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 boots, but they are very narrow in the calf area for me. I'm 5'7", 158lbs, and have an athletic build. I usually wear a size 8.5, so I ordered a size 9, thinking that sizing-up would accommodate my muscular calves. Not so much. Going to return these and order the adjustable boot and the short to see which I like better.

Love these!!! I originally bought the short boots and decided to exchange for these because the short was wide on my calf and I wanted something to give more protection. These are perfect, just what I was looking for. They're comfortable and cute (as cute as a rain boot can be). Very happy with this purchase. I'm a size 7.5-8 and ordered the 7 based on the recommendations and they fit great!

I order three different styles to compare; Tour, Original Tall and the Original Refined. The Tours were, for me, the most comfortable. I didn't notice much difference in the fit between the Original and Tour but the Tour is definitely lighter and I appreciate their packability. They're also slightly shorter, which I liked. The refined were just too slim all-over, but especially around the ankle area. These are very comfortable, even for extended hours and long walks. I got the Sherling insert and they make the bottom so soft and cozy. I ordered my normal size, 8, and I found that to be perfect. A lot of other reviews said to size down, but I like room for my toes and with the inserts and thick comfy socks, my normal size was good. My only complaint would be the decorative buckle. It looks nice, but I haven't figured out how to make it lay flat. It has a little bulge, and catches on things when I bump against stuff. But that's minor, over-all, I think these are amazing and so worth the price!

I ordered these and the hunter original tall to compare. They look the EXACT same. These were way better for me. The material is flexible and these were easy to get on and much more comfortable than the originals. I like that they are easy to travel with as well. I'll be returning the originals and keeping these.

Hunter rain boots have been on my wish list for a while. Being 5', I wasn't sure which one would be the best fit. The kids boots in a size 4 fit okay but seemed to fit shorter than usual, the Tall had a shaft that was a bit too high, but the Tour was just right. They are also much lighter than the kids or the tall. Usually a 4.5, but the 5 fit great. My calves are a bit larger than average, but the boots fit great over skinny jeans. Couldn't be happier! Definitely recommend.

I just ordered my second pair of Hunter Tour rainboots. The problem I've always had with rainboots is that they cut into the back of my ankle in a really painful way so finding a good pair for commuting was a struggle. The Tour is a lifesaver - because of their flexibility (for packing) they don't have any stiff areas that cut into my ankle and cause blisters. They are PERFECTLY comfortable. And also lightweight! I also find that they are true to size on the foot, although I do see how they could be slightly small on the calves if you are muscular at all. I have average calves and don't have a problem tucking in leggings but jeans are slightly snug. I also don't mind that they aren't lined. It enables me to wear them year round and accommodate the season with my choice of socks. I've never purchased the Hunter liners and I am fine wearing them in cold weather with thick socks. I'm on my second pair of these boots because I have large knuckles by my big toes and so when I walk my shoes tend to rub together at that point, which wore a hole in the rubber on both boots after two years. I don't think this would generally be a problem for most people, but thought it was worth mentioning. I will continue to replace my Hunters despite this bc they are so comfortable.

I love these rain boots. They fit well and look nice with many things. They aren't very warm but they definitely are waterproof. Last a long time. The only thing is they get a bit uncomfortable after walking around in them for long periods of time. Order half size down for half sizes.
