I had been wanting to try out the ‘Tour’ Hunter boots for a while. Once weather really allowed for them, I swooped up the matte black pair from Shopbop and haven’t looked back. As the description describes, these are the packable boots, meaning they’re a lot more flexible and lightweight than the ‘Originals’ (which I also own). The ‘Tour’ boots are also a bit shorter in shaft length and the circumference around the calf seems to be smaller too, which for us petites, is great. More flexibility, lighter in weight (this is huge to me), and a shorter and more narrow shaft, make the ‘Tours’ my all around favorite boot. My only complaint (if you will) about the ‘Tour’ style is the wider less defined shape of the toe, but I think this comes with the fact that the material is a lot more flexible.

Now that I’ve tried the ‘Tour’ style I don’t think I’ll ever go back to the ‘Originals’. A lightweight, stylish, functional boot can’t be beat. A pair in every color, please! For reference, I took my normal size, 5, and they fit TTS.

      Thank you! The one I’m wearing is an xxs petite, but it’s a bit tight for a sweatshirt. I ended up getting another one in xxs regular and it fits perfect.

    Those boots are really cute, and even though I love my regular ones, I do find that because my legs are so short, they are just a little bit too tall for me.

    Next time I need a pair (errr…..”want”), I’ll see if I can grab these ones instead!

      The originals are too tall for me to. The Tours solve that issues for sure!

    Cute! I’ve always wanted a pair of Hunters but never could decide on a style. Now, I just need to choose a color…

    How does the vest fit? Did you get a petite or regular size in that?
    Thank you!! Love the outfit!

      Hi Wendy, I would say the vest runs small in the petite. I originally ordered an xxs petite and had to return it for the xs petite.

    I love that these are lighter weight! I love my classic Hunters but they are so heavy!

      Yes, the Originals are so heavy. The Tours are great and can be worn all day.

    Such a great casual look for a rainy (or snowy, like NYC is right now ;)) day! Love those Hunters!

    I have these and love them! One of the best purchases I’ve ever made. And I love how you styled them.

    I have a pair of the packable Tour boots in yellow and adore them! I’d love to add a second pair in green…how many pairs of Hunter boots is too many? :)

    I didn’t know they brought out a new style. I have the originals which I’ve been wearing this weekend due to the snow we had in London but I will have to look out for the tour ones, thanks for sharing x

    How tall are you? Did you ever consider getting the kids’ sizes?

      I’m 5ft. I think the Tour’s fit fine, so I never tried the kids Hunters.

    How long have you had/worn your Tour boots? I’ve heard that it’s been prone to ripping where the toe bends or that the sole gets detached due to the softer, thinner material. Have you had any signs of this wear and tear on your boots?
