Exactly what I was looking for as far as height. I'm 5ft tall so boots typically hit too high at the knee for me. Perfect height for a small frame.

Love the way these boots look. I wear a size 9.5M women's shoe so ordered size 9 based on other reviews; the fit is fine with room for socks. Very much looking forward to wearing them & showing them off.

I really l like the way these look, but they could be more comfortable. They are straight up rubber boots without much cushioning! Also, if you wear them with bare calves the rubber will dig into your calves. Sacrifices for style!

I love these boots! The graphite color is neutral and matches everything. The short boots are a much better fit for me, the tall boots were too tight over my calves and came up too high. The short hit mid calf and I have room for clothes and socks. I'm athletic build and have had 3 children so my body type is average and these fit perfect.

I am so in love! I ordered these late Saturday and had the option of 1 business day shipping. They arrived early yesterday. And just my luck, it was raining. I don't think I've ever been happier to receive an item from Zappos. These Hunter rain boots are great! I ordered my regular 7 and I love the fit. There is plenty of room to have on a thicker sock. I'm on the shorter side, 5'1, and have tried on the taller hunters. But let me tell you, these are perfect for us petite gals. You won't be sorry if you invest in these. I got the moss color and they are going to match just about everything. Can't wait to wear these again! Thank you Zappos for your amazing service.

Love! I originally was going to order the tall but after trying them on at the store decided the short was a better fit. I'm 5'6" and the tall sat right at my knee. They do run large I'm normally an 8.5/9 and I purchased an 8. Great product, can't wait for it to rain!

These are really cute but they are not for muscular calves. I have 16" calves and these with jeans would not work.

I'm not sure why some reviews said to order down. I did that and they were too short. If you're a half size, I'd recommend ordering a half size up, not a half size down. They are great boots, though.

Very nice boot! I'm quite surprised by the number of people who said to size down. I am a true size 7. I ordered both a 6 and a 7 because I wasn't sure which would fit based on the comments. The 7 was a true 7 and the 6 too small. I recommend buying your normal size, as does Hunter.

I ordered these over the regular ones because I am 4'11". These stop at about mid-calf on me. I wear a 6.5 in most shoes. I ordered a 5 in these, and they were a little too snug for my liking, so I exchanged them for a 6. There is a little bit of wiggle room now. I have not worn them out yet, but I love them already!

I am very sad to send these boots back, as I have waited close to a year to find an excuse to have yet another pair of Hunters! Unfortunately, these new Hunters have already been "blooming" in their box - they are covered with the white, dusty film the Hunter company claims is totally normal. I have a newish pair of Hunters which quickly developed this bloom, I followed the recommended cleaning procedure with Hunter products, and as soon as the "shine" dries, the white powder is back. I want fresh shiny boots from the very beginning. Zappos and others should not send out blooming boots!

I love my tall Hunters and I wanted to love these, unfortunately, I wore them four weeks ago and STILL have scars/scabs on the back of my calves from how badly they rubbed against my bare skin. When I wore them around the house to check out the fit they felt totally fine, yet increasing the mileage on the street (walked about 1-1.5 miles) they rubbed the back of my legs raw and bloody. As I bought these to wear in warmer weather, I didn't want to need to wear socks, so this boot just doesn't work for me in the way I intended. Be very sure it won't destroy your calves before wearing them outside of the house. I'm still scarred and paid $150 for the pleasure.

So these boots work exactly as indicated. They keep the rain out and keep my feet warm. They're comfortable and stylish. However, I was a bit disappointed that the shiny finish doesn't last through one wear or out of the box even. The first pair I purchased came all scuffed up and discolored so I exchanged them for a second pair, which Zappos did with no issues. The second pair came and they looked beautiful. I wore them once in the rain and the shiny finish disappeared and looked like the first pair I received. In the future, if I purchase another pair of Hunters I'll be getting the matte version. I'm going to invest in the shine restorer to see if that makes them look like new. Overall, these boots are great. I know they're rain boots and meant to take a beating and the manufacturing quality ensures they'll be able to. However, buy them for the utility and not their beautiful appearance if you intend on using them when it rains.

Love the new boots! So cute in this shorter size! HOWEVER- I have a pair of taller Hunter gloss boots in Fuschia pink and they do not scuff as bad as these! One wearing and the entire inner sides of these boots are totally scuffed and it won't come off I have no idea why or if they are now making them different or what very displeased for the amount of $$$ spent!

I definitely loved the look of this boot and wished that it would have worked for me. I found the boot extremely hard to get on and off which was a deal breaker for me.

This boots are AWESOME! I wear a 7-71/2 and ordered a 7 and they fit perfectly. I can even wear thick boot socks comfortably. I own two pairs of hunter rain boots and these have become my favorites. I own the taller ones but these are more versatile. I will get more colors!

I am petite (5' tall) and wear a size 4 in US women's, but often I can make a size 5 work in boots with thick socks. Not even close on this one. The boots were huge and they hit my calf in an awkward spot. Would not have been comfortable even with thick socks, had the fit been closer. The Graphite color seemed much more of a dull shade than it looks on the site. Trying again with Burberry kids rain boots.

After trying the Original Tall I ended up with the Short mainly because they were easier to get off! Everything about the boot fits great...plenty of room in the calf. They look nice and will be put to good use in the yard and occasional trip to the store. I'm an 8 1/2 and I got the 8 which are just right. I tried the 9 but they were way too big and still difficult to get off! I am able to wear the fleece sock insert too as well as having room for pants legs. (A little harder to take off but still okay.) Overall the short Hunter in gloss is useful, stylish and comfortable.

Cute boot mid calf. It does rub there so make sure you have pants on that reach below mid calf. I thought it was true to size.

A fine boot for rainy spring days. I got the slate blue. I wish now I chose the black it would look better with leggings. Funny at my workouts studio there are three pairs of the identical boot.

I love these boots. I am 5'2" so the short boots are a perfect height on my legs. They are pretty comfortable, and I have enough room to wear thick socks if I need to. I am typically a size 7 and I got a size 7. The color is also beautiful, and goes with everything while still being a pretty blueish slate instead of a typical neutral shade.

I love love love Zappos service with a smile over the phone. Last order I placed I was in the midst of a huge snowstorm. The order taker asked how I was and explained my situation on Cape Cod. She said why don't you come outto sunny Las vegas for a visit and get warm! Oh and I love my boots. Much needed with feet of snow this winter.

What great boots! They are comfortable, warm, and stylish; they were my go-to outdoor footwear this winter, no matter what I was doing. We had a challenging winter in Mass. this year, but these boots stood up to all sorts of weather and could be worn with any outfit. I have wide feet and normally have difficulty finding boots which would fit me properly. I usually wear a 6 1/2 WW. I ordered a 7 in the Hunter. The toe box is nice and roomy and I could wear them all day and still be comfortable. A great product!

Closer to purple than the plum pictured, and much shorter than the photos indicate. Buckle at top is really cheap -- didn't trust that it would last more than a few days. Returning unworn.
