When I got mine they already had those marks

I honestly prefer the original version over the Jimmy Choo one. I think the 'raw and unpolished' look is what makes them good!

I am moving to the UK in a few days and due to the wet weather I don't know if I should buy a pair of this boots.
What do you think about dark olive Hunter for men?
Maybe "too much"?

^If you know you'll be spending loads of time outside/in the country or whatever then I'd say go for it. I've never lived in the UK but I've spent a lot of time visiting family and I've always wished that I had a pair when visiting the fam. We once went to a concert which ended up being in the rain and I really regretted having to borrow my aunties wellies which were a size too big. So I know that if (more like when) I move to the UK I'll certainly be buying a pair. And personally, I like the olive Hunters on both men and women. To me they are a classic.

I'm wondering if a pair of tall black (regular not glossy) could be worn as a winter boot instead of just a rain boot. Obviously when the weather gets bad (snowing and such) it would be deemed appropriate but what about on those chilly fall days with no perception? Would that be weird?

I have. And I love the fact they are also available in men's size now as they are also part of his first mens collection

They are beautiful lifesavers that have been through many a hellish torrential downpour with me.

Have em' in black.

I grew up in the English countryside so, when I go home, Hunters are an essential in either classic green or navy. The general consensus in the countryside is that the only acceptable Hunter colours are black, green and navy. Red, maybe, for the summer! I hate the coloured Hunters and the Jimmy Choo line... not appropriate for country wear! People need to stop trying to make wellingtons more 'fashionable' – it's not possible!

I do think Hunters are a bit overrated, though. Le Chameau's boots are much more cosy... great quality and rather understated.

I have a pair of the graphite glossy ones - very practical when it rains.
