MASTER BOOTMAKERS SINCE 1927
Le Chameau are the only rubber boots to be handmade by a single master bootmaker, each pair is unique. Using the highest quality materials and with a range of iconic and innovative styles, Le Chameau Maîtres Bottiers have been making our boots by hand for over 90 years. Every Le Chameau boot is constructed by one Maîtres Bottier. In order to become a Maîtres Bottier it takes 9 months of training before they are permitted to construct their first rubber boot.
The Le Chameau rubber boot begins with the design and sourcing of our material. We pick only the finest ingredients; our natural rubber, our leathers and our neoprene linings are all of the highest quality. Our design teams explore new technologies and learn from our archives to ensure we continue to innovate while retaining timeless shapes and proven methods.
Our boots have all been handcrafted with comfort at the forefront for specific industries, ways of life, and seasons. For Fieldsports and farming, where spending long days on your feet on wet and muddy terrain is essential, a supportive sole, like the Cross and Grip sole seen on classics like the Chasseur and Vierzonord or the MICHELIN Agri sole seen on our Cérès, is a must.
For gardening and dog walking, where crouching down is part and parcel of the job, our flexible and supple rubber allows for ease of movement. Our boot linings include neoprene, which are comfort-rated to temperatures as low as -15°C to see you through bitterly cold winters, jersey which is lightweight and moisture-wicking to see you through long hot summers, and leather, which moulds to your foot for all year round comfort.
