Bought this boot after trying the Jennifer in a store and being unable to get it over my calf. The shaft height of this boot is perfect for me - and I can get my jeans in no problem. I love the matte finish in the black pair, and how lightweight this boot is. A great boot at a great price (no need to spring for those Hunters!). I wear an 8.5 and got a 9, fit perfectly. I have slightly wide feet that don't usually feel great in boots, but the width is great, even with socks. Will be great with wool socks in the fall rain.

I absolutely love these boots. If you are familiar with Hunter boots then you will love these because these are pretty much Hunter boots but with a huge discount! I suggest Kamik Heidi to everybody who has a lot of rain where they live, like Washington for example.

So disappointed. Looks beautiful, fits horribly. I first tried a size 9, could not get my foot in. Next tried 10, got my foot in barely but the shaft is so tight my ankle & calf barely fit and I have skinny ballet dancer legs! I give up. Going to a local Target to try on boots and make sure they fit before I buy. Sorry Zappos.

I love the color (red) and the style of this rain boot. They are a very substantial rubber boot, and I have no worries about having wet feet in the rain or snow. They are very stylish and affordable. I originally ordered my usual shoe size. I needed to return them as they were too small. I opted to go a full size larger so that I may wear them with a heavy sock - a perfect fit. This boot, due to its rubber construction can create a suction effect when removing them. Having a little extra room with the full size larger makes removing the boots easier, and the little bit of wiggle room does not feel too big. What excellent customer service from Zappos with my exchange!

Small through instep, so makes it hard to get on/off. I returned to size up a half size. Love them otherwise, great color, feel, quality construction.

I am very happy with this purchase. I would recommend that other customers wear the boot a few times before making up their minds about them. The boots felt awkward the first time I wore them because I was not use to driving in boots. The second time I wore them they felt a lot better. They keep my feet completely dry in the rain, and I love wearing them. I bought a size 7. I normally wear a 6 1/2 - 7. Also the price point is half the price of their leading competitors. Highly recommend these boots.

I work in a dog kennel and these boots are great. They keep my feet dry when we are cleaning cages and if I have to hold a muddy dog between my legs, the boots are tall enough that they often protect my pants depending on size of dog. I have walked dogs in the rain and my feet stay dry. The only complaint that I personally have is that when working inside the dog kennel, it can get really hot. The boots are so tall and they don't allow my legs below my knees to breath, so when I remove my boots, from the knee down is soaked with sweat. So I highly recommend for outdoor use.

I'm happy. These rain boots are more supportive than typical rubber or vinyl rain boots. Nice looking, can be dressed up or down (I chose the burgundy) and my coworkers agreed they look good. They are a little slender on the leg but not a problem for the average to thinner calf. My calf is thinner so I didn't want a really wide opening accenting that. I chose a size 9 when I often need 9.5. For me, this was a good fit with a thinner sock. I would order your regular size if you plan to use a thicker sock for the cold. Def get your personal larger size if you want ease of removal. But a not-too-loose wearing feel was more important to me. Kamik also has a recycling program for their used rubber boots, which I thought admirable.

These boots are very well made, and very comfortable. Also very stylish. I was worried since the price of them had me wondering if they would look cheap - they definitely do not look cheap. I have small calves and they actually fit them. Its really hard to find slim rainboots. It's also hard to find tall ones... these have a very flattering height. I bought a pair for myself and liked them so much I bought another for a friend for her birthday. I have the charcoal color, she has the cornflower blue. Both are very nice colors. Excellent value for such a reasonable price.

I got these in Dewberry size 7. They look exactly as pictured. So cute! I was a little worried since I have a narrow ankle, but as long as I wear socks, my ankle does not move around in the boot. And as a rain boot, it does its job perfectly, keeping my pants and feet dry.

Overall, a cute boot, as other reviewers have stated. I agree that the calf is narrow, but being petite that is often to be expected, it did not stretch out or break in. I was able to fit over my jeans, but became uncomfortable after a time and I ended up with red rings around my calves. Too late to return, sadly, as a larger size would likely have worked better. I ordered a half size up from my usual. Also, it should be noted that the "color of the boot" is actually supplied by a colored cloth liner, and the rubber is actually clear. This I failed to notice until the black from my stockings rubbed black marks into the cloth at points of contact, ie: the toes. So the appearance of the boot is now somewhat marred, as these smudges are not something I can wipe off. This was after a long day of wear (part of my Halloween costume) and oh my, two words: sweaty sweaty feet! Okay, that was three, but you'll see what I mean. These boots are hot boxes and with the snug calf, no air circulates.

I love the boots - however, they run very small. I wear 7 1/2-8 - I ordered an 8. I had a tough time getting the boot on and off with a sock. Had to have my husband pull the boot off. Ordering the next size up.

I absolutely love the style of the boot! However, the shaft of the boot is very narrow. I've never had an issue with the width of a rain boot before (I've bought Sperry boots before) and was pretty disappointed. My calves seem to have a slight muffin top situation on the top of the boot, which just isn't flattering. I'm hoping that wearing them with skinny pants will help.

I absolutely fell in love with this boot! I took it to Alaska for a two week river rafting trip, and wore these boots almost the entire time. They were just the right height to wade around in the muck. The soles were grippy enough for me to use them on hikes, and although I worried they would chafe, I had no problems. Plus, they were a nice colorful contrast to the somber mud boots most folks were wearing. Two additional notes: The decorative buckle is fine, but sort of gets in the way. And secondly, I usually wear 8.5-9, but had to order this in a 10.

Super pretty in red. Unfortunately, the other reviewers were right. The fit was very strange; the foot was too wide, enough to be clunky, but the calf was too tight, enough to chafe my legs. No way could I fit a pair of jeans in there. So disappointed!

I tried these before the more expensive brands. I wanted a true knee high rain boot and these were perfect. I've worn them several times since receiving them and I've been happy so far. It's a bit odd to walk down stairs as the all rubber doesn't bend and give in the same way another shoe would. Also, tall socks or pants/leggings tucked in are pretty much a must. I slipped them on with shorts to deal with a summer storm and they rub the back of my calf behind my knee a bit. Not enough to hurt! but enough to be annoying and uncomfortable.

I got these after order the taller version of this boot, and realizing they were just too tight for my calves. I also ordered a size up so that I can wear them with thick socks in the winter. I just wish these came with a better color selection, like Hunters, but I'm please with the quality and shape at this pricepoint.

I LOVE these boots. The Flora pattern is a fun pop of color and this style gives a nice silhouette. I am 5'4" and bought the size 8 {I normally wear 7 or 7.5}, they fit well with room for socks and come to just below my knees. I have rather muscular calves and these give me plenty of room. I wore these with skinny jeans and medium weight wool socks in the wet winter/spring and kept my feet very warm and dry. They are a bit warm during the summer, but I sometimes wear them while working in the garden. They are very well made with Eco rubber {no bad rubber smell} in Canada. I expect them to last me a long time. I would buy Kamik anytime over the grossly overpriced Hunter brand which are clunky, smelly, and made in China. I also bought my daughter a pair of Kamik wellies too. Highly recommend this brand.

I needed a pair of boots for rain and also mucking around a friend's farm. These boots are comfortable and fit well. I have fairly narrow calves (14") and there isn't a whole lot of room around them, so I don't recommend them for anyone who doesn't have somewhat skinny legs.

I really wanted to love these but I had a few issues with them. As other reviewers have stated, they were very tight in the arch/instep area. Also, they were tighter around my calves than I prefer; I wouldn't have been able to tuck in my pant legs. They felt very slim fitting all the way around. I ended up going with the Kamik Jenny, which fit much better for me (very comfortable!) and are slightly shorter, avoiding the tight around the calves issue.

I love these boots! They are very comfortable, much more so than I expected. The quality is great and I love the fact that they are made in Canada! I'm normally a size 8.5-9, depending on the type of shoe so I ordered a 9 and they fit well. I have high arches, a wider foot, and a high instep so I do have to give them a slight tug to get them off but that's normal for me with most boots. There is a bit of wiggle room around my foot but if I sized down to an eight I highly doubt I would be able to get them on and off. That also gives me room to put them with a heavier pair of socks. I just returned a pair of Kamik Olivia boots as they were too tight in the instep and too tight around my calves. These, being a few inches shorter, fit perfectly around and leave plenty of room to tuck in my jeans. All in all, I'm quite pleased!
