After receiving these, it was obvious these boots were well made. Rubber is thick, shiny and boots are comfortable. I believe it's money well spent, that these boots will last a long time. My feet haven't gotten wet yet and don't expect that they will in my lifetime while I am wearing these. I'm in my 50s. I wear these when running the dogs in morning dew or just plain wet ground.

Love the Hunters! Had ordered the higher Huntress first but I have very muscular calves and they were too tight. Went with the short version and although they meet at the calf they are a little snug but tolerable.

I have always wanted a pair of Hunter boots. I am plus size and was not sure if they would fit! But they fit great with plenty of room for jeans to be tucked in! I love the height of these boots because I do have chubby short legs so these boots are perfect! I usually wear 11 and the 10 is perfect! And they fit with chunky socks on!

Love these. Pure quality. Bought them for the garden, washing the car, et al. Perfect fit; replaced my old Hunters I literally had for decades.

Love those Wellies!! They do run a bit big, so I ordered a 7 even though I wear a 7 1/2 and they fit great!

First let me say ZAPPOS customer service is simply the best. After a different retailer order was cancelled (without them letting me know) and no response to my email, i kicked myself for not buying these from Zappos the first time around. When you shop with Zappos, there is never a glitch or issue they cant immediately rectify. I ordered a size 10. I wear 9-9.5 and the 10 leaves plenty of room for thick socks. Boots are super cute on! My only concern is the quality reviews now that they are Imported. I guess I'll find out in a year if these get cracks or lose the straps.

Brands I'd also recommend: Gucci, Burberry

Love these! Great for short people or those with large calves. Run big so I ordered a half to one size down.

I'm so glad I sized up to an 8 in these even though I read reviews of them running large. They actually run small in my opinion. I usually wear a 7.5-8 in most brands and the 8 in these fits like a 7.5. They're quite snug putting them on but once on they fit well. There's a lot of extra room around my calves but my legs are quite thin. I'm 5'3" and 106lbs. Overall I love the look and height of these boots. The color is slightly more blue than a true grey. I haven't worn them out yet so that's why I didn't give the comfort rating 5 stars, just because I don't have the experience wearing them much yet. I'll also add that they are a bit heavier and more sturdy than I imagined they'd be, with a nice thick sole.

Great color, they did run big. I ordered one half size smaller than I usually wear, they felt a bit big but with socks are good. I ordered a second pair in a size smaller than the first order, just to make sure. They were definitely too small.

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!
