    Do you ever head out in strappy sandals on a sunny day, only to be forced to slosh (bare-toed, eek!) through floodwater when caught in a sudden downpour? And then, on the days you dress for stormy weather, the sun comes out and you end up feeling ridiculous? What’s a girl to do?

    French outdoor lifestyle brand Aigle, known for their rubber boots handmade by master rubber craftsmen in France since 1853, reveals a fresh new take on their iconic rainboots. Say hello to Macadames, the rebellious new line styled after leather boots. Coined “The Wild Boots,” these bad-ass beauties feature edgy details like detachable ankle straps and matte metal buckles, as well as a discreet notched sole, patterned welt, and outer reinforcements.

    Choose from three cool styles: the classic Macadames, a high boot (P11,990), the Macadames Mid (P10,990), and the Macadames Low (P8,990). Wear them with everything from miniskirts and leggings, to skinny jeans and flirty dresses to bring a little bit of Parisian chic and a little bit of rock and roll to your everyday look! “Macadames means someone who dares to live life on the edge, someone who dares to be different but still really values high quality,” shared Danica Ignacio, brand associate of Aigle Philippines, during the press launch held recently.

    Built to last, each pair goes through rigorous testing for waterproofing, abrasion, grip, and wear-and-tear, and is handcrafted by artisans who have mastered all the 60 steps of boot manufacturing. Unlike some other boots that are made of PVC, Ignacio tipped us off that Aigle boots are made from 100% rubber. “Aigle is unique in that it’s both an outdoor and a lifestyle brand, and their products are known for their quality, durability, and style,” says Ignacio. “Aigle is always coming up with new styles that embody the classic Aigle spirit of freedom, adventure, excitement, and Frenchness, and the Macadames is the perfect addition to the current Aigle lineup with its edgier, more rugged look.”

    If the edgy look isn’t your thing, Aigle also features a lovely array of rainboots (we’re crushing on the printed styles!), including boots for kids and men.


    The Macadames are now available at Aigle, Uptown Mall, The Podium, and Vertis North. For more info, follow @AiglePh on Instagram
