Hunter Boots Sizing: How Well do They Fit?

Generally speaking, Hunter boots run true to size. The exception is if you usually wear a half size, in which case you should size down.

You may find that although the footbed offers a perfect fit, the calf size might come up small. Luckily, Hunter boots offer a range of different styles with some catering specifically to wide calves. These include the Huntress and the Original Wide Leg boot.

Are Hunter Boots Available in UK Sizes?

Hunter boots are available in UK, US, JP and EU sizing. To find the correct size for you, firstly measure your feet and calves. You can then use our Hunter sizing charts above to find your size.

What Size Should I Get in Hunter Boots?

In most instances, you should buy your normal size in Hunter Boots. If you are planning to wear very thick socks with them, consider sizing up. If you are somebody who usually wears half sizes, size down.

If you’re a woman on a budget with feet under a size 7, you can actually fit into some of the larger kids sizes. This is a great money-saving tip but be aware that the kid’s boots are shorter in length than the adult’s versions.

How to Measure for Hunter Boots

As well as measuring your foot from heel to toe, you will also need to measure your calves if you want to buy Hunter boots. To do this, sit down and measure your calf at the widest point using a tape measure. You should do this on both legs and take the largest calf measurement.

If you can, you are recommended to wear the trousers that you intend on wearing with the boots when measuring. If not, add on an extra 0.5cm to allow for the extra.

Sizing Different Types of Hunter Boots

The following are the most popular types of tall Hunter Boots. There are shorter length models available as well.

5.1. The Original Tall Boot

This is the standard boot and the one that springs to mind when most people think of Hunter as a brand. This boot sits comfortably under the knees and will suit anybody of average height and calf width. If you are short, you may want to look at one of Hunter’s shorter boots.

There is some space around the arch so that you can don thick fluffy socks on those cold winter mornings. This doesn’t mean that you need to size up necessarily, although it will depend on the socks and your individual feet.

5.2. The Original Back Adjustable Boot

Ideal for those with wider calves, the leg width of this boot can be adjusted using a buckle. Thai adjustable fit offers more flexibility within the boot, leading to a comfortable and roomy wearing experience.

5.3. The Original Wide Leg Boot

This boot is the wide fitting version of the Original Tall Boot. It is the same height but offers extra room across the entire leg and foot. In total, the Original Wide Leg Boot is around 7.8cm wider around the calf.

5.4. The Refined Slim Boot

Designed for those with a slender frame, this boot is the most closely fitting of any on this list. It snugly fits a slim leg, sitting just under the knee.

5.5. The Huntress

The Huntress Boot is Hunter’s most popular boot for people with wide calves and a more petite frame. These boots are 3cm shorter than the Original Tall Boots making them ideal for shorter people.
