TECHNICAL INFORMATION
Waterproofing test

Footwear waterproofing test: laboratory- and field-tested, shoes with a breathable, waterproof membrane ensure you have optimum protection from the rain. First, the shoe is immersed in water while internal air pressure is applied to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the footwear. Next, shoes are fitted to a mechanical arm, half immersed in water, which simulates walking, in order to test that the inside remains perfectly dry.

3 levels of waterproofing

During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexes (around 2 hours of walking), 4000 flexes (around 4 hours of walking) and 8000 flexes (around 8 hours of walking). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.

Waterproofing level

The Forclaz 100 High waterproof boot goes beyond 4000 flexes.

Prolonging waterproofness

A shoe's waterproofing is often undermined by water getting in from the top of the shoe. To keep your feet dry for longer, it is therefore advisable to use a gaiter or waterproof mini gaiter to protect the top of the shoe and prevent water from getting in, and also pebbles, sand etc. It is also advisable to use a re-waterproofing spray a few times a year, to restore the original water-repellent qualities and combat external stains.

Field tests

All our shoes are tested for comfort and use by representative users under conditions identical to those found when in use.
Our Missions Tests link up the product manager with people who are not affiliated to Quechua to test, develop and approve the products.

Laboratory test

Other laboratory tests are also conducted to approve the quality of the following components: torn eyelets and straps, bonding, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of the sole and the components of the upper, accelerated aging.

Buying tips

Try on both shoes, standing up, wearing hiking socks. 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. Wear your shoes in gradually during the first hikes, to mould them to your foot.
