TECHNICAL INFORMATION
Flex concept

Upper and sole construction offering lateral flexion, better respecting the natural movement of your foot

Cushioning

Double cushioned to bring you maximum comfort throughout your hikes. A full-foot EVA midsole combined with double-density EVA in the heel ensures excellent cushioning.

Waterproofing test

Footwear waterproofing test: laboratory and field-tested shoes with a breathable, waterproof membrane to ensure optimum protection from the rain. First step: the boots are immersed in water while internal air pressure is applied: the shoe is checked to ensure that no bubbles form on the surface of the footwear. 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.

Waterproofing level

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 the product is dry. The Forclaz Flex waterproof shoe has surpassed a level of 4000 movements.

Prolonging waterproofness

A shoe's waterproofing is often undermined by water getting in from the top of the shoe. To keep your feet dry longer, we recommend using a gaiter or waterproof mini gaiter to protect the top of the shoe and prevent water from getting in, as well as pebbles, sand etc. We also recommend using a re-waterproofing spray a few times a year, to restore the original water-repellent qualities and help prevent external stains.

Buying tips

Try on both shoes, standing up, wearing hiking socks. Try several styles and sizes, if required. 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.

What shoe size do I choose?

For hiking, try taking one shoe size up from your usual to ensure optimum comfort when going downhill and to prevent your toes from hitting the toe box. Tip: keep your toenails short, and before descending check that your lacing will stop your foot from sliding towards the front of the shoe.
