Choosing the Right Boot for Your Activities
1st December 2020 by Lillie Elliott
With such a wide range of footwear on offer at Le Chameau, it can come across as a daunting task when trying to decide which is the right boot for you.
All our shoes have been meticulously developed using different linings, materials, and technologies to cater for specific activities. With this in mind, the best thing to do before purchasing is to research our different options to find a boot that supports and improves your chosen activity.
Our lightweight and supoortive Chameau-Lite range provides walkers with a choice of three different heights. Created using innovative multi-layer Le Chameau LCX ® technology, this boot is waterproof and breathable, tackling the most difficult weathers and terrrains with ease. This complex technology prevents water permeating the boot whilst simultaneously allowing vapour to escape easily.
Developed in partnership with Michelin, these showws feature a 'Deep Forest' sole that 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.
Due to the tighter fit found in our Chameau-Lite range, we recommend ordering 1 size larger than you would usually wear.
Our Vierzon and Vierzonord boots are perfect for people that spend a lot of their time in the garden. From those who can always be found in the allotment to those that are tackling large landscaping jobs. Our Vierzonord provides comfort up to -15°C with its 3mm neoprene lining, whereas the Vierzon is better suited to summer with its breathable polycotton jersey interior.
For women, our Giverny style boots are clear favourites for avid gardeners. The traditional tall wellington boot has been cut specifically for women using an aluminium last, creating the perfect fit. Our alternative style, the shorter bottillion, has all the same features but as a chic ankle boot. Both options feature a breathable, stretchy polycotton lining that moulds to your foot and wicks away moisture. The dual-density cross sole provides a shank reinforcement board for better stability and reduced fatigue.
These extremely durable boots are quick-drying, anti-skid and reinforced for maximum support, protection and comfort. Our Alize wellington boots come with the choice of either Ponti or neoprene lining. This tall, salt-water resistant boot also has a dual density Michelin Sail sole for unrivalled grip and nylon around the top of the boot with a quick-release cord to prevent water entering the boot.
The Marine Evo Ponti lined boot features a durable anti-skid sole, a protected, salt water resistant upper and reinforced side, rear and front panel for maximum protection, stability and support of leg, foot and ankle.
The men's Oceane Ponti thigh wellington boots are Kevlar reinforced and have a dual density Ostrea sole that ensures strong grip and resistance to abrasion. Perfect for shallow waters, the jersey Ponti lining provides comfortable ventilation and will keep your feet warm at temperatures as low as 5 degrees.
Alternatively, we have the unisex Deltanord thigh wellington boots that are made from premium rubber that is waterproof and flexible. The anti-skid River Limaille sole has embedded iron filings which is perfect for freshwater and seashore fishing. The great traction on river bottom and shore rocks will allow you to stay dry and secure on your feet
The Cérès boot has been developed for agricultural professionals in partnership with Michelin and is designed for warmth, durability and resistance to harsh farm wastes and chemicals. This lightweight, 3mm neoprene-lined, reinforced agricultural boot comes with a self-cleaning Michelin Agri sole. Conforms to EN ISO 20-347: 2012 OB E safety standards.
Developed in partnership with Michelin, the Agri sole provides the same high performance as their agricultural tractor tyres. The outsole tread uses Michelin Ultraflex tyre auto-cleaning technology, distributing weight evenly giving better grip on soft ground and dislodging soil and mud while walking.
The jersey lined option comes in a low and tall wellington boot to best suit the footwear you like to have during the warmer months. Whereas the neoprene lining only comes in tall to offer the best protection possible from cold, harsh weather.
While the Vierzonord is another popular choice of wellington boot for shooting, it is also a superb boot for everyday country life. This shoe boasts an insulating neoprene lining that will keep you comfortable and warm all day in temperatures as low as 15 degrees.
The adjustable waterproof gusset also features a snap-fastening buckle to provide a comfortable fit around the leg and calf. This boot has a shock-absorbing dual-density Grip outsole which prevents fatigue, resists abrasion and is suitable for all terrains.
Alternatively, the Iris is our brightest boot to date and comes in seven beautiful colours. From dresses to jeans and the farm to town, these shoes are ideal for women who like to make a statement with their shoes.
Men's shooting boots have got to be comfortable and warm so they can be worn in range of weathers and terrains all day without disruption.
The Chasseur is a popular boot for shooting and is regularly seen out in the field on men and women. This shoe is ideal for shooting, as the full-length waterproof zip provides extra protection and makes it easy to get on and off. The dual density sole is tough on the outside and manoeuvres uneven and muddy ground with ease. This, combined with shank reinforcement and better arch support, offers complete comfort and stability for long days of standing.
These are our only boots that come with the option of every lining we offer – jersey, leather, wool and neoprene - so you can team your boot the interior that best suits you.
