Hi and welcome to Bootkidz.co.uk - a small design company based in London. This page has links to Aigle rubber boots designed in France.
Aigle WelliesAigle is a famous brand of French boots. L'Aigle means 'The Eagle' in English.
Aigle has a long history of boot manufacture. The industrious Hiram Hutchinson established the first Aigle factory, then known as 'Compagnie du Caoutchouc Souple' (Flexible Rubber Company) in France in 1853 using the patent he purchased from Charles Goodyear the previous year - see the history of the Wellington Boot for more detail.
At first the company made rubber shoes and boots to replace wooden shoes used by the Dutch field workers of the 1800's. Later Aigle would produce some of the worlds finest rubber boots.
Aigle is one of the oldest rubber boot manufacture in the world - but only 4 years older than the North British Rubber Company which became Hunter Ltd - the famous British rubber boot brand.
