+ Warm and breathable 
+ Adjustable for wide calves 

When most people think of rubber boots, they think of cheap, poor-fitting boots. However, brands such as Aigle have been designing high quality, stylish wellington boots for quite some time. Aigle’s latest generation of Parcours 2 ISO boots are still traditionally made by hand in France, using natural rubber and to the highest of standards.

There are over 10 different boots in the Parcours range, each with its own unique features. In this review, we focus on the Parcours 2 ISO, which is generally considered the best in the range.

How warmth are Aigle Parcours 2 ISO neoprene lined boots

Anyone who has worn basic rubber boots will tell you they don’t offer much in the way of warmth. If the weather is cold, then your feet will be cold. This isn’t surprising, considering the only thing between feet and the cold is a thin layer of rubber or PVC. These Aigle wellies have a thick 4.5 mm neoprene lining to stop cold feet. This provides excellent insulation and will keep feet warm in sub-zero temperatures. The Neoprene also allows feet to breathe, making them suitable for wearing in winter and summer. 

The boots have an insulated neoprene insole, which helps protect feet from the cold coming up from the ground. This can be especially useful if standing in one spot on a cold day for a prolonged period of time.

These are comfortable boots

The Aigle Parcours 2 ISO boots are super comfortable! We doubt you will find any other boots that are as comfortable.

You can wear these Aigle boots all day and won’t experience any aches or pains. This mainly comes down to the excellent ankle support provided by the boots and the ‘anti-fatigue’ sole.

Aigle’s ‘anti-fatigue’ sole consists of 3 density natural rubber sole, which provides cushioning and absorbs shock. This reduces stress on the body when moving. This means that when you walk in these boots, you’ll have a spring in your step!

Traction and grip

Turning the Aigle Parcours 2 ISO wellington boots upside down, you will see good deep treads designed to give traction from all angles. The boots are capable of providing a secure grip on most surfaces. The only surface we found that traction wasn’t particularly good was hard, smooth surfaces, such as ice. But, to be fair, there probably aren’t many boots that could provide good traction on this type of surface.

Classic looking boots

The Parcours 2 ISO boots come in 4 different colours: bronze, brun (brown), noir (black) and kaki (green), and the finish is matt but with a slight shine. It’s not the most exciting range of colours.

The boots are unisex, meaning they are not explicitly styled for men or women.

These factors clearly indicate that these boots have not been designed as a fashion wellie, for walking down the high street on a rainy day. They are very much a practical wellington boot.

There’s a buckle at the top of the boot, which, unlike many boots is not just there for show, it actually adjusts the gusset to fit the leg more comfortably. Thanks to this adjustment these wellies are suitable for wide calves and standard calve sizes.

The boots are beautifully made and look really good, but if you are after something that will make you stick out in a crowd, then these are probably not the boots for you. Take a look at Hunter Original Tall boots review if you are after something a bit more high street-friendly.

Parcours 2 ISO Boots Review: Conclusion

As you might have gathered from our review, we love the Aigle Parcours 2 ISO boots. They are very well made and if you buy a pair, expect to still be wearing them in 10 years times.

They might be more expensive than other boots on the market, but they’re worth it. Unlike some brands, we don’t feel that you’re paying for the brand name but the actual quality of the boots. 

The only other wellington boots that we’ve reviewed comparable to these Aigle boots are the Le Chameau Vierzonord, which are also a top-quality French brand of rubber boots.

I've been working with rubber boots (aka rain boots, wellies) in one way or another, since 2009. So, i've seen a lot of wellington boots in my time. I create most of the content for the website, which i hope you find useful.
