Love these boots. A bit tight for me in the calves but that is because I'm short. Other than that, these are great quality.

I love Hunter wellies! I'm 5'2" so the regular height is too tall for me. These shorties are perfect. I wear with thin wool socks and my feet stay cozy at chilly Pacific NW fall soccer games.

I really wanted to love these boots, but unfortunately this size was a bit large on me. I'll try one size down and see if that works!! As always, Zappos is great!

I live in seasonally rainy climate, and these boots hold up well. They look cute too. I'm a size 5 and have room to wear fleece liners with these if its chilly. I'm short in height (5' 1") and found the Short Gloss to be just tall enough to do the job, but not too tall. The top of other taller styles hit my legs at and odd spot, but these are perfect.

They have sent me two pairs, and every pair have been defective!!!! I'm hoping I can really get a good pair waiting for the next one! Also the wrapping paper that comes with the boots it was not the original! The box was used!!! It just really looked like an used pair!! Very disappointed!

These boots are just as gorgeous as I imagined! I was worried I wouldn't be able to fit in them since I normally have to buy wide calf boots, but the shorter cut fits like a dream. My only worry is that the back rim of the boot rubs pretty substantially into the back of my leg. I would not wear these boots without pants tucked into them, or at the very least tall socks or something to provide a barrier between the back of the boot and my leg.

I love the height of these boots. They're a great to wear with dress pants and they're super comfortable. However, they do run large so you need to order a size down.

I am a about 5'4" tall, so I find mid-calf boots to be the most flattering. I think, these are classy and really comfortable. At first I got scared that they felt very heavy and I even wanted to return them, but after trying lots of other rain boots, I realized that these are just the most comfortable ones because the way the keep their shape. I love them and highly recommend them.

from South Lyon, Michigan

After trying on every kind of Hunter boot, I am finally happy with my purchase of the Original Short boot's! I read all of the reviews and here is my conclusion for my leg: The Original Tall came to the middle of my knee and I'm average height, 5'6. The calf part was not tight like I thought it would be, the adjustable's were suggested because so many said their calves were too big. They both were too heavy and I couldn't cross my legs in them. The Huntress calf part was way too wide for me and made my leg look "stumpy". The Hunter Original Short, however, finally fit me the best. I can cross my legs and I don't feel "clunky" in them. I got an 8 which is what I wear normally, they are a little big but I will have room for socks. I tried the 7 on and my toe was touching the very end which bothered me. Too bad they don't make 1/2 sizes! I went with the Glossy Black so I could use them for both Spring and Winter, Dressy and Non-Dressy. Hope this helps! :)

Loving my boots! I am a 9.5/10 and ordered the 9 and they fit great. I can wear a thin or thicker sock with them. I like the short boot because they are comfortable and do not "fold" at the shin like the tall boots. Zappos shipped quickly and I was excited to see the box on my doorstep!

I love these boots! They are so comfortable! I wore them all winter and still wear them when it rains. I bought the cream socks and they fit the same I think...so cute and get compliments all the time. I bought the cleaner but haven't had to use it. They have not changed colors at all. I don't think the glossy ones do. Got my 18 year old the tall ones that aren't shiny. Just love them!

Buyer beware! I have a beautiful pair of hunter red boots. They are two years old and look like new. I love them and have received numerous compliments. So, I recently decided to purchase another pair. I decided on classic black. I am tremendously disappointed in this boot. They cannot be compared to the red. They are skimpy & far less substantial than the red pair. If you are purchasing hunter for the first time, the difference might go unnoticed. However, if u have older pairs, expect a big difference in how the boot is being manufactured. I believe in order to keep the price the same, hunter has cut down on quality. This is sad because the boots are fairly expensive. I feel I have been cheated. I am also upset...although hunter boots are lovely, I will never purchase from hunter again!

They arrived not glossy nor black. They are actually gray with white scuffs. I went to the Hunter website and it said the whitening happens naturally because of the rubber and you have to use Hunter boot polish to keep up the shine. I have not tried it yet, but I am optimistic that it will work out. I am just a bit disappointed that they did not arrive as pictured (maybe Hunter should include the boot polish with the high gloss boot.)

I wear between a size 8.5 and 9, and my foot is medium- wide. I'm fairly slim, but my calves are medium sized. These fit very well. I went with the nine and am very happy I did. I wore them for a walk in the woods in the rain, and I didn't slip at all. The shine is great. But, if you are like me, and you can't wear filp-flops driving, then I wouldn't wear these driving- they killed my shins. But I have the world's most sensitive shins, so that's probably not going to happen to everyone.

OMG LOVE these!! I have the tall in glossy black, but they hit right at my knee...cute but these are much more comfy and OH SO CUTE! LOVE them. I'm a size 9, and they even seem to fit better in a 9 than the tall do in a 9. Awesome rain boot.

I have extremely large calves and got these boots after trying both the original tall and the huntress. I was worried the short ones would look funny, but they're still just as cute! I definitely recommend these if you have your heart set on Hunters but have larger legs.

I normally wear an 8W or 8 1/2. The size 8 fit good but I have larger calves and not too much room there. I'm not sure heavy socks would work but I am satisfied with the purchase.

I love the Hunter original short gloss boots! I am 5'3" and I originally ordered the tall ones and they were super tall and hit me mid knee which made them very uncomfortable. The Hunter Short fit me so much better and were taller than I expected (in a good way). I got the Welly cable knit socks to go with them which I also love! I wear my boots for everything now rain, shine, or cold! They are super cute, comfortable, and stylish!

Extremely comfortable. Initially ordered the fall ones but if you're short you HAVE to get short boots. The tall doesn't look right!

The boot is a good sturdy boot (this was a gift for my daughter) However when the boot arrived it had a smokey film on them and the boot was not glossy. I used pledge furniture polish on the boots. I had to work in them for a few before they would gloss.
