Cute boot and true to color, but I made the mistake of also trying a (much more costly) Aigle rain boot in the same order, and Chooka is simply nowhere near the top-notch feel, comfort and quality of the Aigle rain boot. If Chooka was the only boot out there, I would be very pleased to get it. It would be a good Wellie for gardening and being in the yard in the rain. But I'll be living in my rubber boots once the rains begin, walking a lot on mixed surfaces -- pavement, sidewalk, roadside edges with no sidewalk but a lot of mud and roots, plus the garden and yard in the rain. Aigle's insole was built up inside, softly lined, solid, and the shaft very soft, and it wiped the plain insole of Chooka from my options in a single step. Chooka is well priced for what it is and how charming the style -- for not much more than the Wellies at the feed store, you get as solid and durable a boot (and much cuter!). But the Aigles won in a walk. Sorry, Chooka, I did love the color.

I wanted these boots to work. I love the color! But they are way too big and "bunchy" in the ankle area. The material folds and bunches in a weird way. Had to return them.

These Chooka rain boots are exactly as advertised on the site. The rubber is flexible so walking is easy, they come up to upper shin level so they aren't like a booty, but a solid boot style, and they feel like quality material that looks nice in person too. I decided to go up a size to accommodate my not very skinny calves and to wear thick socks for rainy Portland Oregon winters. Excellent choice on my part, they fit perfect now. (I am normally an 8, bought a 9 instead.) I love them and love the buckles on the side. Very simple, classic, and cute.

I bought these boots for the rainy weather we have in the pacific northwest, and mainly to go traipsing around at the dog park with the pooch. Great boots, both functional and fashionable! The only disclaimer, if you have muscular calves they may fit a little tight. Otherwise, great fit.

Very cute! I am always a size 9, but these size 9s seemed enormous, so I'm very glad I read a previous review and also ordered a size 8 (which fits perfectly).

Very nice rubber boot (olive is a nice colour) but I am usually a true size 9 and in these barefoot my toes were grazing the ends. With socks they would have been slightly too short. Close to a wide width though. Calf-wise I think they're perhaps just shy of the 16 in circumference they mention for the 9. Bare legged I could have worn them but again not with tights or any sort of tucked in pant leg. They seemed comfy otherwise and well made...the thin insoles could easily be replaced with something else or taken out to wash.

These didn't last even one season. Good looking and comfortable but they split down the back seem (the entire length of the boot) mid way through winter. Granted I wore them every day for dog walks but for this kind of money they should last longer.

As much as I love these rain boots for style and comfort, I am unhappy with the quality. It rains a fair amount here in the Pacific Northwest, I walk my dogs daily through the forest, where we do encounter puddles. After only a short time, my boots started leaking. Sorry but I cannot endorse these.

After reading other reviews, maybe it is possible that I received a faulty pair, however these are the worst boots I have ever bought. I live in downtown Chicago and wanted a boot that was versatile in the rain and snow. Wearing these boots throughout the snowy winter was downright miserable. My feet were wet and cold constantly, as the boots don't have any sort of lining whatsoever. I thought with the price and the look that these boots would suffice, but I was wrong. Again, other people seem to be pleased but they did not meet the basic requirement of keeping my feet dry. Cold, wet feet=unhappy girl.

These look good and are comfortable, but after two months I noticed that there are inch-long tears in the rubber on both boots up by the toe box. It's been another month and I have now have a big tear along the line of thicker rubber that runs up the back of the heel. I can see my socks through the boots and have to be careful not to walk in deep puddles because my feet will get wet, which completely defeats the purpose of rain boots. I know these aren't a top-of-the-line brand, but I expected them to at least last a season. Would not buy again.

I bought these back in May and they were wonderful until today when they split on the instep on both boots. Thanks to the fine folks at Zappos, I am getting a new pair from another brand. Do yourself a favor, don't waste your money.

I absolutely love these rain boots! Not only was this my very first time buying something off the Internet, but I bought rain boots that are so hard to find that fit right. You mostly have to try rain boots on before you buy in my opinion. But I live in a very small town and the only boots around here are cowboy boots or fishing boots. I am a girl and want something cute, duh! My calves are a little bigger and I was worried that either I would pay for these boots and never get them or they would not fit. Nope! My boots were here the next day! And they are so comfortable! You can expand them with the buckle or make them tighter. They sell in only whole sizes. I wear an 8½ so I ordered a size 9, and they are perfect! I seriously wear them everyday. They go great with jean shorts, any leggings, and long jeans. They are very reliable and will not wear and tear out! I am so happy with my boots and the service by Zappos! This will not be my last purchase for sure! I Definitely give this five stars. Both the site and the boots!

I needed these boots so I could walk my dogs in the snow, they are great, not a drop of snow/water has gotten my feet wet! I think they will be great when I work in the garden in the spring too!

Pregnant? Thick calves BEFORE pregnancy like me? I love that these fit. I've had these now for about 4 months and beat the heck out of all my shoes, but these still look brand new. Before pregnancy, my calves were 16 1/2 inches. Walking around downtown Chicago in fall through early winter here I am thankful for a boot that's easy to slip on and fits my calves when wearing work pants or maternity jeans. I wear them with thick Hunter brand wellies socks and they still fit comfortably. I am a normal size 9, I might have been a little overzealous on how large my feet and legs would get, and I ordered a 11. a little loose around the ankle, but fit fine walking to my office when my feet and ankles start to swell. I purchased three other (size 11s) at the same time to see which I liked most...these won. Other contenders I thought were thick calved or liked... Hunters, lol. Nope...only if barefoot, even then they are not that comfortable. Bogs...looked cool, thought the hole on sides would allow me to pull them up during pregnancy, they hurt in the arches when I walked in them and would not allow enough room for socks or pants to tuck into easily Kamicks. Still too tight around ankles Pros of Chookas: Fits large calves WITH thick socks and pants tucked inside -Easy to slip on -More support or cushion the other I tried. Moderately warm...no need for my winter boots yet here in December Cons: Ankles scruch a little (not felt, just shows if I dont wear thick socks).

I bought these boots for my daughter for her job as a camp counselor. Not only are they cute, but she said they are a lifesaver! they are 100% waterproof and comfortable. The adjustable strap is great if your calves are not bony, plus they are easy to slip on and off. Also, she was looking for navy blue, so yeah, kind of perfect! She debated to order 8 1/2 but opted size 8. Don't order up a size! The size is perfect even with socks.

They are nice boots but they do run large. If you usually wear size 8, order size 7. I have to wear 2 pairs of socks to keep them flapping around on my feet. And they are a little heavy. Otherwise very happy with purchase.

Ladies, these rain boots will fit around larger calves! I have tried 4 or 5 different rain boots over the past month (thank you, Zappos!) and NONE of them would fit around my 16 inch calves, except for these! I was going to try the Hunter Short next but wasn't sure about spending so much money on a rain boot. I think the quality looks good, although the true test will be out in some rain/slushy weather. As for sizing, I wear a 10 in most shoes (10 1/2 in athletic shoes), and I ordered a 9. The length is perfect for my foot, although it is a little narrow. I seem to have developed wider feet over the years after having 4 kids. However, I think a 10 would be too large. Another plus, no bad odor permeating from the boots. A pair I tried from another store (much cheaper boot, price and quality) smelled so strong I couldn't even stand it. So far I am pleased with this boot. One note, yes, they are a little bunch around the ankle but I find most boots are so it's not a deal breaker for me.

I was so excited to get these boots, but unfortunately, they didn't work for me. I will never be able to wear cute boots. My calves are just too meaty for these "wide shaft" boots. Ironically, I felt like these boots were flappy around the ankles. I am usually an 8.5 and got the 9, they were roomy, and if my calves had fit in them, I would have kept them. I did think the buckles were kind of cheap, but as ornamentation, they are cute. If you are lucky enough to have super skinny calves, then these boots will probably be a good fit for you, and keep you looking cute and your feet dry. For us with muscular legs, it's short boots and wet feet.

I ordered the navy and black in this boot to see which I liked better. I thought I would want the black but I ended up going with navy. I've had them for about a week, but I've worn them about three or four times because it's so slushy outside. I've stepped in huge puddles and so far so good. They do show dirt of course and I haven't tried cleaning them yet because they aren't too bad. They hit just below your knee. I am a soccer player so I was worried about them not fitting my calf, but THEY DO! Don't worry you large calf people! I got these boots for college next year and so far they have pleased me.

Just received these 5 minutes ago and I love them! The color is actually a little richer than the picture shows - it's a nice berry color. I'm normally a 7.5 but ordered a size 8 and they are a little loose, but it's good if you plan on wearing thicker socks with them. The tan straps add a nice touch! They're pretty cute for rain boots!

A Christmas gift for my daughter-in-law. Early 30's & stylish dresser. Liked these boots because of the top strap, which not only looks nice, but can be adjusted for width of calf. Color was exactly as described & best of all she loved them. I definitely recommend

Love these! I usually wear size 9.5, but in reality my right foot is 9.5 and my left is 10. Based on the reviews that said these boots ran big, I ordered down to size 9. They do fit, but the toes on my left foot are a little squished. I probably should have gotten a 10, but I can still wear them for a 3 mile round-trip walk to work without too much trouble. My calf circumference is 14.75" and I was able to wear them over skinny jeans and still have a comfortable gap. The buckles didn't do much. There's zero arch support and cushioning, but it's a rain boot. That's to be expected. The Merlot is a very pretty color. Bright enough to make me feel like a kid splashing around in puddles, while still being grown-up and feminine. In summary: put some cushioned insoles in these boots and they're pretty much perfect.
