I had tried several less expensive pairs of rain boots before I decided to splurge on these. It was worth it! They are super comfy and the color is great. With the Hunter fleece socks they are great, but they are great with regular socks too. I am 5.2 and found this shorter height to be just right (taller boots in the past have been very uncomfortable).

The color on the red boots is exactly as shown. I haven't had a chance to wear these yet but, they fit true to size and are very comfortable. If you have larger calves, beware. They do fit snuggly around the calf area.. Fitted. Nice, sturdy fashionable rain boot. Not much arch support. It's a boot!

Bought these to wear on my first trip to NYC! They are very cute, but with that much walking they cut into my legs pretty badly. I wish I would have also bought some "wellie socks" to protect my legs!

I live in Oregon so obviously, rain boots are in good order. I've dealt with cheaper rain boots but they've all failed to last, usually ending with a huge gaping hole on the side. Finally, after much consideration and deliberation, I chose to go with the original Wellington boot from Hunter and I am so happy! The materials are wonderful - these boots are made to last! - and after a month and a half of constant walking and exposure to rain, they're hole-free! I got the short height to accommodate my 'athletic' calves and they're perfect, as long as you wear pants tucked in or long socks as the rubbing is not comfortable on bare skin. I wear a size 7/7.5 so I got the UK size 5 (US size 7) and I find that they are a tiny bit loose with boot socks. Mayhaps Welly socks are next on the list? Also, I got them in red and love that they add a pop of color to any ensemble. Thank you Zappos for a great shopping experience and for having the amazing Hunter boots.

These boots are perfect in the rain. However, I always bring another pair of shoes to switch out once I'm inside. They aren't comfortable enough for all day wear, but no boots are better for keeping your feet dry!

I love these boots! They are very good looking and are a good height for a petite person. I ordered my usual size even though a lot of the reviews said they ran big. When I received them they were roomy, but the extra room allowed me to put in an insole I had purchased for running shoes that have great arch support and now they fit like a glove even with socks on!

These are the cutest boots, but as other reviewers have noted, they run about a size too large. They fit perfectly around my calves, and are a great height for my short frame (I'm 5'2"). Can't wait for rainy season here in San Francisco!

Great fitting boot. Agree with others to order a smaller size than usual. I wear a size 6 shoe and boot, and I ordered one size smaller. It fit perfect! The quality on these boots is great.

These boots are great! I decided to go with a boot that was shorter to fit my calves, rather than wait for the other boots to fit better. Love these! Sturdy, cute, durable.

These are great for the rain. I wear a 7M and I bought a 7. They are a bit roomy, but I know the 6 would not have fit. With the extra room I can wear thick socks and tuck in my jeans or work pants. I am 5 foot 1 and these hit me mid calf. The regular size boots would have been too long for me.

Wow, I read all the good things about these boots, but figured it was a bit of hype. However, the boots really are very comfortable (nothing poking at your foot, no seams, etc.) and much lighter than I thought they would be. They fit like a rain boot size should; bigger than a cowboy boot, but not sloppy.

Great rain boots! I thought I'd buy a pair since it rains frequently during the hurricane season in the south. They're comfortable and I like this short style better than the original tall ones because I'm petite.

I ordered these in black at 10 pm my time, and still received them the next day. Zappos, I don't know how you do it, and how you do it for free, but I will forever be a customer for the free overnight shipping. But speaking of these boots-run a tad on the big side, but with thick socks I would say order your normal size, thin socks, 1/2 size down. They are even prettier in person. Very shiny and look great with jeans tucked into them. Thinking of ordering the beige as well after next paycheck. This boot is worth the money if you want to look good in the rain.

Bought these shoes for a trip to London, expecting rain (which only came at the times I was not wearing these shoes). I am a true size 7. I followed the advise of others and ordered both the Size 7 and 6 as many people said these ran big. I ended up keeping the smaller one (size 6) which fit great with a thinner sock.

This boot rocks. Purchased initially for the Jazz Fest in New Orleans, which always has some rain days. The grey is perfect because it\'s not too dark like black. Also, I am petite, so the short looks better on my legs than the long. I wore them with long socks that just barely peeked out of the boot. Wondered what all the fuss was about, now I know. Expensive, but seem durable for years of wear.

Have had the same tall version of this boot for several years and love them for when it's really mucky out in the rainy season and in the garden and running errands in the winter. However, while the tall boots are very comfortable when on, they're a bit of a challenge getting on and off, so am loving having the option of the short boots for summer weather and feel I can justify the extra 'splurge' on these as I've really found no other better footwear for gardening. They also look great with a short or long rain coat. I wear a 7 1/2 and find the woman's 7 fits fine as they do run large. With socks I can wear them comfortably all day working outside. My husband recently bought me a pair of the Hunter clogs which are great too, especially for quick in and out trips to the stables and the garden when I just want a slip on that can get dirty and wet and be ready to take on all the abuse again the next day after just a quick rinse off(unlike my old athletic shoes or riding boots!) They also look fine for running errands, going to kid's games, etc. They're definitely worth a try, especially with Zappos free shipping.

I am 4'11 and I purchase the short high gloss black willies I love them. The high gloss makes the boot more style's so you don't feel as though your wearing boots for gardening. If your are short I recommend getting the short boot because the original ones comes up too high, you look like your wearing fish flying boots. They run true to size with enough room for warm socks. I can't say enough about the staff they were wonderful. I was on the phone with them for at least 30 minutes trying to decide which boot to go with and I must have called back at least 3 times to change my order. The whole experience was great.

After reading the reviews, I ordered a size smaller as suggested. I always take an 8, ordered a 7. They were too small. Since I wanted to be able to wear them with thicker socks, I sent them back and got 8's. They are fine with thick socks. If they came in half sizes, that would have been perfect. However, they are comfortable, lightweight and look nice. I ordered the Granite. It seemed more casual and springlike than the black gloss. Nice to not have to worry about stepping in puddles! They are worth the money. I think they'll last a long time!

I wear these boots to work everyday. I spend the whole day on my feet and in wet and slippery conditions. These boots are wonderful and have not let me down. For the first time, my feet don't hurt when I get home. I have several pairs of rubber boots, but the Hunter boots are the only ones that I wear now. Well worth the price and I will only buy Hunter boot from now on. They definitely pass the comfort and durability test for me everyday...and trust me I put them through heck on a daily basis. Thank you Hunter!

These are awesome if you're not super tall. The tall length hunters were too much shoe for me (5’4”). Order a size down and you'll do yourself a favor. Love my new Hunters.

I have these short boots in turquoise and yellow, and I love them! Now I can’t wait for it to rain this spring so I can wear them. I normally wear a size 7 to 7.5, and these fit me great in a size 6. However, there is very little extra room, so I can only wear thin socks, but that’s not a problem since these are warm-weather rain boots. I’d recommend sizing down as much as possible, since you don’t want your feet to look any bigger than necessary while you’re running around with big colorful rubber things on your feet!

These are great for rainy weather & coupled with the welly socks, can be used as winter boots. They feel lighter than most rain boots & don’t have that "cloppy" feeling.

Depending on the shoe I wear either a 6 1/2 or 7. I ordered both the 6 and 7 of these and planning on returning the ones that don’t fit. I do agree with other comments on here - they do run A TAD roomy (if you are barefoot) - HOWEVER… If you are planning on buying the socks that go with them, OR wear thick socks, OR plan on tucking your pants into them I would order your normal size. I kept the size 7 b/c once I put thick socks on and tucked my jeans into them, they fit very comfortably. The size 6 with thick socks and pants tucked in ended up being too tight. Hope this helps!!
