In my neck of the woods, it has been raining enough today that I have been contemplating building an ark – any thoughts of shooting have had me checking that my boots are ready for the season. So it was fairly appropriate that this press release dropped in my mailbox this afternoon.

Le Chameau have introduced an additional model for 2011 – a remake of their lovely Jameson boot, which now features a full length YKK Zip for easy access and removal. The zip has allowed Le Chameau to create a more fitted design around the ankle and lower leg. Manufactured using the same combination of full grain and nubuck leather as the standard Jameson, this zipped version has a Gore-Tex® lining to ensure waterproofness and the Razzia sole unit provides unparalleled grip and comfort.

I love the look of these – and le Chameau boots are big favourite of one member of  the ShootClay team who wears them in the field and on the more weatherbeaten clay grounds.

The Jameson ZIP GTX boots are available from Le Chameau stockists. To locate a local stockist, visit or contact LLC Ltd (UK distributor) on 01489 557600.
