Very comfortable sole and lighter in weight compared to other rain boots I've tried. Though I've only owned these boots for about a month, I suspect the quality will endure for years to come. Will be ordering the liner socks.

I have had an older model of these boots for over 10 years. I live and work on a farm, and when I went to buy a new pair I found out the fashionistas had "discovered" my boots. So ladies...these boots will last you through spring birthing season, mud and manure, with heavy socks the early fall snow, and still look great. I wash off the goop with a hose. I bet very few use these what they are made for, but I do love the new colors. I got the purply color, cool farm babe that I am.

Totally adorable boots. I ordered two sizes - a 6F and a 7F. The six is snug but it definitely works, and the 7 was just way too big, it wasn't manageable. I wish these boots ran in half sizes, and then a 6.5 would be good for me. But it's such cute boot and great protection from rain and mud.

These boots are really cute, but be sure to measure your calves before purchasing. I've never had a problem buying boots, but these were way too tight. I could get them on, but I don't think they would be comfortable for any length of time.

I've been coveting these boots for quite a while and was so excited when I ordered them! They came quickly (thank you Zappos!) and were in perfect condition. Definitely order one size smaller than you need (I usually wear a 7 to 7 1/2 and ordered a 6 in these boots). I found them to be snug on my calves. I went to Nordstrom and tried on a pair of the wide calves (they don't come in glossy in wide calve at Nordstrom), but the shape just wasn't the same (they bent in places when you walk around). I do love them, even though I can only wear them with skirts or leggings on rainy days!

These boots are awesome. I was really hesitant to get these over the "Huntress" because I have more athletic calves as well and they're sometimes way too big to fit in boots and sometimes they barely make it. Well this time, they definitely make it. I don't have a ton of room to wear really baggy pants inside of them but leggings and skinny jeans wont be a problem at all. I can't wait until it rains!

I'm petite (5' tall) and I ordered the 35-36. I usually wear a 6 in boots. Unfortunately, this boot is too tall for me. It hits at least 2 inches above where it should. Sadly, I am returning them.

Love these boots! Almost hoping for it to rain! Very comfortable. Can wear with or without socks...heavy or light. The red looks like it's plugged in! Makes me smile on gloomy days. Thanks, Zappos!

Generally like the boots and recommend getting the fleece liners if you live in a cooler climate. The only gripe is that they don't sell half sizes (like many other wellies). I've had to settle for a slightly smaller 7 since the 8s were enormous!

These shoes are not only comfortable but versatile for any occasion. I was a little worried about buying a 9 since my size is 9 1/2 but they comfortably.

Wonderful boot until my left boot began to dull and look completely different from the other. Now the buckle has broken off. These are rain boots and it's not like I am wearing them every day. Loved them at first; now, dissatisfied.

Love these! They're so cute. I'm typically a size nine...sometimes 8.5, but got these in an 8. And they fit perfectly! I got the navy blue. They're also very comfortable.

Great boots! I wear them in snow or rain, especially since I'm in a school where we get blizzards all the time. My feet are kept warm, and I've never experienced any wet instances where the water comes through the boot. Make sure to wipe with a warm cloth to keep the gloss and condition looking new!!

Cute and durable. I usually wear a 7 or 7.5. I ordered a 7 because I read reviews saying they feel a half size larger. Those reviews were true. The 7 is even a little big, but sometimes I like to wear them with thick socks, so I'm ok with that.

Despite the low marks for comfort, I really love these boots. I do not expect rain boots to have great arch support, and compared to others I have tried the Hunter boots are actually better as far as rubbing my feet and causing blisters. I am 5'2", and I find that the shaft height is a little taller than I would like. I is not bothersome enough for me to return the boots, though.

Boots are great. I washed my car wearing them in 40 degree weather -- kept my feet dry and warm! I wore a regular knee sock inside and it worked fine. I returned the Wellie Sock because it felt too bulky and moved around too much.

Brands I'd also recommend: D Pliner and S Weitzman are my favs!

I really like these boots, but I have only worn them once or twice. In my opinion you should order a size up if you are a half size. The color is great and they really pop in a sea of black rain boots. They are a touch spacious around the ankle and calf for me which is good for someone who wears flared jeans. I only wear skinny jeans, but they are not so spacious that it's an issue. They are very cute and they just make you want to go splash around in them. I definitely recommend them.

I'm usually between an 8.5 and a 9.5, and the 9s fit perfectly. I love the slim fit to the calf; my old rainboots were so wide that when it was pouring rain they would literally fill up from the top opening! So stylish and practical; hope these last a long time.

Tightly disappointing: I purchased size 7 (I typically wear a size 7 1/2 or 8 in shoes and an 8 1/2 in running shoes and have wide-ish feet). These boots are well made, however they are made in China, not Scotland (anymore). I already knew this and bought them anyway as I am looking for quality boots to replace my cheapies. The lining is nice, and the footbed is padded with a (probably) removable insole; the foot part in plenty big enough even with thick socks, even wide feet. If you can get the boot up to your calf, that is. Straps are for decoration only- they are not functional. The inner circumference/calf of the size 7 is only 14.5 inches. Many ladies will not be able to wear these! I am one of them, sadly. Cheapies I tried at other stores fit, and I can tuck jeans in, but these cut the circulation off. My cheapies split at the seams. Out of curiosity, I may try the shorter version one day, but I am super disappointed in these boots due to sizing. For the price, they should make a larger calf size, ie 16 inches.

The boot is great! If you are in cold weather though you will definitely need to wear warm socks, which is fine, but make sure you get an appropriate size. The top of the boot is pretty slim around the calf too, so you can't really fit thick pants and socks comfortably.
