Hutchison had obtained a license in 1850 for fellow-American Charles Goodyear's patented vulcanization process. He emigrated to France where he applied the new process to the production of Wellington boots and then raincoats. In the 20th century the company expanded into the production of accessories for the motor industry and, from the 1950s, sports shoes.
In 1967 the company, by now named Aigle, moved manufacturing to Ingrandes, near Châtellerault, on a 30 hectare site where around 10,000 pairs of shoes are produced annually.
Beginning in 2000 the company expanded into Japan and the United States. In 2006 there were 131 stores worldwide, of which 61 were in France, 14 elsewhere in Europe, and 56 in Asia. Gross sales for the 2005 fiscal year were around 120 million euros.
In 2005 majority ownership of the company was purchased by Swiss group Maus Frères.
The 15th of November 2008 saw the Inauguration of the first Aigle store in North America. Located in Halifax, Nova Scotia the shop features about 80% of the textile and footwear line of the brand, as well as 100% of the brand’s famous foul weather protective sailing gear and boots.

Aigle is a French brand of mostly country clothing that is exceptional. They are best known in European shooting circles for their calfskin lined wellingtons as pictured below. I can attest to the quality and comfort!!!
Kevin Spacey did an interview about them releasing it all at once so viewers could watch at their own pace, when they want to watch it. Brilliant if you ask me.

My fav pair of sailing boots are Aigle. Absolutely the greatest boots ever.
