I have lived in my Hunter boots this winter because there has just been SO MUCH SNOW. They may not be the warmest boot, but they are hands down the best for those gross, wet days. I purchased the Original Tall Gloss in black three years ago. I decided to be practical with the classic black because at the time, I still wasn't 100% sure about purchasing a $140 pair of rain boots. Well, my Hunter boots have turned out to be one of my all-time best purchases. They are a staple in my closet. Over the last three years, the price per wear has gotten to be pretty low. I have been wanting to get a second pair in a fun bright color for some time now, but haven't been able to pull the trigger. Do I buy another pair of Hunters? Or do I go for a look for less? With spring approaching, I know that I definitely want to get a new pair. After all, April showers bring May flowers! I have rounded up a few options at every price point that are perfect for spring.
While I have my eye on a new pair of Hunters, Joules has great mid-range options that are good quality boots. But, let's talk about the Target options - they are super cute and about $100 less than a pair of Hunters! That is pretty hard to ignore. I especially love the mint polka dot pair. And how about that polka dot pair from DSW? While I thought I wanted a bright color, there is just something about navy and polka dots that I can't resist!
Another way to keep the cost down is to consider purchasing in kids size, if you are able. Hunter Big Kid rain boots are only $75 compared to $130-140 for a women's pair. I have heard that these are a better fit for those who are petite. If I go with another pair of Hunters, I will try them in the Big Kid size. Now, if only I could decide which color! I am kicking myself for not snatching up the mint or the coral last year. I have my eye on the Crimson Pink, but they appear to be few and far between. I am also loving the Lipstick Pink and Jade.
While we're on the topic of Hunters, I have also heard great things about the Hunter Tour Packable Rain Boot. They are much lighter than the original rain boot, and I am told they are more comfortable. They don't come in as many colors, but they are another great option to consider! My favorite is the yellow!
Are rain boots a closet must-have for you? I'd love to hear which pair you'd choose!
