LOVE the boots, HATE the color (Merlot should be called "brownish red"). The way the color shows up on the website it look more pink than brown, and in person, they are almost entirely brown. Very odd color. But that's minor. I'm returning for Graphite! So comfortable!

I love Hunters, but I will never buy another pair. I have been through three pairs in as many years. Each year the boots crack and fail at the part where the boot flexes (on the sides of the ball of your foot). I have had cheapo rubber K-Mart boots that lasted 10 years so I would think for the price these guys could do better. Too bad as they are the best fitting and most comfy rubber boots I have found. Still, buying then is just throwing away money if you plan to wear them more than every once in a great while.

I was so excited to finally get a pair of Hunter rain boots; I'd been coveting them for a while! These are perfect! They're not too tight in the calf, which I was worried about, and they're the perfect size to wear with socks (I usually wear a 7.5 or 8; I ordered the 8). The color is really nice, a pretty coral: bright, but not as orange as it looked on my computer.

These boots are fantastic! They are my first pair of rain boots ever and I am glad I invested in such quality. They fit my feet perfectly and hit right under the knee. The only complaint in regards to comfort is that if you have to sit on the ground or cross your legs, the tops may cut into your thigh a little. Style-wise, they do not make your calves look chunky or anything like that. The buckle allows you to tighten them as much or as little as you can. The color options are great, too! The only other strange thing is that it says in the maintenance book that comes with the boots that they should not be stored in natural or artificial sunlight. I'm not sure if it actually damages them, but if that could be an issue for you, you should research it.

Love these! After coveting them for years & almost buying a few different colors, I ended up getting the Flame color and I'm so happy. Beware - these are bright! But coral is my absolute favorite color & it helps when I'm homesick for Florida in the Chicago snow. I bought these after returning a pair of beautiful Sorel's (they wore a hole in my Achilles, so uncomfortable) and I was worried they wouldn't keep me warm in the snow. I added a pair of Hunter welly socks and they are every bit as warm as my Sorels were. Bonus - they go up higher, so no matter how much the snow piles up or how deep the slush puddle is, my pants stay dry and clean. Love these boots & can't wait to wear them in the rain when it's warmer. If you have muscular calves, they're hard to take on and off with the welly socks. They're fine with just jeans or leggings, but I have to pull with the socks. Otherwise they fit true to size, don't order up or down.

I love these boots. If you are a half size, I suggest ordering down a size. I tried ordering up first and they were way too big.

Chartreuse is darker and less yellow than pictured, as others have mentioned. To me it looks like a martini olive color. I knew this going in, so that was what I expected. I usually wear a 9½, got them in 10 and they fit great for me. I own a pair of short gloss Hunters which I got in 9 that are too small, so I learned my lesson with those. Fall is just around the corner, so I look forward to splashing through some puddles with my new Hunters.

I usually wear a 7.5 for most shoes, so I ordered a size 8. They were just a teeny bit too small, especially with the Hunter Moss Welly Sock. I ordered the Flame color for the boot, and it was very true to the color that I saw on the screen. They're a super cute, bright color that's perfect for rainy days! I just exchanged the boots for a size larger, as well as a larger size in the socks. I'm not sure about the durability of these boots yet, but I know that they're the exact look that I was going for...now I'm hoping for rain!

The color is more purple than ruby. One of the most comfortable boots that I own! I wear them all the time. The size is a little big, but the perfect size for 2 pairs of wool socks in the winter. I'm sure when I purchase fleece liners they will fit more snug.

I bought my very first pair of Hunter boots. I am very excited and I love the boots. I wear an 8½ normally so I got the size 8 since I read all the reviews that said they run large. I wish that I had gotten the 9. The boots are fine in the foot, but very snug around my calf. I wish that I would have bought two pairs to try them on to compare them. I like a little more room than I have. Live and learn. These are gorgeous boots!

These really do run big! If you wear a half size, I definitely suggest ordering down. Even with thick socks a half size up was falling off of me. A great wellie, though!

I am in love & I haven't even worn them yet! They are so comfortable & flexible but don't seem like they will destruct after good wear. I am a size 10 & have the size 10 which fit perfect with socks. A bit snug with the Welly's but on cold days I will just wear thin socks or no socks depending.

I love these boots! The color looked just like they did online and they are super comfy! I am usually a 9 1/2 but went a half size down and they fit perfect. They are very easy to clean after walking through snow, ice, and salt.

Received the boots in a timely manner. The boots fit well and look great. Both my daughter and I bought a pair. We love the shinny finish better than the dull finish and have gotten lots of complements on them!

These are awesome boots! This is my fourth pair of Hunters! This color is so cute, I get tons of compliments! They look great with welly socks! And that is the only way to keep your feet warm in these rubber boots! The free overnight shipping that Zappos offers is truly amazing, they know customer service like no other online shopping site. And this was the best price for these particular boots and color on the web! Thanks!

I live in Indiana and the weather here is pretty crazy, especially this winter. We've had tons of snow and these are perfect! I'm 5'10" and a size 10 shoe so I ordered these with the fleece welly socks. I feel like a prostitute when I wear these with my yoga pants, but it's just too comfy. Perfect for digging your car out of the snow on 10 degree days as well as wearing without the welly socks on warmer, wet days. I love the white/enamel color as well. This is my first pair, so we will see how they hold up after time, but so far I love them.

I went out on a limb with the color, as my wife loves green. I was thinking a little bit different than the standard dark green look like all the others. She gets compliments all over town, her friends love them...and she's happy as a wee clam. Great boots, no matter what color...but if you're thinking green, these are very stylish I'm told by the ladies.

These are exactly what we wanted and expected and arrived exactly when I was told to expect them. I normally wear a size 7 and had to get a 6 in these boots. They fit perfectly. Even with thick socks.

I have wanted these boots since they came around and yet, never could justify buying them living in Florida. We rarely get below 70 degrees! Anyways, my husband purchases these for me for Christmas this year and it was love at first sight. The day after Christmas I was shopping on Zappos and saw that these boots were on sale. I reached out to Zappos via online chat and had the most amazing customer service ever! I was advised that the 10 day return had already expired,, however they would honor the sales price and credit us back the difference. From the minute of minute we starting chatting she was friendly and helpful. I truly appreciate the customer service I received and will always shop at Zappos!

I ordered these boots and it said free one business day shipping. I was like great! but I didn't expect them to come the next day! These boots are so cute. I got the crimson pink. They add a cute flair to any outfit and are super comfortable especially with the socks! My package came so fast boots and socks together in one package. Another thing is there not too heavy. LOVE THEM!

I love this boot. It color is a great mix between eggplant and burgundy. The shine is not overwhelming as it might look in the photos. It runs true to size, especially if you wear socks. Makes me want to splash in a puddle!

These boots are such a great way to brighten up a rainy day and add a big pop of color in pink. I ordered a half size larger so I could wear boot liners with them and don't get my foot stuck in them. You'll have these boots forever if you care for them!
