Going to take the plunge and get myself some decent wellys for walking / trekking through mud! I currently wear cheap, cold, leaky ones but need something warm and comfortable for Hudsons walks getting longer! I heard the parcours iso have the best reviews but heard a lot of people saying the are quite heavy and they are more suites to men than woman? Thats why i am thinking of the aigle aiglentine fur. I have short riding boots I wear in summer so these will mainly be for winter months or really wet days!

Also are the sizes good? For instance im usually a 6 so will a 6 be okay, there are no shops near me that sell them so will need to order online.

Thanks :)

I have Parcours and don't find them too heavy. They are great during the autumn, winter and spring but too warm for summer.

The sizing is good but when I replace mine I will go for the next size up as when my feet are warm they can be tricky to pull off. But that's neoprene you should be fine with fur!

How long have you had the aigletines for? Are the soles still good / good grip as they are not as thick as the parcours?

I think I might get them from amazon as seem to be cheaper!

I have had mine for four months - so not long.

But I have worn them a LOT!! Every day at the moment. The grip is very good and they are super comfortable. I got half a size up so they are fine both with thick double socks or thin single socks in the summer. I really shopped around on Amazon and got them for £46 - which is more than I have ever paid for wellies but felt like a real bargain when I started using them.

I was curious as to what (if any) animal fur is in the fur lined boots & am sure some would want to know.....perhaps to make a more informed purchase choice if so motivated.

Good news is the boots mentioned are marketed as lined with FAUX fur
as in this link . So thumbs up to Aigle assuming this info is correct, ( no reason to believe otherwise).

I have actually just been reading your post Coaster about the ugg boots and was just thinking the exact same thing about the fur so thank you for answering before I asked :)

Not a problem & glad this has helped.

Anyone who wants to see my thread on alleged cruel fur trading associated with FAKE UGG boots can see it by searching my posts, ( but please read my warnings re content in the video link contained within).

I have Aigle parcours and don't find them heavy at all, I live in them :D

I don't have the ISO ones though as they are too hot in the Summer.

Feeling slightly faint after ordering some Parcours Iso wellies. Unfortunately being blessed with the slightly chunkier calf means the cheaper wellies split after about a month. So my argument to my husband will be that having gone through 4 pairs of boots since having Poppy, it'll be a good investment :wink: (Is it wrong to be so excited about wellies?)

No, us dog walkers spend so much time wearing our willies that a good pair is essential (that flipping spell checker is at it again! it always changes wellies to willies).

I got really excited about my lovely Muck Boots and recently paid £20 to have them re-soled and re-heeled because I couldn't bear to throw them away.

I know the price of good boots is high but if they last a long time then it is worth it - just divide the cost by the number of times you wear them and the result is pennies.

I would love some Aigles but I will wait until I can try before I buy, I have such a problem getting a good fit in boots that I wouldn't like to risk having to return them.

I intend to get my moneys worth out of them - at that price I'll be wearing them constantly (work, shopping, evening out :lol: )

I almost bought muck boots instead, but was worried about them stretching around my legs when tucking in trousers.

Who knew buying wellies would be so difficult! I think I am going to go for the aigletines as I cant justify paying double the price for the parcours just after christmas, if these fair me well then may go for the parcours next time but now I cant decide on with or without the fur!

We have had a rather warm winter which is why i am thinking of the without and just thick socks, but im remembering 2 years ago when I was about in tears as my feet were that cold!

I like the fact that I can regulate the temperature by thickness and quantity of socks. They are good for soggy summers too.

Mind you I am super fussy about temperature and even take two hats on walks then I can chose which one suits the weather - if very cold I wear both!

:roll:
