Aigle Wellies Put to the Test at Glastonbury

Aigle festival wellies - Aigle Victorine


#RockYourWellies Festival Goer Chloe Graham Tests a pair of Aigle Wellies

Aigle Ladies Victorine Wellies - Aubergine -  Aigle "welly" and truly tested at Glastonbury Festival, June 2014!  


Wellies are essential for any festival, and this year at Glastonbury was no exception. All weathers were thrown our way at Worthy Farm.  First were the torrential rain and thunder storms.  The Aigles shape of being quite fitted around your lower leg meant they kept most of the rain from running down my legs into my wellies and kept my feet warm and dry.  


Next test was mud.  The mud started off as very sloppy, so grip was essential.  The wellies had good treads on them and were hard wearing and robust.  The mud got progressively thicker towards the end of the weekend, so suction into the mud became the next challenge.  The wellies were a very good fit, and were snug around my ankles so did not get sucked into the mud and I lose a welly!   I would say that these wellies come up a little small, so go for a slightly bigger size – I am a 5.5 but had a size 6 that fit very well.


Sunshine – surprisingly, there was sunshine and it got pretty warm as well at the weekend.  I don’t think any welly is well suited to hot weather but these were light and comfortable and I was happy to wear them for the entire period.


You walk many miles at Glastonbury, and are on your feet nearly all day and night.  They had comfy soles and fit really well – perhaps slightly tricky to take off after a long day?  They do have wings on the back to help put them back on though!


I really like the colours of the Aigle wellies, they are different and fun but not overtly garish, so can be taken to a festival and stand out or do proper work and fit right in.


Overall, my experience welly testing the ‘Aigles’ was very enjoyable and positive and I have no complaints.   They kept my feet warm, dry, comfortable and stylish for the whole week.  I use them all the time at home, for walking the dogs/riding and any time I'm outside and would recommend getting a pair!
