Making waterproofing last longerA shoe's waterproofing is often undermined by water getting in from the top of the shoe. Using waterproof gaiters or mini gaiters is therefore recommended to keep your feet dry for longer by protecting the top part of your shoes and prevent water from getting in as well as pebbles, sand, etc. Use of a re-waterproofing spray is recommended several times per year. This will help your shoes recover their original water repellent qualities and combat outer stains.
Waterproofing testFootwear waterproofing test: Tested both in the lab and real-world usage, NOVADRY®-equipped footwear guarantees optimum waterproofing and breathability. First, the shoe is immersed in water while internal air pressure is applied to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the footwear. Next, shoes are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking and half immersed in water so we can test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
Waterproofing levelDuring the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexes (around 2 hours of walking), 4000 flexes (around 4 hours of walking) and 8000 flexes (around 8 hours of walking). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry. Arpenaz 100 Novadry shoes are waterproof for 2000 flexes.
Waterproofing vs BreathabilityA shoe with a waterproof and breathable membrane will generally be much less breathable than a shoe without a membrane. It is important to be aware of this if breathability is important to you.

not good in Monsoon specially costel belt10/10/2016Response of the brandHi Nitin,
Thanks you for sharing your review on the Arpenaz 100 hiking shoes.
The Arpenaz range of products is designed for lowland use on easy paths.
For trekking in Western Ghats, I suggest the Forclaz range of footwear which is designed for mountains.
Though not waterproof, the Forclaz 500 Fresh is ideal for all day hiking in hot weather on technical terrain with water crossing.
Thanks to it's perforated drainage feature on the sole and the mesh upper the shoe dries the quickest.
Please find the link below for more information on Forclaz 500 Fresh.
I am at your disposal in case you have more doubts.
Thanks and Regards,

Used for Trekking14/09/2016shape , Colour , Materiallaces , Coushion , inflate after useResponse of the brandHello Amit Sharma,
Thanks for your feedback on the Arpenaz 100 hiking shoes. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.
To give you a technical insight on the Arpenaz 100 shoes, these shoes are meant for occasional hiking on lowlands . They come without a mid sole as the terrain these shoes are used on does not demand one and strictly not recommended for trekking.
I would request you kindly to visit any of our store closer to you and ask for an exchange. If your requirement is a shoe for trekking I would request you to go for a model from the Forclaz series of Quechua(Forclaz 100, Forclaz 500 or Forclaz 600).
I stay available if you need any further assistance.
