Wellies, originally favored by the hunting and sporting set, stand as a pillar of British design. And no brand is more aligned with the welly than Hunter. The Hunter Original boot was introduced in 1956 and has since become an icon. The Original is still made today using many of the same heritage techniques as employed in the ‘50s.
The Hunter Original Tall and Original Short rain boot are offered in a matte and gloss finish in a cornucopia of colors. It is the ideal boot to wear when it’s sprinkling, raining, or pouring and you’re tromping through wet streets, slick grass, or straight mud. It keeps your pants and feet clean and dry. They also look great too!
Spring showers bring summer rainstorms which then become cold fall rain and winter sleet. Hunter wellies can be worn in every season; however, don’t forget to layer warm socks underneath your boots when the temperature dips. Luckily, Hunter makes boot socks in quite a few designs to wear with your boots for a unified look and cozy feel. Welly socks are also available for kids as well, so the whole family can wear and enjoy.
Hunter boots are purchasable for men, women, girls, and boys in a range of pull-on and lace-up styles. They exude a classic style and will hold an important place in your wardrobe for years to come. These will be the boots that you hand down proudly once your child outgrows them.
Hunter holds two Royal Warrants by Appointment to HM The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh as suppliers of waterproof footwear. This appointment is awarded to those who have provided products to the royal household for at least five years. Hunter received the first in 1977 from the Duke of Edinburgh and the second from HM The Queen in 1986.
Order half size bigger overall love them
Like the boot a lot - but something odd is going on with the side buckles. They don't seem to want to lay flat. What's up with that? They're basically decorative but they're "real" as far as needing to be buckled properly. Otherwise a fun color (blue) and comfy. Can't wait to splash around in them.
If you have a hard time finding boots to fit over your calves,these are the boots for you! I have the Hunter original tall boots and although they fit with just stockings, they are way too tight for pants. The adjustable back on these is perfect. My calves are about 16.25" (bare legs) and I have no trouble tucking jeggings into these boots.
I haven't tested these boots out in rain / wet weather but I can tell you they fit great and are very comfortable. I bought these in a size 10 and they fit perfectly. For reference, I wear size 10.5 Nike sneakers. If you intend on wearing these with heavy / thick socks I recommend getting a size 11. It can be tough to get your feet into it due to the tough rubber material and construction. But once you get your foot in, it fits fine. The size 11 makes it easier to slip your foot in but definitely has soon room to it. I initially followed the advice of another commenter who said her husband wore sz 10.5 sneakers but needed the boots in a sz 12. Not sure what her husbands issue was but putting on a size 12 was like wearing clown shoes.
I am in love with these boots! They are the perfect red, comfortable and so cute! I highly recommend the cable knit Hunter boot socks to go with.
had to return , mine were defective !!!!
I have a 17 inch calf which I guess puts me in the category of "large calves." This boot did not fit. I even sized up a full size, nope. If you have large calves don't waste your time. If you have average calves, size up. If you have skinny legs this boot is for you. But it isn't for me. Back it goes.
These boots are HEAVY. The wedge heel makes walking very clumsy. Too bad, they're cute!
A great boot that works for all kinds of inclement weather. Would definitely buy this in different colors.
I absolutely love this refined version of Hunter boot! I've had and loved the original but decided to try these for the closer fit and I'm very happy with them. I have large calves and they do fit snugly but I like it to keep the heavy rains of NYC from going straight down the boot shaft! The rubber feels softer and more pliable than the original too. Runs more true to size in the foot bed too whereas the original runs large. Fits very much like a riding boot and is shaped like one too. One thing though I also ordered the boot liners socks for warmth but the fit of the boot is too slim to comfortably wear them. I'll pass them on to my daughter who has the original boot.
