    Product feature
    1. Waterproofing test
      Footwear waterproofing test: tested in the laboratory and genuine usage conditions, equipped with waterproof and breathable layer, to offer excellent protection from the rain. Our Field Test Missions team up the product manager with people who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products. 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.
    2. 3 levels of waterproofing
      During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2,000 flexes (around 2 hours of walking), 4,000 flexes (around 4 hours of walking) and 8,000 flexes (around 8 hours of walking). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
    3. Waterproofing level
      The Forclaz 100 Woman's High boot is waterproof for 4000 flexes.
    4. Buying tips
      Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models or sizes if necessary. Check two comfort points: the base of the heel and the front part of the foot going down. Avoid all pressure points when trying them on. Don't hesitate to walk around the store. Gradually start using you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.
    5. What size should I choose?
      For hiking, you may need a size larger than your usual size to guarantee optimal comfort while going downhill, and avoid your toes bumping the end of the shoes. Tip: keep your toenails short, and before going downhill at any time, check that your laces are tight enough to stop your feet slipping down towards the front of the shoes.
    6. Field test
      All our shoes undergo use and comfort tests carried out by users who represent the target market in conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our Field Test Missions team up the product manager with people who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products.
    7. Laboratory test
      Other laboratory tests are also conducted to approve the quality of the following components: removal of eyelets and straps, glueing, toxicology, UV resistance, sole an upper component abrasion, premature ageing.

    • Just as good as pairs 3 times the price

      Claire (United Kingdom)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Comfortable and so far feethave stayed dry. Mud brushes off easily too.
    • Too heavy and hurt my uncle

      Jimena (United Kingdom)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      When I tried these shoes on the shop they felt very comfortable. I used them to commute every day for about 3 weeks before I started the hiking.
      Unfortunately after my first day of hiking both shoes felt too tight and I could not lace them up any more as it was too uncomfortable. The left shoe was worse as it hurt my big toe nail (it got bruised) and my ankle got swollen.
      The hike was only 5 days and I did about 5 hours each day.
      too heavy and unconfortable
      Response of the brand
      Hi, Sorry to hear about your experience with the Forclaz 100 hiking boot, I hope you still enjoyed your hike. Please drop back in store as I am sure we can find a more suitable boot for you. From personal experience, on mid to long distance multi-day hikes feet can swell by an extra size causing discomfort should the boot be slightly too small. It took me a while before I could determine whether this was the case or not however I now always go a half size larger for such expeditions. I hope this helps and thanks for your feedback, Chris.
