TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

Breathable boots for optimal thermal comfort

Thermal comfort is a balance between the warmth of the boots and its ability to let the foot breathe. Too much heat or not enough breathability means that damp accumulates and cold can set in. We have designed your shoes with your regular and at times intense activity in mind, with a membrane which prevents water ingress and lets damp out.

Can you be sure that your boots are warm enough for your winter hikes?

We have chosen an ultra-warm lining and high volume encouraging insulation to give you effective protection from the cold.

We tested it in the laboratory and in the field with our user representatives. We checked the temperature down to which it stays comfortable when you're stationary and when you're walking, as this varies a lot: -14°C when static and -24°C when moving. We also took into account how temperature is felt differently by men and women.

How can I be sure that my boots are 100% waterproof?

We made sure that your boots are waterproof by conducting laboratory tests to simulate walking with the boots half submerged in water. We also conducted field tests to measure wear and ageing.

How does the SNOWCONTACT technology used on the boot sole help me?

SNOWCONTACT soles are made with a specific component and stud pattern that is designed to ensure the best possible grip and traction. SNOWCONTACT soles are more effective than traditional soles on snow. When walking on ice, the only way to ensure optimum safety is to add anti-slip grips to your boots.

How do I choose the right footwear for snow hiking?

To be well equipped in winter, we recommend that you follow these guidelines :

Warmth: warmth provided by a warm pair of socks (ideally containing a suitable percentage of wool)

Breathability: Choose the sock according to the intensity of the hike and make sure you wear a breathable model to minimise moisture.

Boot height: adapt the height of the sock to the height of the upper and preferably choose high models if you want more protection.

How do your boots protect you from outdoor conditions?

Your shoes are designed with leather and a membrane to guarantee waterproofing and breathability. A membrane is an extremely fine component (5 to 25 micrometres) affixed to the inside of a fabric that prevents water from entering while letting moisture escape. Their high upper with an elastic gaiter provides good protection against the cold and prevents snow entering, while the mid-sole gives you perfect insulation. Your feet will be well protected, warm and dry.

How to dry the inside of your shoe.

Shoes can become heavy while they’re being worn in the wet (condensation and perspiration)

If your boots are very wet, we advise you to remove the insole, fill the upper with balls of newspaper and change them regularly. The paper will pump out moisture and speed up drying.

Never put the shoes too close to a heat source, but leave them in a warm, dry and ventilated place.

How to preserve the technical qualities of my boots?

A fabric's water repellent property is its capacity to make water run off its surface without seeping in. As a result, the fabric does not soak up water & stays light, breathable & warm. The water repellent property is achieved by treating the fabric's exterior. This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the boot. Products (spray or liquid) for this purpose are available in our stores.

What is the difference between traction and grip?

The traction of the boots depends on the number and shape of the studs. The grip is dependent on the materials of the sole and the tread pattern, like the tyres of your car. Traction optimises propulsion, prevents the boot from slipping backwards when going uphill and stabilises the boot.

Grip prevents the boot from slipping and skidding on smooth ground or in demanding conditions (rain, snow, ice) by giving the sole grip.

Which type of grip and traction does this boot provide?

Equipped with SNOWCONTACT soles, your boots are designed for maximum grip comfort for hiking and traction on snow. The location and height of the studs (5 mm) is inspired by lynx feet and are spaced strategically for optimal grip when hiking on snow on steep terrain. The surface and layout of the studs are designed to perfectly grip the layer of hard snow and evacuate excess water to avoid slipping.

Why choose a leather snow hiking shoe?

Leather is ultra-comfortable, durable (natural material) and flexible for greater comfort.

this material is waterproof and naturally breathable.

Warm in winter and cool in mid-season, the leather naturally regulates the temperature of the shoe.

We advise you to brush your shoes well (soft brush) to maintain them and maximise their longevity.

Why is it important to be well supported in a hiking shoe?

The support provided by your shoe is essential for your comfort when walking. Indeed, good support optimises your steps on hilly terrain (ascent and descent), prevents your foot from sliding in the shoe and reduces the occurrence of blisters. There is less loss in the transmission of your energy to the shoe and therefore less fatigue. This is especially important when you are snowshoeing.

Will your boots withstand regular use over the long-term?

Our engineers conduct laboratory tests to ensure that the product fully complies with your satisfaction in use. Our verifications include the following elements: tearing eyelets and straps, gluing, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion resistance of outsole and upper components, accelerated ageing.
