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!!

The boots are a little big in the foot, but fit well in the calf area. I got them more for the mud when walking through the fields with the dogs and they keep my feet very dry. They are also very easy to maintain. I was a little bummed that the gloss finish did not last. I have tried to wipe them off, and it does not seem like they will ever be glossy again. But I do like the boots and would buy again and recommend.

I love my new rain boots they fit and look great. If you are a half size and are not going to wear really thick socks, I would order a size down.

Love the short Hunters! I was looking for something easy to slip on and off. I wear a 7 1/2 and ordered a 6 (that’s what I do with Uggs), but the 6 was too small with a thick sock. The 7 is perfect. And they are comfortable and cute as well!

Great boots and a great height! The only issue I have is that Hunter doesn't make any inserts that fit this mid-calf size boot (this height is new this year). I wish they did so I could wear them in colder weather.

I bought these for my daughter, who is 5'4" and found the tall version a little too high. She's thrilled with these, and the size 7 fit her 7.5 foot beautifully. Very pleased with both product and service.

These boots are fabulous! The gloss gives them a sophisticated look. I love to wear them with jeans on a casual day. They are comfy and cozy. I can't wait to purchase them in red!

Great practical rain boot. Not for fashion, but very functional. I like the shorter height because it doesn't make it as difficult to walk, and the boots aren't as heavy. They are perfect for light walking, short distances, on flat ground such as sidewalks. If you are going to be in torrential downpours or a muddy field, you may want the taller boots. I also found these boots to be very roomy in the toe box. I have wide feet and these were comfortable when I wore a thin pair of socks. The gloss boots are not too shiny. It's just enough to keep them from looking so industrial. The low heel is nice and makes it easier to walk (as opposed to no heel). This brand is a little more expensive than others, but worth it.

We recently had a huge snowstorm and I finally got fed up with walking around for the past umpteen winters without the proper footwear. I decided it was time for a weatherproof pair of boots. A friend of mine has these in the original tall version which are obviously taller and not as shiny. She wears hers with blue Welly socks and I always loved the way they looked on her (for a rain boot that is) and she absolutely swears by them in bad weather. She said they make her feel invincible to the bad weather. She is also several inches taller then me (I'm 5'2"), so I decided to order the shorter boot in the gloss. Great choice! The height of these is definitely better for my short frame than the originals. I also like the glossiness because it is a bit dressier which allows me to wear these all day at work with slacks as opposed to hauling a second pair of shoes around on bad weather days. I am a size 7 and ordered a 7. They are a bit roomy, but just fine with really thick socks. Thick socks are a must with these, or else they tend to make your foot feel cold. Your feet will also sweat in these without a good absorbent sock. My only disappointment so far is that I have been unable to determine if Hunter makes Welly socks for these short boots. I can't seem to find them or an answer as to whether they are available anywhere. I really wanted the Welly socks and that was one of the reasons I ordered Hunter boots as opposed to another brand. Well, hopefully I'll find them. Other than that, great boots!

I just got these boots today and I love them! I originally ordered the Original boots, but they were to tight on my calves, so I ordered the shorts and they are awesome! I wish they made shorter wellie sock to go with them, but the ones that I have work just fine! The greatest part is that I called customer service last night at 8 pm to return the others, and my new boots were here by 4:30 pm today! Great service Zappos! I can't wait to place my next order! You made online ordering so easy. I love it!

I first tried on Hunter boots at Nordstrom in Tampa, FL in November. Ended up getting the Burberry rain boot instead because it was on sale and because I didn\'t see any black Hunter short boots. I couldn\'t stop thinking about these and finally broke down and got a pair. I don\'t have Kate Moss calves, so the short boots work best for me. I\'m a shoe size of 7.5 normally. In boots, I\'m an 8, 8.5, and 9, depending on the cut (Uggs - 8, Dolce & Gabbana - 8.5, etc.). I wasn\'t interested in the original Hunter boots because of the whole "blooming" waxy thing they do. So I figured the gloss would be a better option, plus they look like patent leather. These boots run big. I\'m a US size 7 in these boots. Same with the Burberry rain boots. They hit me mid calf, so no awkard scrunching effect like on the taller boots. I wish they made the fleece insoles for the shorter boots as I\'m going to try these out when I go snow tubing in a couple of weeks. I think these will be wonderful for walking around in the snow. Zappos was extremely fast in shipping. I ordered these between 9am-10am (EST) yesterday and had them by late lunch today. Very pleased with my order.

These boots are perfect for rainy Seattle weather. They're very comfortable, but require thick socks when it's cold because they are not built for warmth. I normally wear a size 6.5 and a 37 fits perfectly with enough room for thick socks. I am only 4'11" so these look more appropriate on me than the tall version of this boot. The gloss look is very sassy and I receive compliments whenever I wear them.

Love my hunter wellies! These are great boots; order a size down and you will not regret it. And I love Zappos, too! I ordered the taller hunters first and after finding out I'm too short (I'm 5 foot 1 and a half) I asked if I could ship them back and exchange them for the shorter boots and I didn't even have to wait for the taller ones to get shipped back; they just sent the shorter ones right away!

I first tried the regular boot, but I'm barely 5'2" and they were too tall for me. This short boot is the perfect size. It is wonderful for wet western Washington weather. I get to stay dry in style.

Great boots but they're too big (size 9). But no worries, customer service immediately processed a new order for a size 8. Great Service! Piece of advice ladies, if you don't plan on wearing the "wellie socks", you could probably go down one size. As for me, I'm going to use my regular winter socks. I'm so glad Hunter made these in Gloss. The gloss gives the boot sort of a classy look. Due to the gloss, I doubt if they will turn ashy white like the Original boot. The gloss boot goes well with jeans, but they will also look great with work attire such as slacks or skirts. Thank you Zappos & Hunter.

Great boot, sturdy, well-made, good looking. Some sizing comments: my calves are too thick and muscular (16" circ.) to wear the original high boot; the shorter version is a bit snug, but okay. I am typically a 9 1/2 wide, with a high instep. I listened to some of the reviews and ordered down to a 9, which almost worked with thin socks (a little hard to get on and off), but did not work with a welly sock underneath. Had to go up to a 10, which is what I usually do with boots. FYI, the welly sock will work with the shorter boot; you just have to fold or scrunch the top down a bit.

Great boots! I was worried about the taller version since I am 5'5"; thought they would look silly and not stylish. These are comfortable and keep my feet dry from the elements. I have worn them with jeans tucked in and with leggings. Not great for long periods of time; let's face it, they are rubber and your feet don't breathe. Hunter is a wonderful brand with exceptional quality. I ordered up a half size because I have a wide foot and wear thick socks in the winter. They are a tad bit loose, but I loathe tight boots. Buy them & thank me later.

Totally cool! Love these! Nothing like looking hot in a pair of rain boots. Recommend getting the liners though - need them for warmth! They look good, fit well and are easy to walk in.

I have several pairs of Hunter boots, but I much prefer this shorter version. I always struggled with the taller ones being to tight on my calves hence no room to tuck my jeans into the boots. I am always watering, walking through wet grass, washing an animal;you name it and these boots have never failed me. I do however slip around in them a bit especially walking down hill, but I fixed that issue by putting Ugg insole replacements in them. Now they are perfect. I only have the traditional green, but am tempted to order another color for variety.

I ordered the Hunter boots for my daughter. She is a counselor at a sleep away camp, so I can\'t comment on comfort, but I can say, they are very well made and I am certain her feet will stay dry!She loved the look of the boot, and any rain boot that an 18 year old will wear, says a lot for the shoe!! Enjoy!

I was initially hesitant about buying a pair of rain boots at this price, but considering I was unfortunate enough to have a pair that… let’s just say didn’t keep the water out of my shoes, I buckled down and gave these Hunter Boots a try. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE BOOTS. I’m a 10 in Women’s, but easily fit a size 8 in Women’s. You might want to do a size or two down from what you actually wear. I like the short Hunter rain boots because there’s more flexibility in them compared to the taller version. They have that old English charm to them and I have loved them the minute I brought them. They are well worth the money.

Love the aubergine/purple color. Had to order a full size smaller. Be sure to wear socks or knee highs so your feet don't get stuck inside. My large calves just fit. No room to tuck in pants, but at least my feet will be dry!
