    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.

    6. Buying tips
      For hiking, don't hesitate to try a size above your usual size for maximum comfort in descents and to prevent your toes from touching the front of the boot. Advice: nails must be cut short, and before descending, check that the laces stop the foot from slipping forward to the front of the boot.
    7. What shoe size should I choose?
      For hiking, don't hesitate to try a size above your usual size for maximum comfort in descents and to prevent your toes from touching the front of the boot. Advice: 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.
    8. Field tests
      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.
    9. 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, resistance to abrasion of the outsole and upper components, accelerated ageing.

      Brilliant boots. Bought them a few weeks ago, have been on several walks. Great traction. Did not need breaking in, comfortable from the first time wearing. Walked 22 km yesterday, suitable for all terrain, waterproof to the end, through muddy fields. Couldn't fault.

      They look good and so far they have performed well. They are comfortable and lightweight. I think they will be ideal for my walking holiday in Tuscany. They have a fairly robust scuff/mud guard on the front and I'm sure if I used them in wet weather they wouldn't let me down

      Lovely comfy shoes 3rd pair of Quechua bought just love the reasonable price and the quality is great. This pair was in the sale can only think its because they are a bit narrower than normal but just means no need for 2 pairs of socks I usually wear.

      I have been using Quechua's ever since they came into India. I not only use them for trekking but for my regular walks as well. They are comfortable, easy on the feet and give complete support to the ankle. After using Quechua's other shoes just do not seem right.
