Size down or stay with your regular size? Gloss or matte? The quintessential Hunter boot questions. I am typically a size 9 and ordered a size 8 and 9. I was buying these rain boots not only to wear when it rains, but to wear with heavy socks in the winter - our winters are a slushy mess but don't bring heavy accumulations of snow. Given this is the case, I assumed the 9 would be the pair I would wind up keeping because it would probably better accommodate heavy socks. As it turns out, I swam in the 9s. Even two pairs of thick socks didn't help. The size 8 was perfect - they fit perfectly as rain boots with a thin sock and can still accommodate a winter-weight sock. I also found that I preferred the gloss boot. For those like me who might worry about this, they are not too glossy. I have friends who claim the gloss boot "blooms" less too - but only time will tell. I bought a pair of these boots in black and graphite and wound up keeping the graphite. The color is a fantastic medium gray - a great neutral and a little more fun than an everyday color like black. I've gotten tons of compliments on them and wonder why I waited so long to get these boots. It rains where I live quite a bit and gets muddy and mucky out. In these, my feet stay dry and toasty. They are also a pleasure to walk in and are not heavy like some snow boots. Hopefully, I'll feel that my winter socks or a new pair of welly socks will keep my feet toasty when I wear these during the winter. Highly recommend!

Huge! I was wearing my thickest wool socks and even then, these boots were so big it was laughable. Order a size down - maybe 2!

I LOVE THESE BOOTS! I was hesitant to spend so much on just one pair of shoes, but after researching the brand and reading over reviews, I felt confident in my purchase. I have had these boots for over a year now and am in love! They are incredibly comfy and versatile, especially living in the wet, rainy, slushy, or snowy conditions of the Midwest. I wear these boots from October to April and they still look amazing even a year later! I would recommend buying thick socks or the boot socks that Hunter offers, especially in the really chilly winter! And buy a unique color - I have gotten so many compliments on my bright RED Hunters!!!

These are great boots. You do have to be very careful with them - especially if you try to wear them in the snow/cold weather. They will crack and don't last a long long time, so keep that in mind. They are slightly pricey for the length of wear you get out of them.

Okay,these reviews are crazy. I always rely on them for sizing, but everyone is all over the place. I am ALWAYS a 7.5. In everything. Since no half sizes I ordered a 6 and a 7.7 too big. 6 too small.A 6.5 would have been perfect. So in the end it is a whole size smaller for me, a true 7.5. I am very disappointed. I love the length, the detail (buckle), the heel. Very classy rain boot. Sad it didn't work.

Brands I'd also recommend: Ugg

Jason A

from Door County WI

Even though these were returned in military red gloss, the size was the issue to work around, since I'm male and these were ladies boots. After I took care of the correct size, and ended up getting these boots for a slightly lower price on the official Hunter website, these Are my favorite color boots! They are so vibrant and scream "I'm bold and make a statement". So many people in my hometown do not wear colorful boots. So when I go out in public and wear these bad boys, I always get statements, "there's that guy again, rocking' his boots". I'd strongly recommend getting a very trendy and attractive pair of boots. But for the guys especially, do some foot sizing homework before you buy. Talk to customer service if you have to; they are there for you.

Brands I'd also recommend: Hunter all the way!!! :)

I wanted to love these so badly because they are adorable, but they just didn't feel right. Too stiff and I could barely fit the boot over my calves. I found them difficult to walk in also. Had to return.

I loved these boots in red. They are beautiful. But alas... it was not meant to be. I don't have overly large calves, but these boots did not fit my legs at all. They were super tight at top and loose below calf. It looked terrible. I am 5' 9" and a size 10 so pretty average build. Will have to go with the boring old black in the adjustable. Boo. Sure wish Hunter would make other colors in that version.

I haven’t worn this item since two months after I received the boots. I bizarre white/powdery film covers the entirety of the exterior of the boots. I have tried wiping down with a number of suggested substances and nothing seems to help. Very frustrated. Feel duped.

We usually have a great experience with Hunters but this time the "glossy" boot arrived with a cloudy white residue all over the boots. We tried to rub it off but unfortunately the substance seemed to be etched in the finish. Had to return the pair.

I have always wanted Hunter Boots, and they're great for the winter! The shaft of these boots is rather small (especially if you have wide calves like me), but if you order a half size up it should be a bit wider.

I'm surprised by how comfortable these boots are! I have wanted Hunter boots for a long time but had a hard time justifying the price to pay over $100 for rainboots. So instead I continued to buy inexpensive boots with the rubber that would only last about a year or two and would ultimately hurt my feet so I'd dread wearing them. I've only had these for about a month but the fit is so much nicer than anything else I tried on. I also simultaneously purchased the Ugg rainboots as I assumed the sheepskin lining would be more comfortable than these, but the arch support and sole in the Hunter boots fit so much better. Oh and they are super cute and stylish. For once I am wishing for rain!

Love these boots! Many complements and fit great. You most likely will have to size down but they are perfect for rain and snow with a thick sock. Absolutely adore the style!

I failed to notice how big my calves were when I ordered these boots. I have a pair of Kamik "Jenny" and they fit just fine. These boots on the other hand are not for my type. I am 5'5 120lbs... I returned the boots and reordered the adjustable back. Hopefully they fit.

Love love love these boots! I have had them for 2 rainy Oregon winters now and they are holding up great! I have the red ones, they add a fun pop of color to all of my outfits! I like that they are slimmer to the calf than other rain boots and overall they just seem less bulky and clunky. I usually wear a size 7 and I have a size 6 in these boots, though I do like to wear them a bit more snug and don't layer socks very often. Worth the splurge!

When I received these boots, a lot of the glossy shine was missing & there were big blotchy spots of dull white spots (this was right out of the box--I never got a chance to wear them).

I am so in love with these boots! They are so well made, stylish and comfortable! Taking them off is a bit tricky but worth the hassle. They are exactly what you'd think. Perfectly shiny. One warning though ... If you're short you may not want to get the tall boots. I'm 5"5' and when I sit down they do hit the back of my thighs. It's not enough to bother me but if I were shorter it would probably be uncomfortable. On top of all that I ordered these on Thursday afternoon and they arrived Friday morning. I love zappis!
