The origin of the boot

Originally the leather boot was developed for the male field enthusiast, this sporting boot was typically worn with shooting socks and breeks whilst deer stalking.

While the Chameau-Lite is still aimed at this audience, it is also the perfect shoe for those needing an expert outdoor walking boot. Today, it greatly appeals to females and those living a country lifestyle due to its supreme protection and comfort, ideal for daily wear.

Chameau-Lite Features & Benefits

Our Chameau-Lites have been designed to be the lightest and most comfortable hunting boots on the market. Weighing just 1250 gram/pair, these quality walking boots provide the ideal footwear for long, challenging hikes.

What Material Are Chameau-Lite Boots Made From?

Designed in partnership with tyre experts Michelin, the boot’s Deep Forest sole is based on motocross tyre technology resulting in an exceptionally light, hardwearing, and comfortable outsole that offers flexibility and grip in the most demanding terrain.

The exterior of the boot is made from full grain Terracare leather. This environmentally friendly material has been developed using lower water and chemical consumption during its tanning process.

Are the Boots Waterproof?

The Chameau-Lite has many noteworthy features, however, the pièce de resistance has to be the LCX technology: this 5-layer construction makes up the inner lining of the boot. The LCX lining prevents water from permeating the boot while simultaneously allowing water vapor to escape meaning your feet will stay dry and comfortable all day long. The leather boots are 100% waterproof and breathable making them fantastic for all weather types.

How Durable are Chameau-Lite boots?

All our Le Chameau Wellington boots are designed with durability in mind. Our Chameau-Lite collection is carefully crafted using only the finest of materials making them one of most durable walking boots. The body of the boot is made with environmentally friendly Terracare leather. This is an extremely resilient full gain leather, which will be able to stand the most difficult terrains.

Chameau-Lite Boot Size & Fit

When shopping our Chameau-Lite collection, we recommend ordering one size larger than you would usually wear. This is due to the tight-fit nature of the leather boot.

What Activities Are Chameau-Lite Boots Perfect For?


For longer, more challenging walks, the Chameau-Lites offer stability, support, protection, and comfort. The expert ‘Deep Forest’ Michelin sole results in a hiking boot that can tackle even the most treacherous terrain. Also, the breathable yet waterproof LCX technology means these shoes are perfect for wear all year round.


Due to the comfortable qualities of the Chameau-Lite boot, they also make the best walking boot. You don’t have to be able to hike up a mountain to enjoy the benefits of this leather boot.
