Le ChameauGone are the days when wellington boots were green, baggy, uncomfortable and pretty nondescript – a necessity for farmers and dog walkers during the dreary days of winter.

These days, wellies are the latest thing for fashion footwear enthusiasts, worn by celebrities, royalty and those of us who want to look good in rubber, from the calf down. Natural rubber that is. The best wellies combine function with design, and Tredders has a great selection of the finest wellington boot manufacturers on the market; leading brands that add a little chic and fun to your wardrobe…

Aigle is a French footwear brand that crafts high quality wellingtons and contemporary boots with an emphasis on durability, functionality and fashion. Aigle was established in the Loire in 1863 by the American Hiram Hutchinson, is credited with dressing Parisians in the roaring 20s, and creating cutting edge sports and walking footwear. Aigle has moved with the times throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, offering contemporary boots for the outdoor enthusiast.

Hunter Boots is the preferred wellington boot for welly lovers who like to work and play hard – and Hunter has a great range of boots to suit welly wearers all over the world – from the Royal Family to festival-goers, and working farmers to landed gentry alike. Hunter Boots was established in Edinburgh (1856) and Hunter's rich history includes supplying over a million boots to soldiers in the trenches of WWI, as well as holding a Royal Warrant for supplying waterproof footwear to HM The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.

Le Chameau has been hand making their premium quality natural rubber boots for over 80 years in northern France. Steeped in tradition, yet at the forefront of technology, Le Chameau footwear is synonymous with excellence in materials, design and craftsmanship. It takes 9 months of intense training to become a Chameau boot-maker. Nine months to acquire the unique skills, which have been passed down through generations, from master to apprentice, so that the wearer has the assurance of a boot handmade with the same care and craftsmanship, down the generations. No wonder then that Le Chameau has become the choice wellington for the Duchess of Cambridge, who is often seen wearing them out and about at various functions.
