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.

Lighter than the Original Tall and a bit shorter, so if your calves are a bit shorter and thinner than average, this is a boot for you. I tried the Original Tall and it almost fit but the top of the shaft kept hitting the back of my thigh when I bended my knee (walking upstairs or sitting).

Bought these for my 17 year old daughter - she loves them! They are a great fit and comfortable for her to wear all day at school. They aren't too narrow or wide in the shaft. She is able to wear welly socks with them even.

The boots are great. My daughter got them for Christmas and they have proven to be a good addition to my wardrobe and my daughter's. Zappos is a fantastic website! When my daughter got green Hunter boots for Christmas, she decided she wanted to change the color and Zappos took care of everything so quickly; we had her new boots the next day! I will definitely be shopping through Zappos again.

For years I have heard people raving about Hunter boots. I was excited about purchasing a pair and telling all my friends to order a pair. Only worn a handful of times, the side buckles on both boots fell off, huge rips on the sides of both boots making my feet soaking wet, and then I discovered little tiny microscopic tears at the top of the boots. After putting all my faith in my purchase, I am now highly disappointed with Hunter boots and will never purchase again this brand and hope others reconsider as well.

This is my first review of any product. I feel I need to write this one, mainly because of the awesome Zappos customer service. The service is simply above and beyond excellence. I now start my browsing at Zappos first and my daughter loved the boots and they were perfect fit. Well worth the price.

These boots are definitely worth the money in terms of design and style. I usually wear a size 8-8.5 in shoes and the size 8 Hunters fit me well. I have narrow feet so I was worried about the width, but they fit my feet really well with my thick Smartwool hiking socks. The boots appear to taper at the top and come in at the ankles, which makes them very flattering. I have skinny calves so usually rainboots gap like crazy around my legs, but the Hunters look really polished and well-fitted. These boots are also really light in comparison to other boots I've had. I got the black color and I think it looks very classic. I like the matte finish and understated design.

Brands I'd also recommend: Frye, Ugg, Smartwool

After researching the Originals vs. the Tour, I ultimately decided these would be a better fit for my 5'1 frame, as these are lighter weight and have a slimmer calf. I'm normally a 5.5 in most shoes, and sized up to a 6 and it fits well with socks. I've never had an issue with my calves and boots before but these fit pretty snug, it can be difficult to pull them off! But overall I'm happy, they are comfortable to wear for moderate walking, not too heavy or bulky and super cute!

I have been lusting after these boots for years now and finally decided to use some Christmas money to buy them. I originally thought I was a size 6 (what I usually am) but upon receiving them, I decided they were too tight if I wanted to wear them with fleece socks (which I do in this Illinois weather!). I called Zappos to make a return and the NEXT DAY I received a new pair in a size 7. I didn't have to pay for shipping either way and I had the boots the very next day. I am so incredibly impressed with Zappos and will definitely be coming back. The Boots are a must! They are much lighter than the original ones and they can be folded and packed! It even comes with a bag to put them in!

These boots are great, they are not the shiny ones, so know that before you order. They are very comfortable- I recommend the Hunter socks with them too to keep your feet warmer!

I did a lot of researching with the reviews to snag the right pair of Hunters. Several reviews (Zappos and other sites) said the Original Tour is best for petite women. At 5 feet with muscular calves, I was concerned with the overall look and feel. But I did not go wrong with my pick. The boots fit me well. They dont rub on the back of my knees. My calves are comfortable. The one minus is the buckles that will rub or scratch on anything - car seat, couch, walls, etc. But I still love my Original Tours. Read reviews first then get yourself a pair. They are beautiful.

I ordered the Huntress originally because I was worried about my calves fitting in a pair of Hunter boots (about 14-in around). The Huntress was way too big for me in the heels, so I sent them back. I got these Tour ones, and I love them! I love the way they look and how they fit. My calves fit in them with some knee high thick socks and skinny jeans; it's snug but I can still fit a finger between my calves and the boot. I like how these are lightweight and easy to walk in. I also travel for work, so it'll be interesting to see how these fare from being packed and carted around the country. My one concern is how long they will last. I am hoping I can get a few good years of use out of these, but I am skeptical.

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.

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.
