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.

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 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.

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 bought my boots in Nov of 2014 and being in California during the drought I may have worn them 10 times at the most. This last week we had a big storm and realized that my sock was wet after wearing the boots. After further inspection, I noticed they had cracked by the heal on the side of the boot. I would expect more durability out of a money and tax rain boot.

I bought these boots in March of 2015 and by January 2016 they were ripped and leaking (with normal use). Mind you- I didn't wear them over the summer. I had to return these and Zappos was awesome about making an exchange for the Hunter Original. WOULD NOT advise getting these boots unless you're only planning to wear them for light wear in rainy weather.

Love these hunter boots! it runs true to size (I usually wear a ten but got a nine first and had to order the ten). I have a skinny calf and this fit perfectly. I like the heel of the boot better than the tall hunter boot. I wear them with and with the sock and love them. I'm glad I finally have a rain/snow boot to wear during our monsoon in Phoenix and trips to north for snow.

I purchased the Tour in a size 8 after trying the Hunter Original in size 9 (I generally wear an 8.5/9 but unfortunately Hunter does not come in half sizes.) The 9 was too large overall in the foot and calf area -- I have small calves, around13.5". I decided to go with the Tour in an 8 and it was a good choice for my 5'5" frame. I love the Navy Blue and receive a lot of compliments. Also the Tour are lighter in weight than the Original & come with a cute drawstring Hunter bag for travel.

The best online order I have ever done! I ordered them on December 22 (late evening). Zappos promised to deliver by Christmas. I didn't expected them until the 24th or 25th, but I got them on the 23 around 4PM! Awesome service, super happy with my new boots. It was my first order on Zappos! THIS GIRL IS A HAPPY GIRL! Thank you Zappos! And again the boots are awesome. :)

I am in love with these boots! I appreciated the comments on these, because there are a few reality checks when considering these boots. The opening around the calf is quite small. That happens to work for me, since I am 5'10" I can wear these with legging jeans, but bunching up regular pants and stuffing them in looks a little awkward. They are quite wide around the foot and ankle area. I am normally a size 11, and I tried both the 10 and the 11. The 10 was just too small, but I could see how ordering a size down could help for some people. Lastly, they do not have any insulation to speak of. I have been wearing mine in snow, but I would definitely recommend some thick, wool socks! In spite of it all, these boots are highly functional and look amazing!

I bought a pair of these 5 yrs ago & while very comfortable, and hardly worn re the climate I live in, after 4 yrs they started disintegrating & cracking. I was told by the Hunter USA Boot Company that the tour boots as they are pliable are not durable. So I wld not recommend this model.

As advertised, no surprises. My high school Freshman daughter loves the boots. Regularly receives compliments on them. I would say the motivation to pay the purchase price was a third for the boot and rest for the social/fashion aspect.

I usually buy from Macy's or Nordstrom even though I'm a member of Zappos. I ordered the hunter original black tour in matte.Customer service suggested to start on the smaller size. I'm size 6 so I got the size 5. I love this boots specially the weight( it's light ) and the height.The feet fits me good and still have room for socks but unfortunately the calf is narrow.. My calf is 14 inches and I can't wear the hunter boots socks or tuck my jeans in it!! I can wear thin socks or cotton leggings but anything thicker will not fit! So I ordered the hunter adjustable back size 5 to see the difference. The adjustable hunter is taller in height and heavier compare to the hunter original tour. The feet still has lot of room like the tour and since the calf part is adjustable,I can tuck in my jean leggings and wear thick socks. So I chose the hunter original back adjustable. I feel more comfortable using that! Hopefully it will last long for me coz I heard a lot negative reviews about the hunter rain boots that it will leak and that it will look dull in a year or so.. I like shopping at Zappos because of their customer service!! They are so helpful and friendly and accommodating but the only thing I hate was printing for the return label!! I hate returning stuff and it's a pain when u don't use a printer at the house! I love the other stores like Nordstrom for example because the prepaid label is already in the box... I will go back to the others stores with prepaid label since it's more convenient for me.. I will still shop at Zappos when I'm sure that I don't have to return anything! Excellent service!! Helpful agents! Great products!! Thank you Zappos for your help!!

I originally ordered he huntress but the were too tall, these are almost an inch shorter and worked perfect! I also bought the socks inserts and couldn't believe how warm my feet stayed. I wear an 8 and ordered an 8, without socks they are a bit wide but in you use the sock it's perfect. I know a lot of the reviews said to order down a size, I'm glad I stuck with the size I normally order. Also the exchange with Zappos was the easiest friendliest experience I've ever had. So overall if you are 5' 4" and under I'd go with the tour! Excellent purchase!

I love these boots. They are soft, lightweight, comfortable, flexible and stylish-yet-understated. I got the black and love the matte (is that what you call it?) finish. I couldn't ask for more from a rain boot.

Great rainboot for petite girls. This version of the Hunter boot is perfect for petite girls because it doesn't hit too high in the back of the leg by the knee and isn't too wide in the calf. Perfect! And size is true. I'm a 5 and got the 5. For reference, I''m 5'1.

I'd been wanting Hunter boots for a while but never knew if they were worth the money. Now that I have them I realize they are. I am not a big spender on shoes but these are worth every penny. I normally wear a size 8.5 and got a size 8 - they fit perfectly! They are so light and keep my feet dry when walking in the rain in NYC. I am hooked!

Love these boots! I'm short (5ft 0 inches) and they come just below my knee. I love how they are narrower at the calf so rain doesn't get in. They are so comfortable. Everyone that saw them already wants a pair and I can't wait to order them in red.

Everyone keeps talking about how good these work for narrow calves. Jean of Extra Petite did a blog review on them and they looked perfect on her 12.5" calves in size 5. I ordered a size 7 however, and my 13" calves are swimming in them. I measured and the inner circumference is around 15" and outer around 15.5". I think the calf width must increase dramatically with the size. Yet I see other reviewers with bigger sizes still saying they fit narrow calves. Maybe the color (NAVY 2) runs differently? Either way, I normally wear a 6.5-7W and the 7s were huge. Bonus: they weren't too narrow for my wide feet, or too tall for my 5'2 stature. So I am going to try again with a 6 and see if that solves both problems.
