Introducing the Imperfects​

Minor imperfections, major discounts (65%) and a special giveback to The Prince’s Countryside Fund (10%). Strictly limited availability.

Known for boots crafted to perfection, Le Chameau is synonymous with quality. Our commitment to the highest standards means that a mere fault can cause a boot to be rejected. While fit for purpose and meeting our rigorous waterproof testing, these less-than-perfect boots don’t meet our meticulous measures. Now it’s your chance to secure a pair of The Imperfects. With minor faults including discolouration, scratches, blemishes, slight damage or inconsistencies, this strictly limited range of boots is available at sixty five percent less than standard retail price. Please note this product has a small drill hole punched in the top of the boot to mark it as Imperfect and arrives in a non-branded brown box with no tissue paper. The Imperfects are available now to UK customers only.

We would recommend buying a care sponge and other care products for your boots. These products will help to clean any blooming or blemishes from your imperfect boot and will keep them looking and performing in the best possible condition.

The Prince’s Countryside Fund

Founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2010, The Prince’s Countryside Fund is the only UK-wide charity that’s creating a real future for rural Britain.


The countryside - what it does, what it produces and what it offers - has an impact on us all. The Prince’s Countryside Fund wishes to see a living, breathing, working countryside that it is there for everyone. The PCF works to enable family farms to thrive, and to build confident rural communities through their programmes and initiatives, from providing free business skills and environmental management training to farming families, to investing in essential rural services. Each year, we support thousands of people living and working in the countryside to have a brighter future.

Keith Halstead, Executive Director of The Prince’s Countryside Fund said:

“British family farms are facing the most significant changes to their businesses in living memory, alongside further pressures coming from the war in Ukraine and the impacts that the Covid-19 pandemic had on our rural communities – the combination of these factors has presented massive challenges to the very fabric of rural life. Our family farmers and rural communities need support, not only to survive these seismic shifts in their lives, but also to thrive by making the most of the new opportunities which are being presented to them. With thanks to support from Le Chameau, we will be able to empower more family farmers and rural communities to enable them to navigate these challenges to create a sustainable future for them, the countryside and our whole nation.”
