This month we are offering our lucky winner the chance to choose his and hers boots from our latest range of Le Chameau Footwear.
Le Chameau boots are extremely popular not only for their looks but for the high quality and performance. We thought it would be nice to explain a little bit of the history of Le Chameau and how they came to be one of the top brands of outdoor footwear available today. In 1927 a little known French agricultural engineer named Claude Chamot, due to the outdoor nature of his profession was hearing a lot of complaints about how uncomfortable their boots were due to the fact they always leaked. This prompted him to start work on designing a new boot made out of natural rubber that would prevent these leaks happening and therefore provide maximum comfort and protection for their bearers. The Le Chameau Story had begun. In 1939 Claude found he just didn’t have enough space in his small workshop at the back of Mrs Chamot’s to satisfy the growing demand of his boots and so he moved into premises at Pont d’Ouilly in Normandy where he was able to produce his boots on a much larger scale. In 1949 he decided to open a new production site in Casablanca, Morocco again to further help with growing demands and it was here, with the help of the creativity of the Moroccan craftsmen that his boots were greatly improved further and the Chamot brand became Le Chameau. Le Chameau boots are produced using the highest quality materials available and the patent manufacturing processes developed by Claude Chamot are still being used today. The Le Chameau Chasseur Boot is now considered the flagship of the Le Chameau range with its luxurious leather interior and full length zip, these boots are as easy to put on as a regular pair of shoes but provide maximum protection when out in the field. Alternatively there is the Le Chameau Jameson Lady Fouree GTX Boot with its Gore-tex® membrane lining for extra warmth and comfort, perfect for those cooler Autumn and Winter days. Visit our competition page now and enter our free competition to be in with a chance to win his and hers Le Chameau boots of your choice.

Investing in a good pair of wellies is a must when snow is on the ground. Walking around in everyday shoes is dangerous and could lead to you falling down. For those of you who own a pair of wellies you’ll know how well they do on the snow, for those of you who don’t you should take a look at those listed below as they could help you out during the bad weather.

Le Chameau Country Vibram Boots – these highly innovative country boots are available in green and in a number of different sizes.
Seeland Allround Rubber Boots Neoprene Lined – wellies aren’t known for keeping your feet warm but these Seeland wellies are lined with neoprene so your feet should feel snug even when the temperature plummets.
