My daughter loved these, and of course they are well-made by Sperry. Unfortunately the calf was too tight to even put on although it's a wide-calf size. My daughter is a 6'0 tall athlete with muscular legs. I can't find rain boots to fit her. It's sad for a young woman to feel she is too big for any style because of her athletic build. I recommend measuring calf and adding 1/2 inch at least if needed.

This boot is beautiful but I cannot recommend because the boot is not one molded piece, but instead it's seamed and glued (unlike Barbour & Hunters). My daughter is not hard on her shoes and these boots split at the seam. They are wellies meant for puddle stompin' for goodness sake. Construction is a disappointment.

When you live in Oregon, you need a good water-proof boot for the many rainy days. I bought these so I could still walk even in the pouring rain. I wear a 7 1/2 so bought an 8, and still have room for a thick warm sock. More comfortable than I had expected, and I haven't gotten wet when wearing them, so I am sold on these. For a rubber boot, it looks pretty stylish. I bought the Houndstooth and am very happy with them.

These boots are perfect! They fit perfectly over my calves (which are a little large), even in jeans. The soles are really comfortable too!

These just make me smile! I purchased in the houndstooth patterns and absolutely love them! I am so glad that I returned the basic black, boring boots from Hunter (they weren't comfortable, either). Highly recommend these - better built and they are less expensive than Hunter boots. I ordered 1/2 size up as recommended by other reviewers - and glad I did! Thanks!

Satisfied with my purchase. I bought these to use in rain and snow. I live in a big city, and these are comfortable for walking all day. I generally wear a 9.5 in sneakers and a 9 in dress shoes. I debated getting the 10, but opted to stick with the 9 and have been quite happy. These boots look very sharp. My only complaint is that the gold buckle is plastic covered and some of the covering was chipped when they arrived. I can fit skinny jeans inside these, but not my boot cut jeans. Overall, I would definitely recommend these.

These are the most comfortable rain boots I have ever owned. They are cute enough to wear even when it's not raining. My jeans fit perfectly inside and they are warm and cozy.

Very stylish, and a miracle that they fit my 16.5 inch calves. The left boot is defective. The tab will not stay closed, so I'm exchanging them in hopes that another pair will work well. I got the quilted black and they are the most gorgeous rain boots. The lining is warm, and they even have arch support! I'm an 8.5 and I got the 9 and they feel fantastic.

These rain boots are super comfortable and look great -- and I'm glad that I finally had a chance to try them on today -- who would have thought that I would be looking forward to going out of the house on rainy days...

I loved these when I first got them a year ago. They felt like I was wearing sneakers instead of rain boots they were so comfy! However I was thoroughly disappointed when about 2 months ago they ripped all the way up the outer liner from the ankle. Water seaped in and I could no longer wear them. :( For being this cost of rain boots I figured they would last much longer. :( I will not be purchasing these again.

I bought these literally just over a year ago and have worn them maybe ten times in Florida. Yesterday I wore them and they leaked and by the end of the day they were coming apart at the seams. I'm hoping that I will be given some sort of let off given these are specialized shoes for not your everyday wearing occasion. Throughout the year I sorted them in the box they came in under my bed in a controlled atmosphere. Although I have worn them on other rainy days yesterday was truly the first walking through a big puddle situation and they failed miserably. I'm gutted as I loved them.

I wear size 8/8.5 shoes, have wide feet and find that buying a size up with Sperry boots works for me. These are comfortable and definitely keep the rain out. Do get a set of socks to go with if you need to keep your feet warm.

These were cute, but a little too big and I just didn't love them. I normally wear a size 5.5 and ordered the size 6.0 and they were too big even with thick socks. I would exchange them if they had a size 5.0, but alas...they do not. Bye bye shoe!

I bought these and I love them, they look so cute and are way more affordable than the hunters and honestly cuter in my opinion. I recommend getting a half a size larger than your regular shoe size!

I love these boots! They fit perfectly and I ordered my normal shoe size, true 7. They are snug around the foot but not too snug around the calves. I wore them in the snow yesterday and had tons of compliments!

Very comfortable rain boots with lots of cushioning. The quilted look also makes them look less like rain boots. I ordered a half-size smaller and the boots fit great. I normally wear an 8 1/2.

I bought these for my daughter-in-law for Christmas and they are beautiful (very Chanel looking). I purchased a size 7, which is what she wears and they fit perfectly. They are feminine yet durable looking! They were a hit!

These boots are amazing! I normally wear a size 6 but with the lining and wanting to wear them with jeans and thicker socks I went up a size. They were perfect! I usually have a BIG problem with boots never fitting my athletic calves but these were perfect. So much better than Hunter's, those are so cold and uncomfortable.

I got these about a week ago. I've worn them in both snow and rain and they are wonderful! Kept my feet warm and dry. I normally wear a size 8 and 1/2 and based on reading the other reviews, I went up a half size to a 9. They fit perfectly. I have larger calves and they fit really well, I can wear them with leggings and skinny jeans. I'm 5'2 and they come to about 1 inch below my knee.

I love these boots! They have just enough detail to them to not be too plain, but they still match a lot of clothes. I have worn them shopping several times and they are also very comfortable.
