Crosscontact sole

Sole design that has been the subject of extensive research in our laboratories, combined with a specific rubber formulation to offer a better compromise in terms of grip and traction. The design of the sole of the Forclaz 500 Helium will offer more grip than traction. Definition > Traction: this prevents slipping on soft ground (wet or dry). Grip: not slipping on hard ground (wet or dry).

EVOFIT technology

the inner foam, stretch mesh and exterior design are tailored to perfectly conform to the shape of your foot. This is combined with a welded film to provide good support and maximum comfort.

Buying and fitting advice?

Try on both boots, while standing, with the socks worn for hiking. Try several models in several sizes if needed. Check the following two areas of comfort: the heel and the front of the foot when going downhill. There should be no compression points when fitting. Don't hesitate to walk around the store. Wear your boots for increasingly long periods to wear them in.

Which size should you choose?

For hiking, do not hesitate to take one size above your usual size to ensure optimal comfort when going downhill and prevent your toes from hitting the front of the boot. Advice: keep your nails short and, before making your descent, check that your lacing prevents your foot from sliding towards the front of the boot.

Test in the field

The comfort of all our shoes is tested when trying them on and in use by typical users under the real-life conditions you will encounter in use. Our Mission Tests bring together the product manager with people who are not affiliated with Quechua to test, develop and approve the products.

Laboratory test

Further laboratory tests are also conducted to validate the following: tearing of eyelets and straps, gluing, toxicology, resistance to UV rays, abrasion of the sole and upper components, accelerated ageing.
