'Choosing The Right Pair of Boots' Guide

General

  • Rubber, from rubber tree plantations, has remarkable natural properties. By using rubber rather than 100% synthetic materials, our master rubber makers at Aigle hand make, in more than 60 stages, boots that last and combine flexibility with excellent comfort. Rubber boots are more robust and durable and have a high resistance to wear and tear and ripping, so you can pass them down through the generations.

    Products made from plastic, derived from petroleum, will not provide you with the same level of comfort nor the same amount of flexibility when walking and will become much more brittle over time.

  • Choosing the right pair of rubber boots depends on what you wish to use them for.

    If you are looking for the latest contemporary design in rubber boots, that's in the Lifestyle category. If you need a pair of boots for a particular activity: hunting (country walks), fishing, or gardening boots, you'll find what you are looking for in our specialist categories.

  • Always make sure there is space in between your toes and your rubber boots. It is normal for your heel to lift up slightly when walking but it should not come away completely. You shouldn't feel as though your boots are going to come off. In European sizes, we recommend that you round up to the larger size. For example, if you are a size 7.5, we would recommend a size 38 boot. See size table attached.

  • Rubber has remarkable natural properties but there is a limit to how much it stretches. A pair of boots that is too close-fitting will not be pleasant to wear, it is important to check before ordering. To calculate the circumference of your calf, sit down on a chair, place your foot flat on the ground with your knee bent at a 90° angle. Using a tape measure, measure the widest part of your calf without pulling on the tape. We recommend that you measure both calves. If there is a big difference, use the larger measurement.

    Now that you know the circumference of your calf, you need to think about how you are going to wear your boots. If, for example, you want to push your pants into your pair of boots, you need to add the additional width of your garment and a 0.5cm safety margin.

    You can check the measurements of each boot when you click on a particular boot. There will be a tab for Measurement and another for Composition.

  • Each boot has different features. You can see the features of the boots when you click on each boot. There are icons that refer to the different features. The legend is here:

    Grip: specific notching that guarantees outstanding grip in every circumstance.

    Cushion: for a fatigue-free walk, with an impact absorbing cushion, ideal for long hikes.

    Quick dry: specific lining that allows for quick drying to remove humidity once you're home.

    Cold Insulation: insulation for the foot and the leg for outings in cold or humid conditions.

    Temperature regulation: Outlast® materials absorb excessive heat to reproduce it when you need it. See all hunting boot designs with temperature regulation.

    Wide calf: Adjustable gusset that allows you to adjust your boots to fit your calves.

    Wider feet: you can choose the width of the foot to suit your shape: normal feet or wide feet.
