    Product feature
    1. CrossContact sole:
      Lengthy research into the design of the sole at the Essensole laboratories, combined with a special rubber formulation optimise grip on rocky terrain.
    2. 360° System:
      Our exclusive system uses a strap that goes under your instep. Tightening your laces also tightens the strap, bringing you better instep support without affecting comfort. Since the angle of the strap is aligned with the laces, there are no uncomfortable hard pressure points. This provides unrivalled support and therefore greater precision and safety in challenging sections.
    3. X stab technology:
      TPU part (rigid plastic) stabilises the heel. This insert is embedded into the compression-moulded EVA at the heel thereby stabilising and keeping it in position at the back of the shoe. The insert extends out at the sides so that it is covered by the 360° System strap, gently merging with the rest of the shoe at the forefoot. It is used to brace the foot and, along with the injection-moulded EVA in the front sole, provides excellent push off.
    4. Cushioning:
      Two types of materials have been used to provide an optimised cushioning / weight ratio. The heel (the part of your foot that needs the most cushioning) is made of compressed EVA. This provides long-lasting cushioning over time whilst minimising the thickness of the shoe. The front of the shoe is made of injected EVA; this light and bouncy material allows you to push off effectively.
    5. Footwear waterproofing test.
      Footwear waterproofing test: tested in the laboratory and in use, footwear fitted with a waterproof, breathable membrane afford optimum protection from the rain. 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.
    6. 3 levels of waterproofing.
      During 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.
    7. Shoe waterproofing level.
      The Forclaz 700 boot is waterproof for 8000 flexes.
    8. Buying tips
      Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models or sizes if necessary. Check two comfort points: the base of the heel and the front part of the foot going down. Avoid all pressure points when trying them on. Don't hesitate to walk around the store. Gradually start using you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.
    9. What size should I choose?
      For hiking, take the size above your usual shoe size to ensure optimum comfort when travelling downhill and to prevent your from hitting the tips of the shoes. Tip: keep your toenails short and check that your laces stop your foot from sliding to the front of the shoes before you start downhill.
