I've been looking for the perfect rain boot for a while and this is it! Comfortable, goes with everything and a great fit. I normally wear 8 to 8 1/2 and the 8 fit perfect with plenty of toe room.

These boots are definitely 1 size too big. I wear a size 9 in all types of shoes, but the 9 in these were way too big. Ordered an 8 and they seem to fit fine. I probably wouldn't wear them with thick socks anyway, since I usually wear thin athletic ankle socks.

I love my wellies! The color is really nice too! Not like fire hydrant red but more of a wine red color. I wanted the tall wellies but i have ginormous calves for a short girl (5'1 with 16 inch calves), so I opted for the short wellies. It comes right below my calves, so it fits just right. Being that they're rubber, it's a little on the heavy side, but hey, as long as they keep my feet dry during monsoon season, it's all good! :)

Love these! They were the perfect height since I am short (5'2). My only complaint was that the calf was really big, but I have really small calves. I kept them anyways because they still looked really cute and the grey color goes with everything. It was also a lot more roomy than I expected - if you plan on wearing thick socks with these, your normal size is perfect. These shoes are extremely comfortable.

I love my Hunter Wellies. They are great boots for the rainy season. I like that they have a little heel so they are more comfortable to walk all around the city in. Must have rainy season boot. The cornflower color is so cheery, you will forget it is even raining!

Best rain boots ever! I bought these in the smoke color. It's a very pretty light grey that matches pretty much with anything. I used to be a loyal Burberry rain boot gal, but got really bored of the pattern (also not super comfortable). Changed over to Hunter after buying my mom a pair and she was ranting and raving about how comfortable they were. I normally wear a 7.5, but a 7 fit perfectly, even with insoles/orthotics. Really love them!

It's worth the investment to get rubber rainboots like the Hunter brand, not the cheaper plastic imitations. These are also stylish, comfortable, and made to last.

I have worn these almost everyday since I got them! Best rain/mud boots I've ever owned. Shorter height make them easy to slip on and off. They are practical on the farm and cute enough to where out.

I just got these boots in burnt orange and I love them! I'm wearing them as I write this. They are so comfortable and are a really pretty color. A little darker than the picture, but that's what I had hoped for. I'm looking forward to getting these in another color and can't wait to wear them in the rainy weather tomorrow!

I own the classic Hunter Wellington rain boots and I love them. I ordered these because when I ride my bicycle in the rain, they're too tall. These fit the bill perfectly and are super cute.

After much debate on what color to choose, I went with the Steel Blue. The color is darker in person, but still a gorgeous shade of blue. The glossy shine is really nice and more feminine. I normally wear a size 8.5 and the 8 is a perfect fit. This is my first pair of Wellies, and I am already dying for another pair in another color. Love them!

I love these boots. You don't have to worry about which pants you wear, nor the width of your calf as most all will fit. The steel blue color is much prettier than the picture. (I did check other websites before ordering for better photos of the colors.) I get compliments every time I wear them. They help brighten a dreary day.

I have been wanting to get a pair of rain boots for a long while since I take my dog to the dog park twice a day and with the summer rains it is impassable in some places with 20' long puddles. Well, today my pair of Hunter Short Gloss boots in Orchid showed up! Woo hoo! I love them! I usually wear 7 1/2 with 7's often being too small since my feet have spread wearing mostly sneakers over the recent 10 years. I bought the 7's in the Hunters because the European size is 38 and that translates to a 7 1/2 for my feet. They were comfortably roomy with just regular socks, but they have very little arch support. I put in some insoles for more arch support and they fit now like they were made for my feet! For fit, go with what you know is your European size. If you don't know that, then just choose a half size smaller and you should be fine. If you have heavy calves, choose the short boots. The Orchid color is a nice, soft lavender which I love! I am ready for the puddles and the splashing my feet get when I hose off the dog after her puddle romp! Bring it!

I bought the Wisteria color in size 8 when I caught them on sale... I can't justify paying full price for galoshes that I won't wear very often. I normally wear a size 8.5 in shoes, but ordered down a bit after reading other reviews. Size with thick socks fit just fine. I have worn these out camping and my feet started to get warm after a couple of hours... not much ventilation obviously! I prefer the short boot to the taller boot... easier to pull on and off and you can wear them with cute tube socks. (I tried on the Hunter socks and just wasn't impressed with the fit of those.) I like the look of the mid-calf boot so I'll be sticking with these. The Wisteria color is fun, too. In my opinion, not worth full price, but go for it if you can find them on sale.

Overall I really like these boots. However, the color in person is very different than how they appear online, at least on my monitor. In person they are exactly like split pea soup, more green than I expected.

I have wanted this boot forever (in violet) and I am glad I bought them. However, if you are a woman like me with a large calf, these boots are a little tight and will leave a burn/rub mark on your leg. I am a slave to fashion so I will figure something out.

Have a 15" calf and these fit, and I can tuck pants into them. I had a a hard time deciding between the fuchsia and red, but the fuchsia is so pretty and shiny! Normally a size 8.5 (right foot) -9 (left foot), I went with the size 8 and they work well. Kept my feet dry. I do need something warmer than regular cotton knee highs. Feels a little weird with the top of the boot pressing against the front of my leg, but I have a feeling that happens with most rainboots. Okay support, wouldn't want to wear them all day long, but they work to walk the kids to school in pouring rain.

Have seen some reviews that suggest going down a size from what you normally wear, but I'm a size 8.5 US and needed a 9 in both this style -- Hunter Short -- and in Hunter's Arnie style -- to accommodate my foot's higher arch. I love both these Hunter rain boot styles and get compliments on them from total strangers. I moved to Portland, OR from Manhattan and for 1/2 the year can't wear any of my gorgeous leather boots because of the rainfall. Hunter boots help make up for the loss -- especially the Arnie high-heeled style!

As with the other reviews, these boots are amazing! However, I'm a seven and they seemed a bit small. And, the color is absolutely off. The boots are much darker than the picture shows.

I love these boots, they are well made, comfortable and super cute. My only complaint is that the color is way off. I ordered the steel blue which online look like a dark robin's egg blue, but in reality it is more of a dark peacock blue/green. I still love the color, but if you are ordering it to match something in particular, don't count on the photo.
