Aigle of France rose to fame in 1853 as the first brand to use rubber as the core material in boot manufacture, meaning that farmers could return home from the fields with un-muddied, dry feet – a revelation at that time. The natural rubber mix ensures the boots remain waterproof, comfortable and supple. The rubber parts are brought together on an aluminium last before being volcanised at 140 degrees to give them their final shape. The boots are made entirely by hand by specialists in Ingrandes, France, and with over 150 years’ experience, you can rest assured that the product has been honed to provide the best quality we see today.
The prized Parcours 2 ISO boots come with a neoprene lining, which keeps feet warm during winter and regulates with the body temperature during summer. Modelled on a hunting boot with a hiking concept sole – which includes a 3 density shock absorber – these boots provide incredible support and comfort, which enables the wearer to walk around all day without getting weary feet. Perfect for on the farm, at a festival, or simply out for a walk.
Aigle also supply an extensive range of colourful clothing for men, women and children with a focus on protection from the elements to keep you dry and warm. The clothing, therefore, is entirely practical and of the best possible quality. The bestselling, cosy duck-down quilts, teamed with a fur trimmed hood, have become an iconic Aigle piece, suiting city and country living equally.
