    Product feature
    1. Crosscontact sole
      The design of the sole has been the subject of long research at our laboratories, combined with a specific rubber formulation to offer the best compromise between grip and traction. As requirements are not the same, we automatically look for the best compromise to develop on both soft and dry terrain.
    2. Waterproofing test
      Footwear waterproofing test: laboratory- and field-tested, shoes with a breathable, waterproof membrane ensure you have 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. They are half immersed and then placed on a mechanical arm that simulates walking: we then check that the inside of the shoe remains perfectly dry.
    3. Waterproofing level
      During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexes (around 4 hours of walking), 4000 flexes (around 8 hours of walking) and 8000 flexes (around 16 hours of walking). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.The MH100 waterproof shoe passed the test involving 4000 flexes.
    4. Prolonging waterproofness
      A shoe's waterproofing is often undermined by water getting in from the top of the shoe. Using waterproof gaiters or mini gaiters, it is therefore recommended to keep your feet dry for longer periods 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.
    5. 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. Break your shoes in gradually on your first big hike to mould them to your feet.
    6. What shoe size do I choose?
      For hiking, do try a size about your usual one to ensure optimum comfort when going downhill and to prevent your toes from touching the top of the shoe. Recommendation: Before any descent, make sure your nails are cut and check that your laces are tightened to prevent your foot from sliding forward in the shoe.
    7. Field Test
      All our shoes are tested for comfort and use, by testers who are representative of the people the products are designed for, under identical conditions. Our Field Test Missions team up the product manager with people who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products.
    8. LaboratoryTesting
      Other laboratory tests are also conducted to approve the quality of the following components: tearing eyelets and straps, gluing, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion resistance of outsole and upper components, accelerated ageing.

      18 months previous I bought a similar style, wore them nearly every day and they only just fell apart. The longest any shoes have lasted. So I bought another pair
    • Super walking shoes

      Please keep making these in navy blue. Great walking shoes and comfortable to wear all day long, day after day. They grip well even in the wet. They absorb shocks very well and you can walk over rocks and bumps and hardly feel the bumps (in a good way). They look good in the city (the blue look a little like casual trainers) and make a great shoe for pounding across urban areas.

      They seem moderately waterproof. They also wash well if needed (very gentle cool wash).

      I’m on my second blue pair (and owned the red ones in the past).
    • Excellent VFM

      Used for More than 2 years
      I have 2 pairs bought in 2016/17. I walk about 20 miles a week on hilly roads and rough grassland and wear them when doing DIY, gardening etc. Hard wearing soles, comfortable uppers, good balance between stability and weight. I tend to pronate and never had any pain with these. Only caveat is waterproof membrane isn't really waterproof but I'm not bothered about that. I've had Merrell GTX and Scarpa Mojito but they cost £100-120! VFM, these are excellent! Of course, YMMV!
