Le Chameau – The Secrets Behind the Brand

Le Chameau – The Secrets Behind the Brand

By -

Some brands command a loyalty usually reserved for close friends and family. One of them is French company, Le Chameau, makers of the world’s best Wellingtons.

 

Devoted is perhaps too strong a word to describe how Le Chameau wearers feel about the makers of their boots – we are after all talking about vulcanised rubber so we’ll try to keep our descriptions of emotional responses to Le Chameau’s Wellington boots credible. But in the world of wellies Le Chameau command a trust and following other brands can only ever dream of.

 

 

Le Chameau wellies are expertly made. In fact crafted is more accurate, given the level of exquisite detail the makers go to, to ensure their boots are waterproof, durable and comfortable. So much so that once worn, wellie wearers never look back.

 

Why Le Chameau?

 

Why are Le Chameau so much better than other wellies? Can one Wellington boot really be so different from another? And are they really worth the extra?

 

The easy answer to the first two questions is yes and the best way to explain this is to walk you through the features– to see exactly how much boot bang you get for your buck.

 

Or you could watch the video above. But beware rubber is notoriously kinky….and you know, these guys are French……
