The Traqueur rubber boot is the latest addition to Le Chameau’s shooting range, introducing new innovations, a contemporary look and technical attributes for beaters, pickers up and active shooters who require extra protection. As with all Le Chameau rubber boots, each pair of Traqueur is handcrafted by a single maître bottier, Master Bootmaker.
With double Kevlar® reinforcements to the front and sides, the boot provides 360ᵒ protection against abrasion and improved stability to your foot and ankle. It features a waterproof Riri Aquazip to the rear and a shock-absorbing, insulating, all-terrain Grip sole with reinforced shank for improved arch support and comfort when you are on your feet all day.
Another great feature of this boot is the technical, perforated 100% microfibre OnSteam® lining, which provides all-day comfort due to its thermo-regulating and anti-allergenic properties, as well as its ability to easily absorb and dissipate humidity. The lining is quick-drying, therefore preventing the development of bacteria which cause odour. OnSteam® performance is similar to our leather lining and it is therefore perfect as an all-year round boot and for temperatures to -5ᵒC.
Traqueur is available in classic Vert Chameau green, a stylish Marron Foncé brown and also in Realtree® Max-4 camo pattern.
