I got these in the grey matte. The calf is very narrow, so I had to get a 9.

Well-constructed boot, makes walking through puddles fun. Being in between sizes, opted for the larger and wear the boots with thick socks - they're easy on/off. Hunter boot spray takes care of any bloom which appears on the gloss.

I have a gray pair of these that look just about brand new after 6 years. I just bought a new pair in red. To follow up on people saying they feel a size larger that marked, yes they do. However, they're meant to be that sizing so that the boot socks fit in them. Once you have the socks in them, they're 100% true to size. It just depends on how you plan on wearing them. If you don't want the socks, then I recommend ordering a size down. I am usually always a 7, and my original pair was 7's. They are big, but not huge. It never bothered me that I had extra room when the boot socks weren't in, but when the socks are in, they fit perfectly.

I have been hemming and hawing over these boots forever. I had also tried on an older pair of the same style that my friend had and loved! So when I saw them on sale I sprang for them. My normal size varies from 8-9. Based on the reviews I decided to go with a 7 and an 8. When they arrived, the first thing I noticed was that the first pair appeared damaged. So I opened the second pair and noticed the same thing. Couldn't tell if it was scuffing from previous customers or something to do with the gloss, but I'm assuming this is not typical. Given the defect is on both, I see no sense in exchanging for another pair. In terms of fit, both fit fairly well but I probably would have gone with the 8 to allow for thicker socks. I have skinny calves and usually find the boot shaft to be big but these were perfect. Comfort was just ok...I was expecting more for the price. An interesting difference I noticed was that the 8 was about an inch taller than the 7...could be a manufacturing factor. I really wanted to love these but just couldn't justify spending $100 on something of this quality. I wonder if, like many other products, the quality of this item has gone down over the years as it's gained popularity or if the vendor for zappos differs from other companies that carry this same product. If the Matte go on sale, maybe I'll reconsider trying again but for now I'd rather put that money towards a pair of Ugg slippers. On a positive note, I have always loved zappos and their customer service. Thank goodness for free returns!!!!

Great stylish boots. Great for all seasons. They are very warm when boot socks are added. Easy to clean also. I say true to size. I wear 7 1/2 and sized down to a 7 just like Ugg's.

Love my new Hunter boots! Get a ton of compliments on them. I am normally a 6 and the 6 fits great. I also got the cable boot socks, and these fit comfortably over a normal pair of everyday socks. Would definitely recommend!

Best boots ever! I can comfortably wear these all day. I usually wear size 7.5 - and I ordered these in 7, and still have room for Hunter boot socks. The red is awesome - I get lots of compliments of the cheerful color.

These are a beautiful boot and the shaft worked for my legs, hitting right below the knee (I am just over 5'0"). They run large in the foot -- my usual size is 7.5 and the 6.0 fit my foot. I returned them,however, because they were a little too heavy and clunky for me to walk comfortably in. They are, however, GORGEOUS and so well-made!

Just what I wanted for the wet weather we have been experiencing in the Midwest lately. Makes wearing rain boots fashionable. Wear warm socks or get a liner if you intend to wear in the cold as it offers no warmth. Quite the reverse happens since it is rubber. Although it can also be fashionable in the winter, be careful when walking through icy patches as it offers no traction.

Can't say enough +++++++ about Zappos customer service!!!! After buying the refined boots in size 5 for a very narrow foot and giving them as a Christmas gift they were just too small. No longer had packaging and boots were in another state! The team at Zappos sent the Originsl version as a replacement and allowed the gift recipient to return the refined version in that packaging! Be careful of the refined Hunter they are very very narrow! But orinigsk versions are super comfy warm and worn all day!! Thank you Zappps!! Life long customer!!

I love these hunter boots! They are a little narrow in the calves, but they still fit - I do have wide calves. The only thing that bugged me was when I ordered them from Zappos, they showed up all dirty and almost like they had a film all over them. My friend ordered her directly from the Hunter website and when hers showed up, they were beautiful, clean and glossy - like they should be! I rubbed mine with olive oil and they cleaned up perfectly. Just annoyed that I spent $150 on boots that didn't show up in pristine condition.

I've been wanting hunter boots forever and finally got them as a Christmas gift! I'm so excited to wear them all spring long. The color is very nice (I got gray), the fit seems comfortable, and the height is good.

Ordered these for my daughter for Christmas. The first pair that arrived was all scratched up and appeared to have been a returned pair. Called costumer service and they were excellent! They sent a replacement pair out the next day! The second pair that arrived was much better (it even had the Hunter tissue paper), but it to had a few scratches that we did not notice until Christmas Day when my daughter opened them up. The imperfections where not bad enough to send them back again we just treated it with olive oil. Not sure if the Shiny Black Hunter boots are prone to getting scratched easily. Overall they fit great. My daughter wears a 9, but I ordered a 10 so she could wear bigger boot socks with them. She said they are much more comfortable than regular rain boots except they come up a little taller on her leg (almost to the knee). Definitely not worth buying another pair. There are several other brands that we like better. This was a one time only purchase with Hunter Boots.

I ordered the beautiful Military Red Hunter Original Gloss and received the Original Tall. The issue would be found in both so I am sending them back. They hit me right at the back of my knee and the rubber feels like it would definitely chafe after walking a few blocks. I am 5'2" with 15" calves and I ordered a size 8. I generally take a size 7.5. They are gorgeous so it's a shame!

These are such wonderful rain boots that will last you for years! I bought them in black since I felt like that was the most versatile and would go with my outfits and not stand out. They are comfortable and actually pretty stylish.

bought these in red - this is my 5th pair of hunter rain boots, 3rd pair of "glossy". I've decided I like the glossy version better than the matte. The red is very festive and is a nice pop of color with lots of outfits. I'm typically a size 8 in shoes and I wear a size 8 in hunter boots. If you are a 1/2 size, I recommend sizing down.

LOVE these boots, and I knew I would. I have had army green rain boots from Chinese Laundry for years, so I was used to the limited movement of a rain boot. They are really tall. (Some reviews said they were too tall and chaffed the back of women's legs when they walked, they don't on me. I am 5'4 but have longer legs.) The only issue is that it's tough to sit crossed legged because of where the buckle hits. But that's ok, I will forgo! I am a pretty solid 7 1/2 and I ordered a 7 and they fit perfectly, not too big. I also ordered them for my daughter in an 8 and she wears an 8 1/2, hers also fit perfectly.
