    Product feature
    1. Crosscontact sole
      The sole design is the product of a lengthy research and development process conducted in our laboratories, combined with a special rubber formulation to optimise grip and traction. Given the range of different needs, we are always seeking the best compromise for walking on both wet and dry terrain.
    2. Waterproofing test
      Footwear waterproofing test: these boots, which have been tested in the laboratory and the field, have a breathable, waterproof membrane for optimum protection in the rain. First, the boot is immersed in water with pressurised air inside to check that no bubbles form on the surface. 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.
    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 Mid waterproof boot passed the test involving 4000 flexes.
    4. Prolonging the waterproof properties
      A shoe's waterproofing is often undermined by water getting in from the top of the shoe. To keep your feet dry for longer, we recommend wearing waterproof gaiters or mini-gaiters to protect the top part of the boots and prevent water, pebbles, sand, etc. from getting inside. To restore the original water repellent properties and prevent staining the outer surface, spray with a waterproof spray several times per year.
    5. Buying tips
      For hiking, try taking one shoe size up from your usual to ensure optimum comfort when going downhill and to prevent your toes from hitting the toe box. Tip: nails must be cut short, and before descending, check that the laces stop the foot from slipping forward to the front of the boot.
    6. What shoe size should I choose?
      For hiking, try taking one shoe size up from your usual to ensure optimum comfort when going downhill and to prevent your toes from hitting the toe box. Tip: before any descent, make sure that your toe nails are clipped and that your laces are tightened so that your feet cannot slide forwards in the boot.
    7. Field test
      All our boots are tested in real-life conditions by testers who are representative of the target customer to ensure that they fit properly and are comfortable in use. Our Missions Tests link the product manager up with people who are not affiliated to Quechua to test, develop and approve the products.
    8. Laboratory Testing
      Other laboratory tests are also conducted to pass the following: tearing resistance of the eyelets and straps, resistance of adhesives, toxicology, UV resistance, to abrasion of the outsole and upper components, accelerated ageing.

    • Comfortable and waterproof

      Paul (United Kingdom)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Used these for the first time for hiking in Newfoundland and found them to be very comfortable and dry.
    • Forclaz 100 Men's hiking boots

      Frank (United Kingdom)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      The first thing I noticed is that the boots are lighter than I expected. The fit is just right for me and the boots were comfortable from the start. They are very easy to put on and remove and the laces stay tied. In the month or so that I have had them, they have let in no water and my feet have been completely dry.
    • Good boots

      MARK (United Kingdom)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Really well made, comfortable and warm boots. Would definitely recommend
    • First class

      Don (United Kingdom)
      Used for 7 to 12 months
      Usually spend £140 on my boots these cost only £40. They have been used in Scotland, the Peak District and France. Temperature range -10 to + 39 Celsius. Never leaked always comfortable very breathable. Bought two more pairs to keep in stock, when I eventually wear first pair out.
    • Laces

      Robert (United Kingdom)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      User reported boots very comfortable to wear. The only drawback is the fact that the laces will not stay tied even with double knots. I take this to be the effect of the man made material the laces are made of and the minute vibrations causes when the foot hits the ground.
