Product feature
  1. Measurement of the thermal insulation of our shoes:
    Based on tests on how the cold is felt in the field and in the laboratory with a panel of users, we measure the thermal resistance of our shoes at rest (static) and in activity (dynamic). It is now possible to know precisely up to what temperature your shoes protect you. Temperature limits of comfort for your shoes are indicated. We take into account differences in sensation between men and women in our data.
  2. Footwear waterproofing test:
    Tested in the laboratory, the shoes give you an optimal impermeability. First immersed in water under air pressure, they are checked for bubbles in the surface of the boot. Then they are placed on a mechanical arm simulating walking, half immersed in water. We then check if the inside of the shoe remains perfectly dry. These laboratory tests are supplemented with use and aging tests on the field.
  3. 3 levels of waterproofing:
    During the impermeability test, we tested 3 levels of impermeability, 2000 flexions (about 4 km of walking), 4000 flexions (about 8 km of walking) and 8000 flexions (about 16 km of walking).
  4. Level of impermeability of the shoe:
    This model of shoe has been tested up to 8,000 flexions equivalent to 16 km of walking.
  5. SNOWCONTACT technology:
    SNOWCONTACT soles are designed from a specific component and a cleat design adapted to ensure the best possible grip and adherence. SNOWCONTACT soles are more effective than traditional soles on snow. In case of use on ice, only the addition of anti-slip grips will ensure optimal safety.
  6. Field tests:
    This shoe has been tested on the field in climatic conditions adapted to its use by hikers accompanied by the product manager. We analyse in particular the technical elements of the shoe to validate the product in relation to its specifications and the feedback that you send us.
  7. Laboratory tests:
    Our engineers conduct laboratory tests to fully guarantee your usage satisfaction. We validate among others the following elements: eyelets and straps support, collage, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of the sole, components of the upper and accelerated ageing.
