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 love the boots ... have wanted them for a long time. I finally bought them. After a few months of wearing them periodically .. my left back of foot has become bruised by the way they rub up on my bone. It's not a blister .. more of a pain. I tend to not wear them now because of this pain when I have them on.. disappointed.
In contrast to the other reviewers, I like this shoe very much. I agree that it is a bit heavy in the hand, but when worn the weight is not noticeable. The heel is very high, which takes a bit of practice if you are not used to wearing high heels. Do not try to run across the street wearing these things! It is not an elegant boot, but a funky rain boot alternative. It also makes my legs look idiotically long, which never hurts.
My daughter loves these boots! the color is perfect and can be worn with many things! The boot is short in length which makes them extra comfortable.
These pass as regular boots! I wore these even when it wasn't raining and they were met with a compliments. I do have other hunter boots and find that I can walk in them as though I am wearing shoes. I don't stumble and stomp like with other rain boots. I did go up a half size, but the boots still didn't look big.
They fit great! My daughter loves the color!
I've been wanting a pair of Hunter rain boots for awhile now and I finally caved in a bought them. I wear a size 8 1/2 in shoes and an 8 in these boots fit me perfectly. Can't wait for a rainy day!
Classic. My go to rainboot!
I just received both the Hunter original short in matte and this pair of refined short in glossy. The glossy ones fit my foot better and are lighter. I do prefer this pair of glossy better then the original short but the size 7 is to narrow for my feet. They rub slightly on the widest part of my feet. I might be able to live with that but one side pushes down on the top of my foot and it is pretty uncomfortable. I am a solid size 7 in most shoes and am disappointed in having to send these back. I do own 2 other pairs of hunters in a size 7 and the original short fits my foot fine. I will try the one size up. This really is the disadvantage of ordering shoes on-line. Back they go.
These boots feel very cheaply made, in fact they feel just like the pair I have from Target that cost $20!
I bought the adjustable back version because I have big calves and I couldn't be happier! They're snug, but not in a bad way. Very comfortable foot bed and can't beat the beautiful bright violet color! I'm usually a 9 or 9.5 depending on the brand/shoe. I ordered a 9 and they're perfect
