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.

  • Excellent value

    Nicholas (United Kingdom)
    Used for 2 to 8 weeks
    Really impressed with these boots. Was initially a little apprehensive not buying high-end as I was doing a 5 day hike in mountainous terrain. They performed brilliantly; feet were kept dry from torrential rain one day and on hot sunny day they were breathed well. I've had really expensive boots in the past that haven't been as comfortable.
  • Comfortable and waterproof

    Used these for the first time for hiking in Newfoundland and found them to be very comfortable and dry.

    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)
