Designed in our laboratories, we use a special rubber formulation to optimise the grip and traction of this sole. We systematically research the best compromise to progress on muddy ground (grip) as on dry ground (traction).
Designed for hiking use
Our hiking boots are designed for use on hiking trails. Indeed, we choose the components of the sole and upper of our boots and test them to ensure that they are ideally suited to walking on loose trails (e.g. unpaved forest paths) or rocky trails (e.g. rocky coastal paths). Road use (tarmac) may lead to premature wear on your boots and cause discomfort. They are not suitable for mountain walking.
Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: attachment of eyelets and webbing, assembly, toxicology, UV resistance, sole and upper component abrasion, accelerated ageing. These tests allow us to improve the quality of our products and prevent premature wear of our hiking shoes.
Which pair of socks is suitable for the Quechua NH100 boots?
These shoes are slightly breathable, but not enough to evacuate all humidity created by your perspiration. Preferably use the Hike 50 Mid socks: they contain moisture-absorbing cotton and have a reverse terry-knit construction under the sock that wicks moisture away from your foot. They are also high enough to protect your ankle from the shoe. It is an excellent combination to reduce the chance of blisters.
Our country walking boots promise one thing and that’s heightened comfort for the wearer; to this end, we have included different ingredients in this boot to take care of your feet such as the EVA foam insole (flexible thermoplastic) and the heel pad in the same material.
We have also made the insole removable for greater hygiene (washing possible).
OUR ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY
Because we are aware that we must act to preserve our playground, Quechua is committed to limiting the environmental impact of its products.
Today, this product is not eco-designed, but we work every day to make it more responsible: eco-design, repairability and sustainability are at the heart of our developments.
Tips for storage and maintenance
We recommend you store your boots in a dry, dark and, if possible, ventilated place.
Restrictions on use
Not recommended in the rain, high mountains or on tarmac
TESTS AND WARRANTY
Our Quechua global design centre is based in Passy, at the foot of Mont-Blanc in Haute Savoie. This location makes it a real meeting place for our teams (designers, product managers, engineers, etc) and outdoor sports enthusiasts.
A great asset for designing quality products for your treks, and bringing you all our expertise.
To meet your requirements, Quechua products are tested out in the heart of nature in the type of conditions you may encounter during your hikes.
Our teams, as well as a tester panel (made up of partners, ambassadors and customers) test products throughout their development until they go to market.
These boots have been approved by hikers on forest trails to ensure their comfort and durability.
