If you’ve ever read a blog before, then you probably know what Hunter Boots are. Every blogger from here to South America wears Hunter Boots and come fall — they are popping up everywhere from blogs to Twitter and the biggest offender…Instagram! So, what the hell is the big deal about these Hunter Rain Boots? I made it my mission to find out. Why are Hunter Boots so expensive? Why are Hunter Boots so popular? What makes Hunter Boots so special? Why are Hunter Boots the only boots people recommend? Let’s dive in!
Hunter Boots — What’s The Big Deal? Why Are They So Expensive?
Aren’t Hunter Boots just rain boots?
No. They are all-weather boots and have traction. Not only can you easily slip them over a pair of leggings or jeans on a rainy day, you can line them with boot socks and fur inserts for cold and icy weather.
Hunter Boots seem really high on your leg. What’s up with that?
They are. It’s to keep your legs warm from arctic breezes, slush, puddles and annoying cars that speed past you in parking lots and send wet & winter debris your way.
Hunter Boots are expensive.
You’re right. Hunter Boots aren’t cheap, but they’re also a quality piece for your wardrobe. Costco recently had a deal on them (which is how I was able to do this research) for almost half off the original price. And to be quite frank, after wearing them, I would pay the regular price for them! Not only are they comfortable on their own, I added gel inserts for a little extra foot support.
It doesn’t rain too much where I am, so Hunter Boots would be a waste.
You can wear them just like regular boots! I loved pairing mine with a fur best and some chunky jewelry for a wintery look while I was visiting family in Pennsylvania. I’m counting down the days until we live in a place with seasons again! I also wore them for our cruise to Alaska and they were perfect!
So tell me..do you have a pair? What do you think?
