Consider Buying Children's Sizes
Fashion bloggers like Kelly Larkin know a secret for saving money on Hunter Boots. For women who wear a size 7.5 or smaller, it's possible to buy a "Big Kids" size for about half the price.
Check out Larkin's size conversion chart for Hunter Boots on her blog, Kelly in the City, as well as photos on the Mint Arrow blog comparing the women's boots with the children's boots — which are shorter and smaller in the calf area.
Hunt for Sales and Deals
Luckily, there always seem to be Hunter Boots sales. Check the sale section on the official Hunter Boots website, where original Tour boots were recently $104.95 (normally $150), Original Kids Floral Rain Boots cost $59.95 (regularly $85), and Men's Original Tall Two-Tone Rain Boots were $115.95 (regularly $165).
SEE ALSO: When Is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
Larkin also notes the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale every July as a good time to look for Hunter Boots, and that Nordstrom Rack is worth checking for sales. (Not long ago, Nordstrom Rack listed boots and socks for up to 68% off the retail price.) Amazon also sometimes has deals on Hunter Boots, and the Shopbop Friends & Family Sale — held every spring and fall — is a good time to look for discounted boots as well, she says.
