These boots are very comfortable. I really like the flat sole better than the typical rain boot heel—for aesthetic reasons only though. I also love the tab on the back of these boots; it makes pulling the boots on with one hand super easy (I rarely walk out of the house empty handed, and usually have a dog pulling me as well, so not having to set all my stuff down or let the dog run away is a bonus). The boot shaft hits me at about lower to mid calf, which I prefer over knee-height rain boots (for reference I am 5’5”). They do seem to run a bit large, so instead of my typical size 8 I got a 7 and they fit perfectly. I don’t wear super thick socks with them, though; if I did I would probably go with the 8.

I decided to buy these since the traditional tall Hunters are too tall, and hit me in the back of the knee (I’m 4’10”), and I found the short Hunter styles to be a bit pricey for what they are. It wasn’t too important to me to need the option of fleece liners (which i can’t find for these) but i decided that didn’t matter since i already have winter boots. These things led me to choose the Original Play style. I normally wear a 6 but found the 6 too big, so tried a 5. They fit comfortably with socks, and while they’re a bit more snug than I’d prefer in a rain boot, i find them pretty comfortable. My favorite part is they fit well over my calves while wearing skinny jeans, and are the perfect height for someone with short legs. I find that i wear them a lot in wet/slushy weather while running errands, and kind of wish i had bought them sooner!

Love these boots! This is my second pair of Hunter boots and I'm just as happy with this second purchase as I was with my first pair. These come up to my mid calf and are very comfortable. They are slightly bigger than a standard size 9 but that allows me to wear them with wool socks which makes them extra cozy and warm. They are pretty light weight and I really like the wedge heel which adds a bit more stability and comfort. Such a great price and the color is super cheerful on gloomy, rainy days :) Highly recommend!

These are perfect, easy on and off rain boots, fun color, and comfy. Not good support if you have to walk a lot but plenty of room to slip an orthotic inside if needed as they run a bit wide. I hope they last!

Love these boots! Much more comfortable than any other rain boots I’ve owned. Not stiff at all and they are a little shorter than the typical tall rain boot height which I like because it doesn’t hit me behind the knees (I’m 5’ 3”) Also some rain boots are a pain to take on and off but these are nice and easy! If you’re on the fence: buy them.

These are the best rain boots! They are just the right height to easily stuff your pants into them, and they don't chafe your skin if you're not wearing pants. The soles are slightly inflexible because of the platform, but it's not uncomfortable and they make up for it in cuteness. I love the look and feel of these boots!

This is the first pair of rain boots I've ever owned and I love them! The fit it true to size (just follow what the Zappo's recommendations advise for the size to select) and they are very comfortable. I wanted to be able to go on long walks in the city in the rain, and these boots let me do exactly that. I wear them all day and they keep my feet warm and dry. I love the cute red, white and blue tab in the back - makes them playful. Oh and they're also easy to put on and take off, which was not the case with other rain boots that I tried on.

I really truly love love love this Hunter boots! My very first pair and I can already see this being a lifelong relationship between this brand & my “feeties!” Modern twist on the soles - wedgewise, compared to the traditional soles Hunter boots are well known for. I love how it hits right around mid-calf with plenty of room.

This is my second pair because I love this particular style so much and the mini wedge heal is so cute. I'm a 7.5 and the 7 is a good fit with a nice thick pair of socks.

I really think I was skeptical because of the comments about the foot and calf width of the boot. I’m glad I bought them. Easy to get on and off and the calf width is not a problem...I am a plus size woman, so calf widths are sometimes a problem for me. Depending on your height is where the boot shaft height will hit you on your calf. I’m 5’9 the boots hit me about mid calf. Only issue I have is the original price point of Hunter boots are a bit steep....I’ll always be buying them on a discount.

Great option for anyone who, like me, finds to taller Hunters too tall and/or narrow.

They are super cute, but they are not “tall”. They are a mid height. The typical hunter tall shafts are 15in these are only 11in. I like knee high boots and this color scheme does not come in 15in so I returned.

I usually wear a size 7 in all shoes but in the original Hunter boots the 7 is too big so I always order a size 6… I ordered these in a size 6 and they were too big so I had to return them and get a size 5! They fit perfectly and are so cute! Love love love them!

These boots fit like a dream. I generally wear a size 6 1/2 in shoes but my feet swell at times so I sized up for comfort. The quality of the boot is strong and seems sturdy. I have a good amount of space but not too much that it is uncomfortable.

Love how easy it is to split on. Very comfortable. I bought the black one ... so classic with a cute touch of color with the pull. Highly recommend.

I love these boots! I have the black refined boots & I like them but the black has turned powdery from it being true rubber. So I wanted a pair that was colorful in hopes that it won’t happen. I really like the color of these and I like that they don’t come up as high as the original boots I have. They are easier to get off. I wear 7 1/2 in Nike & adidas & I got a size 7 in these & they fit perfect with socks. I love them for outdoor sports in Ohio... protects my feet from all the rain during spring. They aren’t the warmest or most comfortable but I still wear them to protect my feet & pants.

I love my Hunter boots. I previously had an original tall pair but I found them too tall--I'm 5'7" and they sometimes bothered knees. They are also easier to slip on and off. I also find the slight wedge to be fun and stylish. They do not have much arch support at all but most rain boots are lacking in that area.

This is comfortable and stylish. Surprisingly light as well. Very easy to get in and out, don't have problem with that suction feeling. I can wear them all day. My go to boot for rainy weather.

I like the wedge platform but I switched out the insole for my own with a better arch for more support but I find that necessary with all my shoes. The red is a fun bright color. The 11” height is perfect for me, I’m 5’3”. Look forward to wearing these for gardening, playing with the grandkids muddy adventures, yard work and walking the dog.

This was my first ever purchase of a rain boot. The pull tab makes them easy on and they are actually very comfortable in the foot bed. I like the look of these much better than the original, especially in the heel.

These are my first pair of Hunters and I can definitely see what all the fuss is about! The most comfortable rain/ garden/ dog walking/ puddle splashing boots I’ve ever had! Love!!
