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 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.

Hunter Adjustable Review

This is Jo, she got her Hunter adjustable boots for Christmas and has been really pleased with the gift.

I  wanted a pair of Hunters for Christmas as I wear wellingtons a lot and I wanted a premium quality boot. In the past I settled for cheaper boots but more often than not they ended up letting in water and I have bought so many over the years that in the long run I wish I would have gone for Hunters earlier.

How to Care for your Hunter Wellingtons

Hunter are famous for their colourful glossy rubber wellingtons but you may find that if stored for a long period of time a cloudy, almost dusty finish may occur. This is a natural occurance, it is actually a sign of the best quality latex, it happens when insoluble particles rise to the surface of the boot.

The problem is easily rectified with Hunter UV Tech spray which will help to preserve the colour and flexibilty of your Hunter boots keeping them looking like new.

In this video we have found a particularily cloudy pair of green Hunters to show you the effects of Hunter UV Tech.
