Technical Information

Resistant soles for country trails

This sole’s design is the result of long-term research carried out in our laboratories. It is composed of a specific rubber formula which optimises grip and resistance. Since not all needs are the same, we are always looking for the best solution to develop on loose, country trails such as unpaved forest paths.

Designed for use on country trails

Our walking shoes are designed for use on country trails. Indeed, we choose the components of the sole and upper of our shoes 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 shoes and cause discomfort. They are not suitable for mountain walking.

Laboratory tests

Laboratory tests are conducted to test the following elements: tearing of the eyelets and straps, bonding, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of the sole and components of the upper, accelerated ageing. These tests allow us to improve the quality of our products and prevent premature wear of our hiking shoes.

To reduce our environmental impact

We have used environmentally-friendly components:
- Upper, laces and loops, tongue and support lining: 100% recycled polyester
- Inner sole: 85% recycled polyurethane foam
- Outer sole: 30% recycled rubber
These measures represent 31% of the weight of the shoe.
The use of recycled materials reduces the depletion of resources by recycling end-of-life materials. Technical use and quality are guaranteed.

What is the origin of our leather?

We use a leather called “nubuck”. It has a soft, silky feel.
The leather used in these shoes comes from cows. We do not kill any animals to obtain this leather: we only use leather waste from the agrofood industry. Leather for these shoes comes from French hide which is then tanned in Spain.

How to maintain your leather shoes?

After your hikes, we advise you to:
- Leave your shoes to dry near a heat source
- Brusquely brush, using a hard-bristled brush, the dry leather to remove any mud and dirt
- Use a soft-bristled brush or nubuck eraser to remove any stains
- If the stains are stubborn, clean them using a brush and a little warm water
- Leave to dry
- Brush again using a hard-bristled brush
- Spray with a waterproofing product: this will make the leather shine and bring out the colours

How to choose the size of my walking shoes?

Try on both shoes, standing up, with socks worn for hiking. Try on several styles and sizes if necessary. Check two comfort points:
- the base of the heel
- the front of the foot when going downhill
Avoid all compression points when trying on. Feel free to walk around the store. Break in your shoes gradually during their first hikes to adapt them to your foot.

The shoe/sock combination plays an important role

There are multiple factors which may cause blisters when you are walking: rubbing, a crease in the sock, moisture, a shoe size that is too small or too big, etc. It is therefore important to choose the right size and to have socks made of the right material for your walking shoes.

How to choose the size of my walking socks?

You need to choose the correct sock size for your feet to avoid any extra folds forming on the sock: these folds may form because the sock is too big and therefore there is too much material around your foot, or because the sock so small and is pulled towards the inside of your foot.

How to choose the material of my walking socks?

Moisture must be effectively managed when walking: we sweat, it’s bound to happen. If your shoe is breathable, it will wick away moisture from your perspiration. It is therefore as important to choose a light and breathable sock. If your shoes are relatively waterproof, you will not make the same choice to protect you from the rain’s moisture: choose a sock which will absorb your sweat, and direct it as far as possible away from your foot.

What pair of socks goes well with the NH500 shoe?

Although the waterproof membrane of these shoes is breathable, they do not eliminate the moisture of your perspiration as effectively as a ventilated shoe. So, you should opt for the NH500 low or mid socks: they contain moisture-absorbing cotton and have a reverse terry-knit structure that wicks moisture away from your foot. They are high enough to protect your ankle from the shoe. It is an excellent combination to reduce the chance of blisters.

Our commitments

Test Product It’s in France, at the foot of Mont Blanc, that our design team conceives, creates and designs the Quechua products. We test them in the field with other hikers, to check their comfort and durability. In the Fontainebleau Forest or in Brittany, for example. We go on as many trails as possible, in all weather conditions. This creates plenty of opportunities for discussions to get your feedback which is used to plan our future products!
