Product benefits
  1. Cushioning
    Full-length cushioning for maximum comfort.
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 the needs are not the same, we systematically seek the best compromise to walk on natural (forest path type) and mineral pathway furniture (coastal path type).
  2. Our eco-design actions
    For these NH500 2018 boots, we chose more environmentally-friendly components: - inside of the upper in recycled polyester (100%) - outsole in recycled rubber (30%)
  3. Designed for use on natural trails
    Our hiking boots are designed for use on natural trails. Indeed, we choose and test the components of the sole and the upper of our boots to best adapt to hiking on soft trails (forest paths made of earth) or mineral trails (rocky coastal footpaths). Road use (bitumen) can accelerate the wear of your boots and cause you discomfort. Not suitable for mountain hikes.
  4. Laboratory test
    Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: tearing of the eyelets and straps, gluing, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of the sole and the components of the upper, accelerated ageing. These tests allow us to improve the quality of our products, and prevent premature wear of our hiking boots.
  5. What is the origin of our leather?
    We use a leather called "split velour". It has a fluffy, silky feel. The leather of this boot is of bovine origin. We do not kill animals to get this leather: we only use waste from the food industry.
  6. How to look after leather hiking boots?
    After your hikes, we advise you to: - Leave to dry away from any heat source - On fully dry leather, scrub vigorously with a stiff brush to remove mud and dirt - Use a crepe brush or nubuck gum to remove stains - For persistent stains, clean with a brush and some lukewarm water - Leave to dry - Brush again with a stiff brush - Use a waterproofing spray: this will give a shine to your leather and liven up its colour.
  7. The boot/sock combination has an important role.
    There are numerous causes of blisters when hiking: rubbing, a folded sock, moisture, size too small or too big... It is therefore important to choose the right size and a sock material adapted to your hiking boots.
  8. How to choose the size of your hiking socks?
    You need to choose a sock size adapted to your foot to avoid any extra folding of the sock: either because the sock is too big and so there is too much material around your foot, or because the sock is too small and is pulled towards the inside of the boot.
  9. How to choose the material of your hiking socks?
    You need to manage humidity levels when out hiking: we perspire, it's often inevitable. If your boot is breathable, it will wick away moisture from your perspiration: so you have to choose a light and breathable sock as well If your boot is fairly waterproof, to protect you from the rain, you will not make the same choice: you need to choose a sock that will absorb your perspiration then move it away as much as possible from your foot.
  10. Which pair of socks goes with the NH500 boot?
    These boots offer a little breathability but not enough to wick away all the moisture in your perspiration. So you should go for NH500 low or mid socks: they contain moisture-absorbing cotton and have a terry construction under the sock that keeps moisture away from your foot. And they are high enough to protect your ankle from the boot. It is an excellent combination to reduce the appearance of blisters.
