking. If you normally wear tall boots, then these will work fine. Not for us plus size girls with large calves. Had to return them.

Love the boot. I cant believe how comfortable they are, I wear them all day. I have thinner calves so I was worried they might be too wide, but fit great. I usually wear 7 in shoes and ordered 7 in these-they fit perfect. Also ordered charcoal socks, but they did not match very well.

Loved these boots but even with a short they were hard to get on and too tight to tuck in my skinny jeans. I suppose I have what is considered a big calf but maybe I'm also just short enough that they came up too far to be comfortable. Have to send them back… disappointed. I'm still giving them a 5 for quality.

Excellent boot! They run a little big but that's OK because I'm most likely going to be wearing socks with them. I got the bright red color and they are absolutely eye catching! Will be wearing these relentlessly throughout springtime.

I wear 9.5. The 9 was absolutely perfect in the foot and the 10 was way too large so if you're firmly in half-size territory, I would definitely order down. However, if you have wider calves, even with a tall sock these will dig in when you walk. I wore them around the house for 5 minutes and while it wasn't unbearable, it definitely wouldn't be fun to walk around in these for an hour. I really wanted these to work but they're not for wide calf ladies. *Sad face*

Love these! The taller style didn't have room for me to tuck in my pants, so I exchanged them for this shorter style. Perfect -- pants are tucked in, they're still tall enough to keep snow out, they're moderately supportive, and best of all -- they do not smell like a tire store. I also bought the fleece sole inserts, so they're toasty enough for this Chicago winter.

For me, these boots did not run big. I originally purchased the Hunter short boot in a half size smaller than I normally wear. I am a 7 1/2 and the 7 was too tight to get on and off and not much toe room. I ordered the 8 and it was a much better fit for me with room for thicker socks or a sheepskin liner for added comfort. I also found when I walked, the back of the boot pressed against my calf. I'm sorry to say the second pair is going back not due to the fit so much as to the condition of the boots when they arrived. I don't know how many people tried on the boots before they arrived at my doorstep, but they looked awful right out of the box….not the new look you expect when paying this price.

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.
