I received my boots yesterday and I love them! I decided on the red ones. Wore them today, and received numerous compliments. I ordered a full size down based on other reviews, and they fit. As previous reviews the leg circumference of the boots is much narrower than other boots. If you have large/muscular calves, these boots will not work. I loved them because I do not have any excess room in the calves which I have with most other boots. I also have a very narrow foot. I read reviews that said this particular boot ran narrow; however, I did not find that to be the case. To compensate for the extra foot room, I decided to add a pair of shearling insoles (which I purchased from Zappos in the past). Not only are the boots now a perfect fit, my feet were warm all day! I have 2 pair of Hunter boots, and I like these much better! Love Zappos!

Great boots. Fits true to size, though a little clunky. I've worn them in heavy snow and cold temperatures and have been fine.

I was so excited to get these, as I have to look far and wide for a narrow-ish boot. I was hoping these would work for my "chicken ankles", but alas, not to be. I ordered a 41 (size 8), knowing that they run large. I normally wear an 8.5 or 9.0 in a running shoe. This thing was still too large -- pretty sloppy, actually. The circumference of the shaft itself was nice and small around my calf...something you rarely see in boots these days (wide shaft seems to be the norm). The foot bed itself seemed a bit more narrow, but there was way too much room on top of my toes/foot/ankle, if that makes sense. I could've put another foot down in there. Tapers up nicely to a pretty small ankle area, so not sure why the top of the foot needs to be so roomy? Again, I have narrow feet and the aforementioned chicken leg, so maybe just me. Didn't love the lining, either. Seemed a bit skimpy for a pricier boot. Sad face. Sending back.

I tried both the standard Le Chameau Vierzon and the fur lined. I found the fur lined a bit tighter...probably until the fur mats down a bit. But the look was also bulkier. I feel I'd rather wear a good wool sock when needed in the standard wellie than own the fur lined one. Other than that, they are well made and beautiful. A bit tall for my legs as I am only 5'2" and found them hitting at my knee when standing. The circumference of the shaft is surprisingly generous. I have wider calves and were able to fit a pair of skinny jeans tucked in.

The Le Chameau Vierzon is a beautiful boot. Well made and substantial. Heads above Hunter, in my opinion. Unfortunately, they didn't work out for me. I'm only 5'2" and they were much to tall... hitting the bottom of my knee when standing. Could they have worked? Sure. But I also tried the Aigle Aiglentine which fit me better overall. I'd also like to address the width of the shaft. I have calves on the wider side. The original Hunters don't fit me...however, the Le Chameau's did...even with a pair of skinny jeans tucked in. Maybe I could have gotten a straight leg jean into them too but I didn't try. So, overall it's a lovely, comfortable boot especially if your legs are longer than mine.

Great boot, but order a half a size down if your a guy. The leather is gorgeous, and the boot very well made. My last pair of boots were Hunters I bought back in the early 90s. They got lost or stolen over a few moves back in the UK, so this was the first time I actually got round to buying a new pair of Welly's. After Hunter went to China, they were no longer an option. Hand made in France... yes please. And Duchess of Kent has a pair also, so you will be in good company.

My husband and I have his and hers. LOVE them really high quality, comfortable and warm, yet I don't think it is to warm for all year round. I for one and my husband who is the one that really found the neoprene "nord" model feel this is the only way to go... WE thought we wanted Hunters, but based on the reputation the company has since not being produced in the UK but China. well lest say it is poor. Yes, the Hunters are really cute from a female point of view :) But we wanted more than "cute" we wanted the real thing, real hard core "wellies" you can rely on to get the job done and keep your feet dry. And as far as a fashion statement, well if one cares what the Prince and Dutchess of Cambridge wears, (and lots of people do) it is not hunters, it is Le Chameau :) In terms of size I got a European size 41 and I am normally a 9 1/2 My husband got a size 44 and is normally a size 11.

Aigle Aiglentine versus Le Chameau Vierzon Lady. Although both look like they are very high quality, Le Chameau wins on style, fit, and comfort. I usually wear a 9 or 9½ in regular shoes, 10 in running shoes. I have slim legs with fairly muscular calves. The size 40 were a perfect fit. I think the size chart is off as I believe 40 is equivalent to 9-9½ and not 8. The Aigles were too loose in the ankle and calf and my foot slipped out as I walked. The Le Chameaus fit like a glove. While they required a little tugging to take off, they did not slip or feel loose as I walked.

These boots are a replacement for a pair of Lady Northampton rubber riding-style boots that I've had since 1989, and I expect to have these "camels" (chameau means camel in French) at least that long. I normally wear size 7.5AA and have a hard time finding shoes and boots in the width I need. These boots, needing no elastic gore or buckle for calf adjustment, look sleek and elegant compared to most waterproof boots, and will fit well if you order a smaller size than you usually wear. Based on earlier reviews, I was going to order size 37, but at the last moment, on a hunch, I went another size down to 36, and I'm glad I did. Even the standard medium width feels OK. I put in an arch insert for a little more support, and I'm good to go! Very, very satisified!

I wear a size 8.5 dress shoe (Boss, Edmonds, Ferragamo). I got these in size 9 and heavy wool socks make up the difference nicely. Very comfortable and very warm.

Good looking boots, well constructed. Obviously high quality. They are extremely comfortable. They are a little big for the size, but I like to wear woolen socks in that type of boot. Very happy with this purchase.

Great boots, appear to be very solid, and just the right height that I was looking for...unfortunately they are far too tight in the calf area and I had to return them. (The online specs said they are 18" in the calf, and I measured my calves at 17", but they did not fit.) This seems to be a common problem with Wellies, so I will have to keep looking for a suitable pair.

Great boots, very comfortable. I'm normally a size 8. The 8 was very large on me so I exchanged it for a 7.5. I probably could have even gone with a 7 if I wore normal weight (not thick) socks. Zappos was lightning-fast with delivery and exchange, as usual.

The boots look great and they are very comfortable. However, the width from the knee to the heel is too narrow so unless you are wearing skinny jeans, etc. you will not have enough room to wear them outside your pants. Order 1/2 size up if you want a bit more room for socks. Nice tread. Wonderful return service from Zappos when I needed to switch.

Worth the money! These are definitely English Country Side boots. I could walk miles in them, in fact I do! They are perfect for cleaning out the barn, taking a muddy hike with the dog and kids or looking stylish while running around town in the rain. I love love love these boots. They are super comfortable! Fit like a shoe not a clunky rain boot. I have a narrow foot and these fit very well. They are a bit hard to get off at first - but now I have the hang of it. I have them in Red and love them.

I am looking for the perfect pair of Wellies. I like the look of Hunter, but because they are no longer made in the UK but China, their quality has gone to crap. Le Chameau is it, it is just a matter of which one. I have decided on Le Chameau Womens VierzoNord Rain Boots "Nord" being the key bc they are warmer but not with fur but neoprene. so good for Cold and rain. Kate the Dutchess wears Le Chameau, and I think she has the finger on the pulse as to what is good :)

Because Le Chameau boots are all individually handcrafted, they do not always match exactly. For example; with the first pair I purchased the labels were off from each other by an inch. And one strap was longer than the other. I loved the boots quality, but I couldn't live with such discrepancies/asymmetry. Zappos was incredibly helpful by sending me another pair so that I could determine which one I would keep. Great service! I also would advise going a size smaller than normal. I typically wear a 6, and I ordered a 5. Comfortable fit.

I use rain boots on a pretty much daily basis, as I live in a tidal flooding zone. I've loved my Hunters for a decade, but it was time for new boots. I also have very narrow feet with a slightly slim calf. I chose these over the newest "slim" Hunters because those have a zipper and I figured that they'd be vulnerable to leaks or zipper rust if the boot was fully submerged. I'm so glad I made the leap to Le Chameau. It's a very nicely made boot...extremely supple rubber, great treads, narrow fit (so my feet don't slop around like I'm wearing my dad's boots or something), and surprisingly warm for not being lined with an insulating material. I've been wearing these as my snow boots since they sip on so easily and I've made it comfortably through mile-long walks in the woods in teen temps. I would highly recommend these boots for a high level of practicality and a very flattering style. Note, if you have a wide foot, these probably aren't the best choice for you. If you find most rain boots a little spacious, however, these will probably be a great discovery. They're pricey, but well worth it for so many reasons. I'm usually an 8, but ordered a 7.5 based on other reviews. They fit perfectly.

These boots are awesome! Beat out the competition - Hunters brand - by a mile. I have three pair & love them all. One caveat: the strap & buckle aren't as long-lasting as the rest of the boots. Don't worry. Your shoe repairman can replace the plastic buckle with a metal one & hot-glue a stronger strap on. Great support & comfort.

I bought these for my husband to replace another pair that had worn out. This was a new brand for him and he absolutely loves them. They were true to size and he says they are warm and comfortable, he loves them. Worth the price.
