TECHNICAL INFORMATION

Sole grip

The sole design that has been the subject of extensive research in our laboratories, combined with a specific rubber composition to optimise grip and traction. Because all needs are different, we always search for the best compromise for muddy and dry terrain.

Waterproofing test

Having been tested in the laboratory and in use, the boots equipped with NOVADRY® provide optimal waterproofing and breathability. 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. Then they are placed on a mechanical arm that simulates walking and half immersed in water to check that the inside of the shoe remains perfectly dry.

3 levels of waterproofing

During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing, i.e. 2000 flexes (about 2 hours of walking), 4000 flexes (about 4 hours of walking) and 8000 flexes (about 8 hours of walking). Naturally, after this test or in use, the waterproofing of the boot will be restored when it is dry again. The junior Forclaz 500 high shoes are waterproof to 4000 flexes.

Making waterproofing last longer

The waterproofing of shoes is often compromised because water gets in at the collar of the shoe. To keep your feet dry for longer, it is therefore advisable to use a waterproof gaiter or mini-gaiter that will prevent not only water from getting inside through the top, but also pebbles, sand, etc. It is advisable to use a waterproof spray several times a year. This restores the original water repellent properties and prevents staining.

Buying tips

Ask your child to try on both shoes, with the socks used for hiking. Try on several models or sizes if necessary. 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. Do not hesitate to have your child walk in the shop. Gradually increase the amount of time they wear the shoes during the first walks to break the shoes in.

Which size should you choose ?

For hiking, do not hesitate to choose one size above your usual size to ensure optimal comfort when going downhill and prevent your toes from hitting the front of the shoe. Advice: keep your toenails short and, before descending, check that your lacing prevents your foot from sliding forwards inside the shoe.

Laboratory test

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