Oh Le Chameau!

To get you super prepared for the wet weather Golden Boot have gone on location in Kent to showcase two lines of wellington boots from Le Chameau. We’d like to add a special thank you to Poppy the Springer Spaniel for sitting very still!

It all started in 1927, with an aim to provide customers with a rubber boot hardy enough to withstand varying terrain from the deepest countryside to the vastest ocean. Alongside elegance and style, Le Chameau boots certainly provide the durability and sure-footed traction desired from an outdoor boot.




Le Chameau Giverny Jersey £100 This is a neat and beautifully designed boot available from Golden Boot in a deep shade of cherry. Ideal for everyday use it has a comfortable jersey lining and a dual density cross-sole for added traction and stability.

Le Chameau Vierzonord Lady £170 This is an iconic field and country boot. The 3mm neoprene lining will keep feet snug and provide extra comfort on long days in the great outdoors. They feature a waterproof gusset with adjustable strap and a reinforced shank for extra stability.

When it comes to looking after your Le Chameau wellington boots always use a boot jack to remove them. In the factory Le Chameau boots are treated to a layer of protective wax, this will help protect the natural rubber and prevent bleaching from the sun. When your boots are really dirty wash them with soapy water, allow them to dry and then give them a liberal coating with the Le Chameau care sponge.

Ecco Terra VG walking boot

Today Ed is talking about the Ecco Terra VG walking boot, one of our best selling mens walking boots from Ecco.

As with all of the Ecco walking boots, Ecco Terra VG has a tough, durable, injection moulded sole unit which offers great grip and is completely integral to the upper.
The sole has Ecco’s patented receptor technology which is a system 3 of springs supporting the natural arches; it aids natural walking dynamics of the foot.

The upper is made from Yak leather which is quoted to be 3 times stronger than normal cow hide. The upper is Goretex lined which makes it 100% waterproof guaranteed. Goretex membrane also acts as an insulator, which is great going into the winter months.

Removable anti-bacterial sole unit which can be washed or replaced. This also allows you to use custom othotics instead of the standard insole, and without sacrificing the fit.

Well padded tongue and topline for secure and comfortable fit. The boot also features a nice rubber tug to for easy on and off.

Red and black laces are supplied allowing you to customise the look of the boot.

Wear with a thin sock for best performance and breathability.

Ecco Terra VG is really easy to look after. Goretex actually recommend that the less you do to the shoes the better. Just use warm soapy water to clean the upper, rinse and let it dry naturally. To nourish the leather, use the leather conditioner and follow instructions supplied on the reverse of the tube.
