I ordered the tour instead of the original boots due to the reviews stating these were better for petite women. I have skinny calves and I'm also short so sometimes it can be tricky for me to find boots that fit right. I ordered my normal shoe size (7) and when I tried these on, they were gigantic. I'm a true 7 so these definitely run a whole size big. I sent them back and got the size 6 instead. They fit much, much better! They are comfortable, very stylish (esp with boot socks!), and aren't too heavy or bulky when you walk. These are exactly what I was looking for and I'm really happy I went with this style instead of the original. I would definitely recommend!

I ordered both the Originals and the Tour to compare them. I love the green color and the style and really wanted to keep one of the pairs, but in the end I couldn't justify the price. Hunter only has a 12-month warranty and many of the reviews on Amazon complain about seams splitting, leakage, and unhelpful responses from the company that recommend "never using the boots in any type of flooding, whether it be 2" or 5" of water." What?? The Tours were much more comfortable, but made much more cheaply, so it's very surprising that they cost the same as the Originals. The Tours are made in China, and the Originals are made in Indonesia -- which isn't necessarily bad in and of itself, but when I looked closely at the boots themselves, neither pair oozed a quality that seemed to justify their price, and the Hunter website didn't contain any reassurances beyond a 12-month warranty. Really sad to send these back, because they are very cute. I might try and find a vintage pair that was made before the quality of construction decreased.

Cute boots, I got them in red. I got a size 9 (my size is between 8.5-9) and they are still so large that I use orthotics to improve arch support. So for me this larger size works well. These are not boots that I expect to give a lot of support, but to keep my feet dry. That definitely works! And Zappos showed its great customer service, as usual. Shopping here is fun!

Love the Tour boot. Fits true to size, and is a good option for me over the regular Hunter boots because the height isn't as high up my leg. Fits me perfect.

This packable boot would be great except that it is too tight around the top so they are coming back. As always, Zappos service is awesome so I'll keep looking there for a packable boot that has good support, is supple and durable, and has a comfortable, non-binding, shaft.

I ordered a sz 7 and an 8. I usually wear a 7.5 but these don't come in half sizes. The 7 was a great fit but I intend to wear heavy socks with them over the winter months. The 8 gives me that extra room.

These are the perfect rain boots! I am a size 7 and they fit True to Size. They are very comfortable and well made, along with being fashionable. I bought the Navy color after I saw pictures of Kate Moss wearing them at a music festival with cutoff shorts. So cute.

Loved these boots. I'm a 8 or 8.5, depending on the brand, and after reading reviews, went with a size 8 (which I wear in Ugg & Frye). Sadly, it just was a tad too small. My toes hit the edge. I would really call them true to size. I may have kept them except the shaft of the boot was a bit snug around my calves too. I could wear them with jeans, but a boot sock would not have fit. I'm 5'3" and the Tour was the perfect height. Going to try the 9.

Love these! I'm an 8.5 and I got a size 9. They fit perfectly. These are my second pair of Hunters and they are durable, stylish while the Tour is great for traveling. I'm moving to England so these were a must! Highly recommend!

These are the best boots ever! They are very comfortable made from soft rubber. No breaking in was required. I wore these all over Ireland and they were so easy to care for and they look great. They are great quality and seem like they will last a long time. They are worth the money. I bought generics first and they rubbed many blisters in no time. I should have bought the real ones the first time around.

Oh, I do love my Hunter Original Tour wellies! I first ordered the Green 1 color, and though they were nice, I decided to exchange them for this delicious Peacock color! SO happy with them... and, as always, Zappos return service is the best! As far as the fit... very interesting. The Green ones definitely ran a whole size big, which I did allow for when ordering. The Peacock ones - really more true-to-size. I suppose I could have exchanged them for my normal size 8 instead of the 7s that I ordered, but decided that the 7s are fine for our hot Savannah weather - no thick socks needed here! You may want to consider that in your ordering. Snug at the top - both pair - but that is the way this style is made, to keep the rain out! I am 5'3", and the tops hit just right. Overall - comfy, flexible for travel, CUTE, and very well made!

If you travel, this is the boot to have. I recently was in the UK for work and didn't want to pack too much. These boots fold down and fit nicely into luggage. It's best to use them with a pair of welly socks.

I am a true 6.5 (measured professionally) so I ordered a 6 in navy as I'd read elsewhere to size down if you are a half size. The 6's will probably work although my toe is at the very end. I do wish I had a 7 to compare as I would like to see how much bigger it is and if it would be too big or just big enough that I could wear wellie socks. The width is perfect and though I haven't walked but around the living room, they feel really cushy and comfy! I have 13-14" calves and the shaft is perfect for my taste. I think I could wear skinny jeans tucked in if I wanted. I can't wait for the next rainy day so I can wear them!

Love them! To me, they look more red and less orange in person than in the picture. I love the closer fit to my calf than the regular Hunter boots, which I ordered as well and sent back. I wear a 8 1/2 in most shoes, and the 8 fit perfectly.

These boots were exactly what I was looking for. The weight of the boot is not as heavy as other rain boots I have tried. The material is softer and the top does not have a big bell opening. I have small calves so I don't know if they would work for everyone. I ordered the boot in my reg size and they fit the way I desire. I now smile when the weather forecasts rain.;-)

Love the boots and color. They are super comfortable and worth the investment. Mine are a little snug in the calf so if you have bigger calves, you may want to order ones with an adjustable buckle or look for a wide calf option.

I bought the original boots 2 years ago and then had to return because it was way too heavy. It is my second pair of Tour boots. and I really love them. Very light, and fit right since I have slim calves. I ordered size 8 instead of size 7 (my size is 7.5) because of the length I was aware of. I am 5'7" and the length was just perfect.

I spend a lot of time in rain boots and this is a great boot. I bought it specifically for travel and it travels well. It folds compactly and then bounces back to its original shape. It is comfortable and the Hunter liners fit in nicely, making it an all season boot. Plus I love the color.

I had the original hunter and I'm so glad I decided to give the tour a try! I've always liked having extra room in my hunter rainboots so that they would fit if I decide to wear thick socks in winter. The calf is much narrower than the original, which works great for me. I haven't tried fitting into them with welly socks yet. Since the shaft is also lower, my only concern is that the welly socks won't go well with the tour style. Other than that, love the lightweight and much softer rubber!

Definitely the style for you if your calves measure 13 in. & below. While go for the adjustable back straps if you have bigger legs. I'm petite, 5 ft., and the height of the Hunter Original Tour is just right. It doesn't cut at the back of my knees. The fact that its rubber is made softer that it's packable & foldable, these boots are lightweight & feel comfortable. It hugs perfectly around the legs with or without the welly socks. Looks nice and fashionable. I love the idea that you can work these boots for snow & rain. In fact, I'm sold out that I'm buying the short one for my hubby. Hope it works for him.

I finally found a rain boot that looks good on my 13 inch calves. All of the other boots made me look like I was standing in buckets. I usually wear a 7.5, but after reading reviews I ordered a 7 and they fit perfectly. Best rain boot ever for thin calves.

Love! I wear these all the time. After looking for over two years for plain black boots (I don't know how I hadn't found these before now), I finally came across them and won't take them off! I work in a really conservative environment and have to walk to different buildings throughout the day. On really busy days when its raining and changing into more professional shoes (heels especially) just isn't practical, these boots do the trick. They're significantly lighter and more comfortable than other Hunter boots as well. Will probably purchase in a more fun color as well for more casual looks. Absolutely recommend!

I absolutely love these boots. I have been looking for classic, plain, black rain boots for over two years. I have ordered about 40 online (literally) and tried many more in store. I am not quite sure how I did not see these until now but I have gotten so much use out of them. I cannot really wear them with pants (other than leggings). I typically wear them with tights and a dress/skirt since they are very narrow. They are so comfortable though that I was able to wear them for about 13 hours one day when I wound up traveling from NY - DC after a full work day and they were great. The buckles make it hard to sit with your legs crossed sometimes but other than that, they are perfect.

Love these boots so much. They kept my feet dry all weekend during a cold rainy camp trip. Fit true to size. I am 5'4" and the size 7 hits low enough below the knee where it isn't uncomfortable.
