About Hunter

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.

    I order the boot one size up. I'm glad I did because they were a tight fit. I also bought the Hunter socks for these boots to make them more comfortable for longer wear.

    I desperately needed rain boots as my job includes a 1.5 mile walking commute and we've had serious deluges in Seattle this winter. After spending an entire day at work with wet feet and jeans, I decided to pull the trigger on a pair of Hunter boots. Pricey, but worth it in the end. I read the reviews on the Hunter Originals and the Hunter Original Tour boots, and went with the Tours as people mentioned that they were lighter and easier to walk in, the latter being really important to me. Plus, the purple boots were on sale and I love purple, nice! I have a narrow heel and wide forefoot, and the boot fits really well. I have skinny calves (13") so these boots have some room, but not too much looks-wise. I'm able to wear them for my walking commute, and also all day in the office. They look nice with skinny jeans or leggings and an oversize sweater. Biggest positive is that I haven't had to suffer through wet shoes and socks since I got these boots. Huge plus! Sizing: I got a size 8 and it fits perfectly. For comparison, in Keens I wear a 9, in Naots a 39, in Rockport Cobb Hill an 8.5, and in Clarks Artisan an 8.

    Liked the boots, but the rubber was very smelly! Not as cute as the matte finish!

    Okay, they do run big! I ordered the adjustable backs size 10, because I didn't like the look of the huntress boot. I expected these not to fit. My calf is 17.5 inches and I weigh 270! I've been losing weight and knew these wouldn't fit but wanted them as goal shoes. They not only fit, they were too big! Lol. Big in the foot and around the ankle. I still love them though. I'm ordering a 9 to see which I keep. The adjustable back shoes open very wide.

    Very comfortable and good fit in the calf... not tight like some other brands.

    Very cute boots and great color. Very sad that have a terrible glue smell. I expected a rubber smell, but not this and really don't want to wear it.

    I am in love with these boots. I bought the bright yellow ones and they are like sunshine on an otherwise dark and stormy day. I also ordered the Ugg rain boots (which are less than 1/2 the price) but these were just too awesome to pass up, so I returned the Uggs. I wear a size 9 1/2 and I usually have to size up for shoes that don't come in 1/2 sizes. For Hunter boots though, I wear a 9 and they fit perfectly. I have another pair of Hunters (tall rain boots) that I've had for 10 years and they still look new. I figured why mess with a good thing! They are worth the money!

    Bought these as a gift for my mother in law. She's normally a 6, we had to get her a 5. We purchased military red. She adores them!
