Aigle wellington boots are the rigeur de jour on many an adventurous French child’s foot. These simple wellingtons, or ‘bottes caoutchouc,’ are hugely successful. The brand, which was formed by Hiram Hutchinson and Charles Goodyear back in 1853, made dressing in rubber boots an overnight success, when the designers brought their new rubber boots from America to French farms. The reputation of the brand grew and expanded, bringing with it a legion of followers.
Aigle’s success is still apparent today in the sheer quantity of boots you see splashing in puddles all over the world. The boots are identified by clean, crisp lines and the brand’s simple, unmistakeable emblem representing the years of history behind every boot. Aigle’s high production standard, coupled with the affordable price point, has ensured that the brand reigns high as the go- to for waterproof wear that transcends seasons. Brave the elements with their top-quality outerwear, from parkas down to socks, while evoking a classic marine theme with a robust colour palette from brown to mustard to red.
Aigle will bring a little of the spirit of Paddington Bear into your little puddle-jumpers’ life! For more information or to shop the style visit Aigle Online.
