The Perfectly Packable Hunter Tour Boots







February has arrived, and I’ve reached the point where winter has lost its idyllic appeal. I’ve had my fill of skiing, hot chocolate, and heavy jackets. Dressing for this time of year can be a little discouraging when every shop window is an ode to spring, and a New England winter calls for comfort and practicality.

There are days I throw common sense out the window and slip on a pair of bright heels, garnering a few stares from the older generations who love to remark that just looking at my feet makes them cold. On the in between days I’ve been walking around in the new Hunter Tour Boots. As shown in the pictures above they can be dressed up or down, worn in rain or snow, and are lighter/less clunky than the original Hunter style. This is ideal for me because I tend to do a lot of running around the office and the Tour Boots don’t make my feet swelter even with the liners on.The other thing I really like about them is that they are so easy to pack. I go away at least once or twice a month and “aim” to bring only one weekend bag with me. The Hunter Tour boots fold over and leave plenty of room, perfect in case I overpack or pick up a few new pieces along the way.

  3. A pair of these are going to be ideal for my when I move back to England. My life there involved constantly hopping on the train back and forth between a rather (at times) muddy country farm and the streets of London, and I had to leave my Hunters in the country because they were impossible to take on the train, which meant cold and wet feet when it snowed in the city!

  7. I love Hunters but making them more travel friendly is definitely an improvement. I'll still love my Original Tall boots but I'm adding these to my list of things to buy.

  29. Sarah,

    Where are those khaki skinny jeans from? They almost look like jodhpurs (and the look great on you).

    Thank you,
